Resumo

Platelet activation and platelet-derived cytokines contribute to the vascular inflammation and increased thrombotic activity known to occur in patients with sickle cell anemia (SCA). CD40 ligand (CD4OL), a platelet associated pro-inflammatory molecule that promotes endothelial cell activation, is elevated in the circulation of SCA patients. We sought to evaluate the association of CD4OL and inflammation with sickle-related clinical complications and laboratory variables in SCA patients. Soluble CD4OL, thrombospondin (TSP)-1 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha were determined in the platelet-poor plasma of healthy individuals and steady-state SCA patients by ELISA. Lifetime clinical complications were verified by detailed review of patients' medical records. We found that plasma CD4OL was associated with acute chest syndrome (ACS), and that SCA patients with a lifetime history of ACS (ACS+) presented significantly higher plasma CD4OL and TSP-1 than patients who had never experienced ACS (ACS-). In the ACS+ group, both platelet:derived proteins (CD4OL and TSP-1) correlated with mean corpuscular volume, mean corpuscular hemoglobin and reticulocyte hemoglobin, while in the ACS group, CD4OL correlated with low red blood cell counts, hemoglobin, hematocrit and lactate dehydrogenase, and TSP-1 correlated with reticulocyte percentage and white blood cell count. As expected, CD4OL and TSP-1 correlated with platelet counts in both groups. These data highlight the possible role of platelet activation in ACS and suggest that plasma sCD4OL, together with TSP-1, may represent a potential marker of susceptibility to ACS in SCA. (AU)
