Article
Objective To characterize the role of interleukin (IL)-1β and skin microvascular endothelial cells (MECs) in the generation of alternatively-activated macrophages (AAMs) and explore their fibrotic role during systemic sclerosis (SSc). Methods Conditioned medium from MECs purified from healthy donors (HD) or SSc patient’s skin were used to generate...
Article
Female sex hormones affect the immune response in the lower female genital tract. To understand their mechanisms of action, it is essential to define cell types expressing estrogen receptor (ER) and/or progesterone receptor (PR) in the human vaginal mucosa (VM). Here, we report that none of the dendritic cell (DC) subsets in the human VM expressed...

Common variable immunodeficiency is the most common clinical primary immunodeficiency in adults. Its hallmarks are hypogammaglobulinemia and compromised B-cell differentiation into memory or antibody-secreting cells leading to recurrent infections. This disease is heterogeneous, with some patients harboring multiple complications such as lymphoprol...

In contrast to the once dominant tumour‐centric view of cancer, increasing attention is now being paid to the tumour microenvironment (TME), generally understood as the elements spatially located in the vicinity of the tumour. Thinking in terms of TME has proven extremely useful, in particular because it has helped identify and comprehend the role...
Article
Full-text available
The notion of tumor microenvironment (TME) has been brought to the forefront of recent scientific literature on cancer. However, there is no consensus on how to define and spatially delineate the TME. We propose that the time is ripe to go beyond an all-encompassing list of the components of the TME, and to construct a multilayered view of cancer....
Article
Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) is characterized by low levels of circulating immunoglobulins and defects in B cell maturation leading to an increased susceptibility to infections. Some patients develop complications such as autoimmune diseases, enteropathy, and lymphoproliferation, resulting in higher morbidity and mortality. Follicular he...
Article
Full-text available
T follicular helper (Tfh) cells are a distinct subset of CD4+ T lymphocytes, specialized in B cell help and in regulation of antibody responses. They are required for the generation of germinal center reactions, where selection of high affinity antibody producing B cells and development of memory B cells occur. Owing to the fundamental role of Tfh...
Article
During Plasmodium falciparum infections, erythrocyte-stage parasites inhibit dendritic cell maturation and function; compromising development of effective anti-malarial adaptive immunity. Human V?9V?2 T-cells can act in vitro as APCs and induce ?? T-cell activation. However, the relevance of this activity in pathophysiological contexts in vivo has...
Article
Dendritic cells (DCs) are major antigen presenting cells that can efficiently prime and activate cellular immune responses. Delivering antigens to in vivo DCs has thus been considered as a promising strategy that could allow us to mount T cell-mediated therapeutic immunity against cancers in patients. Successful development of such types of cancer...
Article
RÉSUMÉ La réponse immunitaire adaptative, constituée de la réponse humorale et cellulaire, est caractérisée par sa spécificité vis-à-vis de l’antigène et est associée à la présence de récepteurs spécifiques à la surface des lymphocytes. La réponse immunitaire humorale repose sur la réponse anticorps, en lien avec la production d’immunoglobulines sp...
Article
Human papillomavirus (HPV), particularly HPV16 and HPV18, can cause cancers in diverse anatomical sites, including the anogenital and oropharyngeal (throat) regions. Therefore, development of safe and clinically effective therapeutic vaccines is an important goal. Herein, we show that a recombinant fusion protein of a humanized antibody to CD40 fus...
Article
Full-text available
Dendritic cells (DCs) are major antigen-presenting cells that can efficiently prime and cross-prime antigen-specific T cells. Delivering antigen to DCs via surface receptors is thus an appealing strategy to evoke cellular immunity. Nonetheless, which targeted receptor yields the optimal CD8+ and CD4+ T cell responses remains elusive. Herein, we rep...
Article
Full-text available
Dendritic cells localize throughout the body, where they can sense and capture invading pathogens to induce protective immunity. Hence, harnessing the biology of tissue-resident dendritic cells is fundamental for the rational design of vaccines against pathogens. Herein, we characterized the transcriptomes of four antigen-presenting cell subsets fr...
Article
While viral antigens in HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer (HPVOPC) are attractive targets for immunotherapy, the effects of existing standard-of-care therapies on immune responses to HPV are poorly understood. We serially sampled blood from stage III-IV OPC patients undergoing concomitant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) with or without induction chemotherap...
Article
Lectin-like oxidized low-density lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1) is a pattern-recognition receptor for a variety of endogenous and exogenous ligands. However, LOX-1 function in the host immune response is not fully understood. Here, we report that LOX-1 expressed on dendritic cells (DCs) and B cells promotes humoral responses. On B cells LOX-1 signa...
Article
Purpose/Objectives: While viral antigens in HPV-related oropharyngeal cancer (HPVOPC) make it an attractive target for immunotherapy, understanding the immune effects of existing therapeutic approaches is essential for integrating immunotherapy into HPVOPC treatment. Preclinical data in several cancer models support an overall immunostimulatory eff...

Objective Interleukin-26 (IL-26) is a member of the IL-10 cytokine family, first discovered based on its peculiar expression by virus-transformed T cells. IL-26 is overexpressed in chronic inflammation (rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease) and induces proinflammatory cytokines by myeloid cells and some epithelial cells. We thus investigated th...
Article
Full-text available
Recent compelling evidence indicates that Th17 confer host immunity against a variety of microbes, including extracellular and intracellular pathogens. Therefore, understanding mechanisms for the induction and activation of Ag-specific Th17 is important for the rational design of vaccines against pathogens. To study this, we employed an in vitro sy...

Human vaginal mucosa is the major entry site of sexually transmitted pathogens and thus has long been attractive as a site for mounting mucosal immunity. It is also known as a tolerogenic microenvironment. Here, we demonstrate that immune responses in the vagina can be orchestrated by the functional diversity of four major antigen-presenting cell (...
Article
Full-text available
Dendritic cells (DCs) can initiate and shape host immune responses toward either immunity or tolerance by their effects on antigen-specific CD4(+) T cells. DC-asialoglycoprotein receptor (DC-ASGPR), a lectinlike receptor, is a known scavenger receptor. Here, we report that targeting antigens to human DCs via DC-ASGPR, but not lectin-like oxidized-L...
Article
Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), the most abundant immunosuppressive myeloid cells in the tumor microenvironment, exhibit an IL-10(high)IL-12(low) profile called M2, opposite to the immunostimulatory M1. We reported that ovarian cancer ascites switched monocyte differentiation into TAM-like cells that exhibit most phenotypic and functional char...
Article
Full-text available
Dectin-1, a C-type lectin recognizing fungal and mycobacterial pathogens, can deliver intracellular signals that activate dendritic cells (DCs), resulting in initiation of immune responses and expansion of Th17 CD4(+) T cell responses. In this paper, we studied the roles of human Dectin-1 (hDectin-1) expressed on DCs in the induction and activation...

IL-27 is formed by the association of a cytokine subunit, p28, with the soluble cytokine receptor EBV-induced gene 3 (EBI3). The IL-27R comprises gp130 and WSX-1. The marked difference between EBI3(-/-) and WSX-1(-/-) mice suggests that p28 has functions independent of EBI3. We have identified an alternative secreted complex formed by p28 and the s...
Article
NK lymphocytes and type I IFN (IFN-alpha/beta) are major actors of the innate anti-viral response that also influence adaptive immune responses. We evaluated type I IFN production by human NK cells in response to polyI:C, a potent type I IFN-inducing TLR3 agonist. PolyI:C plus IL-2/IL-12 induced IFN-beta (but not IFN-alpha) mRNA expression and prot...
Article
Tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) are M2d-polarized cells (IL-10(high), IL-12(low), ILT3(high), CD86(low)) that accumulate in tumor microenvironment. TAM inhibit antitumor T lymphocyte generation and function, contribute to tumor tolerance and are trophic for tumors. In this study, we investigated whether some immunological factors may reverse TAM...

Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), the most abundant immunosuppressive cells in the tumor microenvironment, originate from blood monocytes and exhibit an IL-10(high)IL-12(low) M2 profile. The factors involved in TAM generation remain unidentified. We identify here leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and IL-6 as tumor microenvironmental factors that...
Article
Effector memory T helper 2 (Th2) cells that accumulate in target organs (i.e. skin or bronchial mucosa) have a central role in the pathogenesis of allergic disorders. To date, the factors that selectively trigger local production of Th2-attracting chemokines remain poorly understood. In mucosa, at the sites of allergen entry, immature dendritic cel...

TLRs are involved in innate cell activation by conserved structures expressed by microorganisms. Human T cells express the mRNA encoding most of TLRs. Therefore, we tested whether some TLR ligands may modulate the function of highly purified human CD4+ T lymphocytes. We report that, in the absence of APCs, flagellin (a TLR5 ligand) and R-848 (a TLR...
