Abstract The expression of HLA-G by malignant cells has been proposed as a tumor escape mechanism from immunosurveillance. However, although the inhibitory effect of HLA-G on antitumoral immune effectors has been documented in vitro, it remains to be resolved in vivo. In this context, the development of an animal model is now a priority to establish the proof of concept that an HLA-G(+) tumor cell develops and tolerizes the host antitumor immune response in vivo. In the present study, we provide the first in vivo evidence of such a role by a xenotumor model in mice based on the interactions between human HLA-G and the murine paired immunoglobulin-like receptor-B (PIR-B). We demonstrate that human tumor cells expressing HLA-G grow in an immunocompetent host by affecting both innate and adaptive immunity. Expansion of blood myeloid-derived CD11b(+)Gr1(+)PIR-B(+) suppressor cells, loss of peripheral T cells, and cytokinic balance in favor of Th2 versus Th1/Th17 constitute the main mechanisms by which HLA-G promotes tumor expansion. These data demonstrate for the first time that HLA-G plays a crucial role in in vivo tumor evasion. Finally, blocking HLA-G function by a specific Ab inhibits the in vivo development of the tumor, offering a new innovative therapeutic strategy in cancer.
