Title

Pulmonary antioxidant concentrations and oxidative damage in ventilated premature babies

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Archives of Disease in Childhood - Fetal and Neonatal Edition
Month/year of publication: September 2004
Pagination: F412-416
Volume: 89 (5)
ISSN: 1359-2998
DOI: 10.1136/adc.2002.016717 ?
Research group: A - Rehabilitation
Co-authors: Godeck S, Holley J E, Quinn M E
Other relevant details: Showed that the levels of antioxidants in the fluid lining the lung, and the incidence of lipid peroxidation (oxidative damage) were poor predictors of the development of chronic lung disease of prematurity [CLD]. In contrast, gestational age, endotracheal infection and septicaemia were good predictors of CLD

Title

Blood transfusion and pulmonary lipid peroxidation in ventilated premature babies

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Pediatric Pulmonology
Month/year of publication: March 2005
Pagination: 257-261
Volume: 39 (3)
ISSN: 8755-6863
DOI: 10.1002/ppul.20190 ?
Research group: A - Rehabilitation
Co-authors: Godeck S, Holley J E
Other relevant details: Showed that pulmonary oxidative damage increased after the receipt of blood transfusions in ventilated premature babies. Babies receiving blood transfusions showed a greater incidence of pulmonary oxidative stress and poor clinical outcome in terms of chronic lung disease of prematurity

Title

Is there a causal relationship between the receipt of blood transfusions and the development of chronic lung disease of prematurity?

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Medical Hypotheses
Month/year of publication: April 2005
Pagination: 355-364
Volume: 66
ISSN: 03069877
DOI: 10.1016/j.mehy.2005.04.06 ?
Research group: A - Rehabilitation
Other relevant details: Examined the arguments for and against a causal relationship between the receipt of blood transfusion and the development of chronic lung disease of prematurity [CLD]. The paper outlined the probable biochemical mechanisms by which blood transfusion could cause oxidative stress, infection and CLD, and proposed ways of studying them.

Title

Effect of creatine supplementation and sleep deprivation with mild exercise, on cognitive and psychomotor performance, mood state and plasma concentrations of catecholamines and cortisol

Output type: Journal article
Journal title: Psychopharmacology
Month/year of publication: March 2006
Pagination: 93-103
Volume: 185 (1)
ISSN: 0033-3158
DOI: 10.1007/s00213-005-0269-z ?
Research group: A - Rehabilitation
Co-authors: Harris R C, McMorris T , Swain J
Number of additional co-authors: 5
Other relevant details: Following 24 hour sleep deprivation, creatine supplementation had a positive effect on mood state and tasks that place a heavy stress on the prefrontal cortex. Sleep deprivation increased plasma concentrations of noradrenaline and dopamine and decreased cortisol concentration.
