The Air Force had issued a number of precautionary measures to be followed by pilots in order to avoid dizziness or other hypoxia symptoms when they were up in the air.
We hypothesized that during hypoxia, an increase in the HIF-1[alpha] and VEGF protein expression would lead to an increase in bladder cancer cell permeability, and that HIF-1[alpha] is an important factor in the increase of bladder cancer cell permeability.

sup][6],[7] Hypoxia activates signaling through hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1a, which is a transcriptional complex with a crucial role in oxygen-regulated gene expression and it is upregulated by growth factors, cytokines, oncogenes, and hormones under hypoxic conditions.

It is this lower pressure/lower oxygen density that is the root cause of hypoxia, or lack of oxygen.
Most solid tumors exhibit inflammatory properties characterized by increased levels of prostaglandins, which are promoted by hypoxia, a state of reduced overall tissue oxygen availability and a hallmark of solid tumor that also leads to cell invasion and metastasis (Stasinopoulos et al.

Inflammatory hypoxia is increasingly recognized as a critical determinant for the immune response.
Geological Survey, Sea Grant, and partners recently found that dead zones caused by hypoxia (the depletion of oxygen in water) are unexpectedly variable in Lake Erie, sometimes disappearing and reemerging elsewhere in a matter of hours* They also found that fish like yellow perch cluster at the edges of these areas.
