Abstract

is the major cause of antibiotic-associated colitis, a disease with significant morbidity and mortality. This study investigated the role of the haem oxygenase-1 (HO-1)/carbon monoxide (CO) pathway in toxin A-induced enteritis in mice. The HO substrate haemin, zinc protoporphyrin IX (ZnPP IX), a specific HO-1 inhibitor, dimanganese decacarbonyl (DMDC), a CO donor, or an equivalent volume of their respective vehicles were injected subcutaneously 30 min prior to local challenge with toxin A (25 or 50 µg per ileal loop) or PBS. Intestinal ileal loop weight/length ratios were calculated 3 h later. Ileal tissues were collected for histological analysis and measurement of myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β) production by ELISA and immunohistochemistry for HO-1. Treatment of mice subjected to toxin A (TcdA) with haemin or DMDC prevented oedema, mucosal disruption and neutrophil infiltration observed in histological analysis. It also decreased TcdA-induced MPO activity and TNF-α or IL-1β production. In contrast, the specific HO-1 inhibitor (ZnPP IX) exacerbated all these evaluated parameters. TcdA increased HO-1 expression as seen by immunohistochemistry. These results suggest that the HO-1/CO pathway exerts a protective role in TcdA-induced enteritis and that its pharmacological modulation might be important for the management of associated disease.
