Intravenous application of a primary sevoflurane metabolite improves outcome in murine septic peritonitis: first results


Herrmann, Inge K; Castellon, Maricela; Schwartz, David E; Hasler, Melanie; Urner, Martin; Hu, Guochang; Minshall, Richard D; Beck-Schimmer, Beatrice (2013). Intravenous application of a primary sevoflurane metabolite improves outcome in murine septic peritonitis: first results. PLoS ONE, 8(8):e72057.

Abstract

Volatile anesthetics are known to have immunomodulatory effects in conditions of organ injury. A recent study in an experimental sepsis model has shown remarkably improved survival when mice were exposed to volatile anesthetics. In the present study, we show that hexafluoroisopropanol - a water-soluble primary sevoflurane metabolite - has beneficial effects on the overall survival in a murine model of cecal ligation and puncture. Seven-day survival as well as tissue damage markers including transaminases and high mobility group box protein-1 were assessed as measures of end organ damage. In animals undergoing cecal ligation and puncture procedure hexafluoroisopropanol conditioning - but not late postconditioning 24 hours after sepsis induction - significantly increased survival rate (17% vs. 77%, p = 0.037) and attenuated secretion of organ damage markers. This study shows survival benefits by administration of the metabolite of a volatile anesthetic. If successfully translated, hexafluoroisopropanol might offer interesting therapeutic opportunities in the future treatment of abdominal sepsis.
