IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 synergy induces elevated and prolonged IFN-γ production by ex vivo expanded NK cells which is not due to enhanced STAT4 activation.

The synergistic effect of IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 stimulation potently activates NK cells, inducing high levels of IFN-γ production. As a result of this potent stimulatory effect, NK cell pre-activation with IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 is being developed as a cancer immunotherapy. Ex vivo expansion of NK cells enables the efficient generation of large numbers of NK cells for wide-scale and repeated therapeutic use, and is thus an important source of NK cells for clinical application. However, the effects of IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 stimulation on ex vivo expanded NK cells have not yet been assessed. Thus, the present study assessed the effects of IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 stimulation on NK cells expanded ex vivo using K562-based artificial antigen presenting cells expressing membrane-bound IL-21. We report that ex vivo expanded NK cells stimulated with IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 produce high levels of IFN-γ and TNFα, have potent cytotoxicity, and maintain prolonged IFN-γ production following removal of stimulation. IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 stimulation induces a phenotypically unique IFN-γ-producing population with reduced CD16 expression and greater CD25 expression as compared to stimulated IFN-γ- NK cells and unstimulated NK cells. We elucidate that the mechanism of synergy for induction and maintenance of IFN-γ production is not due to a further enhancement of STAT4 activation compared to stimulation with IL-12 alone. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the synergistic increase in IFN-γ is not solely under translational regulation, as elevated levels of IFN-γ mRNA contribute to the synergistic increase in IFN-γ. Overall, this study characterizes the response of ex vivo expanded NK cells to IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 stimulation and supports the use of ex vivo expanded NK cells as a feasible and efficient source of IL-18/IL-15/IL-12 pre-activated NK cells for adoptive transfer in cancer immunotherapies. - Source :PubMed


Here, we report a new species of Sarcocystis with red-tailed hawk (RTH) as the natural definitive host and IFN-γ gene knockout (KO) mice as an experimental intermediate host in which sarcocysts form in muscle. Two RTHs submitted to the Carolina Raptor Center, Huntersville, North Carolina, were euthanized because they could not be rehabilitated and released. Fully sporulated 12.5 x 9.9 m sized sporocysts were found in intestinal scrapings of both hawks. Sporocysts were orally fed to laboratory-reared outbred Swiss Webster mice (SW) (Mus musculus) and also to KO mice. The sporocysts were infective for KO mice, but not to SW mice. All SW mice remained asymptomatic, and neither schizonts nor sarcocysts were found in any SW mice euthanized on day 54, 77, 103 (n = 2) or 137 post-inoculation (PI). The KO mice developed neurological signs, and were necropsied between 52 to 68 days PI. Schizonts/merozoites were found in all KO mice euthanized on day 52, 55 (n = 3), 59, 61 (n = 2), 66, and 68 PI, and they were confined to the brain. The predominant lesion was meningoencephalitis, characterized by perivascular cuffs, granulomas, and necrosis of the neural tissue. The schizonts/merozoites were located in neural tissue, and were apparently extravascular. Brain homogenates from infected KO mice were infective to KO mice by subcutaneous inoculation and when seeded on to CV-1 cells. Microscopic sarcocysts were found in skeletal muscles of 5 of 8 KO mice euthanized between 55-61 days PI. Only a few sarcocysts were detected. Sarcocysts were microscopic, up to 3.5 mm long. When viewed with light microscopy, the sarcocyst wall appeared thin (<1 m thick) and smooth. By transmission electron microscopy, the sarcocyst wall classified as "type 1j" (new designation). Molecular characterization using 18S rRNA, 28S rRNA, ITS-1, and cox1 genes revealed a close relationship with Sarcocystis microti, and Sarcocystis glareoli; both species infect birds. The parasite in the present study was biologically and molecularly different from species so far described in RTH and we therefore propose a new species name Sarcocystis jamaicensis n. sp. - Source :PubMed

Combination Treatment with PPARγ Ligand and Its Specific Inhibitor GW9662 Downregulates BIS and 14-3-3 Gamma, Inhibiting Stem-Like Properties in Glioblastoma Cells.

PPARγ is a nuclear receptor that regulates differentiation and proliferation and is highly expressed in many cancer cells. Its synthetic ligands, such as rosiglitazone and ciglitazone, and its inhibitor GW9662, were shown to induce cellular differentiation, inhibit proliferation, and lead to apoptosis. Glioblastoma is a common brain tumor with poor survival prospects. Recently, glioblastoma stem cells (GSCs) have been examined as a potential target for anticancer therapy; however, little is known about the combined effect of various agents on GSCs. In this study, we found that cotreatment with PPARγ ligands and GW9662 inhibited stem-like properties in GSC-like spheres, which significantly express SOX2. In addition, this treatment decreased the activation of STAT3 and AKT and decreased the amounts of 14-3-3 gamma and BIS proteins. Moreover, combined administration of small-interfering RNA (siRNA) transfection with PPARγ ligands induced downregulation of SOX2 and MMP2 activity together with inhibition of sphere-forming activity regardless of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) cleavage. Taken together, our findings suggest that a combination therapy using PPARγ ligands and its inhibitor could be a potential therapeutic strategy targeting GSCs. - Source :PubMed

Strain- and Dose-Dependent Reduction of Toxoplasma gondii Burden in Pigs Is Associated with Interferon-Gamma Production by CD8(+) Lymphocytes in a Heterologous Challenge Model.

Toxoplasma gondii is a worldwide prevalent parasite of humans and animals. The global infection burden exceeds yearly one million disability-adjusted life years (DALY's) in infected individuals. Therefore, effective preventive measures should be taken to decrease the risk of infection in humans. Although human toxoplasmosis is predominantly foodborne by ingestion of tissue cysts in meat from domestic animals such as pigs, the incidence risk is difficult to estimate due to the lack of screening of animals for infection and insights in location and persistence of the parasite in the tissues. Hence, experimental infections in pigs can provide more information on the risk for zoonosis based on the parasite burden in meat products intended for human consumption and on the immune responses induced by infection. In the present study, homo- and heterologous infection experiments with two distinct T. gondii strains (IPB-LR and IPB-Gangji) were performed. The humoral and cellular immune responses, the presence of viable parasites and the parasite load in edible meat samples were evaluated. In homologous infection experiments the parasite persistence was clearly strain-dependent and inversely correlated with the infection dose. The results strongly indicate a change in the amount of parasite DNA and viable cysts in porcine tissues over time. Heterologous challenge infections demonstrated that IPB-G strain could considerably reduce the parasite burden in the subsequent IPB-LR infection. A strong, however, not protective humoral response was observed against GRA7 and TLA antigens upon inoculation with both strains. The in vitro IFN-γ production by TLA-stimulated PBMCs was correlated with the infection dose and predominantly brought about by CD3(+)CD4(-)CD8α(bright) T-lymphocytes. The described adaptive cellular and humoral immune responses in pigs are in line with the induced or natural infections in mice and humans. Previous studies underscored the heterogeneity of T. gondii strains and the corresponding virulence factors. These findings suggest the potential of the IPB-G strain to elicit a partially protective immune response and to reduce the parasite burden upon a challenge infection. The IPB-G strain could be used as a promising tool in limiting the number of viable parasites in edible tissues and, hence, in lowering the risk for human toxoplasmosis. - Source :PubMed

MHC class II invariant chain peptide or gamma-delta T cell depletion ameliorates experimental preeclampsia.

Excessive innate immune system activation and inflammation during pregnancy can lead to organ injury and dysfunction and preeclampsia; however, the molecular mechanisms involved are unknown.  We tested the hypothesis that Toll-like receptor activation induces MHC class II invariant chain peptide (CLIP) expression on immune cells, makes them pro-inflammatory, and are necessary to cause preeclampsia-like features in mice.  Treatment with VG1177, a competitive antagonist peptide for CLIP in the groove of MHC class II, was able to both prevent and treat preeclampsia-like features in mice.  We then determined that gamma-delta T cells are critical for the development of preeclampsia-like features in mice since gamma-delta T cell knockout mice, like CLIP deficient mice, are resistant to developing preeclampsia-like features.  Placentas from women with preeclampsia exhibit significantly increased levels of gamma-delta T cells.  These preclinical data demonstrate that CLIP expression and activated gamma-delta T cells are responsible for the development of immunologic preeclampsia-like features and that temporarily antagonizing CLIP and/or gamma-delta T cells may be a therapeutic strategy for preeclampsia. - Source :PubMed
