The effect of hyperbaric oxygen preconditioning on heat shock protein 72 expression following in vitro stress in human monocytes (2010)
Journal Article
Midgley, A. W., Madden, L. A., Vince, R. V., & Laden, G. (2011). The effect of hyperbaric oxygen preconditioning on heat shock protein 72 expression following in vitro stress in human monocytes. Cell Stress and Chaperones, 16(3), 339-343. doi:10.1007/s12192-010-0246-2

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) is thought to confer protection to cells via a cellular response to free radicals. This process may involve increased expression of heat shock proteins, in particular the highly inducible heat shock protein 72 (Hsp72). Healthy... Read More

Emergence of the verification phase procedure for confirming ‘true’V̇O2max (2009)
Journal Article
Midgley, A. W., & Carroll, S. (2009). Emergence of the verification phase procedure for confirming ‘true’V̇O2max. Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports, 19(3), 313-322. doi:10.1111/j.1600-0838.2009.00898.x

Traditional VO2max criteria are typically based on attainment of a VO2 plateau, and threshold values for the respiratory exchange ratio, heart rate and blood lactate concentration. Despite long-standing criticisms directed at these criteria, their us... Read More

Release of VCAM-1 associated endothelial microparticles following simulated SCUBA dives (2008)
Journal Article
Midgley, A. W., Vince, R. V., Madden, L. A., McNaughton, L. R., Vince, R., Laden, G., & Taylor, L. (2009). Release of VCAM-1 associated endothelial microparticles following simulated SCUBA dives. European journal of applied physiology, 105(4), 507-513. doi:10.1007/s00421-008-0927-z

Microparticles (MP) are shed into the circulation from endothelium following activation or apoptosis. Vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) is expressed on endothelial cells following activation and here we report quantification of VCAM-1 positi... Read More
