Hemadsorption During and After Cardiopulmonary Bypass to Modulate the Inflammatory Response

2019-11-14 17:39:51 | BioPortfolio


Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease, which increases the risk of death after cardiac surgery. High interleukin 6 (IL-6) blood levels is commonly observed in patients with CKD, and this is particularly high after cardiac surgery. High IL-6 levels are also associated with increased long-term mortality rate after cardiac surgery. To date, the use of ultrafiltration or endotoxin adsorption systems were not found to improve the clinical outcome, although able to reduce the inflammatory mediators concentrations. In the last years, a new extracorporeal hemadsorption filter (CytoSorb) has been developed for removal of inflammatory cytokines and it has been approved by the European Union. However, data lack about the impact on clinical outcome of the use of CytoSorb in patients with CKD undergoing cardiac surgery with cardio-pulmonary bypass (CPB). The investigators have therefore designed this pilot prospective randomized trial to evaluate the efficacy the intraoperative use of CytoSorb for cytokines removal to prevent the inflammatory response associated with the cardiac surgery and complications in patients with CKD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Exuberant inflammatory response towards previously undiagnosed or incubating opportunistic pathogens. It is frequently seen in AIDS patients following HAART.

A member of the CXC chemokine family that plays a role in the regulation of the acute inflammatory response. It is secreted by variety of cell types and induces CHEMOTAXIS of NEUTROPHILS and other inflammatory cells.

A systemic inflammatory response to a variety of clinical insults, characterized by two or more of the following conditions: (1) fever >38 degrees C or HYPOTHERMIA <36 degrees C; (2) TACHYCARDIA >90 beat/minute; (3) tachypnea >24 breaths/minute; (4) LEUKOCYTOSIS >12,000 cells/cubic mm or 10% immature forms. While usually related to infection, SIRS can also be associated with noninfectious insults such as TRAUMA; BURNS; or PANCREATITIS. If infection is involved, a patient with SIRS is said to have SEPSIS.

The genetic region which contains the loci of genes which determine the structure of the serologically defined (SD) and lymphocyte-defined (LD) TRANSPLANTATION ANTIGENS, genes which control the structure of the IMMUNE RESPONSE-ASSOCIATED ANTIGENS, HUMAN; the IMMUNE RESPONSE GENES which control the ability of an animal to respond immunologically to antigenic stimuli, and genes which determine the structure and/or level of the first four components of complement.

An act performed without delay, reflection, voluntary direction or obvious control in response to a stimulus.
