Remote ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC) is well known to protect the myocardium against ischaemia/reperfusion injury (IRI). Exosomes are small extracellular vesicles that have become the key mediators of intercellular communication. Various studies have confirmed that circulating exosomes mediate RIPC. However, the underlying mechanisms for RIPC-induced exosome-mediated cardioprotection remain elusive. In our study, we found that the expression level of miR-24 was higher in exosomes derived from the plasma of rats subjected to RIPC than in exosomes derived from the plasma of control rats in vivo...

Ischaemic heart diseases are one of the major causes of death in the world. In most patients, ischaemic heart disease is coincident with other risk factors such as diabetes. Patients with diabetes are more prone to cardiac ischaemic dysfunctions including ischaemia-reperfusion injury. Ischaemic preconditioning, postconditioning and remote conditionings are reliable interventions to protect the myocardium against ischaemia-reperfusion injuries through activating various signaling pathways and intracellular mediators...

Objective The administration of preconditioned plasma collected during the late phase of preconditioning has been shown to reduce myocardial infarct size. This study aimed to investigate if preconditioned plasma could attenuate ventricular arrhythmias in a rat model in vivo. Methods Eighty rats were randomized to eight groups (10 rats/group). Two groups provided preconditioned or non-preconditioned plasma 48 h after transient limb ischaemia or the control protocol. Six groups of ischaemia-reperfusion (IR) rats received normal saline, non-preconditioned plasma, or preconditioned plasma, respectively, 1 h (groups A1, A2, A3) or 24 h (groups B1, B2, B3) before undergoing myocardial IR...

BACKGROUND: Remote ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC) is a cardioprotective intervention invoking intermittent periods of ischaemia in a tissue or organ remote from the heart. The mechanisms of this effect are incompletely understood. We hypothesised that RIPC might enhance coronary vasodilatation by an endothelium-dependent mechanism. METHODS: We performed a prospective, randomised, sham-controlled, blinded clinical trial. Patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing elective invasive management were prospectively enrolled, and randomised to RIPC or sham (1:1) prior to angiography...

Studies have demonstrated that thyroid hormone (T3) can precondition the heart against ischaemic injury and improve post-ischaemic recovery. This study investigated whether the AT2 receptor (AT2R) is involved in cardioprotection and the potential molecular mechanism responsible for this effect. Hyperthyroidism was induced in male wild-type (WT) and AT2R knockout (KO) mice by administering daily intraperitoneal injections of T3 (7 μg/100 g body weight) for 14 days. The mouse hearts were harvested and perfused with a Krebs-Henseleit solution at a constant flow in a Langendorff set-up...

Ischaemic insult in the skin flaps is a major problem in reconstructive surgery particularly in patients with diabetes mellitus. Here, we sought to investigate the effectiveness of ischaemic preconditioning (IP) on diabetic skin flaps in rat animal model. Hundred Wistar rats (90 streptozotocin treated animals and 10 nondiabetic controls) were used. Diabetes mellitus was confirmed by measuring glucose level in blood, HbA1c, and ketonuria. We used blood vessel clamping, hind limb tourniquet, and NO donors (Spermine/NO complex) to induce short-term ischaemia of tissues that will be excised for skin flaps...

The Reperfusion Injury Salvage Kinase (RISK) pathway is considered the main pro-survival kinase cascade mediating the ischaemic preconditioning (IPC) cardioprotective effect. To assess the role of PI3K-Akt, its negative regulator PTEN and other pro-survival proteins such as ERK and STAT3 in the context of IPC, C57BL/6 mouse hearts were retrogradely perfused in a Langendorff system and subjected to 4 cycles of 5 min. ischaemia and 5 min. reperfusion prior to 35 min. of global ischaemia and 120 min. of reperfusion...

OBJECTIVE: The present study was been designed to investigate the role and pharmacological potential of hedgehog in oestrogen-deficient rat heart. METHODS: Oestrogen deficiency was produced in female Wistar rats by the surgical removal of both ovaries and these animals were used four weeks later. Isolated rat heart was subjected to 30 min ischaemia followed by 120 min of reperfusion (I/R). The heart was subjected to pharmacological preconditioning with the hedgehog agonist purmorphamine (1μM) and GDC-0449, a hedgehog antagonist, in the last episode of reperfusion before I/R...

Background: Isoflurane preconditioning (IPC) induces cerebral ischaemic tolerance, but the mechanism remains poorly understood. The aim of this study was to determine changes in mitochondrial function in the brain after IPC, and whether the cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1R) could be involved in the mechanism of mitochondrial protection mediated by IPC. Methods: Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were pretreated with isoflurane 2% for 1 h day -1 , for 5 days consecutively, and then subjected to 120 min right middle cerebral artery occlusion...

OBJECTIVES: Poor cell survival severely limits the beneficial effect of adipose-derived stem cell (ADSC)-based therapy for disease treatment and tissue regeneration, which might be caused by the attenuated level of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) in these cells after having been cultured in 21% ambient oxygen in vitro for weeks. In this study, we explored the role of pre-incubation in dimethyloxalylglycine (DMOG, HIF-1 activator) in the survivability of human ADSCs in a simulated ischaemic microenvironment in vitro and in vivo...

Liver Ischaemia Reperfusion (IR) injury is a major cause of post-operative liver dysfunction, morbidity and mortality following liver resection surgery and transplantation. There are no proven therapies for IR injury in clinical practice and new approaches are required. Ischaemic Preconditioning (IPC) can be applied in both a direct and remote fashion and has been shown to ameliorate IR injury in small animal models. Its translation into clinical practice has been difficult, primarily by a lack of knowledge regarding the dominant protective mechanisms that it employs...

Angiotensin II-preconditioning (APC) has been shown to reproduce the cardioprotective effects of ischaemic preconditioning (IPC), however, the molecular mechanisms mediating the effects of APC remain unknown. In this study, Langendorff-perfused rat hearts were subjected to IPC, APC or both (IPC/APC) followed by ischaemia-reperfusion (IR), to determine translocation of PKCε, PKCδ, Akt, Erk1/2, JNK, p38 MAPK and GSK-3β to mitochondria as an indicator of activation of the protein kinases. In agreement with previous observations, IPC, APC and IPC/APC increased the recovery of left ventricular developed pressure (LVDP), reduced infarct size (IS) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release, compared to controls...

Ischaemic preconditioning (IPC) provides myocardial resistance to ischaemia/reperfusion (I/R) injuries. The protection afforded by IPC is not limited to the target tissue but extends to remote tissues, suggesting a mechanism mediated by humoral factors. The aim of the present study was to identify the humoral factors that are responsible for the cardioprotection induced by the coronary effluent transferred from IPC to naïve hearts. Isolated rat hearts were submitted to IPC (three cycles of 5 min I/R) before 30-min global ischaemia and 60-min reperfusion...

INTRODUCTION: Ischaemic preconditioning (IPC) may enhance endurance performance. No previous study has directly compared distinct IPC protocols for optimal benefit. The aim of this study was to determine whether a specific IPC protocol (i.e. number of cycles, amount of muscle tissue, and local vs remote occlusion) elicits greater performance outcome. METHODS: Twelve cyclists performed five different IPC protocols 30-min prior to a blinded 375 kJ cycling time trial (TT) in a laboratory...

BACKGROUND: Ischaemia Reperfusion (IR) injury is a major cause of morbidity, mortality and graft loss following Orthotopic Liver Transplantation (OLT). Utilising marginal grafts, which are more susceptible to IR injury, makes this a key research goal. Remote Ischaemic Preconditioning (RIPC) has been shown to ameliorate hepatic IR injury in experimental models. Whether RIPC can reduce IR injury in human liver transplant recipients is unknown. METHODS: Forty patients undergoing liver transplantation were randomized to RIPC or a sham...

Ischaemic preconditioning (IPC) phenomenon has been known for thirty years. During that time several studies showed that IPC provided by brief ischaemic and reperfusion episodes prior to longer ischaemia can bestow a protective effect to both preconditioned and also remote organs. IPC affecting remote organs is called remote ischaemic preconditioning. Initially, most IPC studies were focused on enhancing myocardial resistance to subsequent ischaemia and reperfusion injury. However, preconditioning was found to be a universal phenomenon and was observed in various organs and tissues including the heart, liver, brain, retina, kidney, skeletal muscles and intestine...
