Effect of Drinking Oxygenated Water Assessed by in vivo MRI Relaxometry

Oxygen uptake through the gastrointestinal tract after oral administration of oxygenated water in humans is not well studied and is debated in the literature. Due to the paramagnetic properties of oxygen and deoxyhemoglobin, MRI as a technique might be able to detect changes in relaxometry values caused by increased oxygen levels in the blood. This study assess whether oxygen dissolved in water is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and transported into the bloodstream after oral administration.

Precision of T1-relaxation time measurements in the hepatic portal vein: influence of measurement technique and sequence parameters

To investigate the effects of a range of parameter settings on T1 measurement stability in the portal vein using the T1-mapping sequences Look-Locker (LL) and Modified Look-Locker inversion recovery (MOLLI).

Development of a novel in situ gelling skin dressing

Wound healing requires appropriate oxygen and pH levels. Oxygen therapy and pH‐modulating treatments have shown positive effects on wound healing. Thus, a dressing, which combines high levels of dissolved oxygen (DO) with the pH of intact skin, may improve wound healing. Our aims were to (1) formulate an in situ gelling dressing with high levels of DO and with the pH level of intact skin, (2) evaluate physical and chemical properties of the dressing, and (3) elucidate basic effects of elevated levels of DO on human skin cells in vitro.
