Relevance physiopathologique des productions cytokiniques dans la Leucémie Lymphoïde Chronique

Abstract : B cells produce pro-inflammatory or immunosuppressive factors to modulate the immuneresponse. In Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), a subset of the tumor lymphocytes produces IL10 and share immunoregulatory functions with regulatory B cells. CLL cell ssurvival is driven by antigenic response and pro-survival cytokines such as IL6. This project aimed at deciphering the cytokines profile of CLL subsets and analyzing their functional relevance. We identified immunoregulatory subsets producing IL-10, TGFβ1 and for the firsttime FOXP3. In patients, the increased proportion of cells expressing IL10 was correlated with decrease in IL6⁺ cells. Importantly we described an autocrine survival loop driven by IL10 in these cells. IL10 triggering led to STAT3 activation, induction of active pro-survival factors altogether with IL10 self-induction. Interrupting this loop with a blocking ab against IL10R prevented survival of the cells. IL6 did not manage such mechanisms. In conclusion,this work demonstrates that IL10 is an important mediator in CLL; the cytokine alters immune recognition of the tumor cells and sustains leukemic cells survival via the autocrine loop.
