The DNA molecule is observed to be very susceptible to short-term exposures to an atmospheric pressure plasma jet.
A nonthermal plasma , cold plasma or non-equilibrium plasma is a plasma which is not in thermodynamic equilibrium , because the electron temperature is much hotter than the temperature of heavy species ions and neutrals. As only electrons are thermalized, their Maxwell-Boltzmann velocity distribution is very different from the ion velocity distribution. In the context of food processing , a nonthermal plasma NTP or cold plasma is specifically an antimicrobial treatment being investigated for application to fruits, vegetables and meat products with fragile surfaces. While the applications of nonthermal plasma were initially focused on microbiological disinfection,  newer applications such as enzyme inactivation,  protein modification  and pesticide dissipation  are being actively researched.

The emerged field of non-thermal plasma NTP shows great potential in the alteration of cell redox status, which can be utilized as a promising therapeutic implication. In recent years, the NTP field considerably progresses in the modulation of immune cell function leading to promising in vivo results. In fact, understanding the underlying cellular mechanisms triggered by NTP remains incomplete. In order to boost the field closer to real-life clinical applications, there is a need for a critical overview of the current state-of-the-art. In this review, we conduct a critical analysis of the NTP-triggered modulation of immune cells.
