Deciphering the biology of KIR2DL3+ T lymphocytes that are associated to relapse in haploidentical HSCT

Abstract

KIR are mainly expressed on NK cells and to a lesser extent on T lymphocytes. Although the KIR NK cell repertoire was well explored in haploidentical Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT), KIR T cell compartment remains to be investigated in this context. In this study, the investigation of NK receptors on T lymphocytes during immune reconstitution after T-cell-replete haploidentical HSCT with Post-Transplant Cyclophosphamide (PTCy) has shown a significant increase of KIR2DL2/3 + T cell frequency at day 25. This was especially observed at day 30 in recipients who relapsed. IL-15 but not IL-12 increased in vitro KIR + T cell expansion suggesting that the raised IL-15 serum concentration observed after PTCy in haploidentical HSCT might increase KIR + T cell frequency. Moreover, investigations from healthy blood donors showed a higher inhibiting effect of KIR2DL3 on CMV specific T cell response against allogeneic than autologous C1 + target cells. The association of KIR + T cell subset with relapse may suggest that inhibitory KIR2DL2/3 limit anti-leukemic effect of specific T lymphocytes at this early step of immune reconstitution. Further phenotypic and mechanistic investigations on this cell subset from a broader cohort of HSCT recipients should clarify its potential implication in relapse occurrence. Our results demonstrate that KIR-HLA interactions known to modulate NK cell functions also modulate T cell immune responses in the context of allogeneic HSCT.
