PROBLEM: Local adaptive cervical regulatory T cells (Tregs) are the most likely direct suppressors of the immune eradication of cervical intraepithelial lesion (CIN). PD-1 expression on T cells induces Tregs. No studies have quantitatively analyzed the Tregs and PD-1+ cells residing in CIN lesions. METHOD OF STUDY: Cervical lymphocytes were collected using cytobrushes from CIN patients and analyzed by FACS analysis. Comparisons were made between populations of cervical Tregs and PD-1+ CD4+ T cells in CIN regressors and non-regressors. RESULTS: A median of 11% of cervical CD4+ T cells were Tregs, while a median of 30% were PD-1+ cells. The proportions of cervical CD4+ T cells that were Tregs and/or PD-1+ cells were significantly lower in CIN regressors when compared with non-regressors. CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of cervical tolerogenic T cells correlates inversely with spontaneous regression of CIN. Cervical Tregs may play an important role in HPV-related neoplastic immunoevasion.
