Abstract

Induction of allogeneic hematopoietic chimerism is a promising strategy to induce tolerance to donor islets for treating type 1 diabetes. Successful induction of chimerism requires overcoming host alloimmunity. In diabetes-prone nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice, this is challenging due to their general tolerance resistance. Although the adaptive alloimmunity of NOD mice is a known barrier to allogeneic chimerism, whether NOD natural killer (NK) cells are an additional barrier has not been examined. Because NOD NK cells exhibit functional defects, they may not inhibit chimerism generation. Antibody depletion of NK cells in vivo, or transplantation of F1 hybrid donor cells to eliminate the "missing-self" trigger of NK cells, was preformed to test the NK-mediated rejection of donor bone marrow cells. We also studied the capacity of rapamycin to block the NK cell response against allogeneic cells in vivo. Depleting NK cells or rendering them unresponsive to the donor greatly improved the level of chimerism obtained in NOD mice. Rapamycin significantly reduced the resistance to allogeneic chimerism mounted by NOD NK cells; however, it was much less effective than NK cell depletion by antibodies. Contrary to the view that NOD NK cells ar...Continue Reading

Patients with type I diabetes lack insulin-producing beta cells due to the loss of immunological tolerance and autoimmune disease. Discover the latest research on targeting tolerance to prevent diabetes.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
