Bottom Line: We demonstrated that Th22, Th17, and pure Th17 in newly-diagnosed (ND) and non-complete remission (Non-CR) AML patients and plasma IL-22 in ND AML patients were significantly increased.Retinoid-related orphan receptor C (RORC) expression was significantly elevated in CR and Non-CR AML patients.However, Th1 in ND AML patients and IL-17 in ND, Non-CR or CR AML patients was significantly decreased compared with controls.

ABSTRACT
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a hematological tumor in which progress T helper (Th) subsets including Th22, Th17, and Th1 cells play a pivotal role. However, the role of T helper (Th) subsets in the immune pathogenesis of AML remains unclear. Here, we investigated frequencies of Th22, Th17, pure Th17, and Th1 cells in the peripheral blood (PB) of AML patients. We demonstrated that Th22, Th17, and pure Th17 in newly-diagnosed (ND) and non-complete remission (Non-CR) AML patients and plasma IL-22 in ND AML patients were significantly increased. Retinoid-related orphan receptor C (RORC) expression was significantly elevated in CR and Non-CR AML patients. However, Th1 in ND AML patients and IL-17 in ND, Non-CR or CR AML patients was significantly decreased compared with controls. Moreover, Th22 and IL-22 showed positive correlation with pure Th17, but Th22 showed negative correlation with Th1 in ND AML patients. RORC showed positive correlation with Th22 and approximately positive correlation with pure Th17 in Non-CR patients. PB blast cell showed positive correlation with Th22 and negative correlation with Th1 in ND AML patients. Our results indicate that Th22 and pure Th17 cells conjointly contribute to the pathogenesis of AML and might be promising novel clinical index for AML.

Correlations between Th subsets and cytokines in AML patients. (A) A positive correlation was found between Th22 cells and pure Th17 cells in ND AML patients; (B) A negative correlation between Th22 cells and Th1 cells in ND AML patients; (C) Plasma IL-22 showed a positive correlation with pure Th17 cells in ND AML patients.

(A) A positive correlation was found between Th22 cells and pure Th17 cells in ND AML patients; (B) A negative correlation between Th22 cells and Th1 cells in ND AML patients; (C) Plasma IL-22 showed a positive correlation with pure Th17 cells in ND AML patients.

Mentions: Additionally, we observed that the elevated plasma concentration of IL-22 was positively correlated to the frequency of pure Th17 cells in ND AML patients (r = 0.43, p = 0.0497) (Figure 4C). However, no correlation was found between IL-22 and Th17 cells, as well as IL-17 in ND AML patients.
