Abstract

<p>The aim of this work was to study the levels of the heart fatty acid-binding protein (h-FABP), interleukin6 (IL-6) and interleukin-8 (IL-8), in diabetic nephropathy (DN) in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Material and methods. We examined 87 patients aged 18 to 54 with T1DM within the study group. 30 patients with type 1 diabetes were diagnosed with normoalbuminuria, 29 patients – with microalbuminuria and 28 patients – with proteinuria. The control group consisted of 24 healthy donor aged 22 to 29. The comparison group included 22 patients aged 20 to 42 with verified diagnosis of essential arterial hypertension (AH) without carbohydrate metabolism disorders. The daily urinary albumin excretion was determined by immunoturbidimetric technique. 30 patients with type 1 diabetes were diagnosed with normoalbuminuria, 29 patients – with microalbuminuria and 28 patients with proteinuria.Calculation of glomerular filtration rate was performed according to the Hoek formula with the use of cystatinС serum concentrations. Contents of h-FABP, IL-6 and cystatin C in serum and h-FABP, IL-8 inurine were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Results. Analysis of the h-FABP content in serum showed that the concentration of this marker in individuals with T1DM was higher than in patients of the control group and the comparison group. Analysis of the h-FABP content in the urine revealed that individuals with essential hypertension showed an increased level of h-FABP while patients with T1DM demonstrated the highest concentration of h-FABP. The concentration of IL-6 inindividuals with T1DM and in individuals with AH significantly exceeded the control values. The contents of h-FABP and IL-6 inserum and h-FABP and IL-8 inurine increased with the progression of DN and reached maximum in individuals of the proteinuria subgroup. At the same time, the levels of h-FABP and IL-8 inthe urine of patients in the microalbuminuria (MAU) subgroup were higher compared to those in individuals of the normoalbuminuria (NAU) subgroup. Noteworthy is the fact that the h-FABP content in the urine of individuals in NAU subgroup was higher compared to the control group. Furthermore, higher rates of h-FABP and IL-8 urinary excretions were observed in individuals with CKD stage 2 as compared to individuals with CKD stage1 inthe MAU subgroup. Conclusion. Thus, the results obtained in the course of the study indicate that h-FABP and IL-8 can be considered as alternative markers of DN progression in patients with T1DM. </p
