Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells: Ductile Targets in Disease

Discussion MDSCs violently emerge in pathological conditions in an attempt to limit potentially harmful immune and inflammatory responses. Mechanisms supporting their expansion and survival are deeply investigated in cancer, in the perspective to reactivate specific antitumor responses and prevent their contribution to disease evolution. These findings will likely contribute to improve the targeting of MDSCs in anticancer immunotherapies, either alone or in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors. New evidence indicates that the expansion of myeloid cell differentiation in pathology is subject to fine-tuning, as its alterations may support either immunosuppression or autoimmunity. This pathological plasticity is supported by evidence indicating that common MDSC-associated targets may be specularly targeted in autoimmunity vs. cancer (12), and there is now hope that understanding autoimmune mechanisms might serve as a lesson for the development of new anticancer therapies. The functional plasticity and therapeutic ductility of these cells (Figure 2) suggest that while MDSC inhibition might succeed as anticancer treatment, their induction is expected to provide therapeutic benefit in autoimmune diseases. FIGURE 2 Figure 2. Schematic role of MDSCs in pathology. Immunological stress induces the expansion of MDSCs that play different roles depending on distinct pathological and microenvironmental contexts. MDSCs are characterized by the strong ability to suppress ...

Authors: Musio F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia has and will continue to be a central theme in medicine particularly as clinicians are treating a burgeoning population of complex multi-organ system processes. As a result of multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and societal recommendations overly restrictive paradigms and under-administration of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) have likely been followed by clinicians among all specialties. AREAS COVERED: A review of anemia in the context of chronic kidney disease, hematologic malignancies and cancer is presented with focus on the e...

Authors: Mosquera J, Pedreañez A Abstract Increasing evidence supports a central role of the immune system in acute post streptococcal glomerulonephritis (APSGN), but the current view of how streptococcal biology affects immunity, and vice versa, remains to be clarified. Renal glomerular immune complex deposition is critical in the initiation of APSGN; however, mechanisms previous to immune complex formation could modulate the initiation and the progression of the disease. Initial and late renal events involved in the nephritis can also be related to host factors and streptococcal factors. In this review we ...
