Interestingly, through various administrations, these molecules also exhibit potential in cancer treatment. Recently, hydrogen gas (formula: H2) emerges as another GSM which possesses multiple bioactivities, including anti-inflammation, anti-reactive oxygen species, and anti-cancer. Growing evidence has shown that hydrogen gas can either alleviate the side effects caused by conventional chemotherapeutics, or suppress the growth of cancer cells and xenograft tumor, suggesting its broad potent application in clinical therapy. In the current review, we summarize these studies and discuss the underlying mechanisms. The application of hydrogen gas in cancer treatment is still in its nascent stage, further mechanistic study and the development of portable instruments are warranted. Keywords: hydrogen gas, ROS, inflammation, combination, anti-cancer INTRODUCTION Gaseous signaling molecules (GSMs) refer to a group of gaseous molecules, such as oxygen (1), nitric oxide (2), carbon monoxide (3), hydrogen sulfide (4), sulfur dioxide (5, 6), ethylene (7, 8), etc. These gaseous molecules possess multiple critical functions in regulating cell biology in vivo via signal transduction (9). More importantly, certain GSMs could serve as therapeutic agents in primary cancer, as well as in multidrug-resistant cancer treatment when used by directly or certain pharmaceutical formulations (9–13). In addition, some of these GSMs can be generated in body via different bacteria or enzymes, such as nitric oxide, hydrogen sulfide, indicating that they are more compatible molecules that may exhibit less adverse effects compared with conventional chemotherapeutics (9, 14, 15). Recently, hydrogen gas has been recognized as another important GSM in biology, exhibiting appealing potential in health care for its role in preventing cell injury from various attacking (16–19). With the formula of H2, hydrogen gas is the lightest molecule in the nature which only accounts for about 0.5 parts per million (ppm) of all the gas. Naturally, hydrogen gas is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, non-toxic, highly combustible gas which may form explosive mixtures with air in concentrations from 4 to 74% that can be triggered by spark, heat, or sunlight. Hydrogen gas can be generated in small amount by hydrogenase of certain members of the human gastrointestinal tract microbiota from unabsorbed carbohydrates in the intestine through degradation and metabolism (20, 21), which then is partially diffused into blood flow and released and detected in exhaled breath (20), indicating its potential to serve as a biomarker.

Infinity Supercritical has developed the most profitable Supercritical CO2 Extraction Machines. Our CO2 terpene extraction system rapidly produces shelf-ready oils which make more money. Perfect for hemp oil extraction using environmentally friendly CO2 extraction equipment. Manufactures efficient oil extraction systems and machines for natural terpenes, flavorings, fragrance, hemp, beer hops, lavender and other botanicals. New for 2021 includes Molecular Hydrogen Skin Cream Machine for production of high value cosmetic skin cream. Silent technology includes supercritical co2, oil-to-oil extraction using induction magnetic mixing, and eco friendly hydrodynamic cavitation water as the solvent in our closed-looped systems. The process can also be used for electrowinning, e-waste recycling, and lithium battery recycling, gold mining electronic wastes, precious metals. CO2 can also be used in a reverse fuel cell with nafion to make a gas-to-liquids fuel, such as methanol, ethanol and butanol or ethylene. Supercritical CO2 has also been used for treating nafion to make it more effective catalyst. SCO2 can remove water from wood as an alternative to conventional kiln drying.
