The purpose of this study was to test the effect of canine hyperimmune frozen plasma (HFP), which is known to contain elevated levels of soluble TNFα receptor 1 (sTNFR1), on TNFα and inflammatory cell levels in a LPS-mediated rat air pouch model of inflammation.
There appears to be a correlation between elevated levels of sTNFR1 and depression of TNFα and neutrophil levels in the pouch fluid of HFP dosed rats (r = -0.73, P < 0.0001). The data suggest that canine HFP, which has been demonstrated to contain elevated levels of sTNFR1 compared with FFP, has a direct effect on depressing TNFα levels and neutrophil sequestration in the rat air pouch model of inflammation. These data suggest that HFP may be worthy of further investigation to determine whether such preparations have a therapeutic potential for treatment of acute inflammatory diseases in which TNFα is implicated.
