Lipoprotein lipase during continuous heparin infusion: Tissue stores are partially depleted (2023)

section excerpt

Study design and protocol

The experiment should reflect the clinical protocol used for continuous anticoagulation - for example during hemodialysis. For this we first gave a heparin bolus (Leo Pharma, Malmö, Sweden), followed by a continuous infusion. To obtain an indirect measure of plasma heparin concentration, we determined the APTT.14,15 Ten elderly volunteers, 4 females and 6 males, were included in the study (Table I). One (MS) had undergone percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and was using a calcium supplement

This study shows that with continuous heparin administration, plasma LPL activity first rises to a peak but then falls to a plateau that is only about 15% of the peak. The initial rise is known.1, 2 The new observations here relate to the decline and plateau. Our interpretation is that heparin releases a pool of LPLs present in the endothelium or other extracellular sites in the tissue. Once the lipase enters the plasma, it is absorbed and broken down

  • Insulin or blood cleansing therapy in hypertriglyceridemia-associated acute pancreatitis: A systematic review and meta-analysis: Insulin or blood cleansing in HTG-AP

    2022, Pancreatology


    However, despite these positive effects, our analysis did not compare IT alone with dietary restriction (with standard fluid resuscitation) for HTG-AP, and since there were no randomized trials examining this comparison, the full effect of IT on HTG-AP remains unclear. . Heparin may also be beneficial through lipoprotein lipase release [81] and anticoagulant effects [82] [79,80], however, our analysis is inconclusive on the influence of heparin on HTG-AP. The effectiveness of BPT in reducing serum TGs may be sufficiently beneficial in certain patient populations to warrant the increased risk of side effects and higher costs compared to those associated with IT [48].

    Hypertriglyceridemia increases the risk of acute pancreatitis (HTG-AP) compared to other causes, but the optimal treatment of HTG-AP is still unclear. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies of insulin-based therapy (IT) versus blood cleansing therapy (BPT) for HTG-AP.

    Searches were conducted to identify randomized trials and observational studies published between 1946 and 2022 that compared IT and BPT for HTG-AP, reporting baseline and post-treatment serum triglyceride (TG) levels with clinical outcomes. The primary endpoint was serum TG reduction (Δ-TG) from baseline, while secondary endpoints included complications, length of stay, side effects, and cost.

    15 studies (1 randomized, 2 prospective case-controlled and 12 retrospective cohort studies) covering 909 cases with HTG-AP were analyzed. The pooled results showed that IT was significantly less effective than BPT on Δ-TG at 24 hours (WMD -666.06, 95% CI -1130.18 to -201.94,P=0.005; 12 studies), at 48 hours (WMD -672.60, 95% CI -1233.44 to -111.77; 8 studies), and total Δ-TG at day 7 (WMD -385.81, 95% - CI -711.07 to -60.54; 8 studies). ) (bothP= 0.02). However, IT was associated with significantly fewer adverse events (OR 0.09, 95% CI 0.03 to 0.27).P<0.0001; 7 studies) and significantly reduced costs (WMD -2.50, 95% CI -3.61 to -1.39,P<0.00001; 3 studies). Other secondary outcomes did not differ significantly between the two therapies (all).P≥0.11). In the subgroup analysis, Δ-TG at 24 hours and total Δ-TG became insignificant, while other results were unaffected.

  • Hypertriglyceridemia and acute pancreatitis

    2020, Pancreatology


    Heparin first stimulates an increase in lipoprotein lipase, which lowers triglyceride levels by converting them to free fatty acids [46]. However, this decrease in triglycerides is transient in nature and hepatic degradation of lipoprotein lipase contributes to the depletion of plasma stores of lipoprotein lipase, ultimately leading to an increase in circulating chylomicrons and recurrent hypertriglyceridemia [47,48]. Heparin also carries the additional risk of bleeding into the pancreatic bed associated with acute pancreatitis.

    Hypertriglyceridemia is the third most common cause of acute pancreatitis. It typically occurs in patients with an underlying disorder of lipoprotein metabolism and the presence of a comorbidity such as uncontrolled diabetes, alcohol abuse, or drug use.

    The presentation of pancreatitis induced by hypertriglyceridemia resembles that of acute pancreatitis from other causes. However, patients with hypertriglyceridemia-induced pancreatitis are more likely to develop severe disease and are more likely to have persistent organ failure. Initial treatment for hypertriglyceridemia-induced pancreatitis is also similar to that for acute pancreatitis of other causes and consists of aggressive fluid intake, pain control, and nutritional support. If necessary, hypertriglyceridemia is treated with apheresis or insulin therapy.

    Timely detection of hypertriglyceridemia associated with acute pancreatitis is critical in both initial and long-term management of this disease and important to prevent acute pancreatitis from recurring. The review aims to highlight the etiology, pathogenesis, and clinical course of acute pancreatitis caused by hypertriglyceridemia.

  • Early elimination of fatty acids in hypertriglyceridemia-induced acute pancreatitis (ELEFANT study): protocol of an open-label, multicenter, adaptively randomized clinical trial

    2020, Pancreatology


    First, there is a rapid acceleration in lipoprotein lipase levels caused by heparin, which later turns into a reverse rapid decrease due to liver degradation. This deterioration promotes a gradual increase in chylomicron levels due to depletion of plasma lipoprotein lipase stores [3,21,22]. Therefore, heparin treatment in combination with insulin can be considered as a treatment option as it increases LPL activity and thus is able to reduce serum TG and FFAs [23,24].

    Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a life-threatening inflammatory disease without specific pharmacological treatment. However, for some causes, early specific intervention (eg, ERCP for biliary AP) has been shown to be remarkably beneficial. Hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) causes severe damage to the pancreas through multiple direct (cell damage) and indirect (impairment of microcirculation) mechanisms. Published data suggest that early removal of triglycerides (TGs) and toxic free fatty acids (FFAs) could be beneficial; However, the literature still lacks high-quality evidence.

    Design: ELEFANT is a randomized, controlled, multicenter, international study testing the concept that early elimination of TGs and FFAs from the blood is beneficial in HTG-AP. The study will be conducted using the adaptive drop-the-loser design, which supports the possibility of dropping the inferior treatment arm based on the results of the interim analysis. Patients with HTG-AP, defined by a TG level greater than 11.3 mmol/L (1000 mg/dL), will be randomized into three groups: (A) patients undergoing plasmapheresis and receiving aggressive fluid resuscitation; (B) patients receiving insulin and heparin therapy with aggressive fluid resuscitation; and (C) patients undergoing aggressive fluid resuscitation. Please note that all procedures must be initiated within 48 hours of the onset of abdominal pain. Logically, exclusion criteria are designed to reduce the possibility of possible confounding effects of other diseases. The composite primary endpoint includes both severity and mortality.

    (Video) Anticoagulant, part-5/Heparin/Anticoagulant technique/tight heparin method/bolus infusion of heparin

    Our null hypothesis is that early elimination of HTG and FFAs reduces the risk of mortality and the severity of AP. Calculating the sample size suggests that 495 patients must be enrolled to confirm or reject the hypothesis with a 10% dropout, 80% power, and 95% significance level. The general safety and quality controls required for high-quality documentation are adhered to. The survey will be conducted between February 2020 and December 2025.

    Our study would provide the first direct evidence for or against early intervention in HTG-induced AP.

    Vasotocin analogues with selective natriuretic, kaliuretic and antidiuretic effects in rats

    Regulatory Peptides, bind 185, 2013, pp. 57-64

    The aim of this study was to investigate mechanisms mediating selective effects of vasotocin analogs on water, sodium and potassium excretion. We tested vasotocin analogues: Mpa1-Vasotocin (dAVT), Mpa1-Arg4-vasotocin (dAAVT) and Mpa1- DArg8- Vasotocin (dDAVT). The effects on water, sodium and potassium transport were assessed in experiments using normal and hydrated Wistar rats. All tested peptides have been shown to exert antidiuretic activity. Vasotocin and dAVT induced natriuresis and kaliuresis in rats. V1aAgonist (Phe2-With3-Orn8-vasopressin) reproduced the renal effects of dAVT on sodium and potassium excretion but not on water absorption. dAAVT, dDAVT and V2The agonist (desmopressin) induced kaliuresis without affecting sodium excretion. Natriuresis was associated with an increase in cGMP secretion, whereas kaliuresis was correlated with an increase in cAMP secretion. V1aAntagonist (Pmp1-Bull(I)2-vasopressin) significantly reduced dAVT-stimulated natriuresis and had no effect on urinary potassium excretion. V2Antagonist (Pmp1- DIle2-With4-vasopressin) significantly reduced dAVT- and dAAVT-induced kaliuresis. The effect of the nonapeptides on sodium and potassium transport is thought to be independent of their antidiuretic activity and mediated by different subtypes of V receptors (V1aor v1a-like receptor for natriuretic effect and V2or v2-as a kaliuretic). According to the data obtained, there is a possibility of selective regulation of renal water intake and urinary excretion of sodium and potassium with the participation of neurohypophyseal hormones.

    A tryptophan derivative TD-26 attenuates thrombus formation by inhibiting both PI3K/Akt signaling and binding of fibrinogen to integrin αIIbβ3

    Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications, Band 465, Ausgabe 3, 2015, s. 516-522

    (Video) Genetic Therapies for Genetic Diseases: Results and Lessons from Recent Successes

    The incidence and mortality of thrombotic diseases are increasing rapidly worldwide. However, the existing antithrombotics are associated with side effects, especially bleeding complications. Therefore, there is a continuing need to develop more effective and safer antithrombotic agents. In this study, we discovered a new synthetic tryptophan derivative TD-26, which has a potent inhibitory effect on platelet aggregation without causing an apparent risk of bleeding. TD-26 has been shown to inhibit platelet aggregation induced by ADP, thrombin, U46619 and collageninvitroand suppressed platelet aggregation induced by ADPDirect. Mechanism studies showed that TD-26 inhibited platelet adhesion to fibrinogen-coated surfaces, blocked fibrinogen binding to integrin αIIbβ3, and reduced AktSer473Phosphorylation in platelet phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) signaling. In addition, TD-26 showed potent antithrombotic activityI live. In animal models, it reduced death by 90% and reduced thrombus weight by 60.3% in mice with acute pulmonary thrombosis, both at a dose of 3 mg/kg. In addition, TD-26 did not unduly prolong bleeding time in mice. Taken together, our results demonstrate that TD-26 is a novel antithrombotic compound exhibiting both integrin αIIbβ3 inhibition and PI3K signaling blockade with a low risk of bleeding.

    Cardiomyocyte endothelial cell control of lipoprotein lipase

    Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Molecular and Cellular Biology of Lipids, bound 1861, published 2016-10-10, pp. 1434-1441

    In people with diabetes, inadequate medical therapy leads to heart failure, which is the leading cause of death associated with diabetes. One cause of this cardiac dysfunction is changes in the fuel consumption of the heart. After diabetes, when the heart's ability to use glucose is impaired, the heart undergoes a metabolic conversion and uses fat as its sole source of energy. Although this switch initially aims to help the heart, in the long term it has adverse effects on heart function. This includes the formation of harmful by-products that damage cardiomyocytes, ultimately leading to increased morbidity and mortality. A major contributor to this metabolic imbalance is lipoprotein lipase (LPL), the enzyme responsible for supplying the heart with fat. Both excess and decreased activity after diabetes can lead to cardiac dysfunction. Given the disturbing news that diabetes is widespread around the world, gaining further insight into the mechanisms by which cardiac LPL is regulated could help other researchers develop novel therapeutic strategies to restore metabolic balance to treat heart disease associated with Diabetes occur, prevent or delay.

    Determination of triglyceride reductions required for clinical effect in severe hypertriglyceridemia

    The American Journal of Medicine, Band 127, Ausgabe 1, 2014, s. 36-44.e1

    Patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease and pancreatitis. There is currently no known association between target triglyceride levels and clinical benefit for patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia. This study investigates the association between lower follow-up triglyceride levels and the occurrence of clinical events in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia.

    Using data from two major US health databases, we conducted a retrospective cohort study and identified 41,210 adults with severe hypertriglyceridemia (triglycerides ≥ 500 mg/dL) between June 2001 and September 2010. The date of the first serious laboratory finding was the date of the first severe hypertriglyceridemia. index date. Patients were assigned to one of five triglyceride ranges (<200 mg/dL, 200–299 mg/dL, 300–399 mg/dL, 400–499 mg/dL, and ≥500 mg/dL) based on follow-up triglyceride levels was determined 6 to 24 weeks after the first measurement of the triglyceride level. Fitted Cox regression models were developed to assess the effect of follow-up triglyceride levels on the incidence of pancreatitis episodes and cardiovascular events.

    The mean age of the patients was 50 years, 72% were male, and the mean follow-up was 825 days. Patients with severe hypertriglyceridaemia and follow-up triglyceride levels < 200 mg/dL had a lower rate of pancreatitis episodes (adjusted incidence ratio 0.45; 95% CI 0.34-0.60) and cardiovascular events (adjusted incidence rate 0.71). ; 95% confidence interval, 0.64-0.78) of some clinical benefit in adults with severe hypertriglyceridemia with follow-up triglyceride levels of 200 to 299 mg/dL and 300 to 399 mg/dL (P< 0.001 for trend).

    We observed the greatest impact on clinical events in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia with the lowest triglyceride levels at follow-up.

    Clinical features of hypertriglyceridemia-induced acute pancreatitis in an international, multicenter, prospective cohort (APPRENTICE consortium)

    Pancreatology, Vol. 20, Issue 3, 2020, pp. 325-330

    The clinical features and outcomes of hypertriglyceridemia-induced acute pancreatitis (HTG-AP) are not well known.

    Evaluation of the clinical features of HTG-AP in an international, multicenter prospective cohort.

    Data collection was prospectively performed by APPRENTICE between 2015 and 2018. HTG-AP was defined as serum TG levels >500 mg/dl in the absence of other common causes of AP. Three multivariate logistic regression models were performed to assess whether HTG-AP is associated with SIRS-positive status, ICU admission, and/or moderate/severe AP.

    The study included 1,478 patients; HTG-AP was diagnosed in 69 subjects (4.7%). HTG-AP patients tended to be younger (mean 40 vs 50 years; p<0.001), male (67% vs 52%; p=0.018) and had a higher BMI (mean 30.4 vs 27.5 kg). /m2).2; p=0.0002). HTG-AP subjects were more likely to report active alcohol use (71% vs 49%; p<0.001) and diabetes mellitus (59% vs 15%; p<0.001). In the multivariate logistic regression models, it was found that none of the above risk factors/variables are independently associated with positive SIRS status, ICU admission, or severity. These results were similar when only the 785 subjects whose TG levels were measured within 48 hours of admission were included.

    HTG-AP has been found to be the fourth most common AP etiology. HTG-AP patients had different baseline characteristics, but their clinical outcomes were similar when compared to other AP etiologies.

    Routine laboratory measurements of heparin anticoagulation in children for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation: systematic review and meta-analysis

    Thromboseforschung, bind 179, 2019, s. 132-139

    Specific anticoagulation protocols for children on ECMO vary from facility to facility, with most using continuous infusion of unfractionated heparin. The aim of this study is to assist the clinician in deciding the best target for heparin anticoagulation testing. This would be the one that correlates well with heparin activity and helps predict hemorrhagic and thrombotic complications.

    A comprehensive search of MEDLINE, EMBASE, the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and Scopus was conducted from the beginning of each database to 13/07/2018.

    Studies evaluating children (<18 years) treated with ECMO and evaluating ACT, aPTT, TEG, and anti-Xa in all languages ​​were included.

    Two reviewers independently selected and reviewed studies and abstracted data.

    We included 19 studies (759 patients, mean age 19.8 months). The meta-analysis showed a strong correlation between heparin dosage and anti-Xa. In addition, there was no strong correlation between laboratory tests and complications (hemorrhagic and thrombotic) or mortality.

    Based on current evidence, anti-Xa is the only laboratory test that shows a strong correlation with heparin infusion dose and appears to be the most appropriate test for monitoring anticoagulation with heparin in children on ECMO.

How does heparin affect lipoprotein lipase? ›

Heparin activates lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and hepatic lipase (HL), enhances plasma lipolytic activity and elevates plasma levels of free fatty acids (FFA). The metabolic consequences of this effect are controversial.

What causes a lipoprotein lipase deficiency? ›

Familial lipoprotein lipase deficiency is caused by a defective gene that is passed down through families. People with this condition lack an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase. Without this enzyme, the body cannot break down fat from digested food. Fat particles called chylomicrons build up in the blood.

What is a deficiency in lipoprotein lipase activity? ›

Lipoprotein lipase deficiency is a genetic disorder with an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. It usually presents in childhood and is characterized by severe hypertriglyceridemia and chylomicronemia. It is the most common form of chylomicronemia and was formerly known as hyperlipoproteinemia type 1a.

What is the function of the lipoprotein lipase? ›

Lipoprotein lipase plays a critical role in breaking down fat in the form of triglycerides, which are carried from various organs to the blood by molecules called lipoproteins.

What happens if lipoprotein lipase is inhibited? ›

This suggests that LPL inhibition increased inflammation in adipose tissue. NDGA supplementation increased adipose inflammatory expression.

What increases lipoprotein lipase? ›

Along with the inhibition of lipolysis, insulin promotes fat deposition through multiple actions that determine increased supply of substrates for the synthesis of TAG. It stimulates the synthesis and secretion of lipoprotein lipase (LpL) in capillary endothelium.

Is lipoprotein lipase good or bad? ›

Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) plays a major role in the lipid homeostasis mainly by mediating the intravascular lipolysis of triglyceride rich lipoproteins. Impaired LPL activity leads to the accumulation of chylomicrons and very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) in plasma, resulting in hypertriglyceridemia.

What are symptoms of low lipase levels? ›

What are the symptoms of lysosomal acid lipase deficiency?
  • enlargement of the liver and spleen (hepatosplenomegaly)
  • yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice)
  • developmental delay.
  • poor feeding.
  • fatty stools (steatorrhea)
  • vomiting.
  • diarrhea.
  • poor weight and height gain (failure to thrive)

What inhibits lipoprotein lipase? ›

Apolipoproteins C-I and C-III Inhibit Lipoprotein Lipase Activity by Displacement of the Enzyme from Lipid Droplets.

What can be the cardiovascular consequence of a deficient lipoprotein lipase? ›

Is lipoprotein lipase deficiency curable? ›

A proportion of LPL deficient individuals can be successfully treated by dietary restriction of fats, but many are still plagued by recurrent abdominal pain and episodes of acute pancreatitis. The goal of restricting fat intake is to reduce chylomicronemia and hypertriglyceridemia enough to prevent symptoms.

Why does lipoprotein lipase deficiency cause pancreatitis? ›

Lipoprotein lipase deficiency is a genetic disorder in which a person has a defective gene for lipoprotein lipase, which leads to very high triglycerides, which in turn causes stomach pain and deposits of fat under the skin, and which can lead to problems with the pancreas and liver, which in turn can lead to diabetes.

Which drug activates lipoprotein lipase? ›

What activates the LPL enzyme? ›

LPL is produced in fat, skeletal, and heart muscle. Activated by its cofactor apoC-II [198], LPL mediates the hydrolysis of TG in CM and VLDL at the luminal side of the endothelium. Generated FFA are subsequently used for energy production in muscle or stored as fat in adipose.

What is the effect of low lipoprotein? ›

Although the risks are rare, very low levels of LDL cholesterol may be associated with an increased risk of: Cancer. Hemorrhagic stroke. Depression.

Does lipoprotein lipase activation increase or decrease with physical activity? ›

Furthermore, physical exercise increases the activity of lipoprotein lipase in the skeletal muscle and in the adipose tissue (Nikkilä et al., 1978).

What is the effect of lipoprotein lipase on cholesterol? ›

Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is a rate-limiting enzyme that hydrolyzes circulating triglyceride-rich lipoprotein such as very low density lipoproteins and chylomicrons. A decrease in LPL activity is associated with an increase in plasma triglycerides (TG) and decrease in high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.

The more common side effects of this drug include: bruising more easily. bleeding that takes longer to stop. irritation, pain, redness, or sores at the injection site.

How does heparin affect coagulation profile? ›

Once active thrombosis has developed, larger amounts of heparin can inhibit further coagulation by inactivating thrombin and preventing the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin. Heparin also prevents the formation of a stable fibrin clot by inhibiting the activation of the fibrin stabilizing factor.

What factors are affected by heparin? ›

By inactivating thrombin, heparin not only prevents fibrin formation but also inhibits thrombin-induced activation of platelets and of factors V and VIII. The main limitation of heparin results from its propensity to bind to positively charged proteins and surfaces.

What effect does heparin have on a blood sample? ›

Adding too much liquid heparin (sodium or calcium) to the blood sample can lead to positive bias by binding to positive ions and lead to negative bias by increasing the acidity level of the blood gases and the diluting blood sample [12, 15, 16].

What are the actions of lipoprotein lipase? ›

Lipoprotein lipase catalyses the partial hydrolysis of the core triglycerides of chylomicrons and VLDL to monoglycerides and fatty acids. The fatty acids are taken up by the tissue and either re-esterified and stored (in adipose tissue), utilized as an energy source (in muscle) or secreted (in lactating breast tissue).

What activates lipoprotein lipase receptors? ›

LPL is produced in fat, skeletal, and heart muscle. Activated by its cofactor apoC-II [198], LPL mediates the hydrolysis of TG in CM and VLDL at the luminal side of the endothelium.

What is the reaction of lipoprotein lipase? ›

Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) catalyses the hydrolysis of the triacylglycerol component of circulating chylomicrons and very low density lipoproteins, thereby providing non-esterified fatty acids and 2-monoacylglycerol for tissue utilisation.

What regulates lipoprotein lipase? ›

ANGPTL3 Inhibits Lipoprotein Lipase and Endothelial Lipase. Human ANGPTL3 is a 62 kDa glycoprotein expressed in the liver [143,161,162]. ANGPTL3 regulates VLDL levels by inhibiting LPL [163] and plasma HDL levels by inhibiting endothelial lipase (EL) [164].
