Hydrogen (H2) is colorless, odorless, and the lightest of gas molecules. Studies in the past ten years have indicated that H2 is extremely important in regulating the homeostasis of the cardiovascular system and metabolic activity. Delivery of H2 by various strategies improves cardiometabolic diseases, including atherosclerosis, vascular injury, ischemic or hypertrophic ventricular remodeling, intermittent hypoxia- or heart transplantation-induced heart injury, obesity and diabetes in animal… Expand
Hydrogen: An Endogenous Regulator of Liver Homeostasis
TLDR
Liver has the highest concentration of H2 after supplement of exogenous H2 by various strategies in vivo and may play essential roles in maintaining liver homeostasis, while enhanced endogenous H2 production may improve hepatitis, hepatic ischemia and reperfusion injury, liver regeneration, and hepatic steatosis. Expand
A New Approach for the Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disorders. Molecular Hydrogen Significantly Reduces the Effects of Oxidative Stress
TLDR
The mechanistic data, coupled with the pre-clinical and clinical studies, suggest that H2 may be useful for ROS/inflammation-induced cardiotoxicity and other conditions. Expand
Current Progress in Molecular Hydrogen Medication: Protective and Therapeutic Uses of Hydrogen against Different Disease Scenarios
For centuries, molecular hydrogen (H2) was supposed to be inactive and useless in the cells of mammals. Scholars reversed this notion by representing that H2 reacts with extremely reactive oxygenExpand
Micro/Nanomaterials-Augmented Hydrogen Therapy.
TLDR
A concept of hydrogen nanomedicine to address the issues of hydrogen medicine by using functional micro/nanomaterials for augmented hydrogen therapy is proposed, which can open a new window for treatment of inflammation-related diseases. Expand
H2 Protects Against Lipopolysaccharide-Induced Cardiac Dysfunction via Blocking TLR4-Mediated Cytokines Expression
TLDR
Hydrogen therapy prevents LPS-induced cardiac dysfunction in part via downregulation of TLR4-mediated pro-inflammatory cytokines expression and results in cardioprotection during septic cardiomyopathy. Expand
Hepatocardiac or Cardiohepatic Interaction: From Traditional Chinese Medicine to Western Medicine
TLDR
To investigate the organ interactions between the liver and heart (the heart and liver) will help to broaden and deepen the understanding of the pathogenesis of both liver andheart diseases, thus improving the strategies of prevention and treatment in the future. Expand
Molecular hydrogen: A potential radioprotective agent.
TLDR
It is concluded that hydrogen has good potential in radio-protection, with evidence that warrants greater research efforts in this field, and possible mechanisms for hydrogen's radioprotective properties and effective delivery methods are analyzed. Expand
The preventive and therapeutic effects of molecular hydrogen in ocular diseases and injuries where oxidative stress is involved
TLDR
Results show that the suppression of oxidative stress by H2 treatment leads to the prevention or improvement of ocular diseases, and in severe degenerative diseases, H2 slows disease progression. Expand
Hydrogen gas alleviates acute alcohol-induced liver injury by inhibiting JNK activation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that treatment with exogenous H2 by intraperitoneal injection may alleviate acute alcohol-induced liver injury by inhibiting hepatic JNK activation, which may represent a novel therapeutic strategy for ALD. Expand
Antitumor Activity of Protons and Molecular Hydrogen: Underlying Mechanisms
TLDR
Protons (H+) and molecular hydrogen (H2) in the cell are critical in a wide variety of processes and H2 and different types of H2 donors may represent a novel therapeutic strategy in cancer treatment. Expand

Are the effects of α‐glucosidase inhibitors on cardiovascular events related to elevated levels of hydrogen gas in the gastrointestinal tract?
TLDR
It is proposed that the cardiovascular benefits of α‐glucosidase inhibitors are partly attributable to their ability to neutralise oxidative stress via increased production of H2 in the gastrointestinal tract, and that when inhaled or taken orally as H2‐dissolved water it ameliorates ischaemia–reperfusion injury and atherosclerosis development.
