Protective effect of saturated hydrogen saline against retinal damage

In Animal studies, Eye / Ear by CHESS

This study explored the effect of saturated hydrogen saline on blue light-induced retinal damage in rats. The retinal damage of rats was induced by blue light exposure for 6 hours and examined 8 hours, 16 hours and 24 hours after the exposure. One hundred female Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups. Group 1 included 30 rats received light …

Hydrogen saline is protective for acute lung ischaemia/reperfusion injuries

In Animal studies, Lung by CHESS

Protective effects of saturated hydrogen (H(2)) saline on cardiac ischaemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury have been demonstrated previously. This study was designed to show that hydrogen-rich saline is protective in preventing lung I/R injury in rats. Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats underwent 45 min occlusion of the right lung roots and 120 min reperfusion. Rats were divided randomly into three groups: sham-operated control …

Anti-inflammation effects of hydrogen saline

In Animal studies, Inflammation by CHESS

Oxidative stress is thought to play an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammation. Recent studies have found that hydrogen gas has the effect of eliminating free radicals. Whether hydrogen saline (more convenient to be used than hydrogen gas) has the anti-inflammation effect or not is still unknown. Carrageenan-induced paw oedema and LPS-activated macrophages are studied in this article. Injection …
