Hydrogen-rich saline has a neuroprotective effect on retinal ischemia-reperfusion injury

In Animal studies, Eye / Ear by CHESS

Overactivation of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 (PARP-1), as a result of sustained DNA oxidation in ischemia-reperfusion injury, triggers programmed cell necrosis and apoptosis. The present study was conducted to demonstrate whether hydrogen-rich saline (HRS) has a neuroprotective effect on retinal ischemia reperfusion (RIR) injury through inhibition of PARP-1 activation. RIR was induced by transient elevation of intraocular pressure in rats. …

Hydrogen protects skin from partial necrosis induced by inflammation

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

Many pathways have been reported involving the effect of hydrogen-rich saline on protecting skin flap partial necrosis induced by the inflammation of ischemia/reperfusion injury. This study focused on the influence of hydrogen-rich saline treatment on apoptosis pathway of ASK-1/JNK and Bcl-2/Bax radio in I/R injury of skin flaps. Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups. Group 1 was …

Hydrogen-rich saline attenuated subarachnoid hemorrhage-induced early brain injury

In Animal studies, Nervous system by CHESS

Early brain injury (EBI), highlighted with inflammation and apoptosis, occurring within 72┬áh after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), is associated with the prognosis of SAH. Recent studies have revealed that hydrogen-rich saline (HS) exerted multiple neuroprotective properties in many neurological diseases including SAH, involved to anti-oxidative and anti-apoptotic effect. The authors have previously reported that HS could attenuate neuronal apoptosis as well …

Protective effects of hydrogen against severe burns

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

Early acute kidney injury (AKI) in severely burned patients predicts a high mortality that is multi-factorial. Hydrogen has been reported to alleviate organ injury via selective quenching of reactive oxygen species. This study investigated the potential protective effects of hydrogen against severe burn-induced early AKI in rats. Severe burn were induced via immersing the shaved back of rats into a …
