Hydrogen saline treatment attenuates hyperoxia-induced retinopathy in mouse

In Animal studies, Eye / Ear by CHESS

Retinal neovascularization or retinopathy is a proliferative disorder of the retinal capillaries and is the primary cause of blindness. Some studies have shown that oxidative stress plays an important role in hyperoxia-induced retinal neovascularization. Previous reports have indicated that hydrogen has a therapeutic, antioxidant activity by selectively reducing hydroxyl radicals. This study examined the therapeutic effect of hydrogen saline on …

Protective effects of hydrogen in diabetic retinopathy in rat model

In Animal studies, Eye / Ear by CHESS

Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in the working population of the developed countries and also a significant cause of blindness in the elderly. This study aimed at examining the protective effect of H(2) saline on diabetic retinopathy in a streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat model. Sprague-Dawley male rats were divided into 3 groups as follows: (1) nondiabetic control group …
