A gender dimorphic immune response has been observed after trauma and severe hemorrhage, a condition believed to be associated with tissue hypoxia. Although studies have shown that hypoxemia per se in males causes a systemic inflammatory response, it is unclear if the inflammatory response to hypoxemia exhibits gender dimorphic characteristics. To study this, male and female C3H/HeN mice in the proestrus state of the estrous cycle were subjected to hypoxemia (95% N(2)-5% O(2)) or sham hypoxemia… CONTINUE READING
