Clinical cases of low-temperature plasma application. There are many clinical cases of low-temperature plasma application in medicine and cosmetology. In this article we will consider several interesting examples of the use of this technology.
One of the most common applications of low-temperature plasma is in the treatment of acne. Several studies confirm the effectiveness of this technology in fighting acne. In one study conducted in Japan, 30 patients received a treatment that included low-temperature plasma and were evaluated after 4 and 8 weeks of treatment. According to the results of the study, there was a reduction in acne and a decrease in inflammation in 86.7% of patients, indicating the high effectiveness of this procedure.
Another interesting clinical case using low-temperature plasma is the treatment of age spots. In 2017, a study was conducted in Italy in which 40 women with hyperpigmentation of the skin received treatment that included low-temperature plasma. After a 4-week course of treatment, a 38% reduction in age spots was observed, confirming the effectiveness of this technology.
As mentioned above, low-temperature plasma can be used to treat various skin conditions and scars. It can also be used in other medical fields such as oncology, ophthalmology, dentistry, and for disinfecting instruments.
In the field of oncology, low-temperature plasma can be used to treat various types of cancer. For example, low-temperature plasma can be used to reduce the size of tumors and destroy cancer cells. It can also help reduce the side effects of radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
In the field of ophthalmology, low-temperature plasma can be used to treat eye diseases such as conjunctivitis, keratitis, etc. For example, in one study low-temperature plasma was successfully used to treat conjunctivitis in rats.
In dentistry, low-temperature plasma can be used to treat gum diseases such as periodontitis. For example, in one study, low-temperature plasma was used to treat periodontitis in rats, resulting in reduced gum inflammation and improved dental health.
Finally, low-temperature plasma can be used to disinfect instruments and surfaces in medical facilities. For example, in one study, low-temperature plasma was used to disinfect medical instruments, resulting in a significant reduction of bacteria on them.
Thus, low-temperature plasma is a promising technology that can be used to treat a variety of skin and scar conditions, as well as in other areas of medicine. Although most studies have been conducted on animals, the results of these studies provide important data for evaluating the potential of low-temperature plasma in medicine. One of the most promising applications of low-temperature plasma is in the treatment of cancer. One study published in 2017 in Scientific Reports showed that low-temperature plasma can shrink the size of tumors in skin cancer and melanoma. In another study published in 2019 in the journal PLoS One, researchers studied the effectiveness of low-temperature plasma in treating lung cancer. They found that treating tumors with low-temperature plasma resulted in smaller tumors and fewer tumor cells.
Low-temperature plasma can also be used to treat infections such as hepatitis C and HIV infection. In 2015, the journal Antiviral Research published a study in which scientists found that low-temperature plasma could kill HIV cells without damaging healthy cells.
