Aggregation and elongation indices of erythrocytes of patients with chronic renal insufficiency relate to antioxidant capacity FRAP and CAT/SOD Ratio values The aim of the study was to evaluate multivariate correlation between selected rheological parameters and antioxidant defense biomarkers of red blood cells in patients with renal insufficiency undergoing hemodialysis. Measurement of hemorheological parameters was performed with Laser-Assisted Optical Rotational Cell Analyzer (LORCA). Superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activities were analyzed by Fridovich and Aebi methods respectively. Total antioxidant capacity, expressed as FRAP (ferric reducing ability of plasma) value was ascertained by the method of Benzi. 17 hemodialysis patients and 13 healthy control subjects were studied. It was observed that patients with renal insufficiency had significantly increased AI (aggregation index) when compared to healthy volunteers. Furthermore, these patients had significantly reduced index of deformability (elongation index - EI) in shear stress 0.58 Pa. It was found that dialyzed patients had markedly increased FRAP, which was accompanied by slight lowering of CAT/SOD ratio. Multivariate cluster analysis revealed that FRAP values were closely linked with AI whereas CAT/SOD ratio correlated with EI at the lowest shear stress pressures. On the basis of results, it could be supposed that imbalance between activities of CAT and SOD, may play crucial role in the impairment of red blood cells haemorheology in dialyzed patients. (NEFROL.

Introduction Haemodialysis used in the treatment of the end stage of renal failure is often associated with change in shape [2,23,35] and increased incidence of the red blood cells (RBCs) deformability and higher erythrocyte aggregability [7,8,9,26,37]. It was noticed that the deformability of RBCs may be correlated with release of proinflammatory cytokines and tumour necrosis factor-a. Furthermore, activation of neutrophils and platelets was observed [4,5,18]. As the result of increase in free radical generation and/or depletion of antioxidant enzymes activity oxidative stress occurred [3,4,10,13, 30,31,41]. RBCs antioxidant defence primarily consists of enzymatic and non enzymatic sys- Key words: haemodialysis erythrocyte elongation index aggregation superoxide dismutase catalase S³owa kluczowe: hemodializa erytrocyty wskaÿnik wyd³u ania agregacja dysmutaza ponadtlenkowa katalaza This work was supported by the Jagiellonian University Programs No. 501/P/203/F, W³/338/P/F and No. 501/P/191/F.

Enzymatic system includes superoxide dismutase (SOD), which catalyzes the dismutation of superoxide to hydrogen peroxide and catalase (CAT), which together with glutathione peroxidase, converts hydrogen peroxides to water and oxygen [4,14,16,19,36]. RBCs protection against the reactive oxygen species (ROS), provided by a non enzymatic antioxidant system, includes: a plasma membrane redox system (PMRS) and small thiol-containing peptides, albumin, bilirubin as well as uric acid [34]. PMRS maintenance redox state of sulfhydryl residues in membrane proteins, neutralize oxidants outside the cells, recycle a-tocopherol, reduce lipid hydroperoxides, and maintenance the extracellular concentration of ascorbic acid [34,38,39]. Total antioxidant capacity of a biological fluid and tissue is a combined effect of individual scavenging of these antioxidants [13,15,42]. Superoxide anions, high ATP levels, activated pump and altered composition and arrangement of membrane phospholipids and oxidized membrane proteins in RBCs, contribute with cell deformability in lower shear stress (elongation index) and higher values of shear stress at dissagregation (threshold shear rate) [4,5,23,35]. The aim of the study was to evaluate multivariate correlation between rheological parameters of red blood cells and antioxidant defence in patients with renal insufficiency undergoing haemodialysis. Material and Methods Blood rheology and chosen antioxidant parameters were evaluated in 17 adult patients (10 men, 7 women) with diagnosed end-stage renal disease undergoing haemodialysis twice time: just before and after dialysis session. All patients, aged 61.2 ± 15.9 yr, were routinely dialyzed for 4 h three, times weekly, in the Department of Nephrology, University Hospital, in Krakow, using low-flux polysulfone membranes. 13 healthy (3 men, 10 women), non-smoking volunteers, who were not on any kind of medication, with normal renal function, aged 50.6 ± 11.7 yr served as the control group. In the case of dialyzed group blood was drawn from the arterial side of the arteriovenous fistula just before dialysis session and was collected in polystyrene vacuum tubes containing EDTA, similarly as the venous blood obtained from the anticubital veins of control subjects. In the first step, samples were prepared for RBCs deformability measurement as follows: 25ml of blood was diluted 200 times with 0.14 mm polivinylopyrrolidone (PVP, W= , Sigma) in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS, viscosity at 37 o C up to 31 mpa x s). Aggregation measurement was performed on a sample of 1-2 ml blood. Complete blood was oxygenated for minutes before the measurement through the slow rotation in glass vessel. For measurements of antioxidant parameters whole blood was centrifugated (2400 x g for 15 min) at the room temperature. The plasma was collected and retained for determination of the FRAP. Supernatant of red blood cells was washed 4 times with 150 mmol/l solution of NaCl, and lysed Figure 1 Comparison of elongation indices (EI) of red blood cells and aggregation parameters between healthy volunteers (0 Group) and patients with end stage renal insufficiency before (1 Group) as well after dialysis session (2 Group).

CAT/SOD ratio was calculated after measurement of superoxide dismutase activity according to Fridovich's method [29] and catalase activity according to Aebi's method [1]. The total antioxidant capacity, expressed as the ferric reducing ability of plasma (FRAP) was measred spectrophotometrically by the method described by Benzi [6]. FRAP was expressed in (mmol/l). Hemorheological parameters were performed with Laser-Assisted Optical Rotational Cell Analyzer (LORCA, Mechatronics, Instruments, The Netherlands). Technical details of LORCA as well as the protocol for measurement of RBC deformability and aggregation have been described in detail previously [20-22]. The device is capable of measuring two important hemorheological properties such as: red blood cells deformability [elongation index of RBCs in 0.3 Pa shear stress (EI in 0.3 Pa ); elongation index of RBCs in 0.58 Pa shear stress (EI in 0.58 Pa ); and aggregation parameters [the amplitude of aggregation (AMP); aggregation index (AI); aggregation half time (t 1); intensity of light scattering in the prior dissagregation (Isc disc); time when cells are round and not aggregated (Isc top)] and threshold shear rate (Threshold [1/s]). All analyses were carried out using the statistical package Statistics for Windows (Statsoft, Poland, version 8.1). Test U of Mann-Whitney was used for analyzing differences between control and dialyzed subjects. In multivariate cluster analysis linkage rule called Ward's method was used. Results Figures 1 and 2 represent box plots of chosen antioxidant and rheological parameters in subjects participating in the study. The boxes include parameters' values from 25th to 75th percentiles. The central dash in boxes represent median values, and points outside the boxes show outstanding values. Control group showed significantly higher median values of CAT/SOD Ratio and significantly higher elongation indices (EI) as well as aggregation half time (t 1) than dialyzed patients. Additionally significantly reduced FRAP level (p 0.05) in healthy plasma when compared with hemodialyzed samples were observed. Aggregation index was increased significantly in dialyzed subjects as expected (figure 1 and 2; table I). The main result of a cluster analysis is a tree diagram presented in the figure 3. FRAP values were closely linked with aggregation index (AI) and threshold shear rate (Threshold). CAT/SOD Ratio correlated with elongation index in 0.3 Pa shear stress, with elongation index in 0.58 Pa shear stress and aggregation half time (t 1). Other rheological parameters (Amp, Upstroke, Isc top, Isc disc) seemed to be not linked directly with antioxidant parameters, so that these data were excluded from further analysis. Analysis of the % change of rheological and antioxidant parameters after dialysis session revealed the greatest change in red blood cells deformability as well as aggre- Table I Tests U of Mann-Whitney for significant differences between samples of healthy volunteers and samples of dialyzed patients before dialysis session.

Multivariate cluster analysis including % change of erythrocyte rheological properties and antioxidant parameters before dialysis session visualized a probable and close relationship between values of FRAP and CAT/SOD ratio before dialysis and change in aggregation index. Additionally, indirect link between alteration in EI in the low pressure and initial antioxidant markers was noticed (figure 4). It was noticed that aggregation index rose proportionally with increasing values of CAT/SOD ratio. In the higher values of CAT/ SOD ratio, occurring together with low FRAP, the largest aggregation of red blood cells was observed (figure 5). Discussion Complications of chronic renal failure predispose to the derangement and functions of erythrocyte membrane [5,8,33,36]. As a consequence rigidity of RBC increase and their survival reduce [37]. Results of the present study also demonstrate change in rheology of erythrocytes. It was observed that patients suffering from renal insufficiency had significantly increased aggregation index (AI) of red blood cells (RBCs) when comparing to healthy volunteers. Furthermore, these dialyzed patients characterized significantly lower deformability (figure 1; table I). Analysis of rheological aggregation and deformability of RBCs before and after dialysis session illustrated that elongation indices in shear stress of 0.3 and 0.58 Pa (EI 0.3 and EI 0.58) increased from 20 to 40 % of the initial values whereas AI was inconsiderably reduced (table II). These findings are analogical with reports of Nowak-Piszczek et. al. who found the improvement in deformability of cells in postdialysis samples [32,33]. Rheological alternations of red blood cells detected in patients undergoing hemodialysis may be due to structural and/ or functional changes resulting from genetic factors and/or consequence of oxidative stress [5,8,9,25,26]. Multi factors such as activation of circulating leukocytes, generation of activated complement components due to contact of blood with bioincompatible membranes, transferring endotoxins from the dialyzate to the blood compartment and possibly other factors, lead to generation of highly reactive oxygen species (ROS). It is well known, that especially vulnerable to ROS are proteins of cells membranes. For example, oxidation of amino acid tyrosine, leads to the formation of dityrosine, protein aggregation, cross-linking, and fragmentation [12]. Recently, it was reported that advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP) are carried by oxidized plasma proteins, especially albumin and accumulate in subjects with renal disease. AOPP-albumin additionally, stimulate the oxidative burst and the synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines in neutrophils and monocytes. AOPPs, may directly impair HDL and lipid metabolism [28] and might therefore oxidize polyunsaturated fatty acids in membrane. The insufficient antioxidant defence is reported as another reason of oxidative Figure 4 Multivariate cluster analysis of the % change of erythrocyte rheological properties and antioxidant parameters after dialysis session.

In the depletion of reactive oxygen species non-enzymatic components (total antioxidant capacity) and antioxidant enzymes play a role. Especially important seems balance between superoxide dismutase and catalase. For example, elevated SOD activity may imbalance cellular oxidant defence, resulting in enhanced oxidation due to the accelerated generation of hydrogen peroxide. This ef- Nefrologia i Dializoterapia Polska Numer 1 25 fect leads to activation of the second enzyme - catalase [37]. It was unexpectedly found that dialyzed patients had markedly increased total antioxidant capacity expressed, as ferric reducing ability of plasma (FRAP). Increase in FRAP was accompanied by slight lowering of CAT/SOD ratio (fi
