Hydrogen-rich saline solution attenuates renal ischemia-reperfusion injury

In Animal studies, Kidney by CHESS

Renal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R), an important cause of acute kidney injury, is unavoidable during various types of operations, including renal transplantation, surgical revascularization of the renal artery, partial nephrectomy, and treatment of suprarenal aortic aneurysms. Exacerbation of I/R injury is mediated by reactive oxygen species (ROS). A recent study has shown that hydrogen has antioxidant properties. In this study, we tested …

Saturated hydrogen saline attenuates endotoxin-induced acute liver dysfunction in rats

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

To determine the effect of saturated hydrogen saline on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced acute liver dysfunction, rats were divided into control, LPS, and LPS plus saturated hydrogen saline (LPS+H(2)) groups. Treatment with saturated hydrogen saline prolonged the median survival time and reduced liver dysfunction. Moreover, saturated hydrogen saline significantly reduced pathological alterations in liver tissues, the number of ballooned hepatocytes, serum tumor …

Hydrogen prevents selenite-induced cataract

In Animal studies, Eye / Ear by CHESS

The aim of this study was to investigate the potential antioxidative effect and mechanism for the protective effects of hydrogen saline on selenite-induced cataract in rats. Sprague-Dawley rat pups were divided into the following groups: control (Group A), selenite induced (Group B), and selenite plus hydrogen saline treated (Group C). Rat pups in Groups B and C received a single …
