Hydrogen-rich saline protects against small-scale liver injury

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

This research investigated the role of hydrogen-rich saline (HRS) on the endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) pathway and the effect of HRS on tissue injury in small Bama pig model of hepatic ischemia-reperfusion combined with partial hepatectomy. Eighteen healthy Bama miniature pigs were randomly divided equally into three groups: Sham, IRI, and HRS. Laparoscopic technique was employed to establish the model …

Hydrogen-rich saline for apoptosis induced by hepatectomy

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

Hepatic ischemia reperfusion injury (HIRI) occurs commonly in liver surgery and liver transplantation. Hydrogen, a safe and effective antioxidant, exerts a protective effect against liver injury. In this study, the authors investigated the role of hydrogen-rich saline (HRS) in apoptosis in a miniature pig model of laparoscopic HIRI upon hepatectomy. Bama miniature pigs were randomly assigned to sham, I/R and …

Influence of hydrogen-rich saline on hepatocyte autophagy

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

The purpose of this study was to investigate the protective effect of hydrogen-rich saline (HRS) against liver ischaemia-reperfusion combined resection injury. Eighteen miniature pigs were randomly divided into three groups: a sham operated group (sham group, laparoscopic liver ischaemia-reperfusion combined resection injury group (IRI group), and a hydrogen-rich saline intervention group (IRI + HRS group). Samples of hepatic tissue and …

Hydrogen protects against hepatic injury

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

Hydrogen-rich saline (HRS) has antioxidative, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic properties. The authors investigated the effects of hydrogen on hepatic ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) and laparoscopic hepatectomy in swine. Twenty-one healthy Bama miniature pigs were randomly divided into the sham group, ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) group, HRS-5 (5 mL/kg) group, and HRS-10 (10 mL/kg) group. HRS was injected through the portal vein 10 min before reperfusion and at …

Hydrogen ameliorates liver injury through PI3K-Akt pathway

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

This study explored the hepatoprotection of high concentrations of hydrogen (HCH) inhalation in a mouse hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury model and the potential mechanism. To explore the role of the PI3K-Akt pathway in the hepatoprotection of HCH, C57BL/6 mice were randomly divided into five groups: Sham, I/R, I/R+HCH, LY294002 (PI3K inhibitor)+I/R+HCH, and LY+I/R groups. Mice received inhalation of 66.7% hydrogen …

Hydrogen-rich saline improves non‑alcoholic fatty liver disease

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) comprises a range of liver diseases, between steatosis and non‑alcoholic steatohepatitis and liver cirrhosis, which are closely associated with diabetes mellitus. Previous studies have indicated that oxidative stress is a key factor in the development of NAFLD. Molecular hydrogen (H2) may ameliorate oxidative stress injuries by selectively neutralizing peroxynitrite and hydroxyl radicals. The present study …

Hydrogen-rich saline and postoperative cognitive dysfunction

In Animal studies, Liver, Nervous system by CHESS

This study aims to investigate the protective effects and underlying mechanisms of hydrogen-rich saline on the cognitive functions of elder mice with partial hepatectomy-induced postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD). Ninety-six old male Kunming mice were randomly divided into 4 groups (n = 24 each): control group (group C), hydrogen-rich saline group (group H), POCD group (group P), and POCD + hydrogen-rich saline group (group PH). …

Hydrogen-rich saline ameliorates hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of hydrogen-rich saline (HS) on hepatic ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. Forty rats were randomly allocated into five groups: one sham group (control group), one group treated with 20 min of ischemia and normal saline (NS; I/R1 + NS group), one group treated with 20 min of ischemia and HS (I/R1 + HS group), one group treated with …
