Cold atmospheric plasma activated deionized water using helium, argon, and nitrogen as feeding gas for cancer therapy

  title={Cold atmospheric plasma activated deionized water using helium, argon, and nitrogen as feeding gas for cancer therapy},
  author={Zhitong Chen},
Plasma activated medium, containing reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS), has been used for cancer treatment as an indirect treatment method. Here we report cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) activated deionized (DI) water using helium (He), argon (Ar), and nitrogen (N2) as feeding gas for the cancer therapy. Basic characteristics of CAP activated DI water with different feeding gases were diagnosed and the effects of three solutions on the breast cancer cells and…

Cold atmospheric plasma discharged in water and its potential use in cancer therapy

Cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) has emerged as a novel technology for cancer treatment. CAP can directly treat cells and tissue but such direct application is limited to skin or can be invoked as a

Effects of cold atmospheric plasma generated in deionized water in cell cancer therapy

The results revealed that apoptosis efficiency was dependent on the plasma exposure time and on the levels of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS and RNS).

Micro-sized cold atmospheric plasma source for brain and breast cancer treatment

It is revealed that uCAP treatment with a 20 mm length tube has a stronger effect than that of the 60 mm tube due to the synergetic effects of reactive species and free radicals.

Plasma medicine—current state of research and medical application

It was demonstrated that there is no increased risk of cold plasma application and, above all, there are no indications for genotoxic effects.

Cold atmospheric plasma for the ablative treatment of neuroblastoma.

Treatment of gastric cancer cells with nonthermal atmospheric plasma generated in water.

Findings show that the plasma generated in DI water with 30-min duration has the strongest effect on apoptosis in precultured human gastric cancer cells, and elevated levels of RNS may play a more significant role than ROS in the rate of cell death.

Atmospheric pressure dielectric barrier discharges interacting with liquid covered tissue

The interaction of plasmas with liquids is of increasing importance in biomedical applications. Tissues treated by atmospheric pressure dielectric barrier discharges (DBDs) in plasma medicine are

A Novel Micro Cold Atmospheric Plasma Device for Glioblastoma Both In Vitro and In Vivo

Initial observations establish the µCAP device as a potentially useful ablative therapy tool in the treatment of glioblastoma as well as boosting the applicability of the CAP method for brain tumors and reducing the gas flow rate and size of the plasma jet.

Tiny Cold Atmospheric Plasma Jet for Biomedical Applications

Conventional plasma jets for biomedical applications tend to have several drawbacks, such as high voltages, high gas delivery, large plasma probe volume, and the formation of discharge within the
