  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Mycobacterium bovis Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG), killed by extended freeze-drying (EFD), induces secretion of interleukin-10 and reduces lung inflammation in a mouse model of asthma. We investigated the effects of EFD BCG in mouse models of inflammatory bowel disease.

METHODS: EFD BCG was administered subcutaneously to mice with colitis induced by dextran sodium sulfate (DSS), oxazolone, or adoptive transfer of CD4(+)CD45RB(high)Foxp3(-) T cells from C57Bl/6 Foxp3GFP mice to RAG2(-/-) mice.

RESULTS: EFD BCG, administered either before induction of DSS and oxazolone colitis or after development of acute or chronic DSS-induced colitis, reduced symptom scores, loss of body weight, and inflammation. Although transfer of CD4(+)CD45RB(high)Foxp3(-) cells induced colitis in RAG2(-/-) mice, administration of EFD BCG at the time of the transfer converted Foxp3(-) T cells to Foxp3(+) T cells and the mice did not develop colitis. EFD BCG protected mice from colitis via a mechanism that required expansion of T regulatory cells and production of interleukin-10 and transforming growth factor β. EFD BCG activated the retinoid X receptor (RXR)-α-peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-γ heterodimer, blocked translocation of nuclear factor κB to the nucleus, and reduced colonic inflammation; it did not increase the number of colon tumors that formed in mice with chronic DSS-induced colitis.

CONCLUSIONS: EFD BCG controls severe colitis in mice by expanding T regulatory cell populations and PPAR-γ and might be developed to treat patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
