Co-Transplantation Of Bone Marrow Stromal Cells Transduced With IL-7 Gene Enhances Immune Reconstitution After Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplantation

Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (allo-BMT) is followed by a period of profound immune deficiency, which results in significant susceptibility to infections and limits the extensive application of this approach in clinic. Dr. S. Xie’s group transduced human interleukin-7 (IL-7) gene into donor-derived bone marrow stromal cells (MSCs) using adenovirus vector, and transplanted this gene-engineered MSCs (MSC-IL-7) into lethally irradiated C57BL/6 mice to investigate their effects on immune reconstitution following allo-BMT. Thus, the use of MSC-IL-7 cells may be therapeutically useful for enhancing immune reconstitution without aggravating graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in allo-BMT mice. Their research is described in Gene Therapy (Vol. 13, pp. 1178–1187).
