Abstract

The generation of gaseous mixtures containing nitric oxide (gNO) from different plasma sources has been widely used for various clinical applications. Concentrations of biologically active species generated in those discharges in addition to gNO were calculated for different gas temperatures. Synergistic actions of gNO with other plasma species are discussed. New therapeutic effects of gNO-containing plasmas achieved for the treatment of skin scars, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and sport injuries are reported.
