dc.description.abstractAntithrombin is known as the most important natural coagulation inhibitor and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. the present study aimed to investigate the effects of Bothrops jararaca antithrombin on acute inflammation induced by carrageenan in mice.We evaluated the anti-inflammatory activity of antithrombin on models of paw edema formation, cell migration and leukocyte-endothelium interaction in mice (Swiss; n = 5). Acute inflammation was induced by the administration of carrageenan (15 mg kg(-1)).Treatment with B. jararaca antithrombin (1 mg kg(-1)) 1 h before or after carrageenan administration significantly inhibited paw edema formation, reduced cell influx to the peritoneal cavity due to reduction in the migration of polymorphonuclear cells, and attenuated leukocyte rolling in the microcirculation of the cremaster muscle.The effects of antithrombin on vascular and cellular events of inflammation were completely abolished by treatment with the cyclo-oxygenase inhibitor indomethacin (4 mg kg(-1)), suggesting the involvement of prostacyclin in the mechanism of inflammation inhibition by B. jararaca antithrombin.This work showed for the first time the anti-inflammatory properties of B. jararaca antithrombin on vascular and cellular events of inflammation. These findings suggest that antithrombin is effective in preventing paw edema formation, cell migration and leukocyte rolling induced by carrageenan in mice.en
