The systemic inflammatory response triggered by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is associated with cerebral vasoconstriction, but the underlying mechanisms are unknown. We therefore examined whether a 4-hour intravenous LPS infusion (0.3 ng·kg-1) induces any changes in the transcerebral net exchange of the vasoactive peptides endothelin-1 (ET-1) and calcitonin-gene related peptide (CGRP) and catecholamines in human volunteers. Cerebral blood flow was measured by the Kety-Schmidt technique, and paired arterial-to-jugular venous blood samples were obtained for estimating the transcerebral exchange of ET-1, CGRP, and catecholamines by the Fick principle in 12 volunteers before and after LPS infusion. The cerebrovascular release of ET-1 was enhanced, whereas the transcerebral net exchange of CGRP and catecholamines was unaffected. Our findings thus point towards locally produced ET-1 within the cerebrovasculature as a contributor to cerebral vasoconstriction after LPS infusion.
