ABSTRACT In a cross-sectional study, oxidative stress in high vascular disease risk groups, ESRD (end-stage renal disease) and Type I diabetes, was assessed by measuring plasma protein carbonyls and comparing antioxidant capacity of HDL (high-density lipoprotein) as pertaining to PON1 (paraoxonase 1) activity and in vitro removal of LPO (lipid peroxides). ESRD subjects on haemodialysis (n=22), Type I diabetes subjects (n=20) without vascular complications and healthy subjects (n=23) were compared. Plasma protein carbonyls were higher in ESRD patients [0.16 (0.050) nmol/mg of protein; P=0.001; value is mean (SD)] relative to subjects with Type I diabetes [0.099 (0.014) nmol/mg of protein] and healthy subjects [0.093 (0.014) nmol/mg of protein]. Plasma PON1 activity, with and without correction for HDL-cholesterol, was lower in diabetes but did not differ in ESRD compared with healthy subjects. Plasma PON1 activity, without correction for HDL, did not differ between the three groups. In ESRD, plasma PON1 activity and plasma protein carbonyl concentrations were inversely related (r=-0.50, P<0.05). In an in vitro assay, LPO removal by HDL in ESRD subjects was greater than HDL from healthy subjects (P<0.01), whereas HDL from patients with Type I diabetes was less effective (P<0.01). Efficacy of LPO removal was unrelated to plasma PON1 activity, in vitro glycation or mild oxidation, but was impaired by marked oxidation and glycoxidation. Protein carbonyl levels are increased in ESRD but not in complication-free Type I diabetes. HDL antioxidant function is increased in ESRD, perhaps a compensatory response to increased oxidative stress, but is lower in Type I diabetes. HDL dysfunction is related to glycoxidation rather than glycation or PON1 activity.

    ABSTRACT: Blood-retina barrier leakage in diabetes results in extravasation of plasma lipoproteins. Intra-retinal modified LDLs have been implicated in diabetic retinopathy (DR), but their effects on retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells and the added effects of extravasated modified HDLs are unknown. In human retinas from individuals with and without diabetes and DR, immunohistochemistry was used to detect ApoB, ApoA1 and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress markers. In cell culture, human RPE cells were treated with native LDL (N-LDL) or heavily-oxidised glycated LDL (HOG-LDL) with or without pretreatment with native HDL (N-HDL) or heavily-oxidised glycated HDL (HOG-HDL). Cell viability, oxidative stress, ER stress, apoptosis and autophagy were assessed by Cell Counting Kit-8 assay, dichlorofluorescein assay, western blotting, immunofluorescence and TUNEL assay. In separate experiments, RPE cells were treated with lipid oxidation products, 7-ketocholesterol (7-KC, 5-40 μmol/l) or 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE, 5-80 μmol/l), with or without pretreatment with N-HDL or HOG-HDL. ApoB, ApoA1 staining and RPE ER stress were increased in the presence of DR. HOG-LDL but not N-LDL significantly decreased RPE cell viability and increased reactive oxygen species generation, ER stress, apoptosis and autophagy. Similarly, 4-HNE and 7-KC decreased viability and induced ER stress. Pretreatment with N-HDL mitigated these effects, whereas HOG-HDL was less effective by most, but not all, measures. In DR, extravascular modified LDL may promote RPE injury through oxidative stress, ER stress, autophagy and apoptosis. N-HDL has protective effects, but HOG-HDL is less effective. Extravasation and modification of HDL may modulate the injurious effects of extravasated modified LDL on the retinal pigment epithelium.

    ABSTRACT: Chronic kidney disease is a risk factor for cardiovascular mortality. This study uncovers pieces of hematological and erythrocyte protein variability observed in end stage renal disease (ESRD) in relation to disease progression/duration and mortality. Using a variety of experimental approaches, erythropoietin/dialysis-treated patients were compared to healthy individuals and had been followed for 36months. During that period, half of the patients died from cardiovascular diseases. The high levels of uremic toxins in those patients were associated with damaged erythrocytes, bad tolerance and poor response to hemodialysis therapy. The postmortem study revealed significant variation in alkaline phosphatase, duration of dialysis, erythrocyte transformation and intracellular hemoglobin concentration compared to the survived patients. The erythrocyte proteins showed substantial remodeling characteristic of pathologic regulation of cell hydration and susceptibility to the dialysis-induced oxidation defects. According to the following-up study, duration of hemodialysis was associated with a trend towards increased intracellular hemoglobin concentration, membrane expression of glucose transporter-1 and stomatin as well as lower levels of circulating stomatocytes. The uremic indexes variation in long survived patients is accurately reflected in plasma and erythrocyte oxidative stress modifications. The ESRD patients exhibit impressive compensatory responses to the chronic challenges of the uremic milieu. This study demonstrates novel blood modifications probably associated with the duration of erythropoietin/hemodialysis treatment, disease progression and cardiovascular mortality in end stage renal disease. The observed variability adds new pieces to the erythrocytes pathophysiology puzzle in end stage renal disease and suggests novel hematologic and proteomic factors for consideration in future large scale studies on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality candidate biomarkers in uremic patients.
