Cold plasmas for applications in biomedicine

Dr F. Clément

Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour

IPREM – LCABIE, Plasmas et Applications

Pau, France


This presentation will show the international context of plasmas used today for biomedical applications: interactions between « plasmas » and « biology and medicine » are currently largely studied. Scientific communities gather together in order to develop this emerging field which can be distinguished in three important topics:

-          Decontamination/Sterilization:

« living treatment on inert surfaces »

This topic consists of treatments of living microorganisms and the efforts focus on the understanding of the interaction mechanisms between cells and excited gas issued from cold plasmas.

-          Surface engineering (biomaterials and tissue engineering):

« inert surface treatments for living applications »

This topic consists of treatments of materials for biocompatible applications by modify the physical and chemical properties of different surface materials

-          Plasmas for medicine:

« living treatment on living surfaces »

This topic consists of a new field of applications for therapeutic applications: haematology, dermatology, oncology,…
