Background: Recent studies with bone marrow (BM)-derived Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSC) in transplant recipients demonstrate that treatment with MSC is safe and clinically feasible. While BM is currently the preferred source of MSC, adipose tissue is emerging as an alternative. To develop efficient therapies, there is a need for preclinical efficacy studies in transplantation. We used a unique humanized transplantation model to study the in vivo immunosuppressive effect of human BM-MSC and adipose tissue-derived MSC (ASC).

Methods: Gene expression of BM-MSC and ASC and their capacity to inhibit activated PBMC proliferation was evaluated. The in vivo immunosuppressive effect of BM-MSC and ASC was studied in a humanized mouse model. SCID mice were transplanted with human skin grafts and injected with human allogeneic PBMC with or without administration of BM-MSC or ASC. The effect of MSC on skin graft rejection was studied by immunohistochemistry and PCR.

Results: BM-MSC and ASC expressed TGFβ, CXCL-10 and IDO. IDO expression and acitivity increased significantly in BM-MSC and ASC upon IFN-γ stimulation. IFN-γ stimulated BM-MSC and ASC inhibited the proliferation of activated PBMC in a significant and dose dependent manner. In our humanized mouse model, alloreactivity was marked by pronounced CD45+ T-cell infiltrates consisting of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells and increased IFN-γ expression in the skin grafts which were all significantly inhibited by both BM-MSC and ASC. Conclusion: BM-MSC and ASC are immunosuppressive in vitro and suppress alloreactivity in a preclinical humanized transplantation model.
