Effects of Early Enteral Nutrition Supplemented with Collagen Peptides on Post-Burn Inflammatory Responses in Mice Model

Abstract

The effect of early enteral nutrition (EN) supplemented with Alaska pollock skin-derived collagen peptides (CPs) on post-burn inflammatory responses was investigated in mice model. Male blab/c mice were randomly assigned to four groups: a sham burn (SB) group, a control group (burn + EN + glycine, BE), a positive control group (burn + EN + glutamine, BEG) and a treatment group (burn + EN + CPs, BEC). Burn-induced increases of serum endotoxin level, systemic and intestinal concentration of TNF-α and IL-6 were attenuated in BEG and BEC at post-burn day (PBD) 1, 3 and 7 (p < 0.05 vs. BE). Notably, BEC revealed a prominent decrease of the serum endotoxin, TNF-α and IL-6 as compared to BEG at PBD 7 (p < 0.05). Furthermore, EN supplemented with CPs diminished the phosphorylation of intestinal NF-κB p65 and simultaneously down-regulated the mRNA expression of TNF-α and IL-6 in small intestine (p < 0.05 vs. BE). Overall, demonstrated a comparable effect with glutamine in ameliorating post-burn inflammatory responses in burned mice. Therefore, CPs could be considered as a potential immunonutrient supplemented in EN to improve post-burn outcomes in burn patients.
