  • 3. Outline <ul><li>Introduction </li></ul><ul><li>The Immunology of Allogeneic Transplantation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Recognition of Alloantigens </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Activation of Alloreactive T Cells and Rejection </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Effector Mechanisms of Allograft Rejection </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Hyperacute Rejection </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Acute Rejection </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Chronic Rejection </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Xenogeneic Transplantation </li></ul><ul><li>Blood Transfusion </li></ul><ul><li>Bone Marrow Transplantation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Graft vs. Host Disease </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Immunologic Analysis </li></ul>
  • 4. Introduction <ul><li>A major limitation to the success of transplantation is the immune response of the recipient to the donor tissue. (Abbas pg 369) </li></ul>
  • 5. Terms <ul><li>Autologous graft </li></ul><ul><li>Syngeneic graft </li></ul><ul><li>Allogeneic graft </li></ul><ul><li>Xenogeneic graft </li></ul><ul><li>Alloantigens </li></ul><ul><li>Xenoantigens </li></ul><ul><li>Alloreactive </li></ul><ul><li>xenoreactive </li></ul>
  • 6. First- and Second-set Allograft Rejection Figure 16.1
  • 7. The Immunology of Allogeneic Transplantation <ul><li>Alloantigens elicit both cell-mediated and humoral immune responses. (Abbas pg 371) </li></ul><ul><li>Recognition of transplanted cells that are self or foreign is determined by polymorphic genes that are inherited from both parents and are expressed co-dominantly. (Abbas pg 371) </li></ul>
  • 8. Recognition of Alloantigens <ul><li>Direct Presentation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Recognition of an intact MHC molecule displayed by donor APC in the graft </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Basically, self MHC molecule recognizes the structure of an intact allogeneic MHC molecule </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Indirect Presentation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Donor MHC is processed and presented by recipient APC </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Basically, donor MHC molecule is handled like any other foreign antigen </li></ul></ul>
  • 9. Molecular Basis of Direct Recognition Figure 16-4
  • 10. Direct and Indirect Recognition Figure 16-3
  • 11. Activation of Alloreactive T cells and Rejection of Allografts <ul><li>Donor APCs migrate to regional lymph nodes and are recognized by the recipient’s T cells (Abbas pg 375) </li></ul><ul><li>Alloreactive T cells in the recipient may be activated by both pathways, and they migrate into the graft and cause graft rejection (Abbas pg 375) </li></ul>
  • 12. CD4 + and CD8 + <ul><li>CD4 + differentiate into cytokine producing effector cells </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Damage graft by reactions similar to DTH </li></ul></ul><ul><li>CD8 + cells activated by direct pathway kill nucleated cells in the graft </li></ul><ul><li>CD8 + cells activated by the indirect pathway are self MHC-restricted </li></ul>
  • 13. Effector Mechanisms of Allograft Rejection <ul><li>Hyperacute Rejection </li></ul><ul><li>Acute Rejection </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic Rejection </li></ul>
  • 14. Hyperacute Rejection <ul><li>Characterized by thrombotic occlusion of the graft </li></ul><ul><li>Begins within minutes or hours after anastamosis </li></ul><ul><li>Pre-existing antibodies in the host circulation bind to donor endothelial antigens </li></ul><ul><li>Activates Complement Cascade </li></ul><ul><li>Xenograft Response </li></ul>
  • 15. Hyperacute Rejection: the early days <ul><li>Mediated by pre-existing IgM alloantibodies </li></ul><ul><li>Antibodies come from carbohydrate antigens expressed by bacteria in intestinal flora </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ABO blood group antigens </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Not really a problem anymore </li></ul>
  • 16. Hyperacute Rejection: Today <ul><li>Mediated by IgG antibodies directed against protein alloantigens </li></ul><ul><li>Antibodies generally arise from </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Past blood transfusion </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple pregnancies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Previous transplantation </li></ul></ul>
  • 17. Hyperacute Rejection 1. Preformed Ab, 2. complement activation, 3. neutrophil margination, 4. inflammation, 5. Thrombosis formation
  • 18. Acute Rejection <ul><li>Vascular and parenchymal injury mediated by T cells and antibodies that usually begin after the first week of transplantation if there is no immunosuppressant therapy </li></ul><ul><li>Incidence is high (30%) for the first 90 days </li></ul>
  • 19. Acute Rejection <ul><li>T-cell, macrophage and Ab mediated, </li></ul><ul><li>myocyte and endothelial damage, </li></ul><ul><li>Inflammation </li></ul>
  • 20. Chronic Rejection <ul><li>Occurs in most solid organ transplants </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Heart </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Kidney </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lung </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Liver </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Characterized by fibrosis and vascular abnormalities with loss of graft function over a prolonged period (Abbas 381) </li></ul>
  • 21. Chronic Rejection <ul><li>Macrophage – T cell mediated </li></ul><ul><li>Concentric medial hyperplasia </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic DTH reaction </li></ul>
  • 22. Types of Rejection <ul><li>Acute Rejection : CD4 controlled CD8 mediated (8-11 days) </li></ul><ul><li>Hyperacute Rejection : pre-existing antibodies to donor tissue (7 min) </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic Rejection : Mixed CD4 and antibody – ”DTH like” (3 m to 10 years) </li></ul><ul><li>Xenograft Rejection : pre-existing antibodies to donor tissue (7 min) </li></ul>
  • 23. Xenogeneic Transplantation <ul><li>A major barrier to xenogeneic transplantation is the presence of natural antibodies that cause hyperacute rejection. (Abbas pg 386) </li></ul>
  • 24. Most Common Transplantation -Blood Transfusion- Transfuse Not transfused
  • 25. Question <ul><li>Why are antibodies normally formed in response to ABO blood groups? </li></ul><ul><li>Due to prior exposure to blood </li></ul><ul><li>Maternal exposure </li></ul><ul><li>Gut flora </li></ul><ul><li>Plant pollen </li></ul>
  • 26. Question <ul><li>Why are antibodies normally formed in response to ABO blood groups? </li></ul><ul><li>Prior exposure to blood </li></ul><ul><li>Maternal exposure </li></ul><ul><li>Gut flora </li></ul><ul><li>Plant pollen </li></ul>
  • 27. Bone Marrow Transplantation <ul><li>Rescue procedure for hemopoietic reconstitution subsequent to cancer chemo- or radio- therapy </li></ul>
  • 28. Graft vs. Host Disease <ul><li>Caused by the reaction of grafted mature T-cells in the marrow inoculum with alloantigens of the host </li></ul><ul><li>Acute GVHD </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Characterized by epithelial cell death in the skin, GI tract, and liver </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Chronic GVHD </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Characterized by atrophy and fibrosis of one or more of these same target organs as well as the lungs </li></ul></ul>
  • 29. Heart Transplantation <ul><li>Heart transplantation is indicated for those in end-stage heart disease with a New York Heart Association of class III or IV, </li></ul><ul><li>ejection fractions of &lt;20%, </li></ul><ul><li>maximal oxygen consumption of (VO 2 ) &lt;14 ml/kg/min, and </li></ul><ul><li>expected 1-year life expectancy of &lt;50%. </li></ul>
  • 30. Heart Transplantation <ul><li>Survival is 80% at five years but at five year 50% also have coronary vascular disease due to chronic rejection. </li></ul>
  • 31. Transplantation <ul><li>Kidney 25,000 patients are waiting for kidney transplantation </li></ul><ul><li>savings in three years compared to the cost of three years of renal dialysis. </li></ul><ul><li>Liver One-year survival exceeds 75% and five-year is 70%. </li></ul>
  • 32. Pancreas Transplantation <ul><li>Graft survival is 72% at one-year and this is further improved if a kidney is transplanted simultaneously. </li></ul><ul><li>The overall goal of pancreas transplantation is to prevent the typical diabetic secondary complications: neuropathy, retinopathy, and cardiovascular disease. </li></ul>
  • 33. Immunologic Analysis <ul><li>HLA Tissue Typing </li></ul><ul><li>Cytoscreen </li></ul><ul><li>Cross Match </li></ul>
