Monocytes provide defense against infection and serve as progenitors for tissue macrophages and dendritic cells. Recruitment of monocytes to sites of infection begins with trafflcl
Our second aim i s to determine the Impact of GvHD on monocyte trafficking and to determine the role of Ly6Chi monocytes in the development of GvHD. We will aiso quantify inflammatory monocyte numbers in patients following allo-HSCT and correlate circulating monocyte levels with subsequent development of GvHD.
Our third aim addresses our hypothesis that changes in the intestinal microbota following allo-HSCT influence monocyte emigration from bone marrow. We will investigate changes in the intestinal microbiota during allo- HSCT using high-throughput 16S rDNA sequencing and correlate changes in the intestinal microbiota with circulating inflammatory monocyte levels and activation. The studies described in this project will identify in vivo mechanisms that drive reconstitution ofthe monocyte compartment and will define the role of the intestinal microbiota in re-establishing immune homeostasis following allo-HSCT.
Monocytes are a subset of blood cells that move from the bone marrow to tissues, where they can fight infections. The experiments we are proposing will determine which factors following bone marrow transplantation are important for optimal reconstitution of monocytes. These studies may lead to new approaches to minimize infections and graft versus host disease following transplantation.
