When Dr. Travers and I isolated krypton and xenon from air, we had very little idea of the total amount of liquid air from which, by its evaporation, these gases had been obtained. And we were then more concerned with the isolation of the gases in a pure state than in the determination of the proportion in which they exist in the atmosphere. Our knowledge of the composition of the air, however, is not Complete until the total yield of krypton, xenon, neon, and helium has been determined. An… Expand

Experimental treatments for hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy.
Agents such as inhaled xenon, N-acetylcysteine, melatonin, erythropoietin and anticonvulsants, and the role of biomarkers to speed up clinical translation are discussed, in particular, the use of the cerebral magnetic resonance spectroscopy lactate/N- acetyl aspartate peak area ratios to provide early prognostic information.

The neuroprotective efficacy of xenon in preclinical models and its safety in clinical anesthesia set the stage for the launch of randomized clinical trials to determine whether these encouraging neuroProtective findings can be translated into clinical utility. Expand
