Influence of plasma irradiation on silkworm

研究成果: Contribution to journalArticle査読

抄録

Silkworms have recently been proposed as an animal model for safety testing in basic research. We propose using silkworms for in vivo trials of direct plasma treatment. In this study, the influence of plasma irradiation on silkworms was investigated using a non-thermal atmospheric pressure plasma. Silkworm survival rate decreased with increasing low-frequency voltage and plasma irradiation period. Further investigation of the plasma-generated agents (oxygen related radicals, UV light, and charged particles), revealed that the contribution of charged particles significantly increases silkworm mortality.
