Protective effects of hydrogen rich water on the intestinal ischemia/reperfusion injury

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

This study aimed to investigate the protective effects of hydrogen rich water on the intestinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in a rat intestinal intussusception (II) model. Ninety Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly assigned into three groups (n = 30 per group). In sham group, rats received laparotomy, and the intestine was exposed for 15 minutes without II. In I/R + saline group …

Inhaled hydrogen ameliorates bowel dysfunction

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

Gastrointestinal dysmotility frequently occurs during sepsis and multiple organ failure, remaining a major cause of morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients. Previous studies have shown that hydrogen, a new therapeutic gas, can improve various organ damage associated with sepsis. In this study, the authors investigated the protective efficacy of inhaled hydrogen against lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced ileus. Sepsis was induced in …

Hydrogen-rich physiologic solution protects against postoperative ileus

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

Postoperative ileus, a transient impairment of bowel motility initiated by intestinal inflammation, is common after an abdominal operation and leads to increased hospital stays and costs. Hydrogen has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and potential therapeutic value. Solubilized hydrogen may be a portable and practical means of administering therapeutic hydrogen gas. The authors hypothesized that intraperitoneal administration of hydrogen-rich saline …

Hydrogen water accelerates oral wound healing

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

The wound healing process attempts to restore the integrity and function of the injured tissue. Additionally, proinflammatory cytokines, growth factors, and oxidative stress play important roles in wound healing. The aim of this study was to determine whether hydrogen-rich water intake induces the activation of the Nrf2/antioxidant defense pathway in rat palatal tissue, thereby reducing systemic oxidative stress and proinflammatory …

Injection of hydrogen-rich solution attenuates intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

Luminal preservation of the intestine is an attractive method to locally mitigate preservation injury and ischemic-reperfusion injury in small bowel transplantation (SBT) because this method has a potential to maintain the intestinal graft integrity. Hydrogen is noted as an antioxidant material by reducing hydroxyl radicals. Authors hypothesized that hydrogen-containing solution can be an optimum material for luminal preservation method in …

Hydrogen solution protects against intestinal injury

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

Intestinal tissue got largely decreased blood supply in uncontrolled hemorrhagic shock, because of limited blood mainly supporting brain, heart, kidney etc. This makes intestine as the primary injury target after uncontrolled hemorrhagic shock. However, limited studies focus on how to protect intestine against hemorrhagic shock. Ringer’s solution, pentoxifylline and hypertonic saline are widely used to resuscitate in haemorrhagic shock and …

Therapeutic potential of hydrogen-rich saline on pancreatic damage

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

This study aimed to investigate the therapeutic potential of hydrogen-rich saline on pancreatic ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. Eighty heterotopic pancreas transplantations (HPT) were performed in syngenic rats. The receptors were randomized blindly into the following three groups: the HPT group and two groups that underwent transplantation and administration of hydrogen-rich saline (HS, >0.6 mM, 6 mL/kg) or normal saline (NS, 6 mL/kg) …

Combined early fluid resuscitation and hydrogen inhalation attenuates lung and intestine injury

In Animal studies, Gut, Lung by CHESS

This study evaluated the effects of combined early fluid resuscitation and hydrogen inhalation on septic shock-induced lung and intestine injuries. Wistar male rats were randomly divided into four groups: control group (Group A, n = 15); septic shock group (Group B, n = 15); early fluid resuscitation-treated septic shock group (Group C, n = 15); and early fluid resuscitation and …

Effects of hydrogen on acute pancreatitis

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of acute pancreatitis (AP). As an ideal exterminator of poisonous free radicals, hydrogen can clearly reduce the degree of oxidative damage caused by severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) and lessen the presence of inflammatory cytokines. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects and mechanism of hydrogen-rich saline on SAP …

Protective effects of hydrogen-rich saline on necrotizing enterocolitis

In Animal studies, Gut by CHESS

The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that hydrogen-rich saline (HRS) might have protective effects on the development of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in a neonatal rat model. NEC was induced in male newborn Sprague-Dawley rats by formula feeding, exposure to asphyxia and cold stress. Sixty-four rat pups were divided randomly into four groups: C+NS (n=11), C+H2 (n=11), …
