Abstract : Coagulation is an important pathway in the pathophysiology of ischemia-reperfusion injuries. In particular, deceased after circulatory death (DCD) donors undergo a no-flow period, a strong activator of coagulation. Hence, therapies influencing the coagulation cascade must be developed. We evaluated the effect of a new highly specific and effective anti-Xa/IIa molecule, with an integrated innovative antidote site (EP217609), in a porcine preclinical model mimicking injuries observed in DCD donor kidney transplantation. Kidneys were clamped for 60 minutes (warm ischemia), then flushed and preserved for 24 hours at 4°C in University of Wisconsin (UW) solution (supplemented or not). EP217609-supplemented UW solution (UW-EP), compared with unfractionated heparin-supplemented UW solution (UW-UFH) or UW alone (UW). A mechanistic investigation was conducted in vitro: addition of EP217609 to endothelial cells during hypoxia at 4°C in the UW solution inhibited thrombin generation during reoxygenation at 37°C in human plasma and reduced tumor necrosis factor alpha, intercellular adhesion molecule 1, and vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 messenger RNA cell expressions. In vivo, function recovery was markedly improved in the UW-EP group. Interestingly, levels of thrombin-antithrombin complexes (reflecting thrombin generation) were reduced 60 minutes after reperfusion in the UW-EP group. In addition, 3 months after transplantation, lower fibrosis, epithelial-mesenchymal transition, inflammation, and leukocyte infiltration were observed. Using this new dual anticoagulant, anti-Xa/IIa activity during kidney flush and preservation is protected by reducing thrombin generation at revascularization, improving early function recovery, and decreasing chronic lesions. Such an easy-to-deploy clinical strategy could improve marginal graft outcome.
