Hematologia e Hemoterapia

We evaluated the effect of r-hirudin and/or tissue-plasminogen activator (t-PA) in a model of DIC in rabbits induced by i.v. infusion of 100 micrograms/kg/h/6 h endotoxin. Rabbits were treated with saline (endotoxin control group), r-hirudin at 0.3 mg/kg/h/6 h, t-PA at 0.3 mg/kg for 90 min and r-hirudin plus t-PA at the doses described above.

The best results were achieved when r-hirudin and t-PA were infused together. This treatment reduced the consumption of platelets and protein C and attenuated the increase of PAI-1 more efficiently than r-hirudin or t-PA alone. r-Hirudin plus t-PA also resulted in the lowest formation of fibrin deposits in the kidneys. Finally, mortality at 24 h dropped from 70% in the endotoxin control group to 40%, 10% and 0% in the t-PA, r-hirudin and r-hirudin plus t-PA groups respectively. None of the t-PA-infused rabbits which had died by 24 h showed macroscopic signs of haemorrhage. r-Hirudin alone was better than t-PA alone, as was shown by fibrin deposits and mortality. We conclude that r-hirudin and t-PA given simultaneously were more efficient than either given alone in this model of DIC.>

Effective thrombin inhibition, which could influence other pathophysiological mechanisms apart from coagulation, together with the improvement in fibrinolysis, would explain these results.
