Hydrogen-rich saline attenuates radiation-induced male germ cell loss in mice

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

Recent studies suggest that H2 (hydrogen) has a potential as a novel radioprotector without known toxic side effects. The present study was designed to examine the underlying radioprotective mechanism of H2 and its protective role on irradiated germ cells. Produced by the Fenton reaction and radiolysis of H2O, hydroxyl radicals (•OH) were identified as the free radical species that were …

Effectiveness of oral and topical hydrogen for sports-related soft tissue injuries

In Human studies, Muscle by CHESS

Because hydrogen therapy has been found beneficial for the treatment of inflammation, ischemia-reperfusion injury, and oxidative stress in humans, it seems useful to evaluate the effects of exogenously administered hydrogen as an element in the immediate management of sports-related soft tissue injuries. The main aim of this pilot study was to examine the effects of 2-week administration of hydrogen on …

Protective effects of hydrogen-rich saline on pulmonary hypertension

In Animal studies, Lung by CHESS

Hydrogen-rich saline has been reported to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and effectively protect against organ damage. Oxidative stress and inflammation contribute to the pathogenesis and/or development of pulmonary hypertension. In this study, we investigated the effects of hydrogen-rich saline on the prevention of pulmonary hypertension induced by monocrotaline in a rat model. In male Sprague-Dawley rats, pulmonary hypertension was …
