Transplant rejection averted by simple light exposure in Stanford animal study
STANFORD, Calif. - One of the unfortunate side effects of bone marrow and stem cell transplantation is that the newly implanted cells often stage an internal attack against the patient they're intended to help. Stanford University School of Medicine researchers now have a better grasp of this phenomenon, known as graft-versus-host disease, or GVHD, and have proposed a possible method of prevention: simple ultraviolet light. In a new animal study, researchers identified the principal culprit in GVHD: an immune cell in the skin known as a Langerhans cell. These cells normally function as flag posts for the immune system, signaling infection-fighting T-cells to come to a particular site to fight off a virus or bacteria. But in transplants, they do patients a great disservice, alerting T-cells to attack the patient's own tissues, researchers found. The researchers were able to effectively eliminate the Langerhans cells in transplanted mice by exposing them to ultraviolet light, giving the animals mild sunburn. Transplanted mice that received this treatment experienced no GVHD while those that didn't showed severe signs of the disease, said Edgar Engleman, MD, professor of pathology and medicine and senior author of the study.

Graft versus host disease occurs in any situation in which immunologically competent cells or their precursors are transplanted into immunologically compromised recipients (Eg- In leukemia, aplastic anaemia and certain immunodeficiency states). GVHD is one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality following bone marrow transplantation. Early acute phase:
Acute phase begins between 7 and 21 days after transplantation.
Besides the cutaneous lesions, the patient also complains of vomiting,diarrhoea and hepatic dysfuncton.
Cutaneous lesions include:
- Erythematous macular rash.
- Occasionally follicular papules resembling folliculitis.
- In severe cases, erythematous to violaceous scaling lesions and even blisters.
-Very rarely toxic epidermal necrolysis may occur. Late chronic phase: Chronic phase develops between several months to a year after the transplantation. 1. Early lichenoid phase (both oral and cutaneous lesions clinically resemble lichen planus.

Graft versus Host Disease The morphological features of intestinal GVHD and acute rejection share a great degree of similarity. Both conditions histologically manifest with crypt cell apoptosis and pathogenetically show increased expression of TNF-a and involvement of cytotoxic T lymphocytes. The morphological similarities are most striking with latter instances of acute rejection in which apoptosis tends to be more pronounced and cellular infiltration is often less severe. In the latter episodes of acute rejection, the allograft gut-associated lymphoid tissue has been replaced by recipient lymphoid cells and immune reactivity is directed primarily at epithelial and stromal cells. Therefore, the overall immunologic process in latter episodes of acute rejection are more akin to GVHD. Obviously, because of the morphological similarities between acute rejection and GVHD, histological diagnosis of intestinal GVHD can only be made in the biopsies obtained from the native intestine.

Microscopically, graft versus host disease is one of the best examples of a process called "apoptosis" or single cell necrosis. There is vacuolization and dissolution of epidermal cells along the basal layer, along with lymphocytes. At the arrow is a rounded pink apoptotic body.
