Neonatal sepsis is accompanied by impaired apoptotic depletion of monocytes and macrophages (MΦ), aberrant cytokine production, impaired cell metabolism, and sustained inflammation. Macrophage-colony stimulating factor (M-CSF) triggers the differentiation from monocytes into MΦ (MΦ-0). Interleukin-10 (IL10) and Interferon-gamma (IFNy) further differentiate MΦ subpopulations, the anti-inflammatory MΦ-IL10 and the pro-inflammatory MΦ-IFNy subtype. We previously have shown significant differences between adult (PBMΦ) and cord blood (CBMΦ) in the metabolism of all subtypes. To test the hypothesis whether the competence to differentiate monocytes into MΦ-0 and to polarise into MΦ-IFNy and MΦ-IL10 was diminished in CBMΦ as compared to PBMΦ, we polarised monocytes by cultivation with M-CSF for 72 h, followed by stimulation with IFNy or IL10, for 48 h. After flow cytometry based immunotyping, we tested four functions: Phagocytosis of GFP-E. coli, uptake of erythrocytes, T-cell proliferation, induction of regulatory T-cells as well as phosphorylation analysis of AKT and STAT1/STAT3. Phosphorylation of STAT-1 and STAT-3, obligatory to differentiate into MΦ-IFNγ, MΦ-0 and MΦ-IL10, was found to be aberrant in CBMΦ. Whereas infected MΦ-0 showed identical phagocytic indices and intracellular degradation, TLR4-expression, NFkB up-regulation, IL10-, IL6-, and TNFα production of CBMΦ-0 were reduced. In addition, the capacity to bind aged erythrocytes and the consecutive IL10 production was lower in CBMΦ-IL10. Polarised PBMΦ-IFNy and PBMΦ-IL10 expressed higher levels of co-stimulatory receptors (CD80, CD86), had a higher capacity to stimulate T-cells and induced higher amounts of regulatory T-cells (all p < 0.05 vs. corresponding CBMΦ). Hypoxia-inducible-factor-1α (HIF-1α) was stronger expressed in CBMΦ-IFNy and upregulated in infected CBMΦ-0, whereas heme-oxygenase 1 (HO-1) expression was similar to adult PBMΦ. Neonatal MΦ-0, MΦ-IFNy and MΦ-IL10 polarisation is impaired with respect to phenotype and functions tested which may contribute to sustained inflammation in neonatal sepsis.

Neonatal sepsis is a leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. In comparison to adults, neonates exhibit a higher susceptibility to infections. Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are myeloid cells with suppressive activity on other immune cells accumulating during foetal life and controlling inflammation in neonates. Most studies investigating the mechanisms for MDSC-mediated immune suppression have been focused on T-cells. Thus far, little is known about the role of MDSC for mon...

Neonatal sepsis is characterized by hyperinflammation causing enhanced morbidity and mortality compared to adults. This suggests differences in the response towards invading threats. Here we investigate activated cord blood macrophages (CBMΦ) in comparison to adult macrophages (PBMΦ), indicating incomplete interferon gamma (IFN-γ) and interleukin 10 (IL-10)-induced activation of CBMΦ. CBMΦ show reduced expression of phagocytosis receptors and cytokine expression in addition to altered energy met...

Objective To determine whether a sustained neonatal systemic inflammatory response was associated with poor postnatal growth among infants born very preterm during the first year of life. Study design We studied prospectively 192 infants born preterm (birth weight ≤1.5 kg and gestational age ≤31 weeks). Weight, length, and head circumference were measured at birth, term, 4, and 12 months of corrected age. Serial C-reactive protein and procalcitonin were measured at 1, 3, 7, 14, and 28 days of ag...

Abstract Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a potentially fatal disease that develops in the intestinal tract of newborn infants. An overactive immune system in the intestinal tract of NEC patients not only propagates inflammation and mediates tissue damage, but may also radiate the disease systemically and impose injury to distant organs. We previously identified impairment in the Treg compartment in NEC patients. Here, we hypothesized that monocytes, which could promote iTreg differentiation b...

: The process of inflammation is orchestrated by macrophages, according to their state of differentiation: thus, classically activated (M1) macrophages initiate the process by elaborating proinflammatory cytokines and reactive oxygen species, whereas the latter phase is controlled by alternatively activated macrophages (M2) to resolve inflammation and promote tissue remodelling with the release of growth factors. In a simple human inflammatory response, such as acute crystal arthropathy, macroph...

Abstract The polarization of macrophages and the molecular mechanism involved during the early process of syphilis infection remain unknown. This study was conducted to explore the influence of Treponema pallidum (T. pallidum) treatment on macrophage polarization and the Akt-mTOR-NFκB signaling pathway mechanism involved in this process. M0 macrophages derived from the phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate-induced human acute monocytic leukemia cell line THP-1 were cultured with T. pallidum. T. pallid...

Summary Regulatory T cells (Tregs) control immune responses by suppressing various inflammatory cells. Tregs in newborn babies may play an important role in preventing excessive immune responses during their environmental change. We examined the number and phenotype of Tregs during the neonatal period in 49 newborn babies. Tregs were characterized by flow cytometry using cord blood (CB) and peripheral blood (PB) from the early (7–8 days after birth) and late (2–4 weeks after birth) neonatal peri...

Acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are severe inflammatory lung diseases. Methylprednisolone (MP) is a common drug against inflammation in clinic. In this study, we aim to investigate the protective effect of MP on ALI and potential mechanisms. Male BABL/c mice were injected through tail vein using lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 5 mg/kg) with or without 5 mg/kg MP. Lung mechanics, tissue injury and inflammation were examined. Macrophage subsets in the lung were iden...

Macrophage polarization plays an important role in tissue damage and repair. In this study, we show that Substance-P (SP) can directly induce M2 polarization of inflammatory macrophages. SP induced the differentiation of GM-CSF-differentiated pro-inflammatory macrophages into alternatively activated phagocytic M2 like macrophages (M2SP) through direct activation of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR/S6kinase pathway and induction of Arginase-1, CD163, and CD206, all of which were nullified by pretreatment with t...

Newborns are highly susceptible to infection. The underlying mechanism of neonatal infection susceptibility has generally been associated with neonatal immune cell immaturity. In this study, we challenged this notion and built upon our recent discovery that neonates are physiologically enriched with erythroid TER119 + CD71 + cells (Elahi et al. 2013. Nature 504: 158–162). We have used Bordetella pertussis , a common neonatal respiratory tract infection, as a proof of concept to investigate the r...

Abstract null null While largely appreciated for their antimicrobial and repair functions, macrophages have emerged as indispensable for the development, homeostasis, and regeneration of tissue, including regeneration of the neonatal heart. Upon activation, mammalian neonatal macrophages express and secrete factors that coordinate angiogenesis, resolution of inflammation, and ultimately cardiomyocyte proliferation. This is contrary to adult macrophages in the adult heart, which are incapable of ...

In the fetus and the neonate, altered macrophage function has been implicated not only in inflammatory disorders but also in developmental abnormalities marked by altered onset, interruption, or imbalance of key structural changes. The developmental role of macrophages were first noted nearly a century ago, at about the same time when these cells were being identified as central effectors in phagocytosis and elimination of microbes. Since that time, we have made considerable progress in understa...

Sepsis can result from a variety of pathogens, originating from a range of sources. A vast range of presenting symptoms is included in the catch-all term of "bacteremia," making diagnosis and prognosis particularly troublesome. One underexplored factor contributing to disparate outcomes is the age of the patient. Neonatal sepsis in very-low-birth-weight infants can result in vastly different immunological outcomes unique from sepsis in adults. It is also becoming increasingly clear, both from pr...

Immune responses of neonates differ markedly to those of adults, with skewed cytokine phenotypes, reduced inflammatory properties and drastically diminished memory function. Recent research efforts have started to unravel the role of cellular metabolism in determining immune cell fate and function. For studies in humans, much of the work on metabolic mechanisms underpinning innate and adaptive immune responses by different haematopoietic cell types is in adults. Studies investigating the contrib...
Human umbilical cord blood (UCB) represents a valuable source of hematopoietic stem cells, particularly for patients lacking a matching donor. UCB provides practical advantages, including a lower risk of graft-versus-host-disease and permissive human leukocyte antigen mismatching. These advantageous properties have so far been applied for stem cell, mesenchymal stromal cell, and chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapies. However, UCB-derived professional antigen-presenting cells are increasingl...

The Warburg effect, defined as increased glycolysis and decreased oxidative phosphorylation, occurs in murine macrophages following LPS stimulation and is required for activation. There are differences between human and murine macrophage metabolic responses to stimulation, with peak metabolite concentrations occurring earlier in humans than mice. Complex changes occur in the human immune system with age, resulting in the very young and the very old being more susceptible to infections. Anti-bact...
