Drugs and Biologics

Drugs and Important Biological Agents (IBA) related to Anoxia:

07/01/2014 - "Most elk became hypoxemic regardless of BAM dosage, but hypoxemia tended to be most severe in the high-BAM group; regardless of BAM dosage, oxygen supplementation improved the percentage of oxygen saturation and stabilized the vital rates. "
01/01/2013 - "After cold acclimation, susceptibility to hypoxia was not significantly different between the groups, while HCVR significantly increased in Groups 1 and 3, HVR significantly increased in Group 3 and HCVR, HVR did not change in Group 2. Short-term cold exposures caused an increase in functional reserves and improved oxygen supply of tissues in Group 1. Cold exposure hypoxia has caused energy loss in Group 3. Group 2 showed the most appropriate energy conservation reaction mode to cold exposures. "
11/01/2009 - "We found that (1) in contrast to oxygen partial pressure in blood (P(a)O(2)), the baseline value of P(t)O(2) in summer euthermic AGS is significantly higher than in rats; (2) both P(t)O(2) and P(a)O(2) are dramatically reduced by inspired 8% O(2) in AGS and rats, but AGS have a greater capacity in P(t)O(2) to cope with environmental hypoxia; (3) metabolic rate before, during, and after hypoxic exposure is consistently lower in AGS than in rats; (4) the respiratory responding patterns to hypoxia in the two species differ in that f(R) decreases in AGS but increases in rats. "
09/13/2004 - "Acute hypoxia reduced the median oxygen partial pressure (pO(2)) dramatically (1 vs 10 mmHg in controls), whereas in chronically hypoxic tumours the pO(2) was significantly improved (median pO(2)=4 mmHg), however not reaching the control level. "
07/04/1977 - "Portacaval transposition and end-to-side shunt led to a striking oxygen deficit of the liver tissue with no incidence of compensation by the hepatic artery; Oxygen supply was improved considerably by a side-to-side shunt and tissue hypoxia could be prevented by a mesenterico-caval shunt and splenocaval shunt.
