ABSTRACT Thein vitrointerference of some of most important nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with the respiration of rat kidney (renal cortex) mitochondria and ATP synthesis was evaluated. Acetylsalicylic acid, diclofenac sodium, mefenamic acid, and piroxicam both uncoupled and inhibited oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria energized with glutamate plus malate or with succinate, while dipyrone only uncoupled and paracetamol only inhibited it. The drug concentrations affecting mitochondrial respiration were in the low to middle micromolar range for diclofenac, mefenamic acid, and piroxicam, and in the low millimolar range for acetylsalicylic acid, dipyrone, and paracetamol. The pattern of inhibition, except for the paracetamol, was similar to that expressed by the respiratory chain inhibitors. NSAIDs also inhibited the rate of ATP synthesis in mitochondria energized with glutamate plus malate, as well as the phosphorylation potential of mitochondria. The IC50values for rate of ATP synthesis, using 2 mMADP, were about 0.1 mMfor diclofenac sodium and mefenamic acid, 0.7 mMfor piroxicam, and in the range of 5–8 mMfor acetylsalicylic acid, dipyrone, and paracetamol. The potential for renal energetic cytotoxicity of NSAIDs is discussed considering their ability to interact with the oxidative phosphorylation in rat renal cortex mitochondria. A comparison is made with the interference of salicylate, the main metabolite of acetylsalicylic acid, and a classical uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation.

    ABSTRACT: Non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most frequently prescribed drugs currently available. The most frequently reported serious side effects associated with NSAIDs are gastric mucosal ulceration and gastric hemorrhage. Presently, these side effects are only detectable by endoscopy, however, and no biomarkers have yet been identified. The ability to identify serum biomarkers would likely improve the safety of NSAID use. In this study we performed capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry (CE-MS)-based metabolomic profiling in stomach and serum from rats administered NSAIDs. Results showed drug-induced decreases in levels of citrate, cis-aconitate, succinate, 3-hydroxy butanoic acid, o-acetyl carnitine, proline, and hydroxyproline. We consider that these changes are due to NSAID-induced depression of mitochondrial function and activation of collagenase by lesions in the stomach. In addition, four of these changes in metabolite levels in the stomach were significantly correlated with changes in the serum. While further study is need to clarify the mechanism of change in these biomarkers, limitation of indications, and extrapolation to humans, these new serum biomarker candidates of gastric injury may be useful in the monitoring of NSAID-induced tissue damage.

    ABSTRACT: Exercise, eccentric contractions, acute trauma, and disease are all causal mechanisms of skeletal muscle injury. After skeletal muscle is injured, it undergoes sequential phases of degeneration, inflammation, regeneration and fibrosis. Events that occur in response to inflammation trigger regenerative processes. However, since inflammation causes pain, decreases skeletal muscle function, has a negative effect on performance, and contributes to fibrosis which is one of the leading causes of delayed regeneration, the general practice has been to reduce inflammation. The problem with this approach is that preventing inflammation may hinder recovery. Current treatment options for inflammation are not necessarily effective and, in some cases, they may be unsafe. This review focuses on the question of whether the most beneficial course of treatment should be to block inflammation or if it is sensible to allow inflammatory processes to progress naturally. If blocking inflammation is perceived as a beneficial approach, it is not yet known at what time point during the inflammatory response it is most sensible to interfere. To address these issues, this review evaluates the effects of various anti-inflammatory agents on recovery processes in response to exercise-induced, traumatic, and disease-associated models of skeletal muscle injury. A collective analysis such as this should lay the foundation for future work that systematically manipulates the inflammatory response to most effectively promote regeneration and functional recovery in injured skeletal muscle, while reducing the negative effects of inflammatory processes such as pain and fibrosis.

    ABSTRACT: Gastric mucosal ulceration and gastric hemorrhage are frequently associated with treatment by non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); however, no convenient biomarker-based diagnostic methods for these adverse reactions are currently available, requiring the use of endoscopic evaluation. We recently reported five biomarker candidates in serum which predict gastric injury induced by NSAIDs in rats, but were unable to clarify the mechanism of change in the levels of these biomarker candidates. In this study, we performed capillary electrophoresis–mass spectrometry-based metabolomic profiling in stomach and serum from rats in which gastric ulcer was induced by aspirin and prevented by co-administration of omeprazole and famotidine. Results showed drug-induced decreases in the levels of citrate, cis-aconitate, succinate, 3-hydroxy butanoic acid, and O-acetyl carnitine in all animals administered aspirin. In contrast, aspirin-induced decreases in the level of 4-hydroxyproline were suppressed by co-administration of omeprazole and famotidine. We consider that these changes were due to the prevention of gastric ulcer and decrease in the amount of collagen in stomach tissue by omeprazole and famotidine, without prevention of the NSAID-induced depression of mitochondrial function. In addition, the decreases in 4-hydroxyproline in the stomach was also detectable as changes in the serum. While further study is needed to clarify limitations of indications and extrapolation to humans, this new serum biomarker candidate of gastric injury may be useful in the monitoring of NSAID-induced tissue damage.
