REGiMMUNE Corporation to Present Its Method for Long-Term Tolerance in Organ Transplantation at World Transplant Congress in San Francisco
Jul 25 14
REGiMMUNE Corporation announced that it will present results from its research on its novel approach to long-term tolerance in organ transplantation without continuous administration of immune suppressants at the World Transplant Congress (WTC) on Tuesday, July 29, 2014. Robust, lifelong, donor-specific tolerance can be reliably achieved by induction of mixed chimerism in various animal models of bone transplantation. To date, the clinical application of these protocols has been impeded by the potential toxicity of the required host conditioning regimens. The REGiMMUNE poster presents the potential of a novel approach using a ligand alpha-GalCer (aGC) for iNKT cells and suboptimal dosage of antibody that blocks CD40:CD40L signaling as a powerful method to generate mixed chimerism. Invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells are one of the innate lymphocytes that regulate immunity, although it is still elusive how iNKT cells should be manipulated for transplant tolerance. It previously reported that the liposomal formulation of -galactosylceramide (Lipo-aGC) could enhance immune-regulative aspect of iNKT cells compared to the conventional aGC. Here describe a novel approach to induce mixed chimerism (MC) by activating iNKT cells with Lipo-aGC under CD40-CD40L blockade (MR1). 3Gy irradiated BALB/c mice were transplanted with B6 bone marrow cells (BMC s) with/without Lipo-aGC and/or several dosages of MR1. Only combination therapy of Lipo-aGC plus suboptimal-MR1 showed robust MC. Mice established MC completely accepted subsequent cardiac allografts in a donor-specific manner. High amounts of Th2-cytokines were detected right after iNKT-cell activation, while subsequent IFN- production by NK cells was effectively inhibited by MR1. Expansion of regulatory T cells (Tregs) was observed in MC mice and Treg-depletion on 1 day before transplantation resulted MC brake. Further, iNKT-cell knockout mice failed both MC establishment and Tregs expansion. These results collectively suggest that new protocol makes it possible to induce donor-specific tolerance by enhancement of the innate regulatory mechanism in place of the conventional immunosuppression.
