Hydrogen plays a protective role in intestinal injury

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

This study investigated the protective effect of the hydrogen (H2) inhalation on intestinal injury in severe sepsis mice and its relationship with nuclear factor E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2)/heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1)/high mobility group protein B1 (HMGB1) pathway. The 280 male wild-type (WT) and Nrf2 knockout (Nrf2-KO) ICR mice (6-8 weeks old, 20-25 g weight) were assigned into 8 groups randomly (WT …

Hydrogen-rich water and radiation-induced cognitive dysfunction

In Animal studies, Nervous system by CHESS

The goal of this work was to determine whether hydrogen-rich water (HRW) could attenuate radiation-induced cognitive dysfunction in rats and to explore the underlying mechanisms. Rats received 30 Gy whole-brain irradiation using a 6-MeV electron beam. Either purified water or HRW (0.8-0.9 ppm) was administrated at 10 min prior to irradiation, as well as a daily HRW treatment after irradiation …

Hydrogen-rich water affects I3K/AKT signaling in myocardial injury

In Animal studies, Cardiovascular by CHESS

The effects of hydrogen-rich water on PI3K/AKT-mediated apoptosis were studied in rats subjected to myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury (MIRI). Sixty rats were divided randomly into a hydrogen-rich water group and a control group. The hearts were removed and fixed in a Langendorff device. Hearts from the control group were perfused with K-R solution, and hearts from the hydrogen-rich water group was …

Korean red ginseng and hydrogen-rich water improve spermatogenesis

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

This study investigated the effect of hydrogen-rich Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) water (HRGW) mixture on the spermatogenesis and sperm motility of mice of different ages. Eighty young (3 month-old) and aged (12 month-old) male mice were randomly assigned to 4 groups (n =10 per group) including control group, hydrogen-rich water (HRW) group (10 mL/kg daily), KRG group (50 mg/kg daily) …

Hydrogen-rich water alleviates cyclosporine A-induced nephrotoxicity

In Animal studies, Kidney by CHESS

Oxidative stress induced by long-term cyclosporine A (CsA) administration is a major cause of chronic nephrotoxicity, which is characterized by tubular atrophy, tubular cell apoptosis, and interstitial fibrosis in the progression of organ transplantation. Although hydrogen-rich water (HRW) has been used to prevent various oxidative stress-related diseases, its underlying mechanisms remain unclear. This study investigated the effects of HRW on …

Metabolomics of HRW use in myocardial injury

In Animal studies, Cardiovascular by CHESS

To investigate the effect of hydrogen-rich water on myocardial tissue metabolism in a myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury (MIRI) rat model. Twelve rats were randomly divided into a hydrogen-rich water group and a control group of size 6 each. After the heart was removed, it was fixed in the Langendorff device, and the heart was perfused with 37 °C perfusion solution pre-balanced …

Protective effects of hydrogen on hepatotoxicity

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

Chlorpyrifos (CPF) is a organophosphate insecticide widely used in agriculture with attendant adverse health outcomes. Chronic exposure to CPF induces oxidative stress and elicits harmful effects, including hepatic dysfunction. Molecular hydrogen has been identified as a novel antioxidant which could selectively scavenge hydroxyl radicals. The aim of this study was to determine whether the intake of hydrogen-rich water (HRW) could …

Effects of long-term hydrogen intervention

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

The potential therapeutic effects of molecular hydrogen (H2) have now been confirmed in various human and animal-disease models. However, the effects of H2 on the physiological function in a normal state have been largely neglected. Hydrogen-rich water (HRW) intake and hydrogen inhalation (HI) are the most common used methods for hydrogen administration, the difference in the effects between HRW intake …

Hydrogen-rich saline solution and intestinal anastomosis

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

The authors investigated the effects of hydrogen-rich saline solution (HRSS) on intestinal anastomosis performed after intestinal ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI). Thirty Wistar albino female rats were randomly divided into five groups. Only laparotomy was performed in the Sham group. In the other four groups, an intestinal IRI was performed for 45 min by clamping the superior mesenteric artery. After intestinal …
