Pharmacological models and approaches for pathophysiological conditions associated with hypoxia and oxidative stress
Hypoxia is the failure of oxygenation at the tissue level,where the reduced oxygen delivered is not enough to satisfy tissue demands. Metabolic depression is the physiological adaptation associated with reduced oxygen ...

Ventilatory strategies against child with acute respiratory distress syndrome and severe hypoxemia
(Unidad de Congresos del Centro Médico Nacional, 2015)
In this review, we assemble the fundamental concepts of the use of mechanical ventilation (MV) in children with acute respiratory failure (ARDS) and refractory hypoxemia. We also discusses topics of protective ventilation ...
Ecological Photodynamic Therapy: New trend to disrupt the intricate networks within tumor ecosystem
(Elsevier Science, 2012-11)
As with natural ecosystems, species within the tumor microenvironment are connected by pairwise interactions (e.g. mutualism, predation) leading to a strong interdependence of different populations on each other. In this ...
Towards autotrophic tissue engineering: Photosynthetic gene therapy for regeneration
(Elsevier Ltd, 2016)
© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. The use of artificial tissues in regenerative medicine is limited due to hypoxia. As a strategy to overcome this drawback, we have shown that photosynthetic biomaterials can produce and provide oxygen ...
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy ameliorates TNBS-induced acute distal colitis in rats
(BioMed Central, 2015-04-16)
Abstract Background This study investigated the therapeutic effects of hyperbaric oxygen in experimental acute distal colitis focusing on its effect on the production of ...
