Abstract

BACKGROUND: Although ketamine has many beneficial effects in a rat model of noninfectious inflammation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS), its effects on gut ileus are unknown. We hypothesized that ketamine would improve LPS-induced ileus and therefore examined its effects on gastric emptying and intestinal transit as well as duodenogastric bile reflux and associated gastric bleeding. METHODS: Male rats received saline or ketamine (7 mg/kg ip) 1 hour before saline or LPS (20 mg/kg ip) for 5 hours. Thirty minutes before killing, rats received orogastric rhodamine B isothiocyanate-labeled dextran and 5 minutes later fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled dextran via a duodenal catheter. GI contents were collected for dye, bile acid, and hemoglobin (index of bleeding) determinations. RESULTS: LPS significantly impaired intestinal transit and increased duodenogastric bile reflux and gastric luminal hemoglobin content. Ketamine improved intestinal transit, prevented LPS-induced bile reflux, and diminished gastric bleeding. In mechanistic studies, ketamine also attenuated LPS-induced upregulation of the proinflammatory genes inducible nitric oxide synthase and cyclo-oxygenase-2 in the stomach but preserved expression of the anti-inflammatory gene heme-oxygenase-1 (Western blot). CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that ketamine may prevent LPS-induced gastric bleeding by decreasing bile reflux through improved intestinal transit or by local changes in nitric oxide, prostaglandin, and carbon monoxide metabolism.
