BACKGROUND Non-thermal dielectric-barrier discharge plasma (non-thermal plasma) is being investigated for use in wound healing. Alginate gel, already in clinical use, is non-toxic but has no meaningful antimicrobial property. This study reports that a non-thermal-plasma-treated alginate wound dressing has strong antimicrobial properties. METHODS Alginate… CONTINUE READING
