Harnessing the preconditioning phenomenon: does remote organ ischaemia provide the answer?

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

Despite progress in defining the cellular mechanisms of the ischaemic preconditioning phenomenon, its conversion into convenient clinical practice has been slow. The possibility that an innate mechanism of tissue resistance to ischaemia could be harnessed as a clinical tool is an attractive and enticing prospect.
