Results At baseline, patients were older (p,0.001) and percentage of male was higher (p,0.001) in the PC group. The PC group had higher DAS28 (3/CRP) (p,0.001) and poorer physical function (p,0.001), and received lower dosage of methotrexate (p,0.001). Percentage of patients receiving prednisolone (PSL) more than 7.5mg/day (p=0.001) and that of patients who had diabetes mellitus (DM) (p,0.001) were also higher in the PC group. There were 65 SIs (40 for pulmonary, 11 for skin and subcutaneous tissue, 14 other infections) in the PC group, and 89 SIs (42 for pulmonary, 21 for skin and subcutaneous tissue, 26 other infections) in the non-PC group. The crude incidence rate ratios comparing the PC group with the non-PC group were 2.8 (2.1-4.0) for all SIs and 3.7 (2.4-5.8) for pulmonary infections. Multivariate analyses revealed that age by decade (HR [95% CI], 1.8 [1.4-2.3]), presence of DM (1.9 [1.0-3.4]) and use of PSL ≥7.5mg/day (2.1 [1.2-3.7]) were significant risk factors for SIs in the PC ...

The present results demonstrate that IPC slightly but significantly attenuates the initial Na+ accumulation during ischemia and completed the [Na+]i recovery after 6 minutes of reperfusion compared with that in non-IPC hearts. In particular, when the recovery process was assessed by the time constant in the regression with %Δ[Na+]i=(100−α)exp(−t/τ)+α,1 time constants (τ) were not significantly different between control (1.09±0.20 minutes) and IPC hearts (1.30±0.17 minutes, P,0.05), but the irreversible accumulation (α) was significantly smaller in IPC hearts (1.03±0.80 versus 37.3±3.88 minutes in control, P,0.05). This indicates that the number of the irreversibly injured myocytes is significantly reduced in IPC hearts.. It was reported that IPC stimulates Na+ accumulation during ischemia.18 Although this was detected by 23Na-MRS, the appropriate methods to improve the resolution between intra- and extracellular Na+ peaks were not applied. In contrast, we carefully measured to ...

Ischemic heart disease (IHD) is currently the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the developed world, and is set to become the leading cause of death in the world by the year 2020, according to the World Health Organisation. Patients with severe IHD that require coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery, although protected by techniques such as cross-clamp fibrillation and cardioplegia, still sustain significant myocardial injury as evidenced by perioperative troponin T or I or CK-MB release. Novel treatment strategies are required to limit the myocardial injury sustained by patients undergoing CABG surgery in order to improve the clinical outcomes of this patient group.. One such cardioprotective strategy is remote ischemic preconditioning(RIPC) which describes the cardioprotection obtained from inducing ischemia in tissue or an organ remote from the heart. Our laboratory and others have established RIPC using forearm ischemia (induced by an automated cuff applied to the upper arm) ...
Remote ischemic preconditioning (rIPC) induced by cycles of transient limb ischemia and reperfusion is a powerful cardioprotective strategy with additional pleiotropic effects. However, our understanding of its underlying mediators and mechanisms remains incomplete. Researchers at the Hospital for Sick Children
In this study, we demonstrated that PC potentiated activation of survival pathways through PI-3 kinase signaling. Inhibition of PI-3 kinase with LY294002 abolished the protective effect of PC by stimulating apoptosis and DNA fragmentation without affecting LDH release from the myocytes. These data suggest that PI-3 kinase has an important role the in antiapoptotic effects of PC. Hypoxia followed by reoxygenation (H/R) was associated with both apoptotic and necrotic cell death, whereas hypoxia contributed to only a minimal amount of cell death. Therapeutic reperfusion is currently performed without any measure to protect myocardium from apoptosis during the treatment of myocardial infarction.23 Our results indicate that it may be possible to further limit the infarct size by inhibition of apoptosis, and PI-3 kinase might play a key role in this process. PC also stimulates phosphorylation of Akt, a kinase directly downstream of PI-3 kinase. Pretreatment with LY294002 blocks the PC-induced increase ...

Objectives. Pharmacological treatment of reperfusion injury using insulin and GSK3β inhibition has been shown to be cardioprotective, however, their interaction with the endogenous cardioprotective strategy, ischemic postconditioning, is not known. Design. Langendorff perfused ex vivo rat hearts were subjected to 30 min of regional ischemia and 120 min of reperfusion. For the first 15 min of reperfusion hearts received either vehicle (Ctr), insulin (Ins) or a GSK3β inhibitor (SB415286; SB41), with or without interruption of ischemic postconditioning (IPost; 3 × 30 s of global ischemia). In addition, the combination of insulin and SB41 for 15 min was assessed. Results. Insulin, SB41 or IPost significantly reduced infarct size versus vehicle treated controls (IPost 33.5 ± 3.3%, Ins 33.5 ± 3.4%, SB41 30.5 ± 3.0% vs. Ctr 54.7 ± 6.8%, p , 0.01). Combining insulin and SB415286 did not confer additional cardioprotection compared to the treatments given alone (SB41 + Ins 26.7 ± 3.5%, ns). ...

Ischaemic preconditioning is the most powerful endogenous mechanism for limiting myocardial infarct size in the experimental setting. Its clinical application is limited to scenarios in which the index episode of ischaemia and reperfusion can be anticipated such as in the setting of cardiac surgery • Ischaemic postconditioning represents an endogenous cardioprotective strategy which is applied at the onset of myocardial reperfusion, thereby allowing its use as an adjunct to reperfusion in patients presenting with an acute myocardial infarction • Both ischaemic preconditioning and postconditioning recruit a common signal transduction pathway at the time of myocardial reperfusion, which can be targeted by pharmacological agents administered as adjuncts to reperfusion. ...
TY - THES. T1 - Systemic response to local ischaemia: the evolving concept of remote ischaemic preconditioning. AU - Saxena, Pankaj. PY - 2009. Y1 - 2009. N2 - [Truncated abstract] Life on our planet is possible because of oxygen. All mammals, including humans, evolved with an innate mechanism by which organs and cells may protect themselves against lack or excess of oxygen to some extent. This lack and excess of oxygen that occurs during interruption and restoration of blood supply to an organ is referred to as ischaemia-reperfusion (IR). IR is a ubiquitous phenomenon that accounts for a number of pathophysiological conditions. A prolonged period of ischaemia followed by reperfusion causes IR injury and leads to significant damage to the affected organ. The activation of a systemic inflammatory response is associated with the most detrimental effects of IR injury. It has been noticed that brief episodes of intermittent ischaemia applied locally render significant protection against subsequent ...
Previous studies have shown that cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) mediates the late phase of ischemic preconditioning (PC) by producing various cardioprotective prostanoids including prostacyclin (PGI2) and prostaglandin (PG) E2 (PGE2). Prostanoids are known to act via activation of specific receptors. However, the specific PG receptors responsible for the salubrious actions of COX-2 in PC and myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury remain unclear. The PGI2 receptor (IP) mediates the actions of PGI2 and PGE2, the two major COX-2-derived prostanoids with cardioprotective properties. Accordingly, the goal of this study was to determine the role of the IP in late PC. C57BL/6 mice underwent a 30-min coronary occlusion (O) followed by 24 h of reperfusion (R). Administration of the IP receptor selective antagonist, RO 3244794 (group III, 10 mg/kg i.p.), 30 min prior to the 30-min O had no appreciable effect on infarct size compared with untreated and vehicle-treated groups (68.4 ± 1.2 % vs. 63.3 ± 3.1 % and ...
Hypoxic preconditioning was shown to improve the therapeutic efficacy of bone fragments marrow-derived multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) upon transplantation in ischemic tissue. delicate to simulated ischemia when they had been preconditioned for 24 l, while their simple behavior, karyotype and immunophenotype in lifestyle remained unrevised. Right here, post-ischemic cell amount and metabolic activity had been improved and caspase-3/7 activity and lactate dehydrogenase discharge had been decreased as likened to non-preconditioned cells. Phosphorylation of Poor and AKT, mRNA reflection of BCL-XL, VEGF and BAG1, and VEGF proteins release had been higher in preconditioned cells. Preconditioned cable bloodstream MSCs improved HUVEC growth and migration Hypoxically, while nitric Rostafuroxin (PST-2238) manufacture oxide creation continued to be unrevised. We finish that hypoxic preconditioning defends cable bloodstream MSCs by account activation of anti-apoptotic signaling systems and ...
Ischemia associated injury of the myocardium is caused by oxidative damage during reperfusion. Myocardial protection by ischemic preconditioning (IPC) was shown to be mediated by a transient iron-signal that leads to the accumulation of apoferritin and sequestration of reactive iron released during the ischemia. Here we identified the source of this iron signal and evaluated its role in the mechanisms of cardiac protection by hypoxic preconditioning. Rat hearts were retrogradely perfused and the effect of proteasomal and lysosomal protease inhibitors on ferritin levels were measured. The iron-signal was abolished, ferritin levels were not increased and cardiac protection was diminished by inhibition of the proteasome prior to IPC. Similarly, double amounts of ferritin and better recovery after ex vivo ischemia-and-reperfusion (I/R) were found in hearts from in vivo hypoxia pre-conditioned animals. IPC followed by normoxic perfusion for 30 min (delay) prior to I/R caused a reduced ferritin

Innate immune signaling is important in the pathophysiology of ischemia/reperfusion (stroke) induced injury and recovery. Several lines of evidence support a central role for microglia in these processes. Recent work has identified Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and type I interferon (IFN) signaling in both ischemia/reperfusion-induced brain injury and ischemic preconditioning-mediated neuroprotection. To determine the effects of ischemia/reperfusion-like conditions on microglia we carried out genomic analyses on wild-type (WT) and TLR4-/- cultured microglia following sequential exposure to hypoxia/hypoglycemia and normoxia/normoglycemia (H/H-N/N). We observed increased expression of type 1 IFN-stimulated genes (ISGs) as the predominant transcriptomal feature of H/H-N/N-exposed WT, but not TLR4-/-, microglia. Microarray analysis on ex vivo sorted microglia from ipsilateral male mouse cortex following a transient in vivo ischemic pulse also demonstrated robust expression of ISGs. Type 1 IFNs, ...
Although extensive attention has been devoted to the window of preconditioning, only few studies investigated the efficacy of preconditioning against ischemia with increasing durations. To date, a ceiling of protection has been demonstrated to occur with early preconditioning but nothing is known about delayed preconditioning. Accordingly, the efficacy of a nitric oxide (NO)-donor-induced delayed preconditioning was tested against ischemic insults of increasing duration. Accordingly, 65 rabbits received a 75-min intravenous infusion of either saline (control group), or an NO-donor (S-nitroso-N-acetylpenicillamine) at 3 μg/kg/min (SNAP-3 group) or 30 μg/kg/min (SNAP-30 group). Twenty-four hours later, rabbits randomly underwent either a 15-, 20-, or a 30-min coronary artery occlusion (CAO). Infarct size was assessed after 72-h reperfusion (triphenyltetrazolium chloride staining, percentage of the area at risk). After 15-min CAO, both SNAP-3 and SNAP-30 reduced infarct size compared with ...
Cardioprotection encompasses several regimens that have shown to preserve function and viability of cardiac muscle cell tissue subjected to ischemic insult or reoxygenation. Cardioprotection includes strategies that are implemented before an ischemic event (preconditioning, PC), during an ischemic event (perconditioning, PerC) and after the event and during reperfusion (postconditioning, PostC). These strategies can be further stratified by performing the intervention locally or remotely, creating classes of conditioning known as remote ischemic PC (RIPC), remote ischemic PostC and remost ischemic PerC. Classical (local) preconditioning has an early phase with an immediate onset lasting 2-3 hours that protects against myocardial infarction. The early phase involves post-translational modification of preexisting proteins, brought about by the activation of G protein-coupled receptors as well as downstream MAPKs and PI3/Akt. These signaling events act on the ROS-generating mitochondria, activate ...

Volatile anesthetics not only induce anesthesia, but also render organs resistant against ischemic damage. For example, the magnitude of an experimentally induced myocardial infarct size can be reduced by more than 50% by the administration of volatile anesthetics, even if the administration has been discontinued prior to the ischemic injury (anesthetic-induced preconditioning, APC). These protective effects are also effective in other organ systems; e.g. the brain. APC is as effective as ischemic preconditioning and thus represents one of the most potent therapeutic strategies of infarct size reduction. Surgery-related temporary ischemia of the heart or the brain can be prevented using APC in the perioperative period ...
Preconditioning, the phenomenon whereby brief episodes of ischemia or pharmacological agents protect the myocardium against subsequent ischemic injury, consists of an early and a late phase.1 The early phase develops immediately and disappears within 1 to 2 hours of ischemic preconditioning stimulus, whereas the late phase, also known as the second window of protection, becomes manifest after 12 to 24 hours and lasts for 3 to 4 days. An understanding of the signaling mechanisms that trigger and mediate this cardioprotective phenomenon would have vast physiological and pathological implications. Accordingly, many recent studies have focused on the characterization and delineation of the signal transduction pathways (molecules) underlying the development and manifestation of both the early and late phases of preconditioning. The general hypothesis is that the preconditioning stimulus will induce the activation of a cascade of stress-responsive kinases, which in turn transduce the stress signal ...

Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors are a class of oral anti-diabetic drugs, implicated in pleiotropic secondary cardioprotective effects. The aim of the study was to unveil the unknown and possible cardioprotective targets that can be exerted by sitagliptin (Sitg) against ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. Male wistar rats received 2 weeks’ Sitg oral treatment of different doses (25, 50, 100, and 150 mg/kg/day), or saline as a Control. Hearts were then isolated and subjected to two different I/R injury protocols: 10 min perfusion, 45 min regional ischemia, and 120 min reperfusion for infarct size (IS) measurement, or: 10 min perfusion, 45 min regional ischemia and 10 min reperfusion for biochemical analysis: nitric oxide synthases (NOSs) and DPP-4 activity, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), Calcium, transient receptor potential vanilloid (TRPV)-1 and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) levels, transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC)-1 and e-NOS protein expression.

Exogenously administered B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) has been shown to offer cardioprotection through activation of particulate guanylyl cyclase (pGC), protein kinase G (PKG) and KATP channel opening. The current study explores if cardioprotection afforded by short intermittent BNP administration involves PI3K/Akt/p70s6k dependent signaling, and whether this signaling pathway may participate in regulation of BNP mRNA expression at early reperfusion. Isolated Langendorff perfused rat hearts were subjected to 30 min of regional ischemia and 120 min of reperfusion (IR). Applying intermittent 3 × 30 s infusion of BNP peptide in a postconditioning like manner (BNPPost) reduced infarct size by ,50% compared to controls (BNPPost 17 ± 2% vs. control 42 ± 4%, p , 0.001). Co-treatment with inhibitors of the PI3K/Akt/p70s6k pathway (wortmannin, SH-6 and rapamycin) completely abolished the infarct-limiting effect of BNP postconditioning (BNPPost + Wi 36 ± 5%, BNPPost + SH-6 41 ± 4%, BNPPost + Rap ...
