OBJECTIVE: To explore the molecular mechanisms by which mild hypothermia following resuscitation improves neurological function in a porcine model of cardiac arrest. METHODS: Thirty-three inbred Chinese Wuzhishan (WZS) minipigs were used. After 8min of untreated ventricular fibrillation (VT), survived animals (n=29) were randomly divided into two groups including serum group (n=16) and molecular group (n=13). Serum group animals were used to measure porcine-specific TNF-α, IL-6, IL-10, MMP9, AQP4, TIMP1, NSE and S100B at 0.5h, 6h, 12h, 24h and 72h recovery by ELISA. Molecular group animals were used to measure cerebral cortex mRNA and protein expression of NF-κB, MMP9, and AQP4 by real-time quantitative PCR and western blotting at 24h and 72h recovery. Animals were further divided into either normothermia or hypothermia groups. Hypothermia (33°C) was maintained for 12h using an endovascular cooling device. Swine neurologic deficit scores (NDS) were used to evaluate neurological function at 24h and 72h recovery. RESULTS: Twenty-nine of thirty-three (87.9%) animals were successfully resuscitated. The hypothermia group exhibited higher survival rates at 24h (75%) and 72h (62.5%) compared to the normothermia group (37.5% and 25%, respectively). Hypothermia markedly inhibited expression of NF-κB, TNF-α, MMP9, and NSE, and promoted expression of TIMP1 (p<0.01). The mean NDS at 24h and 72h recovery was 112.5 and 61, respectively, in the hypothermic group, and 230 and 207.5, respectively, in the normothermia group. CONCLUSION: Brain protection induced by hypothermia involves inhibition of inflammatory and brain edema pathways.
