    • OBJECTIVE: To study fat metabolism and evaluate lipid deposition in hepatocytes and Kupffer cells during parenteral nutrition (PN) with or without fat. DESIGN: 20 male Sprague-Dawley rats, divided into four groups, were investigated. Rats fed orally were used as a reference group and compared to three groups of rats receiving PN either without fat or with 33% of non-protein energy as fat or with 66% of non-protein energy as fat. The PN regimens were equicaloric and administered continuously via a jugular catheter for 7 days. INTERVENTIONS: After suffocation, blood was collected for determination of serum lipids. Epididymal fat and heart were collected for analysis of lipoprotein lipase activities, and pieces of liver were saved for analyses of liver triglyceride concentration and hepatic lipase activity. Light and electron microscopy were used for examination of lipid deposition in Kupffer cells. RESULTS: Directly after termination of parenteral feeding, the serum levels of triglycerides were similar in all PN groups, while the levels of non-high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and non-HDL phospholipids were significantly increased in parallel with increased doses of fat. Lipid-free PN resulted in significantly less liver steatosis than high-fat PN. Lipid PN also resulted in downregulated hepatic lipase activity, signs of lipid accumulation in Kupffer cells and hepatocytes and an increased number of phagosomes in Kupffer cells. CONCLUSIONS: Fat vacuoles were found in Kupffer cells after lipid PN, although serum levels of triglycerides were not elevated and lipoprotein lipase activity were not depressed. The cells were distended by fat vacuoles after administration of PN solutions with a high fat concentration. Morphological signs of increased Kupffer cell activity were also found, suggesting that intravenous fat emulsions may activate macrophages.

    • The expression and activities of constitutive nitric oxide synthase (cNOS) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in relation to insulin and glucagon secretory mechanisms were investigated in islets isolated from rats subjected to total parenteral nutrition (TPN) for 10 d. TPN is known to result in significantly increased levels of plasma lipids during the infusion time. In comparison with islets from freely fed control rats, islets taken from TPN rats at d 10 displayed a marked decrease in glucose-stimulated insulin release (4.65 +/- 0.45 ng/[islet x h] vs 10.25 +/- 0.65 for controls) (p < 0.001) accompanied by a strong iNOS activity (18.3 +/- 1.1 pmol of NO/[min x mg of protein]) and a modestly reduced cNOS activity (11.3 +/- 3.2 pmol of NO/[min x mg of protein] vs 17.7 +/- 1.7 for controls) (p < 0.01). Similarly, Western blots showed the expression of iNOS protein as well as a significant reduction in cNOS protein in islets from TPN-treated rats. The enhanced NO production, which is known to inhibit glucose-stimulated insulin release, was manifested as a strong increase in the cyclic guanosine 5'-monophosphate content in the islets of TPN-treated rats (1586 +/- 40 amol/islet vs 695 +/- 64 [p < 0.001] for controls). Moreover, the content of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) was greatly increased in the TPN islets (80.4 +/- 2.1 fmol/islet vs 42.6 +/- 2.6 [p < 0.001] for controls). The decrease in glucose-stimulated insulin release was associated with an increase in the activity of the secretory pathway regulated by the cAMP system in the islets of TPN-treated rats, since the release of insulin stimulated by the phosphodiesterase inhibitor isobutylmethylxanthine was greatly increased both in vivo after iv injection and after in vitro incubation of isolated islets. By contrast, the release of glucagon was clearly reduced in islets taken from TPN-treated rats (33.5 +/- 1.5 pg/[islet x h] vs 45.5 +/- 2.2 for controls) (p < 0.01) when islets were incubated at low glucose (1.0 mmol/L). The data show that long-term TPN treatment in rats brings about impairment of glucose-stimulated insulin release, that might be explained by iNOS expression and a marked iNOS-derived NO production in the beta-cells. The release of glucagon, on the other hand, is probably decreased by a direct "nutrient effect" of the enhanced plasma lipids. The results also suggest that the islets of TPN-treated rats have developed compensatory insulin secretory mechanisms by increasing the activity of their beta-cell cAMP system.

  • TPN-evoked dysfunction of islet lysosomal activity mediates impairment of glucose-stimulated insulin release
  • 2001
  • Ingår i: American Journal of Physiology: Endocrinology and Metabolism. - American Physiological Society. - 1522-1555. ; 281:1, s. 171-179

    • We examined the relation between nutrient-stimulated insulin secretion and the islet lysosome acid glucan-1,4-alpha-glucosidase system in rats undergoing total parenteral nutrition (TPN). During TPN treatment, serum glucose was normal, but free fatty acids, triglycerides, and cholesterol were elevated. Islets from TPN-infused rats showed increased basal insulin release, a normal insulin response to cholinergic stimulation but a greatly impaired response when stimulated by glucose or alpha-ketoisocaproic acid. This impairment of glucose-stimulated insulin release was only slightly ameliorated by the carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1 inhibitor etomoxir. However, in parallel with the impaired insulin response to glucose, islets from TPN-infused animals displayed reduced activities of islet lysosomal enzymes including the acid glucan-1,4-alpha-glucosidase, a putative key enzyme in nutrient-stimulated insulin release. By comparison, the same lysosomal enzymes were increased in liver tissue. Furthermore, in intact control islets, the pseudotetrasaccharide acarbose, a selective inhibitor of acid alpha-glucosidehydrolases, dose dependently suppressed islet acid glucan-1,4-alpha-glucosidase and acid alpha-glucosidase activities in parallel with an inhibitory action on glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. By contrast, when incubated with intact TPN islets, acarbose had no effect on either enzyme activity or glucose-induced insulin release. Moreover, when acarbose was added directly to TPN islet homogenates, the dose-response effect on the catalytic activity of the acid alpha-glucosidehydrolases was shifted to the right compared with control homogenates. We suggest that a general dysfunction of the islet lysosomal/vacuolar system and reduced catalytic activities of acid glucan-1,4-alpha-glucosidase and acid alpha-glucosidase may be important defects behind the impairment of the transduction mechanisms for nutrient-stimulated insulin release in islets from TPN-infused rats.

  • An open prospective study evaluating efficacy and safety of a new medical device for rectal application of activated carbon in the treatment of chronic, uncomplicated perianal fistulas
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Colorectal Disease. - Springer. - 0179-1958. ; 32:4, s. 509-512

    • Purpose: It has been proposed that biological/chemical substances in the intestine might play a role in the occurrence and deterioration of perianal fistulas. Elimination of such unidentified factors from the lower gastrointestinal tract might offer a new strategy for the management of anal fistulas. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical effects on non-Crohn’s disease perianal fistula healing, and the safety and tolerability of a new medical device that applies high-purity, high-activity granular activated carbon locally into the rectum twice daily of patients with perianal fistulas without any concomitant medication. Methods: An open, single-arm, prospective study with active treatment for 8 weeks and an optional follow-up until week 24 (ClinicalTrial.govidentifier NCT01462747) among patients with chronic, uncomplicated perianal fistulas scheduled for surgery was conducted. Results: Of 28 patients included, 10 patients (35.7%) showed complete fistula healing (closed, no discharge on palpation) after 8 weeks; seven of these patients, corresponding to 25% of the enrolled patients, remained in remission for up to 31 weeks. At week 8, there was a statistically significant reduction in the discharge visual analog scale (p = 0.04), a significant improvement in the patient-perceived quality of life for the category of embarrassment (p = 0.002), and a trend toward improvement in the other assessment categories. Conclusions: The treatment was well tolerated, and patient acceptance was high. The results support the efficacy and safety of locally administered activated carbon for the treatment of patients with chronic uncomplicated perianal fistulas not receiving any other medication for fistula problems.

  • Working Capacity and Well-Being after Radical Cystectomy with Continent Cutaneous Diversion.
  • 2006
  • Ingår i: European Urology. - Elsevier. - 1873-7560. ; 49:4, s. 691-697
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objectives: The primary aim was to compare the working capacity in patients with continent urinary diversion with a control group. Secondary aims were to assess the changes in electrolyte and acid-base homeostasis and the functional status during strenuous physical activity, and finally, the well-being in the two groups. Methods: Eleven patients who had undergone radical cystectomy and continent cutaneous diversion using an ileocolonic segment participated. The control group consisted of 12 men, matched for age and activity level. Working capacity was assessed by ergospirometry on an exercise bicycle. Venous blood samples were taken before the test, when the expiratory exchange ratio (RER) was about 1.0 and immediately after completion of the test. SF-36 was used to evaluate the subject's functional status and well-being. Results: The median working capacity in the patient group was 155 (85190) W and 155 (125-215) W in the control group (n.s.) corresponding to 72 (43-97) % and 80 (59-97) % respectively of predicted values. Peak oxygen uptake was somewhat low in both groups when compared to P-O Astrands norms. Blood tests revealed that patients developed a slight metabolic hyperchloremic acidosis, not seen in the control group. There were no differences between the groups as assessed with SF-36. Conclusion: Patients with a continent urinary diversion have a working capacity equal to a control group despite a slight metabolic hyperchloremic acidosis. Quality of life was similar in the two groups and corresponded well with the norms for the general Swedish population aged 65 to 74. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
