Attenuating experimental spinal cord injury by hyperbaric oxygen: stimulating production of vasculoendothelial and glial cell line-derived neurotrophic growth factors and interleukin-10.

Abstract: The present study was carried out to further examine the mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO(2)) on experimental spinal cord injury (SCI). Rats were divided into three major groups: (1) sham operation (laminectomy only);...

Lung metastatic load limitation with hyperbaric oxygen.

Abstract: Despite some theoretical concern about cancer-enhancing effects ofhyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) therapy, it is frequently administered to cancer patients. We evaluated the growth of murine breast cancer cells in the lung after hyperbaric oxygen treatment in an...
