This is in part because it is difficult to study both the kinetics of peptide uptake and the bio-distribution of peptides. Access to better immunological tools to track the antigen-specific T cells will undoubtedly help our understanding; this includes further development of both tetramers and ex vivo assays that selectively stimulate antigen-specific cells It is generally believed that peptide therapy induces a population of IL secreting regulatory T cells.

However, this is primarily based on in vivo data from mouse studies that have clearly demonstrated expansion of an IL secreting, regulatory T-cell population following sub-cutaneous administration of peptide Translation of this mechanism into the clinical setting is still to be proven and may well depend on the route of administration of the peptides.

Nonetheless, as discussed earlier, circulating IL producing, antigen-specific CD4 T cells have been observed post-intra-dermal peptide administration in studies in T1D patients and this mode of action remains a major focus of attention.

Once the technologies and assays have been further refined so that tracking of antigen-specific T cells, both pathogenic and regulatory, can be accomplished, additional questions can start to be addressed. Importantly, degrees of clinical efficacy can begin to be correlated with both the frequency of regulatory T-cell expansion and the phenotype of the expanded regulatory T cells. It will also be important to understand the longevity of the effect and whether this is dependent on the phenotype of the regulatory T cell.

It may be that the different routes of administration of peptides and the newly emerging targeted technologies mentioned previously lead to the generation of different populations of regulatory T cells.

It is not inconceivable to think that different diseases may be better treated by induction of one particular population of regulatory T cell versus another.

In addition, different stages of progression within the same disease may be more amenable to treatment by one subset of regulatory T cell over another.

This may be particularly true for diseases where there is significant epitope spreading. One must also acknowledge that administration of peptide therapy alone may not be sufficient to prevent disease in an inflammatory setting.


In this setting, the peptide therapy may indeed be inducing a population of regulatory T cells, but the inflammatory environment may also be driving a pathogenic T-cell population, which is not adequately suppressed by the regulatory cells.

Therapies that directly inhibit the pathogenic T cell while sparing the regulatory T cell would be optimal under these circumstances. These could include therapies that target the APC to prevent full activation, achieved for example using antibodies against CD Alternatively, therapies that inhibit effector T-cell function directly could be beneficial. Modulation of the cytokine milieu may also synergize with the efficacy of peptide therapy. This could be achieved via direct inhibition of the proinflammatory cytokines secreted by the pathogenic T cell or inhibition of cytokines responsible for maturation of the APC.


While the challenges are undoubtedly there, peptide therapy does offer a significant opportunity to restore immune regulation in T1D and other autoimmune diseases. Further clinical studies and technological advances will hopefully translate peptide therapy into a safe, effective, and highly specific novel class of therapeutics.

Author Contributions ES wrote the review and was involved in designing the figures. MP was involved in designing the figures and supervised the writing and editing of the manuscript. MP receives research funds and honoraria from UCB. Current state of type 1 diabetes treatment in the U. Diabetes Care 38 6 —8. The basic immunological processes are described first, with a level of detail restricted to what is appropriate for medical and similar curricula.

In the second part of the book, immunological mechanisms behind major diseases of the various body systems are explained. Throughout the text clinical details are highlighted and more in-depth material is differentiated from the main text.

Methods We have chosen what we consider to be some of the most exciting recent discoveries in immunology, focusing on subjects in which the frontiers of basic immunological research are shaping up to give rise to clinical applications in the next decade. Innate Immunity: Cellular Mechanisms Several cellular mechanisms are present and functional at birth and constitute the innate cellular immune system.

Until recently, the CD4 molecule was believed to be the only receptor that HIV uses to enter lymphocytes, but not all of the experimental data supported this. In the second part of the book, immunological mechanisms behind major diseases of the various body systems are explained.

They leave via efferent lymphatic, ultimately passing through the thoracic duct then into the venous system. Each lymphocyte carries Igs or T-cells receptor molecules of only a single specificity on its surface.
