The low microcirculatory blood flow observed during sepsis further facilitates the interaction between inflammatory cells and the endothelium through prolonged exposure to leukocytes and inflammatory mediators, which amplify the local inflammatory response and renal injury. Coagulation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of sepsis. Inflammatory mediators such as endotoxin and cytokines may activate the coagulation cascade, which results in thrombin formation. Thrombin itself is a proinflammatory agent with the ability to activate inflammatory cells, which in turn produce cytokines, thus promoting an amplifying loop.
Treatment with a caspase-3 inhibitor was demonstrated to have a renoprotective effect in mice . Caspase-1 has the ability to activate interleukin-1β and interleukin-18, cytokines playing an important role in the inflammatory process occurring during septic acute kidney injury. Blocking the activation of these cytokines also had a renoprotective effect in mice . Moreover, in a murine sepsis model, combined inhibition of IL-1 and IL-18 protected animals against a lethal challenge with endotoxin .
