Stem Cell Mobilization by Hyperbaric Oxygen

Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 290: H1378–H1386, 2006. First published November 18, 2005; doi:10.1152/ajpheart.00888.2005.

This is a research article done on humans and mice.  With regard to humans, the authors concluded that HBOT mobilizes stem/progenitor cells (SPC) by stimulating nitric oxide synthesis and the SPCs remain elevated over the course of 20 treatments.

This is important because stem/progenitor cells (SPC) are used in healing.  This research article shows that HBOT can mobilize SPCs and therefore increase healing potential in humans.
