The 5th International Workshop on Plasma for Cancer Treatment, organized by the Leibniz Insitute for Plasma Science and Technology and the University Medicine Greifswald, was held from March 20-21, 2018 in Greifswald, Germany.

We had about 120 participants from 21 different countries and in sum 64 contibutions, inlcuding invited talks, oral presentations and posters.

The workshop covered the following topics:

  • Plasma sources and plasma equipment used for cancer treatment
  • Plasma-cancer interactions: experiments, modeling and simulation
  • Destruction of cancer cells by plasma
  • Mechanisms of plasma selectivity towards cancer cells
  • Plasma-liquid interaction / plasma chemistry in biological liquids / plasma activated media for cancer treatment
  • Clinical and animal studies of cancer treatment by plasma

With the aim of recognizing the work of students in the field of Plasma Medicine applied to cancer, the Bob Barker Best Student Paper Award was given to a student for the best poster presentation at IWPCT–2017 in Paris for the first time.

To continue this tradition, we awarded the Bob Barker Best Student Paper Award at IWPCT-2018 to Katharina Witzke for her Poster "Plasma Medical Oncology: Long-Term Results with Focus on Immunity Research".

The jury was composed of the members of the ISC and the TPC. The Award was supported by BioCon Valley GmbH.

In collaboration with Elsevier, the abstracts presented at the IWPCT 2018 were published in an abstract book as a supplement to Volume 9 of the Journal Clinical Plasma Medicine.

neoplas tools GmbH

neoplas tools GmbH is a spin-off of the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology (INP Greifswald). Since 2013 our company has been following an innovative approach to establish the application of cold physical plasma via a jet procedure as a new therapy method in medicine. Together with science we are working continuously on the further development of cold plasma therapy solutions in medical technology. Our kINPen® MED is the first CE certified atmospheric pressure plasma jet with a medical device approval for the treatment of chronic wounds and pathogen-induced diseases of the skin. This new and effective type of treatment supports wound healing and has proven to be an effective supplement to standard wound management.

Leibniz Health Technologies

Concrete technology solutions for urgent medical needs − this is the main focus of the 14 member institutes of the research alliance Leibniz Health Technologies. Together, they are pursuing the goal of improving medical care for patients. Using an interdisciplinary approach prevention, diagnosis and therapy shall grow together and thus increase the quality of life. The partners in the Leibniz Research Alliance “Health Technologies” have defined five interdisciplinary competence areas as central research pillars: Point-of-Care Technologies / Imaging Methods / Biomarkers /Plasma Medicine /Bioactive Materials. Those competence areas pursue a common goal: To apply results of fundamental research as quickly and efficiently as possible for use as medical technologies. In close coordination with industry, hospitals, insurance companies and politicians the research alliance develops health care technologies that are brought to market along a seamless innovation chain. In parallel, Leibniz Health Technologies investigates the social and economic consequences of new medical technologies in order to optimize their usefulness for the user and to create broad social acceptance for new technologies.
