Immune Biology of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Book Review:

Immune Biology of Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: Models in Discovery and Translation, Second Edition once again provides clinical and scientific researchers with a deep understanding of the current research in this field and the implications for translational practice. By providing an overview of the immune biology of HSCT, an explanation of immune rejection, and detail on antigens and their role in HSCT success, this book embraces biologists and clinicians who need a broad view of the deeply complex processes involved. It then moves on to discuss the immunobiology mechanisms that influence graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), graft-versus-leukemia effect, and transplantation success. Using illustrative figures, highlighting key issues, describing recent successes, and discussing unanswered questions, this book sums up the current state of HSCT to enhance the prospects for the future. The second edition is fully revised and includes new chapters on microbiome, metabolism, kinase targets, micro-RNA and mRNA regulatory mechanisms, signaling pathways in GVHD, innate lymphoid system development, recovery and function in GVHD, genetically engineered T-cell therapies, immune system engagers for GVHD and graft-versus-tumor, and hematopoietic cell transplant for tolerance induction in solid organ grafts. Brings together perspectives from leading laboratories and clinical research groups to highlight advances from bench to the bedside Guides readers through the caveats that must be considered when drawing conclusions from studies with animal models before correlating to clinical allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) scenarios Categorizes the published advances in various aspects of immune biology of allogeneic HSCT to illustrate opportunities for clinical applications

The Biology of Human Invariant Natural Killer T Cells and Regulatory T Cells in Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Book Review:

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) can be used as a curative treatment for patients with hematologic malignancies; however, acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) is a highly inflammatory disease and a major complication that can occur following this therapy. Two populations capable of regulating immune responses are invariant natural killer T (iNKT) and regulatory T (Treg) cells, but their biology in the clinical aGVHD setting is not fully understood. Thus, I examined how iNKT and Treg cells regulate aGVHD in the clinical setting. To study human iNKT cells, I used a high-dimensional, data-driven approach to devise a framework for parsing human iNKT cell heterogeneity. A population of iNKT cells characterized by HLA-DR expression was found to be enriched in aGVHD patients and associated with exhaustion markers and a Th1 profile, suggesting a loss of immunoregulatory mechanisms in aGVHD. This phenotype, along with other discovered phenotypic markers, were also associated with aGVHD outcomes, suggesting that iNKT cells can potentially serve as a biomarker and therapeutic target in allogeneic HSCT. Beyond these potential clinical implications, a new framework was discovered for understanding human iNKT cell heterogeneity that advances our knowledge of human iNKT cell biology. As our understanding of fundamental human Treg cell biology is more advanced, a phase I/II study of the infusion of Treg cells with hematopoietic stem cells to prevent aGVHD in adult patients undergoing myeloablative allogeneic HSCT for hematological malignancies has been started and is ongoing. Clinically, greater than grade II aGVHD was noted in two patients in the first cohort of five patients who received cryopreserved Treg cells. In a second cohort of seven patients who received fresh Treg cells and single agent aGVHD prophylaxis, none developed aGVHD. A key finding is that patients in the second cohort showed immune reconstitution comparable to patients who underwent allogeneic HSCT on standard-of-care. Together, these studies reveal new insights into the biology of human iNKT and Treg cells in the clinical aGVHD setting.

Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation Book Review:

Internationally recognized physicians and researchers review both the basics of allogeneic stem cell transplantation and recent advances in the field, particularly as they relate to antitumor effects and graft-versus-host disease They also provide unique decision-tree analyses to guide clinicians in selecting and managing their allogeneic transplant patients. The innovations discussed cover a variety of areas, ranging from stem cell mobilization in normal donors, to indications for allogeneic transplantation other than hematologic malignancies, to the use of nonmyeloablative conditioning regimens. The authors also explore new developments in the optimal selection of unrelated allogeneic grafts (e.g., matched unrelated donor, partially mismatched family member, or umbilical cord blood), the use allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell vs marrow-derived grafts for transplantation, and the kinetics of immune reconstitution after transplantation.

Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Book Review:

The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. Abraham Lincoln, 1862 When I came across this quote, it made me recall my first participation at an international meeting on bone marrow transplantation, at a time when this was the only term that was used to describe the field. During a particular session there was a presentation on the use of peripheral blood as the sole source of stem cells for transplantation, and a member of the audience rose to state that it was medically unethical to consider such treatment, as it certainly could not contain stem cells. Now nearly twenty years later, peripheral blood is the predominant source of stem cells used for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. In the same period of time there have been several other dogmatic opinions, which permeate all of medicine, that have come and gone in the field of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and will continue to do so with advancements from basic and clinical research. It is within this context that the format of this book was devised. Traditionally reviews on specific topics related to hematopoietic stem cell transplantation reflect the views of a single author or a research group.

How to improve immune reconstitution in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation Book Review:

Allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is widely used in the treatment of haematological malignancies as a form of immunotherapy acting through a graft-versus-leukemia (GvL) reaction. This curative allogeneic response can be associated with severe drawbacks, such as frequent and severe graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) and a long-lasting immunodeficiency, especially now with the development of innovative strategies such as umbilical cord blood transplantation or transplants from haplo-identical family donors (Haplo-HSCT). In the long-term follow-up of these patients, severe post-transplant infections, relapse or secondary malignancies may be directly related to persistent immune defects. Reconstitution of the different lymphocyte populations (B, T, NK, NKT) and antigen presenting cells of myeloid origin (monocytes, macrophages and dendritic cells) should be considered not only quantitatively but especially qualitatively, in terms of functional subsets. Immune deficiency leading to an increased susceptibility to infections lasts for more than a year. Although infections that occur in the first month mostly result from a deficiency in both granulocytes and mononuclear cells (MNC), later post-engraftment infections are due to a deficiency in MNC subsets, primarily CD4 T-cells and B-cells. T-cell reconstitution has been extensively studied because of the central role of T-cells in mediating both GvHD, evidenced by the reduced incidence of this complication following T-Cell depletion, and a GvL effect as shown by DLI. In the recent years there has been renewed interest in the role of NK-cells, especially in the context of Haplo-HSCT, and in B-cell reconstitution. This Frontiers Research Topic will provide state of the art knowledge of the mechanisms of immune reconstitution in an allogeneic environment, in order to improve monitoring and therapeutic intervention in allo-HSCT patients.
