Cold Plasma Can Help Treat Non-Healing Wounds and Trigger Cellular Regeneration

Submitted by: Odio @ 12:58 AM | Friday, March 10, 2017 | (url: https://futurism....)


Non-healing wounds are troublesome to treat, with current methods teetering between extremely difficult and impossible, but cold plasma might be able to change all that.

Researchers have attempted to use cold atmospheric-pressure plasma a partially ionized gas with a proportion of charged particles close to 1 percent and a temperature of 99,726C (179,540F) for medical treatment before, but never specifically for non-healing wounds. Apart from confirming the bactericidal properties of cold plasma and showing that cells and tissues have a high resistance to it, those earlier studies yielded non-conclusive results.

By focusing on application pattern, a team of researchers from Russias Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) were able to reach more definite conclusions, establishing that cold plasma could indeed help heal non-healing wounds and trigger cellular regeneration.

To test their hypothesis that application was key, the researchers studied the effects of cold plasma treatment using two kinds of cells (connective tissue cells called fibroblasts and epithelial cells called keratinocytes) and three regimes of application. They were able to conclude that a single application was most effective in triggering regeneration and also observed that plasma treatment significantly reduced the levels of β-galactosidase, an enzyme that triggers cellular aging, in their samples.

For this to be even remotely practical you'd need some sort of phased-plasma rifle in the 40-watt range.

Or maybe in the 4MW range, and all focused on something the size of which is measured in pico's.

Hyperbaric chambers are the answer to most of mans problems

Yeah. Billions of years of evolution to deal with hypoxia, and you hyperoxia is the cure to all out ills. Sounds right...
