Cold Plasma Cancer Therapy

Michael Keidar, Dayun Yan


Cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) emerges as a possible new modality for cancer treatment. This book provides a comprehensive introduction into the fundamentals of the CAP and plasma devices used in plasma medicine. An analysis of the mechanisms of plasma interaction with cancer and normal cells, including a description of possible mechanisms of plasma selectivity, is included. Recent advances in the field, the primary challenges and future directions are also presented.
