– Wall Street Journal, October 7, 2019


The 2019 Nobel Prize In Physiology or Medicine was awarded to three scientists, according to the Nobel Prize Committee, “for their discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability.” The Wall Street Journal said the 20-year research of Drs. Gregg Semenza (Johns Hopkins), Sir Peter Ratcliffe (Oxford) and William Kaelin, Jr. (Dana-Farber, Harvard Medical) discovered “how cells adapt as a result of high altitudes.”

As Altitude International President and 12-year NBA veteran Greg Anthony noted, “We’ve known that the science of training at altitude is undeniable. Our chambers at Altitude International document the benefits of altitude training for elite teams and athletes. Congratulations to the groundbreaking work of these Nobel scientists, who spent decades discovering how those cells adapt to changes in oxygen.”

The Wall Street Journal added, “When oxygen levels drop as a result of high altitude, the kidneys produce more of the hormone EPO, which stimulates production of red blood cells to transport more oxygen.”

Altitude International, with its cutting edge and patented technology, has the capability, technology and expertise to help improve every athlete’s performance.
