    • BACKGROUND: The adhesive mechanisms regulating leucocyte-endothelium interactions in the pancreas remain elusive, but selectins may play a role. This study examined the molecular mechanisms mediating leucocyte rolling along the endothelium in the pancreas and the therapeutic potential of targeting the rolling adhesive interaction in acute pancreatitis (AP). METHODS: Pancreatitis was induced by retrograde infusion of 5 per cent sodium taurocholate into the pancreatic duct, repeated intraperitoneal administration of caerulein (50 µg/kg) or intraperitoneal administration of L-arginine (4 g/kg) in C57BL/6 mice. A control and a monoclonal antibody against P-selectin were administered before and after induction of AP. Serum and tissue were sampled to assess the severity of pancreatitis, and intravital microscopy was used to study leucocyte rolling. RESULTS: Taurocholate infusion into the pancreatic duct increased the serum level of trypsinogen, trypsinogen activation, pancreatic neutrophil infiltration, macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP) 2 formation and tissue damage. Immunoneutralization of P-selectin decreased the taurocholate-induced increase in serum trypsinogen (median (range) 17·35 (12·20-30·00) versus 1·55 (0·60-15·70) µg/l; P = 0·017), neutrophil accumulation (4·00 (0·75-4·00) versus 0·63 (0-3·25); P = 0·002) and tissue damage, but had no effect on MIP-2 production (14·08 (1·68-33·38) versus 3·70 (0·55-51·80) pg/mg; P = 0·195) or serum trypsinogen activating peptide level (1·10 (0·60-1·60) versus 0·45 (0-1·80) µg/l; P = 0·069). Intravital fluorescence microscopy revealed that anti-P-selectin antibody inhibited leucocyte rolling completely in postcapillary venules of the inflamed pancreas. CONCLUSION: Inhibition of P-selectin protected against pancreatic tissue injury in experimental pancreatitis. Targeting P-selectin may be an effective strategy to ameliorate inflammation in AP.

  • Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography with rendezvous cannulation reduces pancreatic injury
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: World Journal of Gastroenterology. - : WJG Press. - 1007-9327 .- 2219-2840. ; 19:36, s. 6026-6034

    • AIM: To examine whether rendezvous endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is associated with less pancreatic damage, measured as leakage of proenzymes, than conventional ERCP. METHODS: Patients (n = 122) with symptomatic gallstone disease, intact papilla and no ongoing inflammation, were prospectively enrolled in this case-control designed study. Eighty-one patients were subjected to laparoscopic cholecystectomy and if intraoperative cholangiography suggested common bile duct stones (CBDS), rendezvous ERCP was performed intraoperatively (n = 40). Patients with a negative cholangiogram constituted the control group (n = 41). Another 41 patients with CBDS, not subjected to surgery, underwent conventional ERCP. Pancreatic proenzymes, procarboxypeptidase B and trypsinogen-2 levels in plasma, were analysed at 0, 4, 8 and 24 h. The proenzymes were determined in-house with a double-antibody enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. Pancreatic amylase was measured by an enzymatic colourimetric modular analyser with the manufacturer's reagents. All samples were blinded at analysis. RESULTS: Post ERCP pancreatitis (PEP) occurred in 3/41 (7%) of the patients cannulated with conventional ERCP and none in the rendezvous group. Increased serum levels indicating pancreatic leakage were significantly higher in the conventional ERCP group compared with the rendezvous ERCP group regarding pancreatic amylase levels in the 4- and 8-h samples (P = 0.0015; P = 0.03), procarboxypeptidase B in the 4- and 8-h samples (P < 0.0001; P < 0.0001) and trypsinogen-2 in the 24-hour samples (P = 0.03). No differences in these markers were observed in patients treated with rendezvous cannulation technique compared with patients that underwent cholecystectomy alone (control group). Post procedural concentrations of pancreatic amylase and procarboxypeptidase B were significantly correlated with pancreatic duct cannulation and opacification. CONCLUSION: Rendezvous ERCP reduces pancreatic enzyme leakage compared with conventional ERCP cannulation technique. Thus, laparo-endoscopic technique can be recommended with the ambition to minimise the risk for post ERCP pancreatitis. (C) 2013 Baishideng. All rights reserved.

  • Protective effect of fasudil, a Rho-kinase inhibitor, on chemokine expression, leukocyte recruitment, and hepatocellular apoptosis in septic liver injury.

    • Rho-kinase signaling regulates important features of inflammatory reactions. Herein, we investigated the effect and mechanisms of action of the Rho-kinase inhibitor fasudil in endotoxemic liver injury. C57/BL/6 mice were challenged with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and D-galactosamine, with or without pretreatment with the Rho-kinase inhibitor fasudil. Six hours after endotoxin challenge, leukocyte-endothelium interactions in the hepatic microvasculature were studied by use of intravital fluorescence microscopy and tumor necrosis factor {alpha} (TNF-{alpha}); CXC chemokines as well as liver enzymes and apoptosis were determined. Administration of fasudil reduced LPS-induced leukocyte adhesion in postsinusoidal venules and sequestration in sinusoids. Moreover, we found that fasudil abolished extravascular infiltration of leukocytes as well as production of TNF-{alpha} and CXC chemokines in the liver of endotoxemic mice. Liver enzymes and hepatocellular apoptosis were markedly reduced, and sinusoidal perfusion was improved significantly in endotoxemic mice pretreated with fasudil. Our novel data document that fasudil is a potent inhibitor of endotoxin-induced expression of TNF-{alpha} and CXC chemokines as well as leukocyte infiltration and hepatocellular apoptosis in the liver. Based on the present findings, it is suggested that inhibition of the Rho-kinase signaling pathway may be a useful target in the treatment of septic liver injury.

  • Heparin protects against skin flap necrosis: relationship to neutrophil recruitment and anti-coagulant activity
  • 2004

    • Objective and design: Heparin has been shown to improve survival of surgical skin flaps. However, it is not known whether the protective effect of heparin is related to it's anticoagulative or anti-inflammatory effects. Methods: Surgical flaps were raised in the dorsal skin of Sprague-Dawley rats. Neutrophil recruitment was determined by measuring the tissue content of myeloperoxidase (MPO) and clotting time was estimated by assessment of activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) in plasma. Results: Administration of heparin (150 U/kg) significantly increased skin flap survival from 44 % in vehicle-treated controls to 91 %. This heparin treatment increased APTT by 4.5 fold. However, administration of 150 U/kg of heparin had no effect on skin flap neutrophil recruitment. In contrast, we found that the polysaccharide fucoidan reduced MPO and also improved skin flap survival. Conclusions: In conclusion, we demonstrate that protective effect of clinically relevant doses of heparin correlates with its' ability to prolong clotting time and not to inhibition of neutrophil accumulation in the healing of skin flaps.

  • Important role of CD18 in TNF-alpha-induced leukocyte adhesion in muscle and skin venules in vivo
  • 2000

    • OBJECTIVE: To examine the role of CD 18 in tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha)-induced leukocyte adhesion and extravasation in vivo. MATERIAL: Male wild-type (WT) and mutated mice with hypomorphic expression of CD 18. METHODS: Intravital microscopy was used to quantitate leukocyte-endothelium interactions provoked by TNF-alpha (0.5 microg) in the cremaster muscle and dorsal skin microcirculation. Tissue recruitment of leukocytes was evaluated in wholemounts of the cremaster muscle and in air pouches in the dorsal skin after TNF-alpha stimulation. RESULTS: TNF-alpha markedly increased venular leukocyte adhesion and recruitment in the cremaster muscle and skin in WT. Notably, in CD 18-targeted animals, leukocyte adhesion triggered by TNF-alpha challenge was significantly reduced by 58% and 72% in venules of the cremaster muscle and skin, respectively. Moreover, in CD18-mutants, tissue accumulation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs) provoked by TNF-alpha in the muscle and skin was decreased by 84% and 70%, respectively. Interestingly, the observed level of reduction in TNF-alpha-induced neutrophil adhesion and recruitment in CD18 gene-targeted animals corresponded well with the decrease in CD 18 expression on neutrophils from these mice, i.e. the surface density of CD18 was reduced by 77% in mutants compared to WT. Differential analysis revealed that the extravascular leukocytes comprised more than 90% PMNLs, indicating that neutrophils were the main inflammatory cell responding to TNF-alpha activation. Notably, the expression of CD18 increased by more than two-fold on extravasated neutrophils compared to circulating neutrophils in the peripheral blood both in WT and mutant animals. CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that CD18 is a dominant mediator of firm neutrophil adhesion to venular endothelial cells in the muscle and skin stimulated by TNF-alpha in vivo. In addition, this decreased adhesion in CD18-mutants attenuates leukocyte extravasation in response to TNF-alpha activation. Thus, inhibition of CD 18-function may provide an important strategy to inhibit leukocyte recruitment in cytokine-dependent diseases.

  • CD40L is not involved in acute experimental pancreatitis

    • Recent data suggest that platelets not only control thrombosis and hemostasis but may also regulate inflammatory processes such as acute pancreatitis. However, the specific role of platelet-derived mediators in the pathophysiology of acute pancreatitis is not known. Herein, we examined the role of CD40 ligand (CD40L, CD154) in different models of acute pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis was induced by repetitive caerulein administration (50 mu g/kg, i.p.) or infusion of sodium taurocholate (5%-10 mu l) into the pancreatic duct in wild-type C578L/6 and CD40L-deficient mice. Neutrophil infiltration, myeloperoxidase (MPO), macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (MIP-2) levels, acinar cell necrosis, edema and hemorrhage in the pancreas as well as serum amylase activity and lung levels of MPO were quantified 24 h after induction of acute pancreatitis. Caerulein and taurocholate challenge caused a clear-cut pancreatic damage characterized by increased acinar cell necrosis, neutrophil infiltration, focal hemorrhage, edema formation as well as increased levels of serum amylase and MIP-2 in the pancreas and lung MPO and histological damage. Notably, CD40L gene-deficient animals exhibited a similar phenotype as wild-type mice after challenge with caerulein and taurocholate. Similarly, administration of an antibody directed against CD40L had no effect against acute pancreatitis. Our data suggest that CD40L does not play a functional role in experimental acute pancreatitis. Thus, other candidates than CD40L needs to be explored in order to identify platelet-derived mediators in the pathophysiology of acute pancreatitis. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
