Heedoo Lee, Duo Zhang, Ziwen Zhu, Charles S Dela Cruz, Yang Jin
Intercellular communications between lung epithelial cells and alveolar macrophages play an essential role in host defense against acute lung injury. Hyperoxia-induced oxidative stress is an established model to mimic human lung injury. We show that after hyperoxia-associated oxidative stress, a large amount of extracellular vesicles (EVs) are detectable in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) and culture medium of lung epithelial cells. Microvesicles (MVs), but not exosomes (Exos) or apoptotic bodies (Abs), are the main type of EVs found in the early stages after hyperoxia...

INTRODUCTION: Hyperoxia increases total peripheral resistance by acting locally but also inhibits the activity of carotid body chemoreceptors. We studied the effect of hyperoxia on central pressure in normotensive subjects. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Medical air followed by 100% oxygen was provided to 19 subjects (12/7 female/male, age 28.2 ±1.1 years) for 15 min through a non-rebreather mask. Central blood pressure was then measured using applanation tonometry. RESULTS: After the first 2 min of hyperoxia, heart rate decreased significantly (65 ±2...

Preterm neonates are prematurely exposed to high oxygen levels at birth which may adversely impact ongoing renal development. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of neonatal hyperoxia exposure on renal function and morphology with aging. Sprague Dawley rat pups were raised in a hyperoxic environment (80% oxygen) from P3 to P10 during ongoing postnatal nephrogenesis. Control litters were kept in room air (n = 6-8 litters/group; one male, one female/litter/age). Kidney function (urine and plasma creatinine, sodium, and protein) and morphology (renal corpuscle size, glomerulosclerosis, fibrosis, and glomerular crescents) were assessed at 1, 5, and 11 months of age...

Hyperoxia is common practice in the acute management of circulatory shock, and observational studies report that it is present in more than 50 % of mechanically ventilated patients during the first 24 h after intensive care unit (ICU) admission. On the other hand, "oxygen toxicity" due to the increased formation of reactive oxygen species limits its use due to serious deleterious side effects. However, formation of reactive oxygen species to boost bacterial killing is one of the body's anti-microbial auto-defense mechanisms and, hence, O2 has been referred to as an antibiotic...

The superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticle ferumoxytol is increasingly used as intravascular contrast agent in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This study details the impact of ferumoxytol on regulation of renal hemodynamics and oxygenation. In 10 anesthetized rats, a single intravenous injection of isotonic saline (used as volume control) was followed by three consecutive injections of ferumoxytol to achieve cumulative doses of 6, 10, and 41 mg Fe/kg body mass. Arterial blood pressure, renal blood flow, renal cortical and medullary perfusion and oxygen tension were continuously measured...

BACKGROUND: Many factors contribute to the development of BPD basically by increasing inflammation in preterm lungs. However, premature neonates have insufficient anti-inflammatory capacity. We aimed to evaluate the effect of etanercept, an anti-TNF agent, on BPD development in newborn rat model with hyperoxia-induced lung injury. METHODS: Thirty-two newborn rats were divided into 3 groups as control group (Group 1, n = 11), hyperoxia + placebo group (Group 2, n = 10), and hyperoxia + etanercept group (Group 3, n = 11)...

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is the most common type of chronic lung disease in infancy, for which no effective therapy is currently available. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of treatment with bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) in combination with recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) on BPD‑induced mouse lung injury, and discuss the underlying mechanism. The BPD model was established by the exposure of neonatal mice to continuous high oxygen exposure for 14 days, following which 1x106 BMSCs and 5,000 U/kg rHuEPO were injected into the mice 1 h prior to and 7 days following exposure to hyperoxia...

Animal studies have demonstrated that neonatal hyperoxia injures the distal small intestine. This study aimed to determine the effects of neonatal hyperoxia exposure on the intestinal morphology and intestinal barrier integrity in newborn rats. Sprague-Dawley rat pups were exposed to either ambient air or hyperoxia. The ambient air and normobaric hyperoxia groups were maintained in room air and 85% O2 for 2weeks, respectively. The rats were euthanized on Postnatal Day 14, and the terminal ileum was collected for histological analyses and oxidative stress measurements...

Oxygen toxicity and antioxidant deficiencies contribute to the development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Aurothioglucose (ATG) and auranofin potently inhibit thioredoxin reductase-1 (TrxR1), and TrxR1 disruption activates nuclear factor E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2), a regulator of endogenous antioxidant responses. We have shown previously that ATG safely and effectively prevents lung injury in adult murine models, likely via Nrf2-dependent mechanisms. The current studies tested the hypothesis that ATG would attenuate hyperoxia-induced lung developmental deficits in newborn mice...

AIM: Premature infants are often exposed to hyperoxia to maintain adequate oxygenation, which may lead to the development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Sex-specific differences exist in the development and severity of BPD. Only a few studies have examined the mechanisms underlying these sex-related differences. The aim of the present study is to examine the sex-related long-term effects of neonatal hyperoxia on the lungs of adult mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Newborn mice were exposed to 95% oxygen (hyperoxia) for 96 hours and were allowed to recover in room air to adulthood (8 weeks of age)...

KEY POINTS: Arterial PCO2 is kept constant via breathing adjustments elicited, at least partly, by central chemoreceptors (CCRs) and the carotid bodies (CBs). The CBs may be active in a normal oxygen environment because their removal reduces breathing. Thereafter, breathing slowly returns to normal. In the present study, we investigated whether an increase in the activity of CCRs accounts for this return. One week after CB excision, the hypoxic ventilatory reflex was greatly reduced as expected, whereas ventilation and blood gases at rest under normoxia were normal...

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the most common cause of stroke in childhood and results primarily from a mismatch of cerebral oxygen supply and demand rather than arterial obstruction. However, resting cerebral blood flow (CBF) has not been examined in the general African American population, in whom obesity, hypertension, cerebrovascular disease, and diminished cerebrovascular reserve capacity are common. To better understand the underlying physiological substrate upon which SCD is superimposed, we measured CBF in 32 young (age 28 ± 10 yr), asymptomatic African American subjects with and without sickle cell trait (n= 14)...

Several studies have shown a pathological oxygenation (hypoxia/hyperoxia) on the adipose tissue in obese subjects. Additionally, the excess of body weight is often accompanied by a state of chronic low-degree inflammation. The inflammation phenomenon is a complex biological response mounted by tissues to combat injurious stimuli in order to maintain cell homeostasis. Furthermore, it is believed that the abnormal oxygen partial pressure occurring in adipose tissue is involved in triggering inflammatory processes...

Despite decades of research, the pathogenesis of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) remains poorly understood, thus impeding the development of effective treatment. Diffuse alveolar damage (DAD) and lung epithelial cell death are prominent features of ARDS. Lung epithelial cells are the first line of defense after inhaled stimuli, such as in the case of hyperoxia. We hypothesized that lung epithelial cells release 'messenger' or signaling molecules to adjacent or distant macrophages, thereby initiating or propagating inflammatory responses after noxious insult...

Complement anaphylatoxins have been investigated extensively; however, the role of complement anaphylatoxin C4a in hyperoxic lung injury has yet to be investigated. To the best of our knowledge, the present study is the first to demonstrate the role of C4a in hyperoxic lung injury in vitro and in vivo. BALB/c mice were ventilated with 100% oxygen with or without C4a treatment for 36 h. The body weight and the relative lung weight of the mice were determined, along with any morphological changes in the lung...

BACKGROUND: Preterm newborns that receive oxygen therapy often develop bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), which is abnormal lung development characterized by impaired alveologenesis. Oxygen-mediated injury is thought to disrupt normal lung growth and development. However, the mechanism of hyperoxia-induced BPD has not been extensively investigated. We established a neonatal mouse model to investigate the effects of normobaric hyperoxia on retinoid metabolism and retinoid receptor expression...

Here, we evaluated the influence of breathing oxygen at different partial pressures during recovery from exercise on performance at sea-level and a simulated altitude of 1800 m, as reflected in activation of different upper body muscles, and oxygenation of the m. triceps brachii. Ten well-trained, male endurance athletes (25.3±4.1 yrs; 179.2±4.5 cm; 74.2±3.4 kg) performed four test trials, each involving three 3-min sessions on a double-poling ergometer with 3-min intervals of recovery. One trial was conducted entirely under normoxic (No) and another under hypoxic conditions (Ho; FiO2 = 0...

Chronic exposure to sustained hyperoxia alters the development of the respiratory control system, but the respiratory effects of chronic intermittent hyperoxia have rarely been investigated. We exposed newborn rats to short, repeated bouts of 30% O2 or 60% O2 (5 bouts h(-1)) for 4-15 days and then assessed their hypoxic ventilatory response (HVR; 10 min at 12% O2) by plethysmography. The HVR tended to be enhanced by intermittent hyperoxia at P4 (early phase of the HVR), but it was significantly reduced at P14-15 (primarily late phase of the HVR) compared to age-matched controls; the HVR recovered when individuals were returned to room air and re-studied as adults...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of γ-secretase inhibitor (N-[N-(3,5-difluorophenacetyl)-l -alanyl]-S-phenylglycine t-butyl ester, DAPT) on hyperoxia-induced brain white matter injury in mice. MWTHODS: Three-day-old C57BL/10J mouse pups were divided into air control (C) group, control+DAPT (10 mg/kg, injected intraperitoneally) group, hyperoxia group (exposed to 80% oxygen for 48 h), and hyperoxia+DAPT group. The brain and body weights of the mice were measured at postnatal days 3, 5, 12, and 28...

The carotid bodies (CBs) are peripheral chemoreceptors that respond to hypoxia increasing minute ventilation and activating the sympathetic nervous system. Besides its role in ventilation we recently described that CB regulate peripheral insulin sensitivity. Knowing that the CB is functionally blocked by hyperoxia and that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) improves fasting blood glucose in diabetes patients, we have investigated the effect of HBOT on glucose tolerance in type 2 diabetes patients. Volunteers with indication for HBOT were recruited at the Subaquatic and Hyperbaric Medicine Center of Portuguese Navy and divided into two groups: type 2 diabetes patients and controls...
