Perinatal asphyxia constitutes a prototype of obstetric complications occurring when pulmonary oxygenation is delayed or interrupted. The primary insult relates to the duration of the period lacking oxygenation, leading to death if not re-established. Re-oxygenation leads to a secondary insult, related to a cascade of biochemical events required for(More)
Oxygen interruption leads to death when re-oxygenation is not promptly re-established. Re-oxygenation triggers a cascade of biochemical events for restoring function at the cost of improper homeostasis. The effects observed long after perinatal asphyxia (PA) have been explained by over-expression of sentinel proteins, such as poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1(More)
