    • Effects of antioxidant vitamins on newborn and placental traits in gestations at high altitude: comparative study in high and low altitude native sheep 

      Parraguez Gamboa, Víctor; Atlagich, Miljenko; Araneda, Oscar; García, Carlos; Muñoz, Andrés; Reyes Solovera, Mónica de los; Urquieta, Bessie (CSIRO PUBLISHING, 2011)
      The present study evaluated the hypothesis that the effects of hypoxia on sheep pregnancies at high altitude (HA) are mediated by oxidative stress and that antioxidant vitamins may prevent these effects. Both HA native and ...
    • Isolation of Viable Porcine Islets by Selective Osmotic Shock Without Enzymatic Digestion 

      Atwater Ransom, Illani; Guajardo, M.; Caviedes Fernández, Pablo; Jeffs, S.; Parrau, D.; Valencia, M.; Romero, C.; Arriagada Abarzúa, Christian; Caamaño, Edgardo; Salas, A.; Olguín, F.; Atlagich, Miljenko; Maas, R.; Mears, David; Rojas, Eduardo (ELSEVIER, 2010)
      Islet transplantation is a potential cure for type 1 diabetes, but clinical results have been disappointing. Currently, islet isolation is by enzymatic digestion of the pancreas which has significant pitfalls: warm ...
    • Ovine placenta at high altitudes: Comparison of animals with different times of adaptation to hypoxic environment 

      Parraguez Gamboa, Víctor; Atlagich, Miljenko; Díaz, Rodrigo; Cepeda, Raquel; González, Carlos; Reyes Solovera, Mónica de los; Bruzzone Valdés, María Eugenia; Behn Thiele, Claus; Raggi Saini, Luis (ELSEVIER, 2006-09)
      Fetal growth and newborn weight from ovine gestations at high altitudes (HA) are greater in ewes that live at HA for several generations than in those native to low altitudes (LA) exposed to HA only during pregnancy. Because ...
    • VEGF overexpression in the astroglial cells of rat brainstem following ozone exposure 

      Araneda, Silvia; Commin, Loris; Atlagich, Miljenko; Kitahama, Kunio; Pequignot, Jean-Marc; Parraguez Gamboa, Víctor; Dalmaz, Yvette (ELSEVIER, 2008-11)
      Ozone, a major photochemical pollutant, produces rapid damages in the pulmonary airway tract and in the central nervous system. This study focused on the neural mechanisms underlying the adaptive responses to an acute ozone ...
