Abstract

Defect in T lymphocyte homeostasis could implicate initiation and development of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Since PD-1 plays a key role in the regulation of T lymphocytes, its expression pattern in various CD8+ T cell subsets could be so effective in RA pathogenesis. Here, we investigated the expression of PD-1 and CXCR3 on CD8+CD28- T cells in association with the IFN-γ levels in patients with RA. A total of 42 RA patients, including 10 newly-diagnosed (ND) and 32 relapsed (RL) cases and also 20 healthy donors were enrolled. Phenotypic characterization of CD8+ T cells derived from peripheral blood (PB) and synovial fluid (SF) was performed by flow cytometry. The plasma and SF IFN-γ levels were also assessed by ELISA. The frequency of CD8+CD28- T cells showed no significant differences between patients and controls while its higher levels were observed in PB, versus SF of RL patients. Relapsed patients also showed higher CXCR3 and especially PD-1 expression on their CD8+CD28- T cells. The IFN-γ concentration was elevated in SF of ND patients while its plasma level was significantly lower in RL subgroup than controls. Although PD-1 could induce immune suppression in effector T cells, it is upregulated during inflammation and its overexpression on CD8+CD28- T cells within inflammatory synovium is associated with severity of disease in our cohort of RA patients. © 2020 European Federation of Immunological Societies
