Recently, ischemic postconditioning has been identified as a protective intervention against ischemia-reperfusion injury. In animal studies, the signalling pathway of this (impressive) protective phenomenon is very similar to ischemic preconditioning. It opens a new avenue of post-reperfusion interventions with drugs that have been shown to mimic ischemic preconditioning. Before we can study this phenomenon in our forearm ischemia-reperfusion model, we need additional validating experiments. The purpose of this study proposal is to provide these data.
