Abstract

Burns are surrounded by an inflammatory zone of stasis that can progress to ischemia and extension of burn size. Synthetic fibronectin peptides have reduced tissue destruction in several models of inflammation. In this study, we postulate that administration of the peptide Trp-9-Tyr will alter the progression of tissue destruction following thermal injury. Baseline cutaneous blood flow was measured on New Zealand White rabbits with a laser doppler blood-flow meter. While the rabbits were under general anesthesia, 6 full-thickness burns were produced on the rabbits' backs. Blood flow in the zones of stasis was followed daily, and the number of zones that progressed to necrosis was determined at 72 hours. There were 3 experimental groups. Ten control animals received saline. Ten were treated with Trp-9-Tyr for 24 hours postburn. Ten received Trp-9-Tyr for 48 hours. Animals treated with Trp-9-Tyr had higher blood flow and less necrosis in the zones of stasis than did control animals, which was evident at 24 hours but more significant at 48 hours.
