Abstract in Portuguese
A Imunodeficiência de Variável Comum (ICV) é caracterizada por baixos níveis de imunoglobulinas com susceptibilidade a. Analisamos a distribuição de linfócitos, apoptose espontânea e a expressão gênica de receptores de morte, ligantes, adaptadores, moléculas reguladoras, inibidoras e anti-apotóticas em células CD4+ e CD8+ de 19 pacientes ICV e 19 controles. Pacientes com ICV apresentam diminuição na frequência de linfócitos TCD4+ e CD4+CD45RA+ e menor relação CD4/CD8 que indivíduos saudáveis. O grupo de pacientes mostrou maior frequência de apoptose espontânea em linfócitos totais e CD4+. Células CD4+ dos indivíduos afetados apresentaram menor expressão gênica de TRAIL-R, BCL-2, FLIPL e FADD; células CD8+ apresentaram diminuição da expressão gênica de TRAIL, FADD, BCL-2, BCL -xL e um aumento de FLIPs. Os resultados sugerem um desequilíbrio nos mecanismos que controlam a apoptose de linfócitos nestes pacientes, o que pode ajudar a elucidar as alterações observadas no compartimento de células T dos pacientes com ICV.

Abstract in English
Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID) is is characterized by low immunoglobulins levels with susceptibility to infections. We have analyzed T cell distribution and spontaneous apoptosis in peripheral blood of CVID, as well as gene expression of several molecules involved in apoptosis, including death receptors, ligands, adapters, regulatory and anti-apototic molecules in CD4+ and CD8+ cells of 19 CVID patients and 19 healthy subjects. CVID subjects present decreased frequency of TCD4+ and CD4+ CD45RA+ cells and lower CD4/CD8 ratio than healthy controls. CVID group also presented higher frequency of spontaneous apoptosis in lymphocytes and CD4+ cells. CD4+ showed lower expression of TRAIL-R, BCL-2, FLIPL and FADD; CD8+ cells presented lower expression of TRAIL, FADD, BCL-2, BCL-xL and a augment of FLIP. Results suggest an imbalance in mechanisms controlling cell death of those patients lymphocytes, which might help to elucidate the changes observed in T cell compartment of CVID patients.
