Sažetak
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of infection with Leptospira spp. in horses on activities of platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH) and paraoxonase-1 (PON1) considering the anti-inflammatory/anti-oxidative properties of both enzymes. A total of 63 sport and leisure horses’ sera were chosen among those routinely serologically examined on leptospirosis during the year 2009 in Croatia. Sera were divided into three groups according to the estimated level of antibody titre against Leptospira spp ; Group 1: sera serologically negative to leptospirosis (antibody titre < 50), (n=21) ; Group 2: sera with residual or anamnestic antibody titre (50-200), (n=23) ; Group 3: sera with high antibody titre (>1600) indicating recent Leptospira infection (n=19). Serum PAF-AH and PON1 activity was not significantly different between investigated groups (p>0.05). There were no statistical differences in lipid status parameters (p>0.05) among study groups as well. However, significant positive correlations (p<0.05) of PAF-AH and PON1 with total cholesterol and HDL-C were found. Results may indicate low levels of systemic inflammatory response and oxidative stress in horses with subclinical leptospirosis. Further studies with clinically manifested disease are needed to elucidate the potential role of PAF-AH and PON1 as prognostic markers of the leptospirosis outcome.
