    ABSTRACT: Deferoxamine mesylate is known to ameliorate tissue ischemia-reperfusion injury. This study was designed to explore the impact of deferoxamine mesylate preconditioning (DMP) on pancreatic tissue and its possible effects during orthotopic liver autotransplantation. A modified orthotopic liver autotransplantation model was used to simulate pancreatic ischemia-reperfusion injury. Sprague-Dawley rats (0.25-0.30 kg) were randomly divided into normal control, autotransplantation (AT), systemic deferoxamine mesylate preconditioning (SDMP), and partial deferoxamine mesylate conditioning (PDMC) groups. The SDMP group was injected with deferoxamine mesylate (75-90 mg; 300 mg/kg), via the celiac artery at 24 and 48 hours before surgery. During surgery, the PDMC group underwent liver perfusion by means of deferoxamine mesylate solution (20 ml; 0.6 mmol/L) rather than Ringer's lactate solution, with no prior preconditioning. At 6, 24, and 48 hours after surgery, the rats were sacrificed to sample their pancreatic tissues for the expression of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) and malondialdehyde (MDA) content. The samples were subjected to blood chemistry analyses, light and transmission electron microscopic morphological studies, and quantitative measurement of HIF-1α expression. The serum levels of amylase, lipase, and MDA in SDMP and PDMC groups were significantly lower than those in the AT group at 6, 24, and 48 hours after orthotopic liver autotransplantation (P < .05). Light and electron microscopic analyses showed much more severe pancreatic injury in the autotransplantation than in the SDMP and PDMC groups. The HIF-1α expression was increased in the SDMP and PDMC groups more than in the autotransplantation group (P < .05). Deferoxamine mesylate preconditioning protected pancreatic tissue in orthotopic liver autotransplantation in rats. Inhibition of oxidative toxic reactions and up-regulated expression of HIF-1α protein are possible mechanisms.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the effect on intrahepatic cholangiocytes mediated by hypoxic preconditioning (HP) after liver transplantation and the role of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). This experiment was based on a model of rat orthotopic liver autotransplantation. Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 3 groups: normal control, autotransplantation (AT), and HP. The HP group was subjected to 8% oxygen atmosphere for 90 minutes before surgery. At 6, 12, 24, and 48 hours after autotransplantation, the rats were killed for testing .Serum total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, and alkaline phosphatase concentrations were determined. The microstructure of cholangiocytes and the ultramicrostructure of cholangioles were determined. Immunohistochemistry was used to detect the expression of VEGF and the proliferation rate of cholangiocytes. Total bilirubin, direct bilirubin, and alkaline phosphatase concentrations in the AT group increased considerably more than in the HP group during the entire interval (P < .05). Light microscopy demonstrated that the microstructure of cholangiocytes in the AT group was damaged more seriously than in the HP group. At transmission electron microscopy, the ultramicrostructure of cholangioles was changed more obviously than in the HP group. The expression of VEGF on cholangiocytes and the proliferation rate of cholangiocytes were higher in the HP group than in the AT group over the entire experiment (P < .05). Hypoxic preconditioning has a protective effect on cholangiocytes after liver autotransplantation. The mechanism may be related to HP-induced overexpression of VEGF on cholangiocytes.
