Efficacy of inhaled hydrogen on neurological outcomes following brain ischemia during post-cardiac arrest

In Human studies, Nervous system by CHESS

Hydrogen gas inhalation (HI) improved survival and neurological outcomes in an animal model of post-cardiac arrest syndrome (PCAS). The feasibility and safety of HI for patients with PCAS was confirmed in a pilot study. The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of HI for patients with PCAS. The efficacy of inhaled HYdrogen on neurological outcome following BRain …

Hydrogen gas inhalation in acute cerebral infarction

In Human studies, Nervous system by CHESS

Molecular hydrogen (H2) acts as a therapeutic antioxidant. Inhalation of H2 gas (1-4%) was effective for the improvement of cerebral infarction in multiple animal experiments. Thus, for actual applications, a randomized controlled clinical study is desired to evaluate the effects of inhalation of H2 gas. Here, the authors evaluate the H2 treatment on acute cerebral infarction. Through this randomized controlled …

Hydrogen-rich water for improvements of mood, anxiety, and autonomic nerve function in daily life

In Human studies, Nervous system by CHESS

Health and a vibrant life are sought by everyone. To improve quality of life (QOL), maintain a healthy state, and prevent various diseases, evaluations of the effects of potentially QOL-increasing factors are important. Chronic oxidative stress and inflammation cause deteriorations in central nervous system function, leading to low QOL. In healthy individuals, aging, job stress, and cognitive load over several …

Molecular hydrogen inhalation in acute cerebral ischemia patients

In Human studies, Nervous system by CHESS

In animal experiments, use of molecular hydrogen (H2) has been regarded as quite safe and effective, showing benefits in multiple pathological conditions such as ischemia-reperfusion injury of the brain, heart, kidney and transplanted tissues, traumatic and surgical injury of the brain and spinal cord, inflammation of intestine and lung , degenerative striatonigral tissue and also in many other situations. However, …

Acute brain stem infarct sites treated with edaravone and hydrogen

In Human studies, Nervous system by CHESS

In acute stage of cerebral infarction, MRI indices (rDWI & rADC) deteriorate during the first 3-7 days after the ictus and then gradually normalize in approximately 10 days (pseudonormalization time), although the tissue is already infarcted. Since effective treatments improve these indices significantly and in less than the natural pseudonormalization time, a combined analysis of these changes provides an opportunity …

Molecular hydrogen therapy in Parkinson’s disease: a pilot study

In Human studies, Nervous system by CHESS

Oxidative stress is involved in the progression of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Recent studies have confirmed that molecular hydrogen (H₂) functions as a highly effective antioxidant in cultured cells and animal models. Drinking H₂-dissolved water (H₂-water) reduced oxidative stress and improved Parkinson’s features in model animals. In this a placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group clinical pilot study, the authors assessed the efficacy …
