OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression changes of high mobility group box-1 (HMGB-1) and tissue factor (TF) and their correlation in the serum of sepsis rat models.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: 30 rats were divided into the sham-operated group, 15 rats were in the control group. The cecal ligation and puncture method was used to make the animal model with abdominal infection induced by sepsis. There were 15 rats in the sepsis group among which they were divided into 3 subgroups at different time points after modeling (after 6 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours). Cardiac function indicators of the rats in each subgroup were monitored, including heart rate (HR), left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP) and left ventricular developed pressure (LVDP), and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to test the changes of the expression levels of HMGB-1 and TF in the serum of the rats after 6 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours. Pearson correlation analysis was used to analyze the correlation between HMGB-1 and TF.

RESULTS: HR and LVEDP of the rats in the sepsis group were significantly higher than those of the rats in the control group. The differences were statistically significant (p<0.050). LVDP of the rats in the sepsis group was markedly lower than that of the rats in the control group. The differences were statistically significant (p<0.050). The expressions of HMGB-1 and TF of the rats in the subgroups of the sepsis group were higher than those of the rats in the control group after 6 hours, 12 hours, 24 hours; the expression levels of HMGB-1 and TF of the rats with sepsis increased with time. The differences were statistically significant (p<0.050). When the expressions of HMGB-1 and TF of the rats in the sepsis group were compared with each other within the group the differences were significantly different (p<0.050). The expressions of HMGB-1 and TF in the subgroups at the 24th hour were significantly higher than those at the 6th hour. The differences were statistically significant (p<0.050). The differences of the expression of TF of the rats in the control group were not statistically significant (p>0.050). There was a significant positive correlation between HMGB-1 and TF of the rats in the sepsis group (r=0.772, p=0.002).

CONCLUSIONS: The expression levels of HMGB-1 and TF of the rats with sepsis gradually increased with time, and the level of HMGB-1 was positively correlated with the level of TF.
