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.
