Abstract [en]

Fever occurs upon binding of prostaglandin E-2 (PGE(2)) to EP3 receptors in the median preoptic nucleus of the hypothalamus, but the origin of the pyrogenic PGE(2) has not been clearly determined. Here, using mice of both sexes, we examined the role of local versus generalized PGE(2) production in the brain for the febrile response. In wild-type mice and in mice with genetic deletion of the prostaglandin synthesizing enzyme cyclooxygenase-2 in the brain endothelium, generated with an inducible CreER(T2) under the Slco1c1 promoter, PGE(2) levels in the CSF were only weakly related to the magnitude of the febrile response, whereas the PGE(2) synthesizing capacity in the hypothalamus, as reflected in the levels of cyclooxygenase-2 mRNA, showed strong correlation with the immune-induced fever. Histological analysis showed that the deletion of cyclooxygenase-2 in brain endothelial cells occurred preferentially in small-and medium-sized vessels deep in the brain parenchyma, such as in the hypothalamus, whereas larger vessels, and particularly those close to the neocortical surface and in the meninges, were left unaffected, hence leaving PGE(2) synthesis largely intact in major parts of the brain while significantly reducing it in the region critical for the febrile response. Furthermore, injection of a virus vector expressing microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) into the median preoptic nucleus of fever-refractive mPGES-1 knock-out mice, resulted in a temperature elevation in response to LPS. We conclude that the febrile response is dependent on local release of PGE(2) onto its target neurons and not on the overall PGE(2) production in the brain.

Abstract [en]

Sickness responses to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) were examined in mice with deletion of the interleukin (IL)-1 type 1 receptor (IL-1R1). IL-1R1 knockout (1(0) mice displayed intact anorexia and HPA-axis activation to intraperitoneally injected LPS (anorexia: 10 or 120 mu g/kg; HPA-axis: 120 mu g/kg), but showed attenuated but not extinguished fever (120 g/kg). Brain PGE2 synthesis was attenuated, but Cox-2 induction remained intact. Neither the tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF alpha) inhibitor etanercept nor the IL -6 receptor antibody tocilizumab abolished the LPS induced fever in IL -1R1 KO mice. Deletion of IL -1R1 specifically in brain endothelial cells attenuated the LPS induced fever, but only during the late, 3rd phase of fever, whereas deletion of IL-1R1 on neural cells or on peripheral nerves had little or no effect on the febrile response. We conclude that while IL-1 signaling is not critical for LPS induced anorexia or stress hormone release, IL-1R1, expressed on brain endothelial cells, contributes to the febrile response to LPS. However, also in the absence of IL-1R1, LPS evokes a febrile response, although this is attenuated. This remaining fever seems not to be mediated by IL-6 receptors or TNFa, but by some yet unidentified pyrogenic factor.

Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: To determine a neuro-anatomic cause for central neuropathic pain (CNP) observed in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.

METHODS: Parallel clinical and neuro-anatomical studies were performed. A clinical investigation of consecutively acquired MS patients with and without CNP (i.e. cold allodynia or deep hyperesthesia) within a single MS center was pursued. A multivariate logistic regression model was used to assess the relationship between an upper central thoracic spinal cord focus to central pain complaints. To identify the hypothesized autonomic interneurons with bilateral descending projections to lumbosacral sensory neurons, retrograde single- and double-labeling experiments with CTb and fluorescent tracers were performed in three animal species (i.e. rat, cat, and monkey).

RESULTS: Clinical data were available in MS patients with (n = 32; F:23; median age: 34.6 years (interquartile range [IQR]: 27.4-45.5)) and without (n = 30; F:22; median age: 36.6 years [IQR: 31.6-47.1]) CNP. The value of a central focus between T1-T6 in relation to CNP demonstrated a sensitivity of 96.9% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 83.8-99.9) and specificity of 83.3% (95% CI: 65.3-94.4). A significant relationship between CNP and a centrally located focus within the thoracic spine was also observed (odds ratio [OR]: 155.0 [95% CI lower limit: 16.0]; P < 0.0001, two-tailed Fisher exact test). In all animal models, neurons with bilateral descending projections to the lumbosacral superficial dorsal horn were concentrated in the autonomic intermediomedial nucleus surrounding the mid-thoracic central canal.

INTERPRETATION: Our observations provide the first evidence for the etiology of CNP. These data may assist with the development of refined symptomatic therapies and allow for insights into unique pain syndromes observed in other demyelinating subtypes.

Abstract [en]

The proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-1 beta (IL-beta) plays a major role in the signal transduction of immune stimuli from the periphery to the central nervous system, and has been shown to be an important mediator of the immune-induced stress hormone release. The signaling pathway by which IL-1 beta exerts this function involves the blood-brain-barrier and induced central prostaglandin synthesis, but the identity of the blood-brain-barrier cells responsible for this signal transduction has been unclear, with both endothelial cells and perivascular macrophages suggested as critical components. Here, using an irradiation and transplantation strategy, we generated mice expressing IL-1 type 1 receptors (IL-1 RI) either in hematopoietic or non-hematopoietic cells and subjected these mice to peripheral immune challenge with IL-beta. Following both intraperitoneal and intravenous administration of IL-beta, mice lacking IL-1R1 in hematopoietic cells showed induced expression of the activity marker c-Fos in the paraventricular hypothalamic nucleus, and increased plasma levels of ACTH and corticosterone. In contrast, these responses were not observed in mice with IL-1R1 expression only in hematopoietic cells. Immunoreactivity for IL-1R1 was detected in brain vascular cells that displayed induced expression of the prostaglandin synthesizing enzyme cyclooxygenase-2 and that were immunoreactive for the endothelial cell marker CD31, but was not seen in cells positive for the brain macrophage marker CD206. These results imply that activation of the HPA-axis by IL-1 beta is dependent on IL-1R1 s on non-hematopoietic cells, such as brain endothelial cells, and that IL-1R1 on perivascular macrophages are not involved.
