Cardiovascular responses to orthostatic stress in healthy altitude dwellers, and altitude residents with chronic mountain sickness

, : Cardiovascular responses to orthostatic stress in healthy altitude dwellers, and altitude residents with chronic mountain sickness. Experimental Physiology 90(1): 103-110

High altitude (HA) dwellers have an exceptionally high tolerance to orthostatic stress, and this may partly be related to their high packed cell and blood volumes. However, it is not known whether their orthostatic tolerance would be changed after relief of the altitude-related hypoxia.

An sIL-6R/IL-6 chimera, directly fusing the natural forms of soluble IL-6 receptor and IL-6, as found in human body fluids, was produced in transfected human cells. The secreted p85 glycoprotein was active at a concentration of 120 pM to produce g...
