Abstract Loss of tolerance of the adaptive immune system towards indigenous flora contributes to the development of inflammatory bowel diseases IBD. Defects in dendritic cell DC-mediated innate and adoptive immune responses are conceivable. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of the inhibitory molecules CD200R1 and their ligand CD200 on DCs, to clarify the role of the DCs in the pathogenesis of IBD. Thirty-seven pediatric IBD patients 23 with Crohn’s disease CD and 14 with ulcerative colitis UC with mean age 13.25 ± 2.9 years were included. Fourteen age-matched healthy pediatric volunteers five males and nine females served as a control group HC. The percentage of CD11c+ myeloid dendritic cells mDCs and CD123+ plasmacytoid DCs pDCs expressing CD200R1 and CD200 were evaluated in peripheral blood using flow cytometry and were correlated with routine biochemical, serological markers, serum levels of cytokines and with the percentages of circulating regulatory T cells Treg and CD4+ producing IL-17 Th17. IBD patients showed a significant decrease in the percentage of pDCs and mDCs expressing CD200R1 compared to that of HC. Patients with UC showed increased expressions of the CD200 molecule on pDCs as compared to HC. DCs expressing CD200R1 were found to be correlated positively with Treg and negatively with TH17 and erythrocyte sedimentation rate ESR. Our findings suggest that IBD is associated with dysregulation in the CD200R1-CD200 axis and that the decrease in DCs expressing CD200R1 may contribute to the imbalance of Th17 and Treg cells and in the pathogenesis of IBD.
