  • Attenuation of OX40 signaling suppression by age disrupts peripheral deletion of CD4<sup>+</sup> T cells specific for the epidermal autoantigen desmoglein 3

    Iriki H., Mukai M., Asahina Y., Kubo Y., Ito H., Amagai M., Takahashi H.

    Immunity and Ageing (Immunity and Ageing)  20 ( 1 ) 26 2023.12

     View Summary

    Various autoimmune responses increase with age, but the underlying mechanism is not clear. In this study, we used CD4+ T cells expressing a transgenic T cell receptor specific for desmoglein 3 (Dsg3), which is the target antigen of the autoimmune bullous disease pemphigus vulgaris, to examine how peripheral immunological tolerance against pathogenic autoreactive CD4+ T cells changes with age. Dsg3-specific T cells were deleted within 14 days after adoptive transfer into young mice (8 weeks old), while they escaped deletion when transferred into older mice over 42 weeks old. Dsg3-specific T cells produced higher levels of the proinflammatory cytokine IFN-γ in aged mice than in young mice. In addition, the expression levels of both OX40 and Birc5, which are important for cell survival in T cell clonal proliferation, were higher in aged than in young mice. The dysfunction in suppressing proinflammatory cytokine secretion and Birc5 upregulation in Dsg3-specific autoreactive T cells may reflect an aspect of the preliminary steps in autoimmune disease development in the aged population. Understanding this mechanism may lead to better risk evaluation of autoimmune disease development and to onset prevention.

  • Diverse Role of OX40 on T Cells as a Therapeutic Target for Skin Diseases

    Iriki H., Takahashi H., Amagai M.

    Journal of Investigative Dermatology (Journal of Investigative Dermatology)  143 ( 4 ) 545 - 553 2023.04

    ISSN  0022202X

     View Summary

    OX40 is an important costimulatory molecule for T-cell expansion and survival. Because OX40 is expressed on most T-cell subsets, it is an attractive therapeutic target for a variety of T-cell‒mediated diseases. Clinical trials are already underway for some skin inflammatory diseases. In this review, we present various observations that improve our understanding of how OX40-targeted therapy can be applied for skin inflammatory diseases, such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, T helper (Th)2- and Th17-mediated diseases, respectively. The important OX40/OX40L-mediated interaction between T cells and other immune cells is also discussed in terms of skin autoimmune diseases, such as alopecia areata and pemphigus. Regulatory T cells (Tregs) highly express OX40, and the skin harbors a large Treg population; thus, understanding how OX40-targeted treatment acts on Tregs is vital for the development of therapeutic strategies for various skin diseases.

  • T cell autoimmunity and immune regulation to desmoglein 3, a pemphigus autoantigen

    Takahashi H., Iriki H., Asahina Y.

    Journal of Dermatology (Journal of Dermatology)  50 ( 2 ) 112 - 123 2023.02

     View Summary

    Pemphigus is a life-threatening autoimmune bullous disease mediated by anti-desmoglein IgG autoantibodies. Pemphigus is mainly classified into three subtypes: pemphigus vulgaris, pemphigus foliaceus, and paraneoplastic pemphigus. The pathogenicity of autoantibodies has been extensively studied. Anti-human CD20 antibody therapy targeting B cells emerged as a more effective treatment option compared to conventional therapy for patients with an intractable disease. On the other hand, autoreactive T cells are considered to be involved in the pathogenesis based on the test results of human leukocyte antigen association, autoreactive T cell detection, and cytokine profile analysis. Research on the role of T cells in pemphigus has continued to progress, including that on T follicular helper cells, which initiate molecular mechanisms involved in antibody production in B cells. Autoreactive T cell research in mice has highlighted the crucial roles of cellular autoimmunity and improved the understanding of its pathogenesis, especially in paraneoplastic pemphigus. The mouse research has helped elucidate novel regulatory mechanisms of autoreactive T cells, such as thymic tolerance to desmoglein 3 and the essential roles of regulatory T cells, Langerhans cells, and other molecules in peripheral tissues. This review focuses on the immunological aspects of autoreactive T cells in pemphigus by providing detailed information on various related topics.

  • Rituximab therapy for intractable pemphigus: A multicenter, open-label, single-arm, prospective study of 20 Japanese patients

     View Summary

    This was a multicenter clinical trial of rituximab, a chimeric monoclonal IgG antibody directed against CD20, for the treatment of refractory pemphigus vulgaris and pemphigus foliaceus. In total, 20 patients were treated with two doses of rituximab (1000 mg; 2 weeks apart) on days 0 and 14. The primary end point was the proportion of patients who achieved complete or partial remission on day 168 following the first rituximab dose. Of the 20 enrolled patients, 11 (55%) and four (20%) achieved complete and partial remission, respectively; therefore, remission was achieved in a total of 15 patients (75.0% [95% confidence interval, 50.9%–91.3%]). It was demonstrated that the remission rate was greater than the prespecified threshold (5%). In addition, a significant improvement in clinical score (Pemphigus Disease Area Index) and decrease in serum anti-desmoglein antibody level were observed over time. Four serious adverse events (heart failure, pneumonia, radial fracture, and osteonecrosis) were recorded in two patients, of which only pneumonia was considered causally related with rituximab. The level of peripheral blood CD19-positive B lymphocytes was decreased on day 28 after rituximab treatment and remained low throughout the study period until day 168. Our results confirm the efficacy and safety of rituximab therapy for refractory pemphigus in Japanese patients.

     View Summary

    Interface dermatitis is a pathological feature which is commonly observed in a variety of skin diseases including lichen plans, severe drug adverse reaction, graft-versus-host disease, paraneoplastic pemphigus and so on. The molecular mechanism that leads to interface dermatitis has not been understood. In this project, we took advantage of genetically engineered mice and discovered that T-bet and Stat1, crucial transcriptional factors in T cell differentiation, are keys in development of interface dermatitis. On the other hand, we also sought to establish a novel concept in the field of Immunology in this project. Through investigating genes which are specifically induced by interleukin (IL)-27, we found that cholesterol metabolizing enzyme is induced by IL-27 and the function contributes to immune regulation. Our results are promisingly expected to be useful to invent a new treatment for skin inflammatory diseases in the future.
