Hydrogen-rich saline as an innovative therapy for cataract?

In Review papers by CHESS

Cataract is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Increasing evidence indicates that oxidative stress is an important risk factor contributing to the development of cataract. Moreover, the enhancement of the antioxidant defense system may be beneficial to prevent or delay the cataractogenesis. The term oxidative stress has been defined as a disturbance in the equilibrium status of oxidant/antioxidant systems …

Hydrogen-rich saline attenuates hepatic injury

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

The objective of this study was to study the role of hydrogen-rich saline (HRS) on acute hepatic injury (AHI) in acute necrotizing pancreatitis (ANP). Rats were used for this study and an ANP model was induced by injecting 5% sodium taurocholate into the biliary-pancreatic duct. Experiments were performed in 3 groups: sham, ANP, and ANP + HRS (HRS). Animals were …

Protective effect of hydrogen rich saline solution on ovarian ischemia reperfusion

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

The present study aimed to investigate the effects of hydrogen rich saline solution (HRSS) in a rat model of ovarian ischemia-reperfusion injury. Thirty-six female Wistar-albino rats were grouped randomly, into six groups of six rats. The groups were classified as: sham (S), hydrogen (H), torsion (T), torsion/detorsion (TD), hydrogen-torsion (HT), and hydrogen-torsion/detorsion (HTD). Bilateral adnexal torsion was performed for 3h …

Estimation of hydrogen concentration using an airtight tube

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

Hydrogen exerts beneficial effects in disease animal models of ischemia-reperfusion injury as well as inflammatory and neurological disease. Additionally, molecular hydrogen is useful for various novel medical and therapeutic applications in the clinical setting. In the present study, the hydrogen concentration in rat blood and tissue was estimated. Wistar rats were orally administered hydrogen super-rich water (HSRW), intraperitoneal and intravenous …
