Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


Preadaptation of rats to altitude hypoxia results in reduced activation of lipid peroxidation during subsequent stress, inflammation, or both, as compared to hypoxiaunadapted animals, with the result that secondary changes in organs and tissues of adapted rats are much less pronounced and conditions are created for alleviating the acute inflammation and the stress reaction.
