BACKGROUND: Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is an important stress-regulating mediator of acute ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury and ischemic conditioning. The present study aimed to investigate whether MIF is involved in the effects of remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) in a rat model of orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). METHODS: OLTs were performed in male Lewis rats (245-340 g). Recipients were allocated in a randomized fashion into three experimental groups: remote preconditioning-RIPC, remote postconditioning-RIPOST, control...

NEW FINDINGS: What is the topic of this review? Paradoxically, ischemic and hypoxic conditioning paradigms protect vital organs from ischemic and hypoxic injury. In this Symposium Report, we focus on remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) and hypoxic preconditioning as novel therapeutic approaches for cardiac- and neuro-protection. What advances does it highlight? Growing interest in ischemic and hypoxic preconditioning has facilitated improved understanding of associated mechanisms and signaling pathways, and identified potential pitfalls with application of these therapies to clinical trials...

Timely reperfusion is still the most effective approach to limit infarct size in man. Despite advances in care and reduction in door-to-balloon times, nearly 25% of pa-tients develop heart failure post-MI, with its attendant morbidity and mortality. We pre-viously showed that cardioprotection results from a skin incision through the umbilicus in a murine model of myocardial infarction. In this study, we show that an electrical stimulus (ES) or topical capsaicin applied to the skin in the same region induces signif-icantly reduced infarct size in a murine model...

Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. Platelets, as the main regulators of hemostasis, are major players in acute myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI). Additionally, platelets are modified by endogenous cardioprotective strategies such as ischemic preconditioning, postconditioning, and remote ischemic conditioning. In this article, we provide an overview of the functionional role of platelets in acute myocardial IRI, and highlight their potential as targets for cardioprotection to improve health outcomes in patients with IHD...

BACKGROUND: Renal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is a major cause of acute kidney injury (AKI), which is associated with high morbidity and mortality. AKI is a serious and costly medical condition. Effective therapy for AKI is an unmet clinical need, and molecular mechanisms underlying the interactions between an injured kidney and distant organs remain unclear. Therefore, novel therapeutic strategies should be developed. METHODS: We directed the differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells into endothelial progenitor cells (iEPCs), which were then applied for treating mouse AKI...

The present study assessed whether tefillin use (tight, nonocclusive, wrapping of the arm) elicits a remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC)-like effect in subjects with both acute and chronic use. RIPC, created by short bursts of ischemia-reperfusion, has not been successfully taken to the bedside. Several large population studies have found that Orthodox Jewish men (who wear tefillin almost daily) have decreased cardiovascular mortality compared with non-Orthodox counterparts. We hypothesized that tefillin use is a relevant component in triggering a preconditioning effect...

BACKGROUND: Testicular torsion is a surgical emergency mainly affecting adolescent boys, with a relatively high rate of missed torsion and testicular loss secondary to delay in prompt diagnosis and surgical intervention. With ischemic reperfusion injury as its underlying culprit, testicular torsion may respond favorably to remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) where a non-privileged site (e.g. limb) is concurrently rendered ischemic to divert the cascade of reperfusion injury from the privileged organ (e...

BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of renal ischemic reperfusion injury (IRI) involves both inflammatory processes and oxidative stress in the kidney. This study determined whether remote ischemic per-conditioning (RIPerC) is mediated by toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) signaling pathway in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Renal I/R injury was induced by occluding renal arteries for 45 min followed by 24 h reperfusion. RIPerC included four cycles of 2 minutes ischemia of left femoral artery followed by 3 minutes reperfusion performed at the start of renal ischemia...

Intracranial atherosclerosis (ICAS) is a progressive pathological process that causes progressive stenosis and cerebral hypoperfusion and is a major cause of stroke occurrence and recurrence around the world. Multiple factors contribute to the development of ICAS. Angiography imaging techniques can improve the diagnosis of and the selection of appropriate treatment regimens for ICAS. Neither aggressive medication nor endovascular interventions can eradicate stroke recurrence in patients with ICAS. Non-pharmacological therapies such as remote ischemic conditioning and hypothermia are emerging...

AIMS: Remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) protects against organ ischemia/reperfusion injury in experimental and clinical settings. We have demonstrated that RIC prevents liver and lung inflammation/injury following hemorrhagic shock/resuscitation (S/R). In the current study, we used a murine model of S/R to investigate the role of Nrf2 in mediating hepatoprotection. RESULTS: The combination of RIC with S/R caused a synergistic rise in Nrf2 and its translocation to the nucleus in the liver...

Background Remote ischemic preconditioning ( RIPC ) by repeated brief cycles of limb ischemia/reperfusion attenuates myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury. We aimed to identify a functional parameter reflecting the RIPC -induced protection in human. Therefore, we measured mitochondrial function in right atrial tissue and contractile function of isolated right atrial trabeculae before and during hypoxia/reoxygenation from patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting with RIPC or placebo, respectively...

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and the heart failure (HF) that often results are among the leading causes of death and disability in the world. As such, novel strategies are required to protect the heart against the detrimental effects of acute ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI), in order to reduce myocardial infarct (MI) size and prevent the onset of HF. The endogenous cardioprotective strategy of remote ischemic conditioning (RIC), in which cycles of brief ischemia and reperfusion are applied to a tissue or organ away from the heart, has been reported in experimental studies to reduce MI size in animal models of acute IRI...

Higher levels of nonprotein amino acid homocysteine (Hcy), that is, hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) (~5% of general population) has been associated with severe vasculopathies in different organs; however, precise molecular mechanism(s) as to how HHcy plays havoc with body's vascular networks are largely unknown. Interventional modalities have not proven beneficial to counter multifactorial HHcy's effects on the vascular system. An ancient Indian form of exercise called 'yoga' causes transient ischemia as a result of various body postures however the cellular mechanisms are not clear...

Intracranial and extracranial arterial stenosis, the primary cause of chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH), is a critical reason for the pathogenesis of vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease characterized by cognitive impairments. Our previous study demonstrated that limb remote ischemic conditioning (LRIC) improved cerebral perfusion in intracranial arterial stenosis patients. The current study aimed to test whether LRIC promotes angiogenesis and increases phosphorylated endothelial nitric oxide synthase (p-eNOS) activity in CCH rat model...
