Objective To investigate the influence of iloprost on the expression of lung endothelin-1(ET-1)in rats with hypoxic pulmonary hypertension(HPH).Methods Thirty-two male SD rats were randomly divided into four groups:normal control(NC)group,normal treatment(NT)group,hypoxia control(HC)group,hypoxia treatment(HT)group.NC group and NT group raised under normal Oxygen conditions 3 weeks.HC and HT group placed in a low Oxygen chamber(O2 10%)were treated 3weeks of hypoxia 8hours per day.NT and HT group were treated daily iloprost by inhalation therapy(2μg/kg).Affer three weeks,measured mean pulmonary arterial pressure(mPAP),right ventricular systolic pressure(RVSP),index of right ventricular hypertrophy.HE staining was used to observe the morphological changes of pulmonary arteries and image analysis system was used to calculate the percentage of vascular wall thickness of small pulmonary arteries in each group,RT-PCR technique was used to assess the trends of ET-1in lung tissue homogenates.Results The hemodynamics in HC group was significantly higher than other groups(P0.05),there was no significant statistically difference of the hemodynamics in HT group compare with normal control group.Pulmonary arteries morphology,vessel wall thickening and vessel lumina stenosis in HC group than NC、NT、group.These indicators were significant improved in HT group.ET-1expression in lung tissue were significantly increased in HC group than NC groups.No significant difference was found between and NC group HT group.Conclusion Aerosol inhalation of iloprost has exact therapeutic effect for rats with HPH.Iloprost reduced ET-1overexpression in lung tissue in HPH rats and prevent pulmonary vascular remodeling.
