Association of mixed hematopoietic chimerism with elevated circulating autoantibodies and chronic graft-versus-host disease occurrence.

Abstract : BACKGROUND: Use of a reduced-intensity conditioning regimen before an allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation is frequently associated with an early state of mixed hematopoietic chimerism. Such a coexistence of both host and donor hematopoietic cells may influence posttransplant alloreactivity and may affect the occurrence and severity of acute and chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) as well as the intensity of the graft-versus-leukemia effect. Here we evaluated the relation between chimerism state after reduced-intensity conditioning transplantation (RICT), autoantibody production, and chronic GVHD (cGVHD)-related pathology. METHODS: Chimerism state, circulating anticardiolipin, and antidouble stranded DNA autoantibody (Ab) titers as well as occurrence of cGVHD-like lesions were investigated in a murine RICT model. RESULTS: We observed a novel association between mixed chimerism state, high levels of pathogenic IgG autoantibodies, and subsequent development of cGVHD-like lesions. Furthermore, we found that the persistence of host B cells, but not dendritic cell origin or subset, was a factor associated with the appearance of cGVHD-like lesions. The implication of host B cells was confirmed by a host origin of autoantibodies. CONCLUSION: Recipient B cell persistence may contribute to the frequency and/or severity of cGVHD after RICT.
