Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To compare the different expressions of CD27, CD28, IL-17A, IFN-γ and TNF-α in the peripheral blood sampled from patients with colorectal carcinoma and healthy volunteers.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Vδ2 T cells were isolated from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of patients with the colorectal carcinoma (CRC, n = 30) and healthy controls (HC, n = 21). The proportion of CD27, CD28, IL-17A, IFN-γ and TNF-α of Vδ2 T cells was detected by the flow cytometry.

RESULTS:

We found that the proportion of IL-17A of Vδ2 T cells in PBMCs was higher in the CRC vs. the HC group (p < 0.05). A significant positive correlation was observed between the expression of IFN-γ and TNF-α of Vδ2 T cells. In the CRC patients, the proportions of IL-17A of CD27- Vδ2 T cells and CD28+ Vδ2 T cells were higher than those of CD27+ Vδ2 T cells and CD28- Vδ2 T cells, whereas the expression of IFN-γ and TNF-α of CD27-Vδ2 T cells was lower than that of CD27+ Vδ2 T cells.

CONCLUSIONS:

Vδ2 T cells from PBMCs had higher expression of IL-17A in CRC patients than that in the HC group. The expression of IFN-γ and TNF-α of Vδ2 T cells from PBMCs was positively correlated. The cytokine profiles of peripheral Vδ2 T cells were likely determined by a CD27 and CD28 involving mechanism.
