PURPOSE: The adipocyte-specific protein adiponectin reveals anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-atherosclerotic and vaso-protective effects. This study aims to investigate adiponectin expression in cultured human adipocytes within an inflammatory model and in patients suffering from severe sepsis and evaluates treatment effects of drotrecogin alpha (activated) (DAA). METHODS: In an in-vitro inflammatory model of adipocyte cell-culture the effect of DAA on adiponectin mRNA expression was evaluated. Synthesis of mRNA was measured by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). Supernatants of these adipocytes and serum levels of adiponectin were measured in blood of 104 patients by ELISA-method on day 1, 3 and 5 of severe sepsis. 26 patients were treated with DAA (DAA+), 78 patients without DAA (DAA-). RESULTS: Stimulation of human adipocytes with TNF alpha over 6 and 24 hours resulted in a significant decrease of adiponectin mRNA transcripts. After 24 hours of incubation adiponectin mRNA expression was significantly up-regulated according to applied dosages of DAA at 50 ng/ml and 5 μg/ml (p<0.05). Accordingly, adiponectin levels of supernatants of adipocyte culture increased after 24 hours (p<0.05). DAA- patients revealed significantly higher adiponectin serum levels compared to healthy controls (p<0.1) and DAA+ patients (p<0.05) at day 1 and 3. On day 5 after 96 hours infusion of DAA (24 μg/kg/h) adiponectin levels significantly increased in DAA+ patients and equalized towards DAA- patients (p>0.1). CONCLUSIONS: Adiponectin might be involved in the pathogenesis of the systemic inflammatory response during sepsis. Administration of DAA up-regulates adiponectin expression under circumstances of systemic inflammation.
