Abstract The current study was designed to develop and test a T-cell dependent antibody response to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) in cynomolgus monkeys. In an optimization experiment, monkeys (3/sex) were given a single intramuscular injection of KLH at 10 mg/animal to evaluate the kinetics of the antibody response. Serum samples were collected pretest, and on Days 4, 6, 8, 11, 15 and 22 for measurement of anti-KLH IgM and IgG endpoint titers. In a subsequent experiment, female monkeys (3/group) were treated once daily by gavage with the immunosuppressive agent cyclosporine (Neoral) at 0, 10 and 50 mg/kg for 21 days, and the effects of drug treatment on anti-KLH IgM and IgG responses were determined. The effects of cyclosporine on hematology, biochemistry, bone marrow, organ weights, gross and histopathology, and peripheral lymphocyte subsets also were evaluated. Robust anti-KLH IgM and IgG responses were seen in monkeys given a single intramuscular injection of KLH at 10 mg/animal, with peak antibody responses at approximately 10-14 days post-immunization for anti-KLH IgM, and 14-21 days for anti-KLH IgG. Decreases in anti-KLH IgG endpoint titers were seen in 1 monkey given cyclosporine at 10 mg/kg, and 1 monkey dosed at 50 mg/kg. Relative to vehicle control animals, mild lymphoid depletion was evident in lymph nodes and tonsil of monkeys with suppressed anti-KLH IgG titers. Collectively, these findings in individual animals provided evidence of cyclosporine-induced immunosuppression. Cyclosporine at 10 and 50 mg/kg did not alter anti-KLH IgM production, hematology, biochemistry, bone marrow, organ weights, or peripheral lymphocyte subsets. Lastly, the results of this study demonstrated that KLH immunization at 10 mg/animal did not alter the standard toxicity endpoints evaluated in control animals.
