Smoking-related lung diseases are among the leading causes of death worldwide, underscoring the need to understand their pathogenesis and develop new effective therapies. We have shown that CD1a+ antigen-presenting cells (APCs) from lungs of patients with emphysema can induce autoreactive T helper 1 (TH1) and TH17 cells. Similarly, the canonical cytokines interferon-γ (IFN-γ) and interleukin-17A (IL-17A) are specifically linked to lung destruction in smokers, but how smoke activates APCs to medi...

Chronic GVHD (cGVHD) is a main cause of late death and morbidity after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation, but its pathogenesis remains unclear. We investigated the roles of Th subsets in cGVHD with the use of a well-defined mouse model of cGVHD. In this model, development of cGVHD was associated with up-regulated Th1, Th2, and Th17 responses. Th1 and Th2 responses were up-regulated early after BM transplantation, followed by a subsequent up-regulation of Th17 cells. Significantly gre...

Summary Background Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive disorder characterized by an inflammatory response to cigarette smoke. A disorder in immune regulation contributing to the pathogenesis of COPD has been suggested, however, little is known about the involvement of CD4 + T cells. To determine the distribution of different CD4 + T cell subsets in patients with COPD, current smokers without COPD (CS) and healthy subjects (HS), and its correlation with pulmonary functio...

Polarization of naive T cells in a certain functional direction is influenced not only by antigen type and concentration, but also by co-stimulatory signals, the local cytokine environment and transcription factors that activate or inhibit specific T cell lineage programs through positive or negative feedback loops. Interleukin-25 (IL-25) is a recently identified member of the IL-17 cytokine family. It has the ability to influence innate and adaptative immunity. Within the IL-17 family, IL-25 po...

Most of the studies investigating the effectiveness of blocking the leukotriene B4 (LTB4) receptor 1 (BLT1) have been performed in models of primary or acute allergen challenge. The role of the LTB4-BLT1 pathway in secondary challenge models, where airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) and airway inflammation have been established, has not been defined. We investigated the effects of blocking BLT1 on early- and late-phase development of AHR and airway inflammation in previously sensitized and challen...

Chemokine receptor (CCR) 5 is expressed on dendritic cells, macrophages, CD8 cells, memory CD4 T cells, and stromal cells, and is frequently used as a marker of T helper type 1 cells. Interventions that abrogate CCR5 or interfere with its ligand binding have been shown to alter T helper type 2–induced inflammatory responses. The role of CCR5 on allergic airway responses is not defined. CCR5-deficient (CCR5−/−) and wild-type (CCR5+/+) mice were sensitized and challenged with ovalbumin (OVA) and a...

The regulation of human Th17 cell effector function by Treg cells (regulatory T-cells) is poorly understood. In the present study, we report that human Treg (CD4 + CD25 + ) cells inhibit the proliferative response of Th17 cells but not their capacity to secrete IL (interleukin)-17. However, they could inhibit proliferation and cytokine production by Th1 and Th2 cells as determined by IFN-γ (interferon-γ) and IL-5 biosynthesis. Currently, as there is interest in the role of IL17-producing cells a...

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is characterized by airspace enlargement and peribronchial lymphoid follicles; however, the immunological mechanisms leading to these pathologic changes remain undefined. Here we show that cigarette smoke is a selective adjuvant that augments in vitro and in vivo Th17, but not Th1, cell differentiation via the aryl hydrocarbon receptor. Smoke exposed IL-17RA−/− mice failed to induce CCL2 and MMP12 compared to WT mice. Remarkably, in contrast to WT mic...

Escherichia coli heat-labile enterotoxin (LT) is a powerful mucosal adjuvant; however, it is associated with toxic effects when delivered intranasally, and its mechanism of action is poorly understood. In this article, we demonstrate that LT acts as a highly effective adjuvant when administered parenterally, promoting Ag-specific IL-17, as well as IFN-γ, IL-4, and IL-10 production in response to coadministered Ags. We found that the adjuvant activity of LT was mediated in part by inducing dendri...

Background: Vitamin D upregulates anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial pathways that promote respiratory health. Vitamin D synthesis is initiated following skin exposure to sunlight, however nutritional supplementation can be required to address deficiency, for example during the winter months or due to cultural constraints. We recently reported that 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25(OH)2D3) treatment induced alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) expression in CD4+, but not CD8+ T cells, with evidence supporti...

IL-17A and IL-17F are both involved in the pathogenesis of neutrophilic inflammation observed in COPD and severe asthma. To explore this, mice deficient in both Il17a and Il17f and wild type (WT) mice were exposed to cigarette smoke or environmental air for 5 to 28 days and changes in inflammatory cells in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid were determined. We also measured the mRNA expression of keratinocyte derived chemokine (Kc), macrophage inflammatory protein-2 (Mip2), granulocyte-macrophag...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is among the leading causes of death worldwide and imposes a high economic burden to the health systems. COPD is characterized by chronic inflammation of the lung leading to airflow limitation, alveolar tissue destruction, and emphysema. Therefore, anti-inflammatory therapies for the treatment of COPD are of interest. In this review, we focus on the function of the IL-17 cytokines IL-17A and IL-17C, both known to mediate the recruitment of inflammator...

Although activation of adaptive immunity is a common pathological feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), particularly during later stages of the disease, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. In small airways of COPD patients, we found that localized disruption of the secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA)-containing mucosal immunobarrier correlated with lymphocyte accumulation in airway walls and development of tertiary lymphoid structures (TLS) around small airways. In ...

Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), with an aggressive biological behavior, is one of the most diagnosed cancers. Tumor-associated inflammatory cells play important roles in the interaction between chronic inflammation and lung cancer. However, the mechanisms involved are far from defined. In the present study, by developing an orthotopic NSCLC mouse model on the basis of chronic inflammation, we proved that inflammatory microenvironment accelerated growth of orthotopic xenografts in vivo. Tumor...
