Function matters: visual stimulation protects the retina against ischemia

AoS. Function matters: visual stimulation protects the retina against ischemia.

Retinal ischemia is a condition involved in several prevalent retinal degenerative diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, which cause visual impairment and blindness. Current research focuses on the development of neuroprotective strategies against ischemic retinopathies, but

Treatment critical limb ischemia with intramuscular administration of mesenchymal stem cells

Treatment critical limb ischemia

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is a severe form of peripheral artery disease, and associated with high rate of morbidity and mortality. The current standard for treatment CLI is revascularization. However, in any time surgical or endovascular revascularization

The cardioprotective effects of (-)-Epicatechin are mediated through arginase activity inhibition in a murine model of ischemia/reperfusion

Cardiovascular diseases including acute myocardial infarction (AMI), are the leading cause of death worldwide. Current treatment for AMI caused by a coronary artery occlusion is the restoration of blood flow (i.e., reperfusion) by angioplasty (percutaneous coronary intervention)

Effect of the new hybrid 3,5-dipalmitoyl-nifedipine on the ischemia / reperfusion simulation

The myocardial ischemia process is a global health problem. Damage after myocardial ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. Hypertensive patients are most affected by I/R. This work investigated the acute

Antithrombotic therapy duration after coronary stenting: finding the sweet-spot with a novel clinical risk score

Coronary atherosclerosis is still the principal cause of morbidity and mortality in western countries, by inducing ischemia or infarction of the myocardium. Percutaneous treatment of atherosclerotic lesions is nowadays the most common form of treatment of such

Can Beautyberry treatment improve the success rate of lung transplantation?

Ischemia/reperfusion injury is a type of organ damage that occurs when blood supply returns to the organ after a period of ischemia and a direct consequence of oxidative stress. It significantly contributes to the risk of mortality
