Recent developments of surrogate assays for human hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) have facilitated efforts at improving HSC gene transfer efficiency. Through the use of xenograft transplantation models, such as nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficiency (NOD/SCID) mice, successful oncoretroviral gene transfer to transplantable hematopoietic cells has been achieved. However, because of the low frequency and/or homing efficiency of SCID repopulating cells (SRC) in bone marrow (BM), studies have primarily focused on cord blood (CB). The recently developed extended (| 60 days) long-term culture-initiating cell (ELTC-IC) assay detects an infrequent and highly quiescent candidate stem cell population in BM as well as CB of the CD34(+)CD38(-) phenotype. Although these characteristics suggest that ELTC-IC and SRC might be closely related, attempts to oncoretrovirally transduce ELTC-IC have been unsuccessful. Here, recently developed conditions (high concentrations of SCF + FL + Tpo in serum-free medium)
The SCID mouse model for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an established and reliable approach to examining the distinct mechanisms operative in RA synovium, and evaluating novel gene therapy strategies. However, serum concentrations of circulating gene therapy products following gene transfer are frequently too low to allow detection. This problem stimulated us to develop a novel implantation technique to improve the yield of these soluble gene products. Synovial fibroblasts from patients with RA were cultured, passaged, and transduced with Ad5 sTNFRp55:Ig. sTNFRp55:Ig production was confirmed by ELISA, and then cells were implanted into SCID mice using a novel implantation strategy in which pieces of human cartilage were engrafted into a fibroblast-saturated inert sponge. Thereafter, the sponges were implanted under the skin of the mice instead of under the kidney capsule, as in the original approach, allowing co-implantation of larger pieces of cartilage together with higher numbers of ...

To investigate infectious agents prospectively, suitable in vivo laboratory models are needed. This poses a problem in research involving such human-specific pathogens as HIV. To this end, xenochimeric models have been developed by transplanting immunodeficient mice with cellular targets of HIV, i.e., either human PBL (8, 9) or pieces of human fetal tissues such as liver and thymus containing hematopoietic cells (SCID-hu) (10, 11); although suitable to study some aspects of HIV in vivo, both models are limited by systematic issues (1). Human PBL transplanted into SCID mice (hu-PBL-SCID) are activated within the xenogeneic environment, T cells become successively anergic, and, because of lack of both continuing hematopoiesis and appropriate hu-PBL maintenance, the xenograft is nonfunctional within several weeks (1, 9). In contrast, mice transplanted with human fetal liver and thymus (SCID-hu) de novo generate and maintain human cells, especially T cells, within the human thymus graft (10). ...
If a child is diagnosed and treated within the first few months of life before the child has a serious infection, then the long-term survival rate is more than 90%. With early treatment, most children with SCID should be able to develop their own working immune system. The best course of treatment for a child with SCID depends on several factors including the type of SCID, the childs health, and doctor recommendations.. Most infants with SCID are treated with HSCT, or bone marrow transplant, which results in a new immune system that is able to fight infection. In HSCT, doctors take healthy blood-forming cells that can develop into a healthy immune system from a donor and put them into a child. The donor cells provide the child with an immune system.. Another less common but promising treatment option is gene therapy, which is currently in clinical trials. In gene therapy, doctors extract a childs defective blood-forming cells, correct the defect, and put the corrected cells back into the ...
The study is the first combined analysis of more than 3 million infants screened for SCID in 10 states and the Navajo Nation. Infants from participating programs born from the start of the first pilot program in January 2008 through July 2013 were included.. In May, 2010, SCID was the 29th condition added to the national recommended uniform panel for newborn screened disorders, and California began screening newborns statewide on August 15, 2010, just four years ago. Currently, 23 states conduct newborn screening for SCID, and the test is performed for nearly two-thirds of infants born across the country. "Now that infants with SCID are being detected at a very young age, we can tailor protection and early treatment for them while they are still healthy, without having to also treat the complications from infections that result from the disease. This leads to the best outcomes in terms of survival and immune reconstitution," said senior author Jennifer Puck, MD, a pediatric immunologist at UCSF ...
On February 26, 2009 Barb was at the meeting today where the advisory committee voted on whether or not to add SCID to the panel for newborn screening. Unfortunately, they voted NO. However, Barb did say that we shouldnt give up hope. "For now they voted against recommending SCID to the Secretary for newborn screening. BUT, they want to see if certain criteria can be met and then they will revote. A group of committee members are supposed to work out the criteria tonight and tell the committee in the morning exactly what they want to see. One thing they want to see is if either the Wisconsin or Mass pilot programs find a SCID baby. Neither one has, although theyve found 2 DiGeorge babies that wouldnt have been picked up yet and Wisconsin found a baby with a neutrophil defect that is so rare that its only the 2nd case diagnosed. They reported that the baby has now had a successful transplant. That child wouldnt have lived if it were not for the Wisconsin pilot study.". Im so sorry that I ...

Abstract: Over the last years novel genetic defects causing SCID have been discovered, and the molecular and immunological mechanisms of SCID have been better characterized. Distinct forms of SCID show both common and peculiar (e.g., absence or presence of nonimmunological features) aspects, and they are currently classified into six groups according to prevalent pathophysiological mechanisms: impaired cytokine-mediated signaling; pre-T cell receptor defects; increased lymphocyte apoptosis; defects in thymus embryogenesis; impaired calcium flux; other mechanisms.This review is the updated, extended and largely modified translation of the article "Cossu F: Le basi genetiche delle SCID", originally published in Italian language in the journal "Prospettive in Pediatria" 2009, 156:228-238.The initial clinical manifestations of SCID (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency), a heterogeneous group of genetic defects with an overall incidence of about 1 in 40,000 to 75,000 newborns [1-3], are most frequently ...

Severe combined immunodeficiency (Scid) mice have defects in V(D)J recombination and DNA double-strand breaks repair caused by an inherited genetic defect in the catalytic subunit of DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PKcs). Scid mice are highly susceptible to development of T-cell lymphomas, and because of the nature of its association with DNA repair and recombination, DNA-PKcs is considered to belong to the caretaker class of tumor suppressor genes. In the present study, the susceptibility of Scid mice to colon carcinogenesis due to administration of azoxymethane (AOM) was investigated. Significantly higher susceptibility in terms of induction of both aberrant crypt foci (ACFs), putative pre-cancerous lesions of the colon and colon cancers was observed as compared with the isogenic strain, C.B-17 mice. The incidences of colon tumors, either adenomas or adenocarcinomas, in Scid and C.B-17 mice after administration of AOM (10 mg/kg body weight/week) for 6 weeks were 87% (26 of 30) and 50% (15 of ...

Mice that received labeled cells demonstrated ...
Abstract: Objective. To explore the therapeutic potential of CD147/HAb18 mAb in the treatment of RA in severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) mice engrafted with human cartilage and rheumatoid synovium tissue (SCID-HuRAg).. Methods. SCID-HuRAg mice were treated separately with CD147/HAb18 mAb, anti-TNF- mAb or a combination of both. The mice in control group were treated with anti-Japanese encephalitis virus mAb. The volume of engrafts was measured and the number of inflammatory cells and cartilage erosion score were examined. Expression of MMP-2, -3 and -9 was determined by immunohistochemistry. Human inflammatory cytokine levels in mouse sera were assessed using cytometric bead array kit.. Results. The volume of engrafts decreased significantly in SCID-HuRAg mice treated separately with anti-CD147 mAb or anti-TNF- mAb, and in the mice treated with anti-CD147 mAb plus anti-TNF- mAb (P , 0.05). Significant reduction was observed in cartilage erosion score in anti-CD147 treatment group and ...
Mice with the autosomal recessive severe combined immune deficiency (scid) mutation lack mature lymphocytes because of defective joining of T cell receptor and immunoglobulin (Ig) gene segments. Penetrance of this mutation is incomplete since 10-25% of SCID mice produce some T or B lymphocytes. This "leaky" phenotype could be due to a reversion of the mutation in some mice or to a constant, low frequency of functional lymphocytes generated in all SCID mice with variable survival of such cells. We report here that all SCID mice can be stimulated to produce functional B cells by the transfer of normal neonatal, but not adult, T cells. T cell-induced rescue of C.B-17scid B cells results in high levels of Ig expressing the Ighb allotype of the SCID recipient. These results show that all SCID mice generate some functional B cells, the majority of which do not survive in the absence of a subset of T cells present in high frequency in the neonate ...
As for lung cancer, investigators have chosen a number to utilize xenograft models of CaP. Unfortunately, CaP xenografts are far more fastidious than lung cancer xenografts, and the generation of models that are representative of typical human disease has only recently been accomplished. Until recently, the majority of research conducted for CaP relied on the cell lines PC-3, DU145, and LNCaP. Among these, only LNCaP cells exhibit androgen responsiveness and express the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and androgen receptor (AR). Thus, the relevance of DU-145 and PC-3 cells to clinical CaP has been questioned. To overcome the shortage of representative models of human CaP, a number of investigators began establishing xenografts in immune-deficient scid/scid mice using samples obtained directly from patients [145-149]. These xenografts offered the following advantages: (1) the expansion of small amounts of starting clinical material, (2) the enrichment of relatively homogeneous cell populations ...
In contrast with the rapid progress in the characterization of murine CD34− HSCs, the analysis of human HSCs has proceeded more slowly. In 1997, Goodell et al. reported on human and monkey SP cells that showed a rapid Hoechst dye efflux activity. These SP cells were lineage-marker negative, revealed a highly enriched long-term culture-initiating cell (LTC-IC) capacity, and developed into CD34+ cells after stroma-supported cell culture [21], thereby suggesting that these HSCs were CD34−.. In a NOD/SCID mouse model, Bhatia et al. first described a novel HSC population from human cord blood (CB) samples with a Lin−CD34−CD38− phenotype [28]. These cells had low clonogenic activity in vitro, but remarkably, regenerated multilineage hematopoiesis in NOD/SCID mice. Of interest was that these CD34− HSCs could differentiate into CD34+ cells, resulting in a greater repopulating activity in cytokine-supported short-term cultures (2-4 days), whereas CD34+ HSCs lost their stem cell potential in ...
The SCID-hu mouse, engrafted with human hematolymphoid organs, is permissive for infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This mouse model was used to test compounds for antiviral efficacy. Two weeks after infection with HIV, 100 percent (40/40) of SCID-hu mice were positive for HIV by the polymerase chain reaction. When first treated with 3-azido-3-deoxythymidine (AZT), none (0/17) were HIV-positive by this assay. However, AZT-treated SCID-hu mice did have a few infected cells; after AZT treatment was stopped, viral spread was detected by polymerase chain reaction in such mice. Thus, the SCID-hu mouse provides a means to directly compare new antiviral compounds with AZT and to further improve antiviral efficacy. ...
The relative efficiency of human HSC engraftment was the most important component of our comparison. Human HSCs are assayed by the functional SRC assay in which limiting numbers of cells are transplanted into NOD-scid mice and assayed for multilineage differentiation. Numerous studies from our group and others have enriched for SRCs based on sorting for CD34 and CD38 expression such that approximately 1 in 121 CD34+CD38−Lin− CB cells are SRCs in NOD/Lt-scid mice. In this study, we used a less enriched population, Lin− CB, and found approximately 1 in 6500 cells are SRCs in NOD/Lt-scid mice and 1 in 1800 cells in NSG mice. Thus, NSG mice were 3.6-fold more sensitive in detecting SRCs. Based on limiting dilution analysis in NSG mice, we found an approximate 9-fold improvement in SRC frequency in female mice compared with NOD/Lt-scid mice. Death of most male NOD/Lt-scid mice precluded accurate determination of SRC frequency (data not shown). The discovery of sex differences when limiting ...
The need for developing improved tumor xenograft models for evaluating anti-cancer therapies is essential as has previously been documented (27). The development of new genetically modified immunodeficient mouse models has greatly facilitated the successful engraftment and prolonged survival of normal and neoplastic human tissues (14). These newer generations of "humanized" mice bearing human tissue xenografts have begun to provide valuable insights into complex human biological systems including hematopoiesis, innate and adaptive immunity, autoimmunity, infectious diseases, regenerative medicine, and cancer (14). Our goal has been to utilize severely immunodeficient mice to establish xenografts of human tumors that include both the tumor cells and the associated tumor stroma, i.e., fibroblasts and inflammatory leukocytes. The implantation of human lung (7) and ovarian tumors (17) into NSG mice resulted in the long-term engraftment of the tumor and the tumor-associated nonmalignant cells that ...

For the fields of hematology-oncology, regenerative medicine, and infectious diseases, the immune deficient mice have been used commonly in basic research efforts. Obstacles in true translational efforts abound, as the relationship between mouse and human cells in disease pathogenesis and therapeutic studies requires lengthy investigations. The interplay between human immunity and mouse biology proves ever more complicated when aging, irradiation, and human immune reconstitution ...
A fundamental question in cancer biology is whether cells with tumorigenic potential are common or rare within human cancers. Studies on diverse cancers, including melanoma, have indicated that only rare human cancer cells (0.1-0.0001%) form tumours when transplanted into non-obese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficiency (NOD/SCID) mice. However, the extent to which NOD/SCID mice underestimate the frequency of tumorigenic human cancer cells has been uncertain. Here we show that modified xenotransplantation assay conditions, including the use of more highly immunocompromised NOD/SCID interleukin-2 receptor gamma chain null (Il2rg -/-) mice, can increase the detection of tumorigenic melanoma cells by several orders of magnitude. In limiting dilution assays, approximately 25% of unselected melanoma cells from 12 different patients, including cells from primary and metastatic melanomas obtained directly from patients, formed tumours under these more permissive conditions. In single-cell ...
Although many biological mechanisms are similar in rodents and humans, there are several structural and functional differences that render the extrapolation of experimental results to clinical practice quite difficult. Multiple transgenic, knockout, and reconstituted models of autoimmune diseases have been developed over the past 2 decades. The creation of humanized mice, defined as immunodeficient mice engrafted with human hematopoietic stem cells or PBMCs, provided a powerful tool for preclinical testing of new immunomodulatory agents and study of human immune responses (25,28-36). This is particularly true in the case of ILT3, which, like other members of the Ig gene superfamily, has no ortholog in rodents.. In addition to T- and B-cell deficiency, NOD/SCID mice have functional defects of macrophages and natural killer cells (31-34) and high rates of human lymphocyte engraftment (34), providing a tool for studying human islet allograft rejection and the effect of immunomodulatory agents ...
Results presented in this study show that treatment with the combination of gemcitabine/doxorubicin improves the regulation of growth of HNSCC cells both in situ and in animal models, suggesting that this combination might offer an alternative treatment strategy against these cancers. Importantly, treatment of SCID mice bearing UM-SCC-22A xenografts with gemcitabine/doxorubicin combination significantly inhibited HNSCC tumor growth, which was concomitant with a significant increase in C18-ceramide levels. In addition, further analysis of a possible role for C18-ceramide, a product of LASS1 activity, in drug-induced cell death in situ, showed that treatment with gemcitabine/doxorubicin resulted in a significant increase in LASS1 expression and endogenous enzymatic activity of LASS1 for the generation of C18-ceramide in these cells. Mechanistically, the data obtained using molecular approaches either to partially inhibit or induce LASS1 expression in these cells revealed an important role of ...
The first SCID/BLAJ mouse model of dysferlinopathy was created by Dr. Ivan Torrente by backcrossing dysferlin deficient BLA/J mice onto the SCID strain while selecting for the retrotransposon insertion in intron 4 of the dysferlin gene, as well as the absence of specific B- and T- lymphocyte markers (CD4, CD8, and CD19) in cells isolated from peripheral blood. The result is a dysferlin deficient animal model that is also deficient in B and T lymphocytes, and thus more amenable to transplantation studies. Dr. Torrente made the mouse available to the reserach community in a private colony through the Jain Foundation, but due to low usage, the colony was cryopreserved.. The Jackson Laboratories created a second strain of SCID/BLAJ mice in their own laboratories in 2012, which are currently available in live repository.. Mutation ...
This is a monumental triumph to children born with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) and their families. Newborn screening will detect this problem early before complications develop, and allow for prompt life-saving interventions such as bone marrow transplantation. Usually the diagnosis of SCID is either missed or delayed until the age of 6-12 months of age, after patients suffer from severe and recurrent infections, and sometimes irreversible damage to organs such as the lungs. Newborn screening for SCID will no doubt save many lives and prevent suffering of children.". Professor Chaim Roifman, MD, ...
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been shown to migrate to various tissues. There is little information on the fate and potential therapeutic efficacy of the reinfusion of MSCs following total body irradiation (TBI). We addressed this question using human MSC (hMSCs) infused to nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient (NOD/SCID) mice submitted to TBI. Further, we tested the impact of additional local irradiation (ALI) superimposed to TBI, as a model of accidental irradiation. NOD/SCID mice were transplanted with hMSCs. Group 1 was not irradiated before receiving hMSC infusion. Group 2 received only TBI at a dose of 3.5 Gy, group 3 received local irradiation to the abdomen at a dose of 4.5 Gy in addition to TBI, and group 4 received local irradiation to the leg at 26.5 Gy in addition to TBI. Fifteen days after gamma irradiation, quantitative and spatial distribution of the hMSCs were studied. Histological analysis of mouse tissues confirmed the presence of radio-induced lesions in the ...
The imperative for better, more clinically predictive models of human cancer is obvious. Tumor graft models (also known as patient-derived xenografts, or PDX) are based on the transfer of primary tumors directly from the patient into an immunodeficient mouse. To accomplish this end, patient tumors must be obtained fresh from surgery, at which point they are mechanically or chemically digested, with a small portion saved as a primary stock, and established in a nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient (NOD/SCID) mouse. This breed of mouse lacks natural killer cells and is considered more immunodeficient than a nude mouse. PDX models are maintained by passaging cells directly from mouse to mouse once the tumor burden becomes too high. Tumors can be engrafted heterotopically or orthotopically. Heterotopic PDX models involve implanting tumors into the subcutaneous flank of a mouse. This method allows for easier cell transfer and precise monitoring of tumor growth and location (4). ...
Gene therapy is a way to change the genes a person has. The therapy is done by inserting a normal gene that a person is missing, or replacing a gene that is defective in some way.. An example of this type of therapy is for severe combined immunodeficiency disease (SCID). This is a very rare, life-threatening disease that a child may be born with. SCID causes a child to have very little or no immune system. This means he or she cant fight normal infections. SCID is also known as the "boy in the bubble" syndrome. Living in a normal environment can cause death to a child with a SCID. About 1 in 50,000 to 100,000 children is born with this disease.. Gene therapy for SCID is done by taking the childs blood and putting the normal gene into the blood cells. The child is then given a blood transfusion with his or her own blood that has the normal gene inserted. The gene then works itself into the immune system and lessens the symptoms of the disorder. Gene therapy is currently only available in ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Decreased homing of retrovirally transduced human bone marrow CD34 + cells in the NOD/SCID mouse model. AU - Hall, Kristin M.. AU - Horvath, Tamara L.. AU - Abonour, Rafat. AU - Cornetta, Kenneth. AU - Srour, Edward F.. PY - 2006/4/1. Y1 - 2006/4/1. N2 - Objective. Many clinical gene therapy trials have described poor engraftment of retrovirally transduced CD34+ cells. Because engraftment is dependent upon successful homing of graft cells to the bone marrow (BM), we examined whether retroviral-mediated gene transfer (RMGT) induces a homing defect in CD34+ cells. Methods. Homing of fluorescently labeled human BM CD34+ cells transduced with three separate retroviral vectors (MFG-eGFP, LNC-eGFP, and LXSN) was assessed in nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficient mice. Results. Homing of transduced CD34+ cells was significantly decreased 20 hours after transplantation compared with freshly isolated control and cultured untransduced control cells. Specifically, homing of GFP+ ...
A NOG (NOD/Shi-scid/IL-2Rγnull) mouse is a new generation of severely immunodeficient mouse, developed by Central Institute for Experimental Animals (CIEA) in 2000. The NOG mouse accepts heterologous cells much more easily compared with any other type of immunodeficient rodent models, such as, nude mouse and NOD/scid mouse. Thus, the mouse can be the best model as a highly efficient recipient of human cells to engraft, proliferate and differentiate. This unique feature offers a great opportunity for enhancing therapy researches of cancer, leukemia, visceral diseases, AIDS, and other human diseases. It also provides applications for cancer, infection, regeneration, and hematology researches. The NOG mouse was generated in CIEA in 2000 by back-cross mating of C57BL/6J-IL-2Rγnull mouse that was originally developed by Kazuo Sugamura, a professor of Tohoku University, to NOD/Shi-scid mouse that was developed in CIEA. No activity of T cell, B cell and NK cell Reduced complement system activity ...
