AIMS: To compare the effects of two TNF-α antagonists, etanercept and infliximab, on post-cardiac arrest haemodynamics and global left ventricular function (LV) in a swine model following ventricular fibrillation (VF) METHODS: Domestic swine (n=30) were placed under general anaesthesia and instrumented before VF was induced electrically. After 7minutes of VF, standard ACLS resuscitation was performed. Animals achieving return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) were randomized to immediately receive infliximab (5mg/kg, n=10) or etanercept (0.3mg/kg [4mg/m(2)], n=10) or vehicle (250mL normal saline [NS], n=10) and LV function and haemodynamics were monitored for 3hours RESULTS: Following ROSC, mean arterial pressure (MAP), stroke work (SW), and LV dP/dt fell from prearrest values in all groups. However, at the 30minute nadir, infliximab-treated animals had higher MAP than either the NS group (difference 14.4mm Hg, 95% confidence interval [CI] 4.2-24.7) or the etanercept group (19.2mm Hg, 95% CI 9.0-29.5), higher SW than the NS group (10.3 gm-m, 95% CI 5.1-15.5) or the etanercept group (8.9 gm-m, 95% CI 4.0-14.4) and greater LV dP/dt than the NS group (282.9mm Hg/sec, 95% CI 169.6-386.1 higher with infliximab) or the etanercep group (228.9mm Hg/sec, 95% CI 115.6-342.2 higher with infliximab). CONCLUSIONS: Only infliximab demonstrated a beneficial effect on post cardiac arrest haemodynamics and LV function in this swine model. Etanercept was no better in this regard than saline.
