Study Description

We studied whether Vγ9Vδ2-T cells can exploited as autologous effector lymphocytes in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Healthy controls (HC) Vγ9Vδ2-T cells were activated by and had potent cytolytic activity against CLL cells, however CLL-derived Vγ9Vδ2-T cells proved dysfunctional with respect to effector cytokine production and cytotxicity. Dysfunction of Vγ9Vδ2-T cells was reversible upon activation with autologous monocyte-derived dendritic cells (mODCs). RNA sequencing confirmed that Vγ9Vδ2-T cells from CLL patients have a transcriptional profile that is distinct from HC Vγ9Vδ2-T cells prior to ex vivo expansion, although the profile after ex vivo expansion is similar between CLL and HC Vγ9Vδ2-T cells. Gene expression profiling implicated alterations in both synapse formation and exhaustion as conceivable contributors to compromised Vγ9Vδ2-T cell function in CLL patients. Taken together, CLL-mediated dysfunction of autologous Vγ9Vδ2-T cells is fully reversible, resulting in potent cytotoxicity towards CLL cells.
