The investigators hypothesize that EPO protects against apoptosis after acute ischemia in man and that it is detectable using the annexin-A5 model.
Does infusion of a single dose of Epoetin Alfa, a short-acting EPO, protect against apoptosis in man after acute ischemia?
A double blinded randomised cross-over study.
12 Healthy male volunteers, between 18 and 40 years old.
All 12 volunteers will receive a single dose of EPO and placebo in a randomized order. A six week wash-out period is obtained in order to avoid interference of both treatments.
Main study parameters/endpoints:
The percentage of difference between radioactivity (quantified as counts per pixel) of the experimental and control thenar muscle at one and four hours after reperfusion.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Basic Science

It is our goal to study the mechanism of ischemia-reperfusion injury. Our DIEP-operation is actually a clinical model of ischemia-reperfusion. Ischemia-reperfusion injury has never been di...
The application of tourniquet is indispensable for a bloodless surgical area in total knee arthroplasty surgery. The release of tourniquet produces reactive oxygen species which can cause ...
Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is a prominent cause of delayed graft function(DGF) after kidney transplantation. Reactive oxygen species play a crucial role in I/R injury. Edaravone is ...
This study is performed to determine whether a seven day treatment with dipyridamole (slow release, 200mg twice daily) can induce a protective effect against ischemia-reperfusion injury, a...
The investigators will examine whether administration of certain medications will decrease or prevent ischemia-reperfusion injury.
We investigated how resveratrol affects lipid oxidation during experimental renal ischemia-reperfusion injury in rats. We used 48 adult male rats assigned to five groups: group 1, control; group 2, re...
Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury can aggravate the dysfunction and structural damage of tissues and organs. This study aimed at investigating the pathogenesis of I/R injury.
Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is the major cause of neurological deficit following stroke. Our previous study showed neuroprotective effects of hispidulin against cerebral ischemia reperfusion inj...
Free jejunal flaps are among the most commonly used flaps for esophageal reconstruction. However, ischemia-reperfusion injury caused by warm ischemia seen during transfer limits their use. Iloprost, a...
To investigate the cardioprotective effects of hypothermic (25 °C) reperfusion on ischemia/reperfusion injury and the role of transient potential channel M8 (TRPM8) in this process.
Adverse functional, metabolic, or structural changes in ischemic tissues resulting from the restoration of blood flow to the tissue (REPERFUSION), including swelling; HEMORRHAGE; NECROSIS; and damage from FREE RADICALS. The most common instance is MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.
Generally, restoration of blood supply to heart tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. Reperfusion can be induced to treat ischemia. Methods include chemical dissolution of an occluding thrombus, administration of vasodilator drugs, angioplasty, catheterization, and artery bypass graft surgery. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION INJURY.
Restoration of blood supply to tissue which is ischemic due to decrease in normal blood supply. The decrease may result from any source including atherosclerotic obstruction, narrowing of the artery, or surgical clamping. It is primarily a procedure for treating infarction or other ischemia, by enabling viable ischemic tissue to recover, thus limiting further necrosis. However, it is thought that reperfusion can itself further damage the ischemic tissue, causing REPERFUSION INJURY.
Exposure of myocardial tissue to brief, repeated periods of vascular occlusion in order to render the myocardium resistant to the deleterious effects of ISCHEMIA or REPERFUSION. The period of pre-exposure and the number of times the tissue is exposed to ischemia and reperfusion vary, the average being 3 to 5 minutes.
Damage to the MYOCARDIUM resulting from MYOCARDIAL REPERFUSION (restoration of blood flow to ischemic areas of the HEART.) Reperfusion takes place when there is spontaneous thrombolysis, THROMBOLYTIC THERAPY, collateral flow from other coronary vascular beds, or reversal of vasospasm.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
