Endothelial activation following prolonged hypobaric hypoxia.

Prolonged exposure to low oxygen may induce adaptive changes which can be either beneficial or deleterious to cell survival. We examined the effect of prolonged moderate hypobaric hypoxia on CNS endothelial cell (EC) function. Exposure to hypoxia resulted in expression of EC activation markers, the cell surface adhesion proteins intracellular adhesion… CONTINUE READING
