Interruptions in blood supply to organs causes ischemia. Ischemic tissue can be salvaged when blood flow is restored within a certain time frame, but prolonged organ ischemia eventually results in cell death. Kirsten Smit investigates whether the noble gas helium can be used to protect human organs through preconditioning. A second aim is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the protection induced by different forms of helium conditioning.
