Cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) was shown to affect cells not only directly, but also indirectly by means of plasma pre-treated solution. This study investigated a new application of CAP generated in deionized (DI) water for the cancer therapy. In our experiments, the CAP solution was generated in DI water using helium as carrier gas. We report on the effects of this plasma solution in breast (MDA-MD-231) and gastric (NCI-N87) cancer cells. The results revealed that apoptosis efficiency was…

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

Cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) activated deionized (DI) water using helium (He), argon (Ar), and nitrogen (N2) as feeding gas for the cancer therapy shows that DI water treated by CAP with He feeding gas has a much stronger effect on apoptosis in precultured breast cancer cells and gastric cancer cells.

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.

Cold Atmospheric Plasma for Cancer Treatment: Molecular and Immunological Mechanisms

A variety of mechanisms behind the CAP cancer treatment, including apoptosis-related signaling pathways, the ROS/RNS-based “bystander effect,” ferroptosis regulation for lipid peroxidation, genetically DNA damage and cell cycle arrest, amino acid structural modification, calreticulin exposure and immune cell maturation, and necrosis are introduced.

Effect of non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma on MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells

The results suggest that non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma could strongly have cytotoxicity effect on cancerous breast cell and show that viability of breast cancer cells was significantly decreased after plasma treatment.

Effect of Plasma Activated Mist on Breast Cancer Cells

Plasma activated mist (PAMI) is generated by tiny water vapor droplets passing through cold atmospheric plasma discharge. The effect of PAMI is compared to direct plasma exposure during treatment of

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.

Liquids treated by atmospheric pressure plasma jet for bone cancer therapy

Preliminary results show that the atmospheric pressure plasma jet treated liquids contain different amounts of the studied reactive species depending on the treatment conditions and the medium employed, and can selectively kill bone cancer cells while conserving the viability of healthy bone cells.

Biological and medical applications of plasma-activated media, water and solutions

PAM is discussed as an anti-cancer, anti-metastatic, antimicrobial, regenerative medicine for blood coagulation and even as a dental treatment agent, and the role of PAM on cancer initiation cells, on the epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT), and when used for metastasis inhibition considering its anticancer effects.

Air cold atmospheric plasma with patterns for anaplastic squamous cell carcinoma treatment

Air cold atmospheric plasma with three different patterns for anaplastic squamous cell carcinoma treatment (VX2 cell line) showed that the air CAP with circle-pattern generated more active substances during at 60s treatment time, which resulted in a higher death rate of VX2 cells.

Selective Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer Cells by Plasma-Activated Saline Solutions

The presence of reactive oxygen species and reactive nitrogen species resulted in the anti-cancer properties of plasma-activated SSs and they were reported on human pancreas adenocarcinoma cancer cells line and human pancreatic duct epithelial normal cells line.

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

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.

Controlling plasma stimulated media in cancer treatment application

This study demonstrated the significant role of media in killing cancer cells via the CAP treatment by altering the concentration of fetal bovine serum in Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium and the temperature to store CAP stimulated media.

Cold plasma selectivity and the possibility of a paradigm shift in cancer therapy

The development of cold plasma tumour ablation has the potential of shifting the current paradigm of cancer treatment and enabling the transformation ofcancer treatment technologies by utilisation of another state of matter.

Principles of using Cold Atmospheric Plasma Stimulated Media for Cancer Treatment

Using larger wells on a multi-well plate, smaller gaps between the plasma source and the media and smaller media volume enabled to obtain a stronger anti-cancer CAPs media composition without increasing the treatment time, and cysteine was the main target of effective reactive species in theCAPs media.
