Plasma medicine is a multidisciplinary field of research that focuses on studies on the interaction of low-temperature plasmas with biological cells and tissues. Many advances took place in the last decade that promise to make cold plasma technology a basis for new medical therapies. However, many of the mechanisms whereby plasma affects cells and tissues are still not well understood. For this Special Issue of the journal Plasma, reseachers active in all aspects of the field of plasma medicine are invited to submit their latest results. Papers covering fundamental studies as well as papers discussing applications are welcome.
