Adrenocortical suppression in highland chick embryos is restored during incubation at sea level
(High Altitude Medicine & Biology, 2011)
Abstract Salinas, Carlo E., Mercedes Villena, Carlos E. Blanco, and Dino A. Giusssani. Adrenocortical suppression in highland chick embryos is restored during incubation at sea level. High Alt. Med. Biol. 12:79–87, ...
Acute hypoxia-reoxygenation and vascular oxygen sensing in the chicken embryo
(Physiological Reports, 2017)
Abstract Fetal/perinatal hypoxia is one of the most common causes of perinatal morbidity and mortality and is frequently accompannied by vascular dysfunction. However, the mechanisms involved have not been fully delineated. ...
Graduated effects of high-altitude hypoxia and highland ancestry on birth size
(International Pediatric Research, 2013-10-02)
Background: We present a cohort of ca. 25,000 birth records from Bolivia of men and women who are currently adults. We used this cohort to test the hypothesis that high altitude reduces birth weight and that highland ...
High-altitude hypoxia and echocardiographic indices of pulmonary hypertension in male and female chickens at adulthood
(Circulation Journal, 2014-06)
Background: By combining the chick embryo model with incubation at high altitude (HA), the effects of chronic hypoxia on fetal growth, fetal cardiac and aortic wall remodeling and systemic arterial blood pressure at adulthood ...
