About the Edition

Heart transplantation in our days has become an accepted therapy for end stage heart failure. However, decreasing numbers of donor organs and lifelong immunosuppressive therapy with undesirable side-effects for graft and recipient enforce the need for new treatment strategies. Therefore developing a protocol leading to acceptance of grafts from any potential organ donor without global immunodeficiency or immunosuppression is a major goal in transplant-related research.Our previous work demonstrated a novel pattern of "non-donor-specific" cardiac allograft acceptance induced in mice injected as neonates with allogeneic fetal liver cells.Our work shows that in this setting transferable CD4 +CD25+Foxp3+ T cells mediate unrelated cardiac graft acceptance in a dose- and cell-contact-dependent manner. These regulatory cells seem to be induced by the cardiac graft and appear to mediate in vivo acceptance of cardiac tissue specifically.This project was aimed to explore in more detail this unexpected pattern of third-party cardiac allograft acceptance.

Rejection correlated with graft infiltration by T cells and splenic production of IFN‐γ upon allostimulation. These results indicate that T‐cell inhibition of NF‐κB results in cardiac allograft acceptance because of increased susceptibility to Fas‐mediated cell death. Finally, Vγ1+ and Vγ4+ T cells did not produce IL, although both represent 20% to 30% total graft infiltrating γδ T cells. The γδ T cells promote acute cardiac allograft rejection.

  Graft rejection by the immune system is a major cause of transplant failure. Lifelong immunosuppression decreases the incidence of graft rejection; however, nonspecific immunosuppression results in increased susceptibly to infection and cancer. Regulatory T cells (Tregs), which suppress the activation of the immune system and induce tolerance, are currently under evaluation for use in clinical. In allograft rejection, the engagement of recipient and donor cells results in recruitment of T-helper (Th) cells of the Th1 and Th17 lineage to the graft. In cases in which the alloresponse is dominated by regulatory T cells (Tregs), rejection can be prevented and the allograft tolerated with minimum or no immunosuppression.

These mechanisms induce proliferation and differentiation of T cell subsets, thus increasing IL‐2 production, with the end result of inflammation and tissue destruction Additionally, lenalidomide and pomalidomide have been shown to strongly inhibit the proliferation of FOXP3+ CTLA‐4+CD4+CD25 high T‐regulatory cells (Tregs) in vitro

The regulatory T cells are able to inhibit the function of T cells carrying the same T-cell receptor specificity and prevent skin allograft rejection in an antigen-specific, dose-dependent manner. In conclusion, we have demonstrated that cardiac allograft acceptance in our model is regulated by CD4 + T cells.

These cells may persist within the graft for long periods of time without causing graft damage or failure. The regulatory cell population is induced by the graft and appears to be by: 7.

Cell surface markers indicating T eff cellular activation have been studied comprehensively; however, few studies have reported on expression of activation markers by T select alloantigen-specific T regs, we hypothesized that by exposing a polyclonal pool of T regs to an allogeneic stimulator, T regs with Cited by: In host thymus, F1-donor dendritic cells (DC) interact with developing thymocytes and regulatory T cells suggesting a role in negative selection.

There is a large body of evidence that a population of Foxp3 + regulatory T cells is induced or expanded in many experimental models of transplantation tolerance Active suppression by regulatory T cells has been found to be one of the important mechanisms for induction and maintenance of self‐tolerance and unresponsiveness to allograft   Background It is well known that CD4 + CD25 + regulatory T (Treg) cells play a central role in the suppression of autoimmunity, inflammation and allograft rejection.

Therefore, therapeutic agents that capable of enhancing the number and activity of this T-cell subset are highly desirable. T Regulatory cells (Treg) play an important role in the induction and maintenance of immunological tolerance to self and alloantigens.

Recent findings in experimental transplant models have demonstrated that Treg can control acute and delayed allograft rejection.

These results suggested that the CD4 + CD25 + T-cell subset plays a major role in transferable allograft acceptance induced by DBT combined with a ICOS/B7h blockade in allorecognition. Download: Download high-res image (KB) Download: Download full-size image; Fig 2.

Here, we. Corneal allografts placed in vascularized or inflamed host beds are at increased risk of graft rejection due to the preponderance of activated immune cells in the host bed. Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are master regulators of the adaptive immune response and play a key role in the induction of immune tolerance.

Studies further showed that tolerance is induced through cross-presentation of Ag in a class I MHC-dependent manner by CD8(+)CD11c(+) lymphoid-derived dendritic cells to regulatory T cells. Cardiac allograft rejection was restored in IκBαΔN-Tg mice overexpressing the anti-apoptotic factor Bcl-x L selectively in T cells, suggesting that cardiac allograft antigens induced cell death of NF-κB-impaired alloreactive T cells.
