OBJECTIVES: Oxidative stress has a clear pro tumoral effect in myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPDs). In this study, we analyzed oxidative stress in patients with essential thrombocythemia (ET) and polycythemia vera (PV). Design and methods We analyzed serum levels of advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs) degradation, advanced glycation end products (AGEs), and protein nitrosylation in ET and PV patients. We also evaluated neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) levels, an acute phase protein isolated in human neutrophils, the activation status of platelets and leukocytes, and the JAK2 (V617F) mutation status. RESULTS: AOPPs and s-nitrosylated proteins were significantly higher in PV and ET subjects as compared to healthy volunteers, while AGEs were higher in ET subjects with respect to controls. Moreover, in PV patients we found a correlation between s-nitrosylated proteins and Hb value. In ET patients AGEs were significantly higher in patients with thrombosis compared with those without thrombotic events. CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that oxidative stress could play a role in the physiopathology of MPDs and in the onset of myeloproliferative associated thrombotic risk.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: Oxidative stress has a clear pro tumoral effect in myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPDs). In this study, we analyzed oxidative stress in patients with essential thrombocythemia (ET) and polycythemia vera (PV). Design and methods We analyzed serum levels of advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs) degradation, advanced glycation end products (AGEs), and protein nitrosylation in ET and PV patients. We also evaluated neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) levels, an acute phase protein isolated in human neutrophils, the activation status of platelets and leukocytes, and the JAK2 (V617F) mutation status. RESULTS: AOPPs and s-nitrosylated proteins were significantly higher in PV and ET subjects as compared to healthy volunteers, while AGEs were higher in ET subjects with respect to controls. Moreover, in PV patients we found a correlation between s-nitrosylated proteins and Hb value. In ET patients AGEs were significantly higher in patients with thrombosis compared with those without thrombotic events. CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that oxidative stress could play a role in the physiopathology of MPDs and in the onset of myeloproliferative associated thrombotic risk.
