ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the protective effects of levosimendan combined with lyophilized recombinant human brain natriuretic peptide (rhBNP) on myocardium in patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated by heart failure.Methods:140 patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated by heart failure who received treatment in Changxing People's Hospital from June 2018 to June 2020 were included in this study. They were randomly assigned to receive either routine treatment (control group, n = 70) or routine treatment, levosimendan combined with rhBNP (study group, n = 70). Serum levels of creatine kinase (CK)-MB, cardiac troponin I (cTnI), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), which were associated with myocardial injury, were measured in each group. In addition, the changes in cardiac ultrasound indexes left ventricular end diastolic diameter (LVEDD), left ventricular end systolic diameter (LVESD) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) were observed. Clinical effects on heart failure were evaluated. Adverse drug reactions were monitored during the treatment. Results:After treatment, CK-MB, cTnI, LDH and hs-CRP levels in the study group were (56.73 ± 12.15) U/L, (0.41 ± 0.19) μg/L, (126.83 ± 15.26) U/L and (1.59 ± 0.27) mg/L, respectively, which were significantly lower than those in the control group [(78.52 ± 14.07) U/L, (0.68 ± 0.21) μg/L, (187.25 ± 23.04) U/L, (2.84 ± 0.41) mg/L, t = 5.569-12.418, all P < 0.05]. LVEDD and LVESD in the study group were significantly lower than those in the control group, while LVEF in the study group was significantly higher than that in the control group ( t = 4.435-6.426, all P < 0.05). Total effective rate in the study group was significantly higher than that in the control group [88.57% (62/70) vs. 72.86% (51/70), χ2 = 5.552, P < 0.05]. There was no significant difference in total incidence of adverse drug reactions between study and control groups [11.43% (8/70) vs. 8.57% (6/70), χ2 = 0.317, P > 0.05]. Conclusion:Levosimendan combined with rhBNP can effectively alleviate myocardial injury in patients with acute myocardial infarction complicated by heart failure, improve myocardial function, is highly safe, and thereby deserves clinical application.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the role of receptor-interacting protein kinse3 (RIPK3)-mediated necroptosis in diabetic mellitus-caused abolition of cardioprotection induced by sevoflurane postconditioning in rats.Methods:Eighty rats with diabetes mellitus, aged 4-5 weeks, weighing 90-100 g, were divided into 4 groups ( n=20 each) using a random number table method: sham operation group (group Sham), myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) group (group I/R), sevoflurane postconditioning group (group SP) and sevoflurane postconditiong plus RIPK3 inhibitor GSK-872 group (group GSK). Myocardial I/R was induced by 40 min occlusion of the left anterior descending branch of the coronary artery followed by 120 min reperfusion.In group SP, 2.4% sevoflurane was inhaled for 15 min at the beginning of reperfusion.In group GSK, GSK-872 3.3 mg/kg (dissolved in normal saline) was intraperitoneally injected at 24 and 2 h before surgery, and the other treatments were similar to those previously described in group SP.After 120 min of reperfusion, blood samples from the abdominal aorta were collected for determination of concentrations of serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB). Myocardial tissues were taken for determination of percentage of myocardial infarct size (by TTC staining) and expression of RIPK3, phospho-Ca 2+ -calmodulin-dependent protein kinase Ⅱ (p-CaMKⅡ) and phospho-mixed lineage kinase domain-like protein (p-MLKL) (by Western blot), and the ultrastructure of myocardium was observed by transmission electron microscopy. Results:Compared with group Sham, the serum LDH and CK-MB concentrations and percentage of myocardial infarct size were significantly increased, the expression of RIPK3, p-MLKL and p-CaMKⅡ in myocardial tissues was up-regulated ( P<0.05), and the damage to cardiomyocytes was severe in group I/R.Compared with group I/R, no significant change was found in the parameters mentioned above in group SP ( P>0.05). Compared with group SP, the serum LDH and CK-MB concentrations and percentage of myocardial infarct size were significantly decreased, the expression of RIPK3, p-MLKL and p-CaMKⅡ in myocardial tissues was down-regulated ( P<0.05), and the damage to cardiomyocytes was reduced in group GSK. Conclusion:The mechanism of diabetic mellitus-caused abolition of cardioprotection induced by sevoflurane postconditioning is related to excessive activation of RIPK3-mediated necroptosis in rats.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To evaluate the relationship between the mitochondrial mechanism of diabetic mellitus-caused abolition of cardioprotection induced by ischemia postconditioning (IPO) and succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) in rats.Methods:Thirty-six SPF male non-diabetic Sprague-Dawley rats, aged 16-20 weeks, weighing about 300 g, were divided into 3 groups ( n=12 each) using a random number table method: sham operation group (ND+ Sham group), ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) group (ND+ I/R group) and IPO group (ND+ IPO group). Seventy-two rats with diabetes mellitus were divided into 6 groups ( n=12 each) using a random number table method: sham operation group (DM+ Sham group), I/R group (DM+ I/R group), DM+ IPO group, sham operation+ dimethyl malonate group (group DM+ Sham+ Dme), I/R+ dimethyl malonate group (group DM+ I/R + Dme) and IPO+ dimethyl malonate group (group DM+ IPO+ Dme). The model of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) was established, and the model of total I/R injury was induced by ligating the ascending aorta for 30 min followed by 60 min of reperfusion.The animals underwent 3 cycles of 30-s reperfusion followed by 30-s ischemia starting from the onset of reperfusion in each IPO group.In each Dme group, dimethyl malonate was infused through the tail vein at a rate of 4 mg· kg -1·min -1 for 40 min starting from the beginning of CPB.At the end of reperfusion, the myocardial tissues were taken for measurement of mitochondrial respiratory control ratio (RCR) (by the Lufthansa electrode method), mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) (by the JC-1 method) and the opening of mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) (by absorptiometry) and for determination of the activity of reactive oxygen species (ROS) (with the fluorescent probe), succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) (using spectrophotometric method) and the contents of succinic acid and fumarate. Results:Compared with ND+ Sham group, the activities of SDH and ROS, opening of mPTP and content of fumarate were significantly increased, and MMP, RCR and succinic acid content were decreased in ND+ I/R ( P<0.05). Compared with group ND+ I/R, the activities of SDH and ROS, opening of mPTP and content of fumarate were significantly decreased, and MMP, RCR and succinic acid content were increased in ND+ IPO ( P<0.05). Compared with group DM+ Sham, the activities of SDH and ROS, opening of mPTP and content of fumarate were significantly increased, and MMP, RCR and succinic acid content were decreased in group DM+ I/R ( P<0.05). Compared with group DM+ I/R, no significant change was found in the parameters mentioned above in group DM+ IPO ( P>0.05). Compared with group DM+ IPO, the activities of SDH and ROS, opening of mPTP and content of fumarate were significantly decreased, and MMP, RCR and succinic acid content were increased in group DM+ IPO+ Dme ( P<0.05). Compared with group DM+ I/R+ Dme, the activities of SDH and ROS, opening of mPTP and content of fumarate were significantly decreased, and MMP, RCR and succinic acid content were increased in group DM+ IPO+ Dme ( P<0.05). Conclusion:The mitochondrial mechanism of diabetic mellitus-caused abolition of cardioprotection induced by IPO may be related to the enhancement of SDH activity in rats.

Twelve non-diabetic rats were divided into 2 groups ( n=6 each) using a random number table method: non-diabetic sham operation group (NS group) and non-diabetic myocardial I/R group (NIR group). The rat myocardial I/R injury model was established by ligating the anterior descending branch of the left coronary artery for 30 min followed by 120 min reperfusion in anesthetized rats.Blood samples were collected from the right internal carotid artery at 120 min of reperfusion for determination of the serum creatinine (Cr), urea nitrogen (BUN) and neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) concentrations (by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay). Renal tissues were obtained for examination of the pathological changes (by HE staining method) and for determination of the expression of HIF-1α and SLC7A11 (by Western blot). The damage to the renal tubules was scored. Results:Compared with group NS, the concentrations of serum Cr, BUN and NGAL and renal tubular damage score were significantly increased in group DS and group NIR, the expression of HIF-1α and SLC7A11 was down-regulated in group DS, and the expression of HIF-1α and SLC7A11 was up-regulated in group NIR ( P<0.05). Compared with group DS, the concentrations of serum Cr, BUN and NGAL and renal tubular damage score were significantly increased, and the expression of HIF-1α and SLC7A11 was up-regulated in group DIR ( P<0.05). Compared with group NIR, the concentrations of serum Cr, BUN and NGAL and renal tubular damage score were significantly increased, and the expression of HIF-1α and SLC7A11 was down-regulated in group DIR ( P<0.05). Compared with group DIR, the concentrations of serum Cr, BUN and NGAL and renal tubular damage score were significantly decreased, and the expression of HIF-1α and SLC7A11 was up-regulated in group DIR+ DMOG ( P<0.05). Conclusion:HIF-1α is involved in the renal injury induced by myocardial I/R, which is related to regulation of the expression of SLC7A11 in rats.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) pretreatment on the protein expression of c-fos in fastigial nucleus (FN) and lateral hypothalamus area (LHA) in rats with acute myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury (MIRI), and to explore the role and mechanism of FN and LHA in EA at the Heart Meridian fighting against acute MIRI reaction. Methods: Seventy Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into a sham operation group, a model group, an EA-Heart Meridian group and an EA-Lung Meridian group, with 14 rats in each group; an LHA lesion plus EA-Heart Meridian group (LHA+EA-Heart Meridian group) and a FN lesion plus EA-Heart Meridian group (FN+EA-Heart Meridian group), with 7 rats in each group. Except the sham operation group, the left anterior descending branch of coronary artery was ligated to establish acute MIRI rat models in the other 5 groups. In the three groups with EA-Heart Meridian treatment, Shenmen (HT 7) and Tongli (HT 5) were selected; Taiyuan (LU 9) and Lieque (LU 7) were selected in the EA-Lung Meridian group. All the EA groups received EA stimulation prior to modeling, with 1 mA in current intensity and 2 Hz in frequency, 20 min each time, once a day for a total of 7 d. The sham operation group and the model group did not receive EA stimulation. The electrocardiogram was observed in the rats to analyze the ST-segment deviation and cardiac arrhythmia score. The expression of c-fos protein in FN and LHA was detected by immunohistochemistry method. Results: Compared with the sham operation group, the ST-segment deviation, cardiac arrhythmia score and the expression of c-fos protein in the FN and LHA increased significantly in the model group (all P<0.05). Compared with the model group, the ST-segment deviation, cardiac arrhythmia score and the expression of c-fos protein in FN and LHA decreased significantly in the EA-Heart Meridian group (all P<0.05). Compared with the EA-Heart Meridian group, the ST-segment deviation and cardiac arrhythmia score increased significantly in the EA-Lung Meridian group, LHA+EA-Heart Meridian group and FN+EA-Heart Meridian group (all P<0.05); the expression of c-fos in FN increased significantly in the EA-Lung Meridian group and LHA+EA-Heart Meridian group (both P<0.05); the expression of c-fos in LHA increased significantly in the EA-Lung Meridian group and FN+EA-Heart Meridian group (both P<0.05). Conclusion: FN and LHA are involved in the mechanism of EA at Heart Meridian to improve the acute MIRI reactions, and the cerebellum may participate in the improvement of cardiac function by EA through the cerebellum-hypothalamus projection.

Methods: Wistar rats were assigned to 2 groups: Control (C: receiving standard chow; n = 9) and Açaí (A: receiving standard chow supplemented with 5% açaí; n = 10). After six weeks, the animals were subjected to the global ischemia-reperfusion protocol and an isolated heart study to evaluate left ventricular function. Level of significance adopted: 5%. Results: There was no difference between the groups in initial body weight, final body weight and daily feed intake. Group A presented lower lipid hydroperoxide myocardial concentration and higher catalase activity, superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase than group C. We also observed increased myocardial activity of b-hydroxyacyl coenzyme-A dehydrogenase, pyruvate dehydrogenase, citrate synthase, complex I, complex II and ATP synthase in the A group as well as lower activity of the lactate dehydrogenase and phosphofructokinase enzymes. The systolic function was similar between the groups, and the A group presented poorer diastolic function than the C group. We did not observe any difference between the groups in relation to myocardial infarction area, total and phosphorylated NF-kB, total and acetylated FOXO1, SIRT1 and Nrf-2 protein expression. Conclusion: despite improving energy metabolism and attenuating oxidative stress, açai supplementation did not decrease the infarcted area or improve left ventricular function in the global ischemia-reperfusion model.


Resumo Fundamento: Euterpe oleracea Mart. (açaí) é uma fruta com alta capacidade antioxidante e pode ser uma estratégia adjuvante para atenuar a lesão de isquemia-reperfusão. Objetivo: Avaliar a influência do açaí no modelo global de isquemia-reperfusão em ratos. Metodologia: Ratos Wistar foram divididos em 2 grupos: Controle (C: recebendo ração padrão; n = 9) e Açaí (A: recebendo ração padrão suplementada com 5% de açaí; n = 10). Após seis semanas, os animais foram submetidos ao protocolo global de isquemia-reperfusão e a estudo do coração isolado para avaliar a função ventricular esquerda. Nível de significância adotado: 5%. Resultados: Não houve diferença entre os grupos quanto ao peso corporal inicial e final, e a ingestão diária de ração. O grupo A apresentou menor concentração miocárdica de hidroperóxido lipídico e maior atividade de catalase, superóxido dismutase e glutationa peroxidase do que o grupo C. Também observamos aumento da atividade miocárdica da b-hidroxiacil coenzima-A desidrogenase, piruvato desidrogenase, citrato sintase, complexo I, complexo II e ATP sintase no grupo A, bem como menor atividade das enzimas lactato desidrogenase e fosfofructoquinase. A função sistólica foi semelhante entre os grupos, e o grupo A apresentou função diastólica pior que C. Não foram observadas diferenças entre os grupos em relação à área de infarto do miocárdio, e expressão proteica de NF-kB total e fosforilado, e das proteínas FOXO1, SIRT1 e Nrf-2. Conclusão: apesar de melhorar o metabolismo energético e atenuar o estresse oxidativo, a suplementação de açaí não diminuiu a área infartada nem melhorou a função ventricular esquerda no modelo global de isquemia-reperfusão.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Purpose: To investigate the protective effect of L-carnitine on myocardial injury in rats with heatstroke. Methods: orty-eight rats were randomly divided into control, heatstroke and 25, 50 and 100 mg/kg L-carnitine groups. The last three groups were treated with 25, 50 and 100 mg/kg L-carnitine, respectively, for seven successive days. Then, except for the control group, the other four groups were transferred into the environment with ambient temperature of (39.5 ± 0.4 °C) and relative humidity of (13.5 ± 2.1%) for 2 h. The core temperature (Tc), mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR) and serum and myocardial indexes were detected. Results: Compared with the heatstroke group, in the 100 mg/kg L-carnitine group, the Tc was significantly decreased, the MAP and HR were significantly increased, the serum creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase, tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 1β levels were significantly decreased, the myocardial superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase levels were significantly increased, the myocardial malondialdehyde level was significantly decreased and the cardiomyocyte apoptosis index and myocardial caspase-3 protein expression level were remarkably decreased (p < 0.05). Conclusions: The L-carnitine pretreatment can alleviate the myocardial injury in heatstroke rats through reducing the inflammatory response, oxidative stress and cardiomyocyte apoptosis.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Purpose To evaluate whether the attenuation of mitochondrial Ca2+ overload produced by pharmacological blockade of mitochondrial Ca2+ uniporter (MCU) protects the myocardium against injuries caused by cardiac ischemia and reperfusion (CIR). Methods CIR was induced in adult male Wistar rats (300-350 g) by occlusion of the left anterior descendent coronary artery (10 min), followed by reperfusion (120 min). Rats were treated with different doses of MCU blocker ruthenium red (RuR), administered 5 min before ischemia or reperfusion. Results In untreated rats, the incidences of ventricular arrhythmias (VA), atrioventricular block (AVB) and the lethality (LET) induced by CIR were 85%, 79% and 70%, respectively. In rats treated with RuR before ischemia, the incidences of VA, AVB and LET were significantly reduced to 62%, 25% and 25%, respectively. In rats treated with RuR after ischemia, the incidences of VA, AVB and LET were significantly reduced to 50%, 25% and 25%, respectively. Conclusion The significant reduction of the incidence of CIR-induced VA, AVB and LET produced by the treatment with RuR indicates that the attenuation of mitochondrial Ca2+ overload produced by pharmacological blockade of MCU can protect the myocardium against injuries caused by CIR.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective: To study the response of myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury (MI/RI) in rats to simulated geomagnetic activity. Methods: In a simulated strong geomagnetic outbreak, the MI/RI rat models were radiated, and their area of myocardial infarction, hemodynamic parameters, creatine kinase (CK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), melatonin, and troponin I values were measured after a 24-hour intervention. Results: Our analysis indicates that the concentrations of troponin I in the geomagnetic shielding+operation group were lower than in the radiation+operation group (P<0.05), the concentrations of melatonin in the shielding+operation group and normal+operation group were higher than in the radiation + operation group (P<0.01), and the concentrations of CK in the shielding + operation group were lower than in the radiation + operation group and normal + operation group (P<0.05). Left ventricular developed pressure (LVDP) and ± dP/dtmax in the radiation+operation group were lower than in the shielding + operation group and normal+operation group (P<0.01). Left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LEVDP) in the shielding + operation group was higher than in the normal + operation group (P<0.05). There was no significant difference in area of myocardial infarction and LDH between the shielding + operation group and the radiation + operation group. Conclusion: Our data suggest that geomagnetic activity is important in regulating myocardial reperfusion injury. The geomagnetic shielding has a protective effect on myocardial injury, and the geomagnetic radiation is a risk factor for aggravating the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.

ABSTRACT

Abstract Purpose: Myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (Ml/R) injury is a leading cause of damage in cardiac tissues, with high rates of mortality and disability. Biochanin A (BCA) is a main constituent of Trifolium pratense L. This study was intended to explore the effect of BCA on Ml/R injury and explore the potential mechanism. Methods: In vivo MI/R injury was established by transient coronary ligation in Sprague-Dawley rats. Triphenyltetrazolium chloride staining (TTC) was used to measure myocardial infarct size. ELISA assay was employed to evaluate the levels of myocardial enzyme and inflammatory cytokines. Western blot assay was conducted to detect related protein levels in myocardial tissues. Results: BCA significantly ameliorated myocardial infarction area, reduced the release of myocardial enzyme levels including aspartate transaminase (AST), creatine kinase (CK-MB) and lactic dehydrogenase (LDH). It also decreased the production of inflammatory cytokines (IL-1β, IL-18, IL-6 and TNF-α) in serum of Ml/R rats. Further mechanism studies demonstrated that BCA inhibited inflammatory reaction through blocking TLR4/NF-kB/NLRP3 signaling pathway. Conclusion: The present study is the first evidence demonstrating that BCA attenuated Ml/R injury through suppressing TLR4/NF-kB/NLRP3 signaling pathway-mediated anti-inflammation pathway.

ABSTRACT

Objective@#To evaluate the role of morphine preconditioning on necroptosis during myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in the rats with heart failure.@*Methods@#Clean-grade adult male Sprague-Dawley rats, weighing 200-230 g, were injected with 2 mg/kg doxorubicin via the tail vein once a week for 6 consecutive weeks to establish the chronic heart failure model.Thirty rats with chronic heart failure at the end of 8th week were divided into 3 groups (n=10 each) using a random number table method: sham operation group (group S), I/R group and morphine preconditioning group (group MPC). Myocardial I/R was induced by occlusion of anterior descending branch of left coronary artery for 30 min followed by 120 min reperfusion in each group except group S. In group MPC, the rats were subjected to 3 cycles of 5-min infusion of 0.1 mg/kg morphine via the femoral vein at 5 min intervals before ischemia.The animals were sacrificed at the end of reperfusion, and the myocardial specimens were obtained for determination of the area at risk (AAR), infarct size (IS), expression of Fas mRNA (by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction) and expression of Fas, receptor-interacting protein 1 (RIP1) and RIP3 (by Western blot). The IS/AAR ratio was calculated.@*Results@#Compared with group S, the IS and IS/AAR ratio were significantly increased at the end of reperfusion, and the expression of Fas protein and mRNA, RIP1 and RIP3 was up-regulated in group I/R (P<0.05). Compared with group I/R, the IS and IS/AAR ratio were significantly decreased at the end of reperfusion, and the expression of Fas protein and mRNA, RIP1 and RIP3 was down-regulated in group MPC (P<0.05).@*Conclusion@#The mechanism by which morphine preconditioning reduces myocardial I/R injury is related to inhibiting necroptosis in the rats with heart failure.

ABSTRACT

Objective To evaluate the role of phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase/protein kinase B/nucle-ar factor erythroid 2-related factor 2(PI3K/Akt/Nrf2)signaling pathway in resveratrol preconditioning-in-duced cardioprotection in diabetic rats.Methods Clean-grade healthy male Sprague-Dawley rats,aged 2-3 months,weighing 240-280 g,were used in the study.The diabetes model was established by intraper-itoneal injection of streptozotocin 30 mg/kg once a day for 7 consecutive days.Forty diabetic rats were se-lected and divided into 4 groups(n=10 each)according to the random number table method: sham opera-tion group(S group),myocardial ischemia-reperfusion(I/R)group(I/R group),resveratrol plus myo-cardial I/R group(Res+I/R group),and PI3K inhibitor LY294002 plus resveratrol plus myocardial I/R group(LY+Res+I/R group).The myocardial I/R injury model was established by ligating the left anterior descending coronary artery for 30 min followed by 120-min reperfusion in anesthetized rats.Resveratrol 20 mg/kg was intraperitoneally injected once a day for 7 consecutive days at one week before surgery in Res+I/R and LY+Res+I/R groups.LY294002 1.5 mg/kg was intraperitoneally injected at 30 min before operation in LY+Res+I/R group.After 120 min of reperfusion,blood samples were taken for determination of serum creatine kinase-MB(CK-MB)and lactic dehydrogenase(LDH)concentrations(by enzyme-linked immu-nosorbent assay),and myocardial tissues at the ischemic area were obtained for determination of superoxide dismutase(SOD),glutathione(GSH)and malondialdehyde(MDA)levels(by enzyme-linked immu-nosorbent assay)and expression of Akt,phosphorylated Akt(p-Akt),glycogen synthase kinase 3β(GSK3β),phosphorylated GSK3β(p-GSK3β)and Nrf2(by Western blot).Results Compared with group S,serum CK-MB and LDH concentrations were significantly increased,the SOD and GSH levels were decreased,the MDA level was increased,and the expression of p-Akt and p-GSK3β was down-regu-lated in I/R group(P<0.05).Compared with I/R group,serum CK-MB and LDH concentrations were sig-nificantly decreased,the SOD and GSH levels were increased,the MDA level was decreased,and the ex-pression of p-Akt,p-GSK3β and Nrf2 was up-regulated in Res+I/R group(P<0.05).Compared with Res+I/R group,serum CK-MB and LDH concentrations were significantly increased,the SOD and GSH levels were decreased,the MDA level was increased,and the expression of p-Akt,p-GSK3β and Nrf2 was down-regulated in LY+Res+I/R group(P<0.05).Conclusion The mechanism of resveratrol precondi-tioning-induced cardioprotection is related to activating PI3K/Akt/Nrf2 signaling pathway and inhibiting oxi-dative stress responses in diabetic rats.
