Abstract [en]

A hallmark of active celiac disease (CD), an inflammatory small-bowel enteropathy caused by permanent intolerance to gluten, is cytokine production by intestinal T lymphocytes. Prerequisites for contracting CD are that the individual carries the MHC class II alleles HLA-DQ2 and/or HLA-DQ8 and is exposed to gluten in the diet. Dysbiosis in the resident microbiota has been suggested to be another risk factor for CD. In fact, rod shaped bacteria adhering to the small intestinal mucosa were frequently seen in patients with CD during the "Swedish CD epidemic" and bacterial candidates could later be isolated from patients born during the epidemic suggesting long-lasting changes in the gut microbiota. Interleukin-17A (IL-17A) plays a role in both inflammation and anti-bacterial responses. In active CD IL-17A was produced by both CD8(+) T cells (Tc17) and CD4(+) T cells (Th17), with intraepithelial Tc17 cells being the dominant producers. Gluten peptides as well as CD associated bacteria induced IL-17A responses in ex vivo challenged biopsies from patients with inactive CD. The IL-17A response was suppressed in patients born during the epidemic when a mixture of CD associated bacteria was added to gluten, while the reverse was the case in patients born after the epidemic. Under these conditions Th17 cells were the dominant producers. Thus Tc17 and Th17 responses to gluten and bacteria seem to pave the way for the chronic disease with interferon-γ-production by intraepithelial Tc1 cells and lamina propria Th1 cells. The CD associated bacteria and the dysbiosis they might cause in the resident microbiota may be a risk factor for CD either by directly influencing the immune responses in the mucosa or by enhancing inflammatory responses to gluten.

Abstract [en]

Celiac disease (CD) is an immune-mediated enteropathy caused by permanent intolerance to dietary gliadin in wheat gluten and related prolamines in barley and rye. The pathogenesis of CD is still unknown and several different environmental factors have been associated with CD, such as dysbiosis of the microflora. In this translational study we investigated the immune status and the interplay of T-cells and Tregs in the mucosa of children with CD and controls, as well as the immune status in treated CD patients, provoked by either dietary oats, CD associated bacteria or gluten.

The major findings in the studies were: First, indicators of extrathymic T-cells maturation (ETCM), i.e., the RAG1 enzyme required for recombination of the T cell receptor (TCR) genes and the preTα-surrogate chain in the immature TCR, were both expressed at lower levels in CD patients compared to controls. In addition, IELs expressing RAG1 were less abundant in CD patients compared to controls. The levels of these two indicators stayed low in treated CD patients as well, suggesting that impaired capacity of ETCM is an inherent feature of CD patients. Second, IL-17A, a cytokine involved in both inflammation and anti-bacterial responses was increased in active CD. The major cellular source was CD8+IELs. Furthermore, ex vivo challenge of biopsies from treated CD patients with gluten and with CD-associated bacteria induced an IL-17A response. The CD-associated bacteria also influenced the magnitude of the IL-17A response to gluten. Third, we investigated the effect of dietary oats on local immune status in the intestinal mucosa by comparing CD patients receiving GFD with and without oats. 22 different mRNAs for immunity effector molecules and tight junction proteins were analyzed. We found that expression of two down-regulatory cytokines, two activating NK-receptors and the tight-junction protein claudin-4 normalized in patients on a standard GFD while they did not normalize in patients on a GFD with oats. Fourth, we analyzed the expression level of mRNAs for chemokines, cytotoxic effector molecules, NK-receptors and their ligands in IELs and epithelial cells. Expression levels of several of these genes follow disease activity, suggesting massive recruitment of immune cells by both cell types accompanied by increased IEL-mediated cytotoxicity in the epithelium of inflamed mucosa.

In this thesis we have identified three potential risk factors for development of CD: 1) an inherent lower level of ETCM in the small intestinal mucosa than in controls. This could lead to decreased generation of regulatory T cells and less capacity to tolerate gluten and adapt to the local milieu in the mucosa. 2) Dysbiosis of the resident microbiota with increased IL-17A production that could promote local inflammation and immune cell infiltration as well as antibacterial reactions. 3) Dietary oats may provoke a local immune response in a sub-population of CD patients. These patients should probably avoid oats in their GFD but larger studies are needed.
