Biomarkers of clinical transplantation tolerance

Abstract

Kidney transplant recipients need to be treated with drugs that hold down the immune system (immunosuppression) for life. These drugs have important side effects and we currently don?t have means to know how much treatment each patient needs.

We have recently defined a series of tests that may allow us to identify which kidney transplant recipients do not reject their grafts when taken off immunosuppression. These are very preliminary results. We need to perform several studies to confirm them.

Thus, we are proposing to repeat the study in new groups of patients. If validated our tests could be used to safely minimise or remove immunosuppression in those kidney transplant recipients that don?t need it.

Technical Summary

Studying a cohort of extremely rare but very informative tolerant kidney transplant recipients we have recently defined a set of biomarkers that can identify them with specificity of 0.964 and sensitivity of 0.933. Using molecular profiling, flow cytometry and IFNgamma; ELISpots we identify patients who have been weaned off all immunosuppression for longer than 1 year and whose kidney function has remained stable. A similar set of biomarkers (B cell expansion and molecular expression) was found by the Immune Tolerance Network (USA) on a similar group of patients.

To translate these tolerance biomarker sets into clinically-useful tools, we propose to test if they are predictive of the tolerant state and if their expression is stable with time. We will do this in collaboration with the US based researchers to achieve a common tolerant biomarker set.
? Hypotheses to test:
? More than 80% of the newly recruited tolerant kidney transplant recipients are positive for the common tolerant biomarker set, compared to less than 20% in control groups.
? Stability of the set of biomarkers of tolerance is maintained in more than 90% of the tolerant patients as long as their function remains stable.
? The expanded B cell numbers detected in both studies reflect an expansion of regulatory B cells in peripheral blood from tolerant kidney transplant recipients.

Methods: An observational cross-sectional study in 3 groups of patients:
? Patient groups:
1.- New set of tolerant kidney transplant recipients from the US and Europe. Control groups: healthy controls, stable patients on triple therapy, stable patients on steroid monotherapy, patients with immunologically driven chronic allograft nephropathy and patients with psoriasis in remission.
2.- All tolerant kidney transplant recipients previously studied to test stability of the signature.
3.- Long term kidney transplant recipients with stable function and patients matched for time post-transplantation with deteriorating function in the last 12 months.

Measurements
? Primary outcome: frequency of patients that display the composite set of biomarkers of tolerance.
? Secondary Outcomes: Patient, graft survival, and biopsy proven acute rejection, independently and as a composite variable, graft function (eGFR, CRT), infection rate, cancer rate, major CV events. To compare between patients positive and negative for the biomarkers of tolerance.

Validation of the common tolerant biomarker set will mean that it could be used as a surrogate end point in clinical trials of transplantation tolerance; this will have substantial implications for the management of transplant patients.

STUDY I, led by Prof Sanchez-Fueyo: A randomized multicentre controlled clinical study to assess the benefit/risk ratio of completely withdrawing IS in stable liver recipients identified as operationally tolerant on the basis of a liver tissue-based transcriptional test of tolerance. The study will test two hypotheses. First, that IS withdrawal is not inferior to IS maintenance in terms of rejection-related complications. Second, that drug withdrawal is superior to drug maintenance concerning the improvement of IS-related side effects. STUDY III, led by Dr Hernandez-Fuentes: A UK multicentre randomised hybrid design biomarker clinical trial, where biomarker positive/negative patients will be separately randomized into two arms; the control arm will have standard post-transplant follow up. The experimental arm will have a "Biomarker-led" follow up, namely, the strategy for their management will use the information obtained with the tolerance signature. The peripheral blood biomarker tolerance profile described by IOT/RISET (set-1 WP4) will be used in the biomarker led group to offer partial IS weaning to positive patients. WP 4.2 led by Dr Rebollo-Mesa. To organize data management and biostatistics. Establishment of a Central data base and data management system; biostatistical analyses of clinical and laboratory results, including ontology between the studies.
Collaborator Contribution The central focus of the project is the implementation of biomarker-driven strategies for personalizing IS to improve the long-term outcome and to decrease the adverse effects and costs of chronic IS. This includes 5 innovative investigator-driven biomarker clinical trials designed by the consortium with >1800 (screening) / 1000 (trial) patients. The following issues will be addressed: -targeted complete/partial weaning of standard IS in long-term stable liver and kidney Tx patients identified as "operationally tolerant" by recently developed biomarker panels-prevention of CNI-based standard IS in low-responder kidney Tx recipients by perioperative biomarker-based stratification-shifting high to low-responder kidney Tx patients suitable for early minimisation by the recently explored selective targeting of alloreactive effector/memory T cells -implementing new biomarker candidates supporting personalized IS within the clinical trials-analysing the health-economic impact of biomarker-guided personalized IS -studying the mechanisms behind successful weaning (regulation/effector balance) -disseminating the results and developing commercialisation by partnering with SME/industry. The project will take advantage and exploit recent research findings-Indices of Tolerance (IOT) and RISET but also of other international groups.
