Latest Hypoxia Stories
A study published online in Nature Genetics provides important insights into understanding mammal variance and adaptation at high altitude.
Tossing and turning all night? Waking up yawning and feeling like a zombie? 18 million Americans who suffer from sleep apnea can relate. Now, two new studies are attempting to prove the condition leaving you weary could also cause cancer.
While previous studies have associated SDB with increased risks of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, depression, and early death, this is the first human study to link apnea with higher rate of cancer mortality.
Intermittent exercise with and without low oxygen concentrations (or hypoxia) can improve insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetics.
A new family of proteins which regulate the human body’s ‘hypoxic response’ to low levels of oxygen has been discovered by scientists at Barts Cancer Institute at Queen Mary, University of London and The University of Nottingham.
Treating brain tumors with whole brain radiation therapy can damage healthy brain tissue, but a new study in mice reveals that limiting the oxygen supply, or hypoxia, can alleviate some of the cognitive impairment caused by the radiation.
Mitochondria are often called cellular "powerhouses" because they convert nutrients into energy.
Research may have implications for heart disease, stroke and cancer.
The latest results from an expedition to Mount Everest that looked at the body's response to low oxygen levels suggest that drugs or procedures that promote the body's production of a chemical compound called nitric oxide (NO) could improve the recovery of critically ill patients in intensive care.
