Ischaemic postconditioning protects against reperfusion injury via the SAFE pathway.
AIMS Ischaemic postconditioning (IPostC) is a powerful protective phenomenon that activates prosurvival intrinsic signalling cascades to limit reperfusion injury. We propose that IPostC confers itsExpand

Pharmacological Preconditioning With Tumor Necrosis Factor-α Activates Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription-3 at Reperfusion Without Involving Classic Prosurvival Kinases (Akt and
Background— We previously reported that tumor necrosis-factor-α (TNF-α) can mimic classic ischemic preconditioning (IPC) in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Because TNF-α activates the signalExpand
