About this book

This book, written by key researchers in the field, provides a comprehensive analysis and overview of the state of the art of plasma-based cancer therapy. Recent progress in atmospheric plasmas has led to non-thermal or cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) devices with ion temperatures close to room temperature. In contrast to many existing anti-cancer approaches, CAP is a selective anti-cancer modality which has demonstrated significant potential in cancer therapy.

Written by a global, cross-disciplinary group of leading researchers, this book covers basic theory, generation, diagnostics, and simulation of cold atmospheric plasma, as well as their clinical application in cancer therapy, immunotherapy, and future outlook, giving a complete picture of the field.

It is meant for a broad audience, from students to engineers and scientists, who are interested in the emerging world of plasma medical applications. It presents recent advances, primary challenges, and future directions of this exciting, cutting-edge field.

About the authors

Michael Keidar is the A. James Clark Professor of Engineering at the George Washington University. His research concerns plasma medicine, advanced spacecraft propulsion, and plasma-based nanotechnology. He has authored over 280 journal articles, over 290 papers in refereed conference proceedings, 3 books, 2 book chapters, and 12 patents. He received the 2017 Davidson Award in Plasma Physics, and in 2016 he received the American Institute of Astronautics and Aeronautics (AIAA) Engineer of the Year Award for his work on micropropulsion, which resulted in the successful launch of a nanosatellite with plasma thrusters developed by his laboratory.
