Hydrogen-enriched water for mitochondrial and inflammatory myopathies

In Human studies, Muscle by CHESS

Molecular hydrogen has prominent effects on more than 30 animal models especially of oxidative stress-mediated diseases and inflammatory diseases. In addition, hydrogen effects on humans have been reported in diabetes mellitus type 2, hemodialysis, metabolic syndrome, radiotherapy for liver cancer, and brain stem infarction. Hydrogen effects are ascribed to specific radical-scavenging activities that eliminate hydroxyl radical and peroxynitrite, and also …

Hydrogen-rich water in patients with interstitial cystitis and painful bladder syndrome

In Human studies, Kidney by CHESS

The objective of this study was to investigate the efficacy of hydrogen-rich water for the treatment of patients with interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS). Authors conducted a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial of hydrogen-rich water in patients with IC/PBS. Inclusion criteria were stable symptoms of IC/PBS for ≥ 12 weeks after bladder hydrodistension, Interstitial Cystitis Symptom Index score of …

Adding molecular hydrogen to haemodialysis solutions ameliorated inflammatory reactions

In Human studies, Kidney by CHESS

Chronic inflammation in haemodialysis (HD) patients indicates a poor prognosis. However, therapeutic approaches are limited. Hydrogen gas (H(2)) ameliorates oxidative and inflammatory injuries to organs in animal models. We developed an HD system using a dialysis solution with high levels of dissolved H(2) and examined the clinical effects. Dialysis solution with H(2) (average of 48 ppb) was produced by mixing …

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 …
