Purpose: Kupffer cells (KCs) present dysfunctional immunity capacity among the diabetes mellitus patients. This study aims to investigate whether Lidocaine could reverse dysfunctions of KCs, in terms of phagocytosis, granulocyte recruitment and inflammatory mediator secretion.
Methods: db/db and C57BL/6 mice were employed to establish diabetic and nondiabetic models. Upon intravenous injection of Lidocaine, KCs were isolated and cultured ex vivo. The functions of phagocytosis, recruiting granulocytes and inflammatory mediator secretion in KCs were compared between Lidocaine-treated and untreated (control) groups.
Results: Comparing with nondiabetic mice, KCs in diabetic mice presented reduced phagocytosis, activated granulocyte recruitment, increased expression of intercellular cell adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and activated levels of inflammatory mediators. With Lidocaine injection, phagocytic functions of KCs in diabetic mice were improved significantly; in contrast, recruitment of granulocytes, expression of ICAM-1 and secretion of inflammatory mediators were reduced markedly. However, Lidocaine intervention did not alter KC functions in phagocytosis, granulocyte recruitment, ICAM-1 expression or inflammatory mediator secretion among nondiabetic mice.
Conclusion: Lidocaine reversed diabetes-related dysfunctions of KCs in terms of phagocytosis, granulocyte recruitment, ICAM-1 expression or inflammatory mediator secretion.
