Sammanfattning

Background/objective: 17 beta-estradiol (E2) has major effects on the immune system. It induces thymic atrophy, inhibits both T and B lymphopoiesis and stimulates antibody production treatment with E2 has protective effects on the skeleton but is associated with negative side effects in reproductive organs. A tissue-selective estrogen complex (TSEC) comprise of estrogens combined with a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SEEM). TSEC therapy displays the bone-protective effects of estrogen, while the negative side effects on reproductive organs are blocked by the SERM. In a recent publication we showed that treatment with the TSEC E2 + bazedoxifene (bza) potently inhibits experimental arthritis and associated osteoporosis. In order to elucidate immunological mechanisms involved in those effects, the aim of this study was to investigate how E2 + bza treatment affects the healthy immune system. Methods: Ovariectomized C57BL/6N mice were treated with vehicle, E2, bza or E2 + bza. Weights of uterus and thymus were determined and fluorescence-activated cell sorting was used to analyze B cell populations in bone marrow and spleen. Immunoglobulin production from B cells in bone marrow and spleen were determined using ELISPOT. Results: Addition of bza to E2-treatment totally antagonized the E2-mediated proliferative effect on uterus. On the contrary, addition of bza to E2-treatment did not block the E2-induced thymic atrophy or inhibition of B lymphopoiesis, and did not block the E2-induced increase in immunoglobulin secretion from bone marrow B cells. Conclusions: Addition of bza to E2-treatment blocks E2-induced uteroproliferation but does not alter E2-mediated effects on thymus, B lymphopoiesis or B cell function.
