Low temperature atmospheric pressure plasmas have emerged in recent years as a new
powerful technology for a wide range of biomedical applications. The potential therapeutic value
of these plasmas has already been demonstrated for applications ranging from sterilization of
medical equipment to new cancer treatments. With animal and clinical trials underway, the
hopes for this new technology are high and the field is developing very rapidly.
