Effects of Sub-Lethal High Pressure Homogenization Treatment on the Adhesion Mechanisms and Stress Response Genes in 08.

Front Microbiol 2021 28;12:651711. Epub 2021 May 28.

Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences, University of Bologna, Cesena, Italy.

Cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) and adhesion are very important phenotypical traits for probiotics that confer them a competitive advantage for the resilience in the human gastrointestinal tract. This study was aimed to understand the effects over time of a 50 MPa hyperbaric treatment on the surface properties of 08 including CSH, autoaggregation, and adhesion (mucin layer and Caco-2 cells). Moreover, a link between the hurdle applied and the expression of genes involved in the general stress response ( and ) and adhesion processes ( and ) was evaluated. Read More

Hyperbaric oxygen suppressed tumor progression through the improvement of tumor hypoxia and induction of tumor apoptosis in A549-cell-transferred lung cancer.

Sci Rep 2021 Jun 8;11(1):12033. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Department of Biochemistry, National Defense Medical Center, Taipei, Taiwan, ROC.

Tumor cells have long been recognized as a relative contraindication to hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) since HBOT might enhance progressive cancer growth. However, in an oxygen deficit condition, tumor cells are more progressive and can be metastatic. HBOT increasing in oxygen partial pressure may benefit tumor suppression. Read More

Breath-Hold Diving - The Physiology of Diving Deep and Returning.

Front Physiol 2021 21;12:639377. Epub 2021 May 21.

Center for Heart, Lung & Vascular Health, University of British Columbia Okanagan, Kelowna, BC, Canada.

Breath-hold diving involves highly integrative physiology and extreme responses to both exercise and asphyxia during progressive elevations in hydrostatic pressure. With astonishing depth records exceeding 100 m, and up to 214 m on a single breath, the human capacity for deep breath-hold diving continues to refute expectations. The physiological challenges and responses occurring during a deep dive highlight the coordinated interplay of oxygen conservation, exercise economy, and hyperbaric management. Read More

[What is the Best Therapeutic Strategy for Decompression Illness? First Aid Oxygen Inhalation and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy].

J UOEH 2021 ;43(2):243-254

Department of Environmental Medicine, Kurume University School of Medicine.

Decompression illness (DCI), a syndrome following inadequate reduction in environmental pressure, has two forms: decompression sickness and arterial gas embolism after pulmonary barotrauma. Recompression therapy using oxygen, a kind of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, has been considered the gold standard treatment for DCI, although there is no randomized controlled trial evidence for its use. We evaluated the effectiveness of recompression therapy in treating DCI by reviewing the reported therapeutic results of serious DCI, especially neurological disorders. Read More

The structure-function relationship of a signaling-competent, dimeric Reelin fragment.

Structure 2021 Jun 1. Epub 2021 Jun 1.

Child Health Institute of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, USA; Department of Neuroscience and Cell Biology, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, USA; School of Biological Sciences, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington 6012, New Zealand. Electronic address:

Reelin operates through canonical and non-canonical pathways that mediate several aspects of brain development and function. Reelin's dimeric central fragment (CF), generated through proteolytic cleavage, is required for the lipoprotein-receptor-dependent canonical pathway activation. Here, we analyze the signaling properties of a variety of Reelin fragments and measure the differential binding affinities of monomeric and dimeric CF fragments to lipoprotein receptors to investigate the mode of canonical signal activation.

The Effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Bone Healing Efficiency After Maxillary Sinus Lateral Augmentation Using Xenograft: An In Vivo Pilot Study on Histomorphometric Analysis.

Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2021 May-Jun;41(3):e81-e91

It was hypothesized that hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) could increase bone healing efficiency according to a protocol with a special window of healing time when maxillary sinus lateral augmentation is performed with only xenograft. The histomorphometric efficiency of HBO on the maxillary sinus lateral augmentation was examined by designing five different in vivo healing periods. Five patients receiving maxillary sinus lateral augmentation with xenograft each received a different treatment healing protocol: 6 weeks natural healing (control [Ctl]), 5 weeks with HBO (T1), 6 weeks with HBO (T2), 9 weeks with HBO (T3), and 13 months natural healing (TM).

GO-Y078, a Curcumin Analog, Induces Both Apoptotic Pathways in Human Osteosarcoma Cells via Activation of JNK and p38 Signaling.

Pharmaceuticals (Basel) 2021 May 24;14(6). Epub 2021 May 24.

Institute of Medicine, Chung Shan Medical University, Taichung 402, Taiwan.

Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone malignancy in teenagers and continues to confer a generally poor prognosis due to its highly metastatic potential. Poor solubility in water and instability of curcumin limits its bioavailability for use in the adjuvant situation to improve the prognosis and the long-term survival of patients with osteosarcoma. To further obtain information regarding the apoptosis induced by a new curcumin analog, GO-Y078, in human osteosarcoma cells, flow cytometric analysis, annexin V-FITC/PI apoptosis staining assay, human apoptosis array, and Western blotting were employed.
