Immune phenotype of peripheral blood mononuclear cells in patients with high-risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer

Immune phenotype of peripheral blood mononuclear cells in patients with high-risk non-muscle... Purpose To explore the immune phenotype of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) in patients with high-risk non- muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). Methods We prospectively collected blood samples from patients with high-risk NMIBC treated at our institution. PBMC were analyzed by flow cytometry to determine the frequency of T cells and NK cells and the expression of immunoregula - tory molecules (Tim-3, TIGIT and PD-1). PBMC from healthy donors (HD) were included for comparison, and associations with response to BCG were investigated. Results A total of 38 patients were included, 19 BCG responders and 19 BCG refractory. Compared to 16 PBMC from HD, the frequency of total NK cells was significantly higher in patients with NMIBC [15.2% (IQR: 11.4, 22.2) vs. 5.72% (IQR: 4.84, 9.79); p = 0.05], whereas the frequency of T cells was not statistically different. Both Tim-3 and TIGIT expressions were significantly higher in NMIBC compared to HD, particularly in NK cells [13.8% (11.0; 22.4) vs. 5.56% (4.20; 10.2) and 34.9% (18.9; 53.5) vs. 1.82% (0.63; 5.16), respectively; p < 0.001]. Overall, the expression of PD-1 in all cell types was low in both NMIBC patients and HD.

Abstract

Purpose To explore the immune phenotype of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) in patients with high-risk non- muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). Methods We prospectively collected blood samples from patients with high-risk NMIBC treated at our institution. PBMC were analyzed by flow cytometry to determine the frequency of T cells and NK cells and the expression of immunoregula - tory molecules (Tim-3, TIGIT and PD-1). PBMC from healthy donors (HD) were included for comparison, and associations with response to BCG were investigated. Results A total of 38 patients were included, 19 BCG responders and 19 BCG refractory. Compared to 16 PBMC from HD, the frequency of total NK cells was significantly higher in patients with NMIBC [15.2% (IQR: 11.4, 22.2) vs. 5.72% (IQR: 4.84, 9.79); p = 0.05], whereas the frequency of T cells was not statistically different. Both Tim-3 and TIGIT expressions were significantly higher in NMIBC compared to HD, particularly in NK cells [13.8% (11.0; 22.4) vs. 5.56% (4.20; 10.2) and 34.9% (18.9; 53.5) vs. 1.82% (0.63; 5.16), respectively; p < 0.001]. Overall, the expression of PD-1 in all cell types was low in both NMIBC patients and HD. The immune phenotype was not significantly different before
