Objective: Patients with cardiac arrest (CA) are often suffering from pulmonary ischemia-reperfusion injury after active cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). In recent years, previous studies have found that acute lung injury (ALI) after ROSC could be an independent risk factor for the prognosis of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). However, there is still a lack of effective therapy for pulmonary injury caused by CA-CPR-ROSC with no side effects.

Methods: C57BL/6 male mice, aged from 8 to 10 weeks were purchased from Dossy Experimental Animals Co. Ltd (Chengdu, China). All the mice were feeding and drinking freely in the animal room of Sichuan University West China Science and Technology Park for one week. The experiments involving mice were approved by the Ethics Committee from West China Hospital of Sichuan University (approval No.2017071A). At the day before experiment, mice were given fasting treatment but allowed to drink water freely. CA-CPR-ROSC could cause global cerebral ischemia injury in vivo. APN (10μg/0.05ml per mice) was intravenously injected to mice at 10 min after restoration of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). Computed tomography (CT) scan of the lungs was performed before executing the animals. We used the Opal Color Manual IHC staining Kit for multiplex immunofluorescence staining measurement. Western blot detected the expression of Nrf2, OCLN, and CLDN5 in murine pulmonary tissues.

Results: The results of CT scanning and routine histological measurements showed that APN could protect mice against murine pulmonary injury caused by CA-CPR-ROSC, compared to that of mice in CA-CPR-ROSC group. The results of western blot suggested that the expression of Nrf2 significantly increased in mice pulmonary tissues in CA-CPR-ROSC, whereas the expression of OCLN and CLDN5 obviously decreased in murine pulmonary tissues in CA-CPR-ROSC.

Conclusion: Current study indicated the protect role of Adiponectin against acute murine pulmonary injury caused by CA-CPR-ROSC. The protective role of Adiponectin against acute murine pulmonary injury caused by CA-CPR-ROSC might be associated to the Nrf2 signaling pathway.
