Hemorheological and metabolic consequences of renal ischemia-reperfusion and their modulation by N,N-dimethyl-tryptamine on a rat model

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Micro-rheological relations of renal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) have not been completely elucidated yet. Concerning anti-inflammatory agents, it is supposed that sigma-1 receptor agonist N,N-dimethyl-tryptamin (DMT) can be useful to reduce I/R injury.

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the micro-rheological and metabolic parameters, and the effects of DMT in renal I/R in rats.

METHODS:

In anesthetized rats from median laparotomy both kidneys were exposed. In Control group (n = 6) no other intervention happened. In I/R group (n = 10) the right renal vessels were ligated and after 60 minutes the organ was removed. The left renal vessels were clamped for 60 minutes followed by 120-minute reperfusion. In I/R+DMT group (n = 10) DMT was administered 15 minutes before the ischemia. Blood samples were taken before/after ischemia and during the reperfusion for testing hematological, metabolic parameters, erythrocyte deformability and aggregation.

RESULTS:

Lactate concentration significantly increased and accompanied with decreased blood pH. Enhanced erythrocyte aggregation and impaired deformability were observed from the 30th minute of reperfusion. In I/R+DMT group we found diminished changes compared to the I/R group (lactate, pH, electrolytes, red blood cell deformability and aggregation).

CONCLUSIONS:

Metabolic and micro-rheological parameters impair during renal I/R. DMT could reduce but not completely prevent the changes in this rat model.
