Suppressive Effect of ERW on Lipid Peroxidation and Plasma Triglyceride Level

Year Published: 2010

Electrolyzed reduced water (ERW) containing hydrogen molecules and Pt nanoparticles is expected as a new antioxidant. Thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) assay revealed that ERW had an inhibitory effect on the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins (LDL). In addition, ERW significantly suppressed LDL oxidation in the medium cultured J.774.A1 macrophage like cells. ERW inhibited Cu2+ ...

Hydrogen is neuroprotective and preserves cerebrovascular reactivity in asphyxiated newborn pigs

Year Published: 2010

Hydrogen (H2) has been reported to neutralize toxic reactive oxygen species. Oxidative stress is an important mechanism of neuronal damage after perinatal asphyxia. We examined whether 2.1% H2-supplemented room air (H2-RA) ventilation would preserve cerebrovascular reactivity (CR) and brain morphology after asphyxia/reventilation (A/R) in newborn pigs. Anesthetized, ventilated piglets were ...

Hydrogen inhalation ameliorates ventilator-induced lung injury

Year Published: 2010

Mechanical ventilation (MV) can provoke oxidative stress and an inflammatory response, and subsequently cause ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI), a major cause of mortality and morbidity of patients in the intensive care unit. Inhaled hydrogen can act as an antioxidant and may be useful as a novel therapeutic gas. We hypothesized that, owing to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, ...
