Department of Physiology, School of Medicine, College of Medicine & Health, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland; APC Microbiome Ireland, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland. Electronic address:

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are proposed as mediators of chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH)-induced respiratory plasticity. We sought to determine if NADPH oxidase 2 (NOX2)-derived ROS underpin CIH-induced maladaptive changes in respiratory control. Adult male mice (C57BL/6 J) were assigned to one of three groups: normoxic controls (sham); chronic intermittent hypoxia-exposed (CIH, 12 cycles/hour, 8 h/day for 14 days); and CIH + apocynin (NOX2 inhibitor, 2 mM) given in the drinking water throughout exposure to CIH.

Can Prophylactic High Flow of Humidified and Warmed Filtered Air Improve Survival from Bacterial Pneumonia and SARS-CoV-2 in Elderly Individuals? The Role of Surfactant Protein A.

Antioxidants (Basel) 2021 Apr 22;10(5). Epub 2021 Apr 22.

Center for Host Defense, Inflammation, and Lung Disease (CHILD) Research, Department of Pediatrics, The Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Hershey, PA 17033, USA.

In this opinion article, we discuss a serendipitous observation we made in a study investigating survival in aged mice after bacterial infection. This observation involved a non-invasive ventilation approach that led to variable and higher survival in male and female mice with different genetic backgrounds for the innate immune molecule, surfactant protein A (SP-A). We suggest that employing the best ventilatory modality, whether that be HFNC or another method, may augment the role of other factors such as SP-A genetics and sex in a personalized approach, and may ultimately improve the outcome.

Pulmonary hypertension is attenuated and ventilation-perfusion matching is maintained during chronic hypoxia in deer mice native to high altitude.

Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 2021 Jun 7;320(6):R800-R811. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Biology, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Hypoxia at high altitude can constrain metabolism and performance and can elicit physiological adjustments that are deleterious to health and fitness. Hypoxic pulmonary hypertension is a particularly serious and maladaptive response to chronic hypoxia, which results from vasoconstriction and pathological remodeling of pulmonary arteries, and can lead to pulmonary edema and right ventricle hypertrophy. We investigated whether deer mice () native to high altitude have attenuated this maladaptive response to chronic hypoxia and whether evolved changes or hypoxia-induced plasticity in pulmonary vasculature might impact ventilation-perfusion (V-Q) matching in chronic hypoxia.

Mice and Rats Display Different Ventilatory, Hematological, and Metabolic Features of Acclimatization to Hypoxia.

Front Physiol 2021 12;12:647822. Epub 2021 Mar 12.

Centre de Recherche de l'Institute Universitaire de Cardiologie et de Pneumologie de Québec, Université Laval, Québec, QC, Canada.

Phylogeographic studies showed that house mice () originated in the Himalayan region, while common rats ( and ) come from the lowlands of China and India. Accordingly, it has been proposed that its origins gave mice, but not rats, the ability to invade ecological niches at high altitudes (pre-adaptation). This proposal is strongly supported by the fact that house mice are distributed throughout the world, while common rats are practically absent above 2,500 m. Read More

Leptin receptor expression in the dorsomedial hypothalamus stimulates breathing during NREM sleep in db/db mice.

Sleep 2021 Jun;44(6)

Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Department of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Study Objectives: Obesity leads to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which is recurrent upper airway obstruction during sleep, and obesity hypoventilation syndrome (OHS), hypoventilation during sleep resulting in daytime hypercapnia. Impaired leptin signaling in the brain was implicated in both conditions, but mechanisms are unknown. We have previously shown that leptin stimulates breathing and treats OSA and OHS in leptin-deficient ob/ob mice and leptin-resistant diet-induced obese mice and that leptin's respiratory effects may occur in the dorsomedial hypothalamus (DMH).
