The Future Role of Stem Cells in Antimicrobial Therapies KHALID AL-ANAZI Dubai November 2015 Topics to be covered 12345- Introduction to various types of stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs): Sources & distinguishing features
Evolving clinical indications Complications of MSCs & existing challenges Tracking of MSCs final conclusions Types of Stem Cells (1) Totipotent stem cells: zygote + [2 to 4] cell embryo - Capable of giving rise to the entire organism (embryonic and non-embryonic tissues) (2) Multipotent stem cells; adult stem cells: ** Mesenchymal stem cells (3) Pluripotent stem cells: embryonic stem cells & embryonic germ cells: * Can give rise to derivatives of all 3 germ layers
* There are 2 types of pluripotent stem cells (PSCs): [a] Embryonic stem cells (ESCs): - Derived from the inner cell mass of the mammalian blastocyte. - Have the potential to form any cell type in the body. [b] Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs): - Somatic cells reprogrammed to a pluripotent state by exogenous expression of transcription factors. - Liras A, et al. In-Tech 2013 - Arora N, et al. Cold Spring Harb Perspect Med 2012 Sources of MSCs 1- Bone marrow 2- Peripheral blood

Accepted roles MSCs during infection Details and explanations Main effect / mechanism Phase - Engagement of TLR-mediated signaling pathways Detection of pathogens and damage 1 - Recruitment of MSCs at the sites of infection
signals - Maintenance of quiescent HSC pool Activation of host immune response 2 Elimination of pathogens 3 - BM emigration of activated HSCs
- Mobilization and emigration of immune effector cells from BM. - Thymic development to augment response of immune effector cells - Production of microbiocidal soluble factors - Containment of infectious pathogen within micro-environment [ pathogen phagocytosis ] - Antioxidant soluble factor (HO-1) Induction - Antiinflammatory soluble factors such as: IDO, PGFZ, IL-10, gradients
of pro-inflammatory 4 TGF-B, TGF-6, HLA-G5 and Galectin-1 - Activation of function, differentiation and migration of immune effector cells. - Augmentation of wound healing - Enhancement of revascularization - Inhibition of tissue toxicity - Modulation of inflammation and organ dysfunction.

Other Studies on MSCs in HSCT ** 3 studies on the use of MSCs in Rx of steroid-refractory GVHD & 2 studies on the use of MSCs in GVHD prevention showed no increase in the incidence of viral, bacterial or fungal infections. - Kurtzberg J et al Biol BMT 2013 Fang B et al Transplant Proc 2007 Lucchini G et al Stem Cell Int 2012

** Transplantation Arm [Auto-BM-MSCs]: 120 ml of BM were obtained, diluted then separated BM-MSCs were slowly transfused through hepatic arteries Procedure was successful & no immediate side effects encountered T. Bil, Albumin, PT & Liver Enzymes improved within 2-3 weeks of Tx No significant difference in long-term outcome.

Conclusions - Stem cells including MSCs may become very promising novel therapeutic for various infections in high-risk patients in the near future. - MSCs may reshape the future of antimicrobial therapies and may become curative for several chronic and intractable infections. -
However, this field is still in its infancy and plenty of research & clinical trials are required to refine the therapeutic roles of MSCs. - Complications related to stem
cell therapies should not be underestimated. -
The remaining challenges facing the clinical applications of MSCs need to be resolved. - Banking of MSCs is vital to make them readily available for use. - For collection, culture, cryopreservation & clinical utilization of MSCs, strict guidelines, standardization of techniques & quality control measures are vital.
