Hydrogen-rich saline protects immunocytes from radiation-induced apoptosis

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

Radiation often causes depletion of immunocytes in tissues and blood, which results in immunosuppression. Molecular hydrogen (H2) has been shown in recent studies to have potential as a safe and effective radioprotective agent through scavenging free radicals. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that H2 could protect immunocytes from ionizing radiation (IR).┬áH2 was dissolved in physiological saline or …
