Kidney transplants from aged donors are more vulnerable to ischemic injury, suffer more from delayed graft function and have a lower graft survival compared to kidneys from younger donors. On a cellular level, aging results in an increase in cells that are in a permanent cell cycle arrest, termed senescence, which secrete a range of pro-inflammatory cytokines and growth factors. Consequently, these senescent cells negatively influence the local milieu by causing inflammaging, and by reducing the regenerative capacity of the kidney...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a common global health challenge characterized by irreversible pathological processes that reduce kidney function and culminates in development of end-stage renal disease. It is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in addition to increased caregiver burden and higher financial cost. A central player in CKD pathogenesis and progression is renal hypoxia. Renal hypoxia stimulates induction of oxidative and endoplasmic reticulum stress, inflammation and tubulointerstitial fibrosis, which in turn, promote cellular susceptibility and further aggravate hypoxia, thus forming a pathological vicious cycle in CKD progression...

BACKGROUND: Despite major advances in understanding the pathophysiology of antibody mediated rejection (AMR); prevention, diagnosis and treatment remain unmet medical needs. It appears that early T-cell mediated rejection (TCMR), de novo donor specific antibody (dnDSA) formation and AMR result from patient or physician initiated suboptimal immunosuppression, and represent landmarks in an ongoing process rather than separate events. METHODS: On April 12-13, 2017, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sponsored a public workshop on AMR in kidney transplantation to discuss new advances, importance of immunosuppressive medication nonadherence in dnDSA formation, associations between AMR, cellular rejection, changes in GFR, and challenges of clinical trial design for the prevention and treatment of AMR...

In order to reduce the morbidity and mortality risk for the donor in living donor liver transplantation (LDLT), we previously identified 20% left portal vein (LPV) stenosis as the effective preconditioning to induce cell proliferation in the contralateral lobe without the downstream ipsilateral atrophy. We report, here, the pathways involved in the first hours after the preconditioning and investigate the changes in liver volume and function. Fourteen pigs entered this study. Five of them were used to study the genetic, cellular and molecular mechanisms set up in the early hours after the establishment of our preconditioning...

Stromal cell-derived factor 1-alpha (SDF) is a potent bone marrow chemokine capable of recruiting circulating progenitor populations to injured tissue. SDF has known angiogenic capabilities, but bone marrow-derived cellular contributions to tissue regeneration remain controversial. Bone marrow from DsRed-transgenic donors was transplanted into recipients to lineage-trace circulating cells after myocardial infarction (MI). SDF was delivered post-MI, and hearts were evaluated for recruitment and plasticity of bone marrow-derived populations...

Long glucocorticoid-induced leucine zipper (L-GILZ) has recently been implicated in cancer cell proliferation. Here, we investigated its role in human thyroid cancer cells. L-GILZ protein was highly expressed in well-differentiated cancer cells from thyroid cancer patients and differentiated thyroid cancer cell lines, but poorly expressed in anaplastic tumors. A fusion protein containing L-GILZ, when overexpressed in an L-GILZ-deficient 8505C cell line derived from undifferentiated human thyroid cancer tissue, inhibited cellular proliferation in vitro...

The increased risk of Richter transformation (RT) in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) due to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) reactivation during immunosuppressive therapy with fludarabine or other targeted agents remains controversial. Among 31 RT cases classified as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), seven (23%) showed EBV expression. In comparison to EBV-negative tumors, EBV+ DLBCLs derived predominantly from IGVH-hypermutated CLL and exhibited CLL-unrelated IGVH sequences more frequently. Intriguingly, despite having different cellular origins, clonally related and unrelated EBV+ DLBCLs shared a previous history of immunosuppressive chemo-immunotherapy, a non-germinal center DLBCL phenotype, EBV latency programs type II/III, and a very short survival...

Ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) is the predominant tissue insult associated with organ transplantation. Treatment with carbon monoxide (CO) modulates the innate immune response associated with IRI and accelerates tissue recovery. The mechanism has been primarily descriptive and ascribed to the ability of CO to influence inflammation, cell death, and repair. In a model of bilateral kidney IRI in mice, we elucidate an intricate relationship between CO and purinergic signaling involving increased CD39 ectonucleotidase expression, decreased expression of Adora1, with concomitant increased expression of Adora2a/2b...

OBJECTIVES: Myocardial infarction (MI) causes significant loss of cardiomyocytes, myocardial tissue damage, and impairment of myocardial function. The inability of cardiomyocytes to proliferate prevents the heart from self-regeneration. The treatment for advanced heart failure following an MI is heart transplantation despite the limited availability of the organs. Thus, stem-cell-based cardiac therapies could ultimately prevent heart failure by repairing injured myocardium that reverses cardiomyocyte loss...

There is a critical need for strategies that effectively enhance cell viability and post-implantation performance in order to advance cell-based therapies. Spheroids, which are dense cellular aggregates, overcome many current limitations with transplanting individual cells. Compared to individual cells, the aggregation of cells into spheroids results in increased cell viability, together with enhanced proangiogenic, anti-inflammatory, and tissue-forming potential. Furthermore, the transplantation of cells using engineered materials enables localized delivery to the target site while providing an opportunity to guide cell fate in situ, resulting in improved therapeutic outcomes compared to systemic or localized injection...

Though cell transplantation is becoming an attractive therapeutic method, uncontrolled cell proliferation or overexpression of cellular functions could cause adverse effects. These unfavorable outcomes could be avoided by regulating the proliferation or functioning of transplanted cells. In this study, we used a combination of the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (HSVtk) gene, a suicide gene, and ganciclovir (GCV) to control the proliferation and functioning of insulin-secreting cells after transplantation in diabetic mice...

Beta-thalassaemia causes defective haemoglobin synthesis leading to ineffective erythropoiesis, chronic haemolytic anaemia, and subsequent clinical complications. Blood transfusion and iron chelation allow long-term disease control, and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation offers a potential cure for some patients. Nonetheless, there are still many challenges in the management of beta-thalassaemia. The main treatment option for most patients is supportive care; furthermore, the long-term efficacy and safety of current therapeutic strategies are limited and adherence is suboptimal...

BACKGROUND: To discuss the effect and mechanism of adenovirus-mediated OX40Ig gene transfer in inducing long-term survival of liver allografts in rats. METHODS: Orthotopic liver transplantation was performed from Lewis to Brown Norway (BN) rats through the modified two-cuffed technique, and all rats were randomly divided equally into four groups: control, AdEGFP, AdOX40Ig, and FK506. The survival times of the rats were recorded. The rats' liver function, serum cytokines, hepatocyte pathology, OX40Ig protein level, and mixed lymphocyte reaction (MLR) with or without recombinant interleukin-2 (rIL-2) were evaluated...

The immune system recognises a transplanted kidney as foreign body and mounts immune response through cellular and humoral mechanisms leading to acute or chronic rejection, which ultimately results in graft loss. Over the last five decades, there have been significant advances in the understanding of the immune responses to transplanted organs in both experimental and clinical transplant settings. Modulation of the immune response by using immunosuppressive agents has led to successful outcomes after kidney transplantation...

We report that human conventional CD15+ neutrophils can be isolated in the peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) layer during Ficoll gradient separation, and that they can impair T cell proliferation in vitro without concomitant neutrophil activation and killing. This effect was observed in a total of 92 patients with organ transplants, lung cancer or anxiety/depression, and in 18 healthy donors. Although such features are typically associated in the literature with the presence of certain myeloid-derived suppressor cell (PMN-MDSC) populations, we found that commercial centrifuge tubes that contained membranes or gels for PBMC isolation led to up to 70% PBMC contamination by CD15+ neutrophils, with subsequent suppressive effects in certain cellular assays...

Bioengineering of a functional cardiac tissue composed of primary cardiomyocytes has great potential for myocardial regeneration and in vitro tissue modeling. However, its applications remain limited because the cardiac tissue is a highly organized structure with unique physiologic, biomechanical, and electrical properties. In this study, we undertook a proof-of-concept study to develop a contractile cardiac tissue with cellular organization, uniformity, and scalability by using three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting strategy...

Generation of new β cells is an important approach in the treatment of type 1 diabetes mellitus (type 1 DM). Adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ADSCs) might be one of the best sources for cell replacement therapy for diabetes. Therefore, this work aimed to test the possible role of transplanted insulin-producing cells (IPCs) differentiated from ADSCs in treatment of streptozotocin (STZ) induced type I DM in rats. Type 1 DM was induced by single intra peritoneal injection with STZ (50 mg/kg BW). Half of the diabetic rats were left without treatment and the other half were injected with differentiated IPCs directly into the pancreas...

Stem-cell-based therapies have the potential to provide novel solutions for the treatment of a variety of diseases, but the main obstacles to such therapies lie in the uncontrolled differentiation and functional engraftment of implanted tissues. The physicochemical microenvironment controls the self-renewal and differentiation of stem cells, and the key step in mimicking the stem cell microenvironment is to construct a more physiologically relevant 3D culture system. Material-based 3D assemblies of stem cells facilitate the cellular interactions that promote morphogenesis and tissue organization in a similar manner to that which occurs during embryogenesis...

This study aimed to determine the cellular characteristics and behaviors of human bone marrow stromal cells (hBMSCs) expanded in media in a hypoxic or normoxic condition and with or without fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) treatment. hBMSCs isolated from the vertebral body and expanded in these four groups were evaluated for cellular proliferation/migration, colony-forming units, cell-surface characterization, in vitro differentiation, in vivo transplantation, and gene expression. Culturing hBMSCs using a particular environmental factor (hypoxia) and with the addition of FGF-2 increased the cellular proliferation rate while enhancing the regenerative potential, modulated the multipotency-related processes (enhanced chondrogenesis-related processes/osteogenesis, but reduced adipogenesis), and increased cellular migration and collagen formation...
