Tissue evaluation of immune markers in endometrial and cervical carcinomas.

Major histocompatibility complex (HLA system) class II molecules including HLA-DR antigens, associate with peptides, which are derived from antigens, for presentation to T4 lymphocytes. Functional and adhesion assays have shown that CD4 molecule interacts with HLA class II molecules, leading to enhanced responses of T4 cells. In the present study, we examined the tissue expression of HLA-DR antigens and the quantitative variance of T4 lymphocytes in a series of 50 "endometrioid" adenocarcinomas of the endometrium and 35 cervical squamous-cell carcinomas. A three-step avidin-biotin immunoperoxidase staining method was applied. As primary antibodies, we used the TAL.1BS monoclonal antihuman HLA-DR alpha (alpha) chain antibody and the OPD4 mouse antihuman antibody; the latter mainly identifies benign T4 lymphocytes. Twenty-four percent (24%) of women with endometrial cancer were high immune responders, while the relative percentage in women with cervical cancer was 40%; the respective tumours were of early clinical and surgical stages. HLA-DR determinants were predominantly expressed in membranes of stromal cells, mainly histiocytes, usually around HLA-DR+ lymphoid cells, as well as on endothelial cells. Greater numbers of OPD4+ aggregated lymphocytes were observed when the tumour stroma was rich in HLA-DR+ cells. Epithelial elements, either cancerous or benign, were seldom HLA-DR+. In those samples, positive immunolabelling was often confined in the intercellular space and did not seem to activate an effective host immune response against neoplastic cells. High expression of HLA-DR molecules in professional antigen presenting stromal cells may be used as a lymphocyte activation marker in endometrial and cervical carcinomas. This activation appears to be an early event in the evolution of invasive endometrial and cervical carcinomas.

Differential major histocompatibility complex class II locus expression on human laryngeal epithelium.

The survival of a laryngeal allograft will be dependent on the immunological composition of the donor larynx and, in particular, on the expression of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II antigens on professional and non-professional antigen-presenting cells. Laryngeal and tonsillar biopsies from normal individuals aged 18-78 years were processed and prepared for quantitative, multiple-colour immunofluorescence using mouse antihuman monoclonal antibodies to human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-DR, HLA-DQ and CD45. The laryngeal epithelium expressed HLA-DR locus products at variable levels, but expression of HLA-DQ was virtually absent. Tonsillar epithelial cells expressed HLA-DR at the basal layer only, while HLA-DQ was similarly not expressed. In contrast, both HLA-DR and -DQ locus products were present on lamina propria and intraepithelial leucocytes in both laryngeal and tonsillar mucosae, although at varying levels. The finding that laryngeal epithelial cells express MHC class II antigens has implications for the survival of laryngeal allografts and suggests that they may require significant immunomodulation. In addition, antigen presentation by epithelial cells has been hypothesized to contribute to the immunoregulatory function of mucosal tissues, and the finding that HLA-DQ locus products are only expressed at low levels by laryngeal epithelium raises questions about the repertoire of peptides to which the mucosal immune system can respond.

Syngeneic antiidiotypic antisera to murine antihuman high-molecular-weight melanoma-associated antigen monoclonal antibodies.

BALB/c mice were immunized with the murine antihuman high-molecular-weight melanoma-associated antigen monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) 149.53, 225.28, 653.25, and 763.74. Antiidiotypic antibodies could be detected in bleedings obtained 3 days following the first booster, increased in titer in bleedings obtained following the second booster, and persisted at high level in bleedings obtained 38 days following the second booster. Cross-blocking studies with a panel of anti-melanoma-associated antigen, anti-HLA Class I, and anti-HLA Class II monoclonal antibodies showed that the antisera recognize private idiotypes. The latter are located within the antigen combining site, since antiidiotypic antisera specifically inhibited the binding of the corresponding immunizing anti-human high-molecular-weight melanoma-associated antigen monoclonal antibody to cultured human melanoma cells Colo 38 in a dose-dependent fashion. The spectrotype of the anti-MoAb 149.53 antiserum comprises eight major components in the range of pH 6.2 to 7.0; those of the anti-MoAb 225.28 antiserum and of the anti-MoAb 653.25 antiserum, two major components in the ranges of pH 6.4 to 6.6 and 6.5 to 6.7, respectively; and that of the anti-MoAb 763.74 antiserum, three major components in the range of pH 6.2 to 6.4.

Generation of mouse cytolytic T cells against human concanavalin A blasts. Involvement of non-MHC determinants in the antihuman response.

Normal human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) are incapable of eliciting a significant murine cytotoxic T cell (CTL) response either in vivo or in vitro. However, using a primary in vivo and secondary in vitro stimulation with lectin-activated PBL, Thy-l-positive cytotoxic cells were produced. The antigens that these T-cells identified were independent of the serum source employed in the culture medium used for lectin activation. The cells always preferentially lysed cells from the immunizing individual but were also able to lyse target cells from unrelated individuals, regardless of HLA identity or disparity with the immunizing individual, suggesting the presence of both a private (possibly class II antigens) and public specificity. Using the lymphoblasts of different family members as immunogen and targets there was slight preference of the CTL for HLA-identical targets with no apparent difference between the lysis exhibited against semiidentical and nonidentical subjects. Monoclonal antibodies directed against HLA DR or beta 2-microglobulin failed to inhibit the cytotoxicity observed in these experiments. It is suggested that under these circumstances of xenogeneic education, non-MHC-restricted T cells may become cytotoxic, and this model may serve as a useful probe to investigate some of the less-well-defined aspects of the T cell repertoire.
