ABSTRACT
Objective To investigate the effects of different concentrations of isoflurane on the caspase-3 expression in the hippocampus and S100β level of plasma in fetal rats. Methods 18 pregnant rats at gestational day 21 were divided into control group, 1. 3% isoflurane group,3% isoflurane group. Rats in the control group spontaneously breathed 100% oxygen for 1 h. Rats in the treatment groups breathed 1.3% or 3% isoflurane in 100% oxygen through an endotracheal tube, with mechanical ventilation for 1 h. Rat pups were delivered by cesarean section 6 h after treatment, and fetal blood was sampled from the left ventricle of each fetal heart and evaluated for S100β. Fetal brains were then evaluated for apoptosis, using caspase-3 immunohistochemistry in the CA1 region of the hippocampus. Results Compared to the control group ((1. 48 ± 0. 08) μg/L) and the 1. 3% isoflurane group( (1.53 ±0. 12)μg/L) ,the 3% isoflurane group showed significantly higher level of S100β( (3. 12 ±0. 15) μg/L, P<0.05) . There was no differences in densities of caspase-3-positive cells between the control ((33 ±4) cell/mm ) and 1.3% isoflurane groups((31 ±5)cell/mm2). Compared to 1.3% isoflurane,isoflurane at a concentration of 3%((75 ± 7) cell/mm2, P<0.05) for lh increased neurodegeneration in the hippocampal CA1 area in the developing brain of fetal rats. Conclusion Isoflurane can dose-dependently induce brain damage. Isoflurane at a concentration of 3% for lh can induce apoptosis in the hippocampal CA1 area and increase S100β levels of fetal rats.
