OBJECTIVE To determine that 1) an age-dependent loss of inducible autophagy underlies the failure to recover from AKI in older, adult animals during endotoxemia, and 2) pharmacologic induction of autophagy, even after established endotoxemia, is of therapeutic utility in facilitating renal recovery in aged mice. DESIGN Murine model of endotoxemia and(More)
Few studies have characterized how pressure in the anterior chamber (AC) of the eye is transmitted via the vitreous to the vitreous-ganglion cell interface. We are aware of only one study that simultaneously measured the pressures in the AC and vitreous humor; and of only one study that simultaneously measured the pressures in the AC and the suprachoroidal(More)
INTRODUCTION Tissue reperfusion following hemorrhagic shock may paradoxically cause tissue injury and organ dysfunction by mitochondrial free radical expression. Both nitrite and carbon monoxide (CO) may protect from this reperfusion injury by limiting mitochondrial free radial production. We explored the effects of very small doses of inhaled nitrite and(More)
AIMS Currently, there is no effective resuscitative adjunct to fluid and blood products to limit tissue injury for traumatic hemorrhagic shock. The objective of this study was to investigate the role of inhaled carbon monoxide (CO) to limit inflammation and tissue injury, and specifically mitochondrial damage, in experimental models of hemorrhage and(More)
