A spin-off of space research may help solve a huge medical problem. It turns out that a plasma, an form of ionized gas helps to heal chronic wounds by killing off multi-drug resistant bacteria and stimulating tissue growth.
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching are developing new applications for plasmas while doctors at Munich's Schwabing Hospital are testing plasma therapies on patients. The field of plasma medicine is already showing great promise.
