PAI-1-derived peptide EEIIMD prevents hypoxia/ischemia-induced aggravation of endothelin- and thromboxane-induced cerebrovasoconstriction

Neurocritical Care

Babies are frequently exposed to cerebral hypoxia and ischemia (H/I) during the perinatal period as a result of stroke, problems with delivery or post delivery respiratory management. The sole FDA approved treatment for acute stroke is tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA). Endogenous tPA is upregulated and potentiates impairment of pial artery dilation in response to hypotension after H/I in pigs. Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), a family of at least 3 kinases, ERK, p38 and JNK, is also upregulated after H/I, with ERK contributing to impaired vasodilation. This study examined the hypothesis that H/I aggravates the vascular response to two important procontractile mediators released during CNS ischemia, endothelin-1 (ET-1) and thromboxane, which is further enhanced by tPA and ERK MAPK. Cerebral hypoxia (pO(2) 35 mmHg for 10 min via inhalation of N(2)) followed immediately by ischemia (global intracranial pressure elevation for 20 min) was produced in chloralose anesthetized piglets equipped with a closed cranial window. H/I aggravated pial artery vasconstriction induced by ET-1 and the thromboxane mimetic U 46619. Potentiated vasoconstrictor responses were blocked by EEIIMD, an inhibitor of tPA's signaling and vascula...Continue Reading
