Abstract

The lymph node and bone marrow microenvironments promote the survival and proliferation of CLL cells. Defining the immunophenotype of CLL cells from the tumor microenvironment may help to better understand the mechanisms of action of current therapies and identify novel drug targets. Significant changes in the levels of 25 CD antigens were identified using the DotScan™ antibody microarray following CLL-cell culture with CD40L-expressing fibroblasts. Ibrutinib or idelalisib countered the change in expression of 11 of these antigens (CD23, CD27, CD53, CD58, CD71, CD80, CD84, CD97, CD126, CD150, and FMC7), which have known roles in cell activation and adhesion. The immunophenotypic changes identified may provide further insight into the mechanisms by which CLL cells interact with the tumor microenvironment and better define how ibrutinib and idelalisib release CLL cells from the lymph nodes and bone marrow.
