Mixed Chimerism after Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell

Background: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is the most effective curative option for patients with thalassemia major (TM). Early post-transplant mixed chimerism (MC) has known to be a predictor of secondary graft rejection. However, the impact of the persisting mixed chimerism on transplant outcome remains controversial Mixed chimerism refers to continued mixing of donor and recipient hematopoietic cells in recipient tissues after transplantation of donor cells. To determine whether persistent mixed chimerism and tolerance can be established in patients undergoing living donor kidney transplantation, we infused allograft recipients with donor T cells and. Hemopoietic stem cell transplantation (SCT) often establishes mixed chimerism in which immune cells from both the donor and patient coexist in vivo in a setting of immunological tolerance. We studied immune function in 69 patients within 2 months following SCT; 37 were fully donor and 32 displayed mixed chimerism Mixed chimerism refers to a state in which the lymphohematopoietic system of the recipient of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cells comprises a mixture of host and donor cells. This state is usually attained through either bone marrow or mobilized peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. Although numerous treatment regimens have led to. Another STR analysis was performed which showed mixed chimerism (donor and receptor cells coexisting), indicating relapse of the disease. Chimerism was quantified using the area under the curve peaks of the electropherogram as per Kristt et al.4using five informative loci of STRs and the result was 52.62% donor chimerism

Mixed chimerism and acceptance of kidney transplants after

  1. Understanding when mixed chimerism is an indication of secondary graft failure or impending graft rejection vs a state of tolerance and ongoing propensity for the establishment of a graft-vs-tumor.
  2. e the effect of mixed T lymphocyte chimerism on the risk of relapse after transplantation in patients with AML or MDS. In this single-institution retrospective analysis, we report the largest study to date to our knowledge investigating the potential utility of T lymphocyte chimerism analysis between post-transplantation day +90 to +120 in predicting relapse for AML/MDS.
  3. Mixed chimerism (MC) is mainly evaluated to define engraftment and relapse. Detection of MC is a prerequisite in both myeloablative and nonmyeloablative HSCT, in order to assess the graft status..
  4. ant donor chimerism precedes hematologic recovery. A persistently low level of donor chimerism in whole blood, T cells,.
  5. Abstract. Studies from our laboratories over the past 15 years have demonstrated in several preclinical animal models that long-term tolerance to organ allografts can be achieved through the induction of mixed lymphohematopoietic chimerism. The present proposal is designed to extend these studies to a clinical protocol for renal transplantation.

Of 157 samples with donor and recipient DNA, mixed chimerism (MC) was detected solely by dPCR in 66 samples. Within the group of patients relapsing after HSCT (n=32) MC was detected earlier in 15 of these patients with dPCR in comparison with STR-PCR A similar kind of chimerism can occur when a person receives a blood transfusion, stem cell transplant, or bone marrow transplant from another person and absorbs some of that person's cells. This.. Mixed chimerism - the continued mixing of donor and recipient blood cells following a transplant of blood progenitor cells - could improve outcomes for kidney transplant recipients, according to a.

Introducing the donor's immune cells into the patient creates a condition called mixed chimerism where immune cells from the patient and the donor are able to co-exist Mixed T cell chimerism is frequent after reduced-intensity conditioning and particularly common after TCD with alemtuzumab . Our investigation of mixed chimerism within T cell subsets found that CD4 T cells were mainly donor-derived by 1 year but that CD8 T cells remained predominantly recipient-derived The recipients developed stable mixed chimerism as indicated by coexistence of donor- and host-type T cells, B cells, macrophages, and granulocytes in the blood, spleen, and BM at 80 days after HCT, the end of experiments (Supplemental Figure 4, A-C) pient chimerism is a dynamic process early after HSCT. The status of MC may be transient mixed chimerism (TMC), which can evolve, towards graft failure or to completely donor chimerism (DC) [9,11,15-17]. However, some patients develop stable MC, which has mainly been reported in patients with nonmalig-nant hematological diseases include AA. Mixed chimerism was reported in the remaining 47 patients (range, 10% to 94%). The lowest documented donor chimerism without symptomatic disease was 26%. Of 12 surviving patients with recurrent disease, 2 had recurrence of symptoms before documented graft failure (donor chimerism of 11% and 17%, respectively)..

As expected, mixed chimerism was observed in all recipients of nonirradiated BMCs, but not in the recipients of irradiated BMCs. Despite the presence of host B cells in mixed chimeras at 2 weeks (mean: 42.7 ± 4.7% of splenic CD19 + cells), cells producing anti-Gal (IgM or IgG) were undetectable in the spleens of mixed chimeras by ELISPOT assay Establishment of mixed hematopoietic chimerism carries with it the induction of transplantation tolerance to any other tissue or organ from the same donor. This strategy has been studied extensively for induction of tolerance in mice. During the past decade, we have extended the same strategy, with modifications, to cynomolgus monkeys and most. Promoting mixed chimerism promising in kidney transplants (HealthDay)—For patients undergoing living kidney transplants, persistent mixed chimerism can be achieved to allow complete or partial.. Although studies of mixed chimerism following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) may provide insights into the engraftment needed to correct the disease and into immunological reconstitution, an extensive multilineage analysis is lacking. We analyzed chimerism simultaneously in peripheral erythroid and granulomonocytic precursors/progenitors. Induction of mixed chimerism via donor bone marrow transplantation (DBMT) is a reproducible and effective approach to achieving allograft TOL. 16, 17 We have developed a conditioning regimen, based on murine studies, that achieves long-term immunosuppression-free renal allograft survival in nonhuman primates.

However, observations in HLA-mismatched kidney transplant recipients that transient mixed chimerism can be sufficient to ensure indefinite graft survival have suggested that, 1 in humans, immunoregulatory mechanisms are likely to play a role in the long-term protection of the allograft In a canine model, establishing mixed hematopoietic chimerism prevented clinical rejection of lung grafts and activation of both effector and regulatory immune responses Tetragametic chimerism is a form of congenital chimerism. This condition occurs through the fertilization of two separate ova by two sperm, followed by aggregation of the two at the blastocyst or zygote stages. This results in the development of an organism with intermingled cell lines


Although these recipients developed significantly superior mixed chimerism and more prolonged islet allograft survival (61, 103, and 113 days), islet function was lost soon after the disappearance of chimerism. In Islet C recipients, neither prolonged chimerism nor islet survival was observed (30 and 40 days) Long-term stable mixed chimerism is a rare and poorly understood phenomenon post hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. This study aims to shed light on whether the two hematopoietic systems in patients with mixed chimerism remain functional Mixed chimerism and tolerance induction Judith Shizuru Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation Stanford University Medical Center . Blood Chimerism •Old idea which has been shown over decades to be the most robust way to achieve donor specific immune toleranc

mixed chimerism is considered to be associated with a reduced existing GVL effect in this patient category. In patients with acute leukemia the situation is not as clear-cut. Some . studies could show that mixed chimerism after SCT had no correlation with malignant relapse [49,50] while others found the opposite [51,52] Purpose We recently reported that children with acute leukemias who show increasing mixed chimerism (MC) after allogeneic stem-cell transplantation have a significantly enhanced risk of relapse. Here we present the results of a prospective multicenter study to investigate (1) whether relapse of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) can be determined in advance by serial analysis of chimerism, and. To assess risk factors of mixed chimerism and to evaluate possible correlations between mixed chimerism and transplantation outcomes. Methods A total of 618 patients with thalassemia major (TM) underwent allogeneic HSCT from December2008 until December 2019 were identified with median age of 6 years old (1-23) and median follow up time of 70. Mixed chimerism can be induced in adult mice by reconstituting lethally irradiated animals with a mixture of T cell-depleted allogeneic and host-type marrow, by administering allogeneic marrow following treatment with high doses of total lymphoid irradiation, or with non-myeloablative regimens (see below) Mixed chimerism (MC) and/or secondary graft failure (SGF) with recipient- or donor-type chimerism is a major obstacle in allogeneic transplantation for aplastic anemia (AA). From a registry database in Japan, patients with AA age >15 years who underwent a first allogeneic bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplantation between 2000.

Mixed chimerism established by hematopoietic stem cell

  1. Since induction of mixed chimerism with autoimmune-resistant H-2 b/g7 F 1 versus autoimmune-susceptible H-2 s/g7 F 1 donors was equally effective at curing T1D in NOD mice, we only tested induction of mixed chimerism with H-2 s/g7 F 1 donors in the adult Thymec-NOD mice. The same conditioning regimen of ATG + CY + PT used for euthymic NOD mice.
  2. In nonmalignant hematologic disorders, mixed chimerism after HCT may herald graft loss. It has been shown in patients with thalassemia that the presence of large amounts of residual host cells within the first 2 months is a risk factor for graft rejection and that mixed chimerism in general may be associated with poor outcome

Induction of Tolerance through Mixed Chimeris

Quantification of mixed chimerism allows early therapeutic

Moreover, although induction of mixed chimerism with MHC-mismatched BM transplants has been shown to eliminate insulitis, augment residual β cell proliferation, and reverse new-onset diabetes in NOD mice , induction of mixed chimerism alone was not able to reverse late-stage T1D (7, 9) After mixed chimerism was established, swine leukocyte antigen-matched (SLA-matched) donor skin grafts were tolerated and maintained for a prolonged period, whereas third-party SLA-matched skin was rejected promptly. Donor-matched kidney allografts were also accepted without additional immunosuppression Cure of autoimmune type 1 diabetes (T1D) requires both reversal of autoimmunity and regeneration or resupply of insulin-producing β cells. We have observed that combination therapy with induction of haploidentical mixed chimerism and administration of gastrin and epidermal growth factor (EGF) cures firmly established T1D. The predominant source of β cell regeneration in mice comes from.

Mixed chimerism, a persistent or increasing number of host cells, after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (allo-HSCT) is a predictor of disease relapse. Donor lymphocyte infusion (DLI) has the potential to enhance the graft vs. malignancy effect and reduce the risk of relapse in patients with mixed chimerism (MC) and in patients at. Long-term stable mixed chimerism is a rare and poorly understood phenomenon post hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. This study aims to shed light on whether the two hematopoietic systems in patients with mixed chimerism remain functional. Additionally, we investigate possible immunologic differences in these individuals compared to patients with only donor derived immune cells Chimerism was tested using short tandem repeat polymorphisms after separation into mononuclear cells and granulocytes by Ficoll density gradient centrifugation. Of 155 patients studied, 89 had full chimerism (FC), 36 mononuclear cells mixed chimerism (MNC-MC), and 30 granulocytic MC with or without mononuclear cells MC (Gran-MC) RESULTS Mixed hematopoietic chimerism in NOD mice treated with nonmyeloablative conditioning. Spontaneously diabetic 17- to 21-week-old female NOD mice were conditioned with anti-CD4 (days −6 and -1), anti-CD8.1α (days −1, 0, 1, 6, 7, and 8), anti-Thy1.2 (days −6 and −1), and anti-CD40L (day 0) mAbs, and 4 Gy TBI (day 0)

notherapy to mixed chimerism inducing regimens. However, they also raise the question of why costimulation blockade plus rapamy-cin, shown to expand and strengthen the endogenous Treg compart - ment across a variety of different models, fails to do so in mixed chimerism recipients Mixed chimerism refers to a state in which the lymphohematopoietic system of the recipient of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cells comprises a mixture of host and donor cells. This state is usually attained through either bone marrow or mobilized peripheral blood stem cell transplantation Researchers have found that transplanting both bone marrow and a kidney from the same donor can create what is called mixed chimerism. This means that the transplant recipient has a mixture of the donor and recipient's immune systems. It is believed that this mixture of immune cells can prevent rejection of the kidney In earlier murine studies, induction of durable mixed chimerism was required for induction of MHC fully mismatched skin allograft tolerance . Stable chimerism in those studies led to persistent deletion of anti-donor T cells in the thymus, while transient chimerism failed to induce skin allograft tolerance (13-15). However, when similar.

Organ transplantation is a medical procedure in which an organ is removed from one body and placed in the body of a recipient, to replace a damaged or missing organ. The donor and recipient may be at the same location, or organs may be transported from a donor site to another location. Organs and/or tissues that are transplanted within the same person's body are called autografts Abstract. Clinical trials are currently testing whether induction of haploidentical mixed chimerism (Haplo-MC) induces organ transplantation tolerance. Whether Haplo-MC can be used to treat established autoimmune diseases remains unknown. Here, we show that established autoimmunity in euthymic and adult-thymectomized NOD (H-2g7) mice was cured. Mixed chimerism was confirmed in mice that received sirolimus and PT-Cy (Figures 2e and f). Mice that received sirolimus and CSA with CSA doses ranging from 5 to 7.5 mg/kg per day displayed donor myeloid chimerism levels of 25-30% and lymphoid chimerism levels of 10% at 2 weeks post transplant. They subsequently rejected their grafts starting.

Reversal of autoimmunity by mixed chimerism enables reactivation of β cells and transdifferentiation of α cells in diabetic NOD mice Shanshan Tanga,b,c, Mingfeng Zhang b,c, Samuel Zengb,c,d, Yaxun Huangb,c,e, Melissa Qinf , Ubaydah Nasri , Pere Santamariag,h, Arthur D.

Although these recipients developed significantly superior mixed chimerism and more prolonged islet allograft survival (61, 103, and 113 days), islet function was lost soon after the disappearance of chimerism. In Islet C recipients, neither prolonged chimerism nor islet survival was observed (30 and 40 days) The remainder had stable mixed chimerism. T-cell chimerism was significantly better with fludarabine. Long-term follow-up is required, but in combination with fludarabine, treosulfan is a good.

Mixed T Cell Chimerism After Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem

We expect to initiate a Phase 2 proof-of-concept trial of MDR-103 in these patients. The primary efficacy endpoint is the proportion of subjects achieving persistent mixed chimerism, defined as achieving mixed chimerism for at least six months. We also intend to explore delayed therapy in HLA-mismatched kidney transplant recipients BACKGROUND: Induction of mixed chimerism is currently the most promising concept for clinical tolerance induction; however, the toxicity of the required host conditioning for allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) should be overcome. Therefore, we explored tolerogenic effectiveness of megadose BMT with anti-CD45RB and anti-CD154 mAb (two-signal blockade) in murine recipients without. BACKGROUND: The mixed chimerism approach induces donor-specific tolerance in both pre-clinical models and clinical pilot trials. However, chronic rejection of heart allografts and acute rejection of skin allografts were observed in some chimeric animals despite persistent hematopoietic chimerism and tolerance toward donor antigens in vitro

Chimerism: Cell populations derived from different individuals; may be mixed or complete. Ex vivo: Occurring outside of the living body. Refers to a medical procedure in which an organ, cells, or tissue are taken from a living body for a treatment or procedure, and then returned to the living body Chimerism 3(1): 24-28. Abstract We have previously reported that peri-transplant conditioning leads to successful induction of renal allograft tolerance via the mixed chimerism approach in nonhuman primates (NHP) and humans Mixed chimerism was detected in GalT KO recipients of a mixture of WT and KO BMC at all time points studied. The proportion of WT donor cells increased in these mice between 2 and 8 wk after bone marrow transplantation (BMT), and was subsequently maintained at a steady state The significance of very early chimerism assessment before day + 28, which is considered the moment of engraftment, is still unclear. In this retrospective study, we evaluated the clinical impact of very early chimerism on the clinical outcome after allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) in children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL)
