Long-Lasting Hypoxic Preservation of Porcine Kidney Cells
In the field of transplantation medicine one of the determining factors for the outcome of the transplanted organ is the cellular deterioration due to hypoxia and reoxygenation and the protection against it. Frequently the hypoxic storage of the removed organ limits the possibility of successful transplantation. The hypoxic cell damage due to insufficient organ preservation is a major cause for the loss or the dysfunction of transplanted organs like hearts and kidneys2, 5, 6, 15, 17.
