Lymphocyte Immunophenotyping in Common Variable Immunodeficiency
Recruitment status was: Recruiting
The purpose of this study is to discover if differences in the surface markers of B-cells (antibody producing cells of the immune system) in Common Variable Immune Deficiency (CVID) are related to CVID or its complications/treatment (e.g. bronchiectasis, granulomatous disease, immunoglobulin treatment).
The study hypothesis is that the altered B-cell surface markers are related to CVID, and not to the complications or treatment of CVID.
Common Variable Immunodeficiency
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
|Official Title:||Investigation of the Lymphocyte Surface Expression of Patients With Primary Immunodeficiency (Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID)), Compared to Controls|
- Percentage of B-cells of all lymphocytes [ Time Frame: 5 months ]Look at percentage of cells within the lymphocyte gate that express the B-cell marker CD19, and compare to healthy controls and non-healthy controls.
- Percentage of class switched memory B-cells as a percentage of B-cells [ Time Frame: 5 months ]Percentage of class-switched memory B-cells (expressing CD27 and CD19), that do not express IgM or IgD, as a percentage of B-cells. This is reduced in CVID and this will be compared between controls and the patients with CVID.
- Percentage expression of CD21 and CD38 [ Time Frame: 5 months ]Look for abnormalities in the CVID group and compare to control groups in the numeber of B-cells expressing low levels of CD21 (CD21 lo), and high CD38.

Patients with common variable immunodeficiency
CVID and granulomatous disease
Patients with CVID complicated with granulomatous inflammation
CVID and bronchiectasis
Patients with CVID complicated by bronchiectasis
Control on Immunoglobulin
Patients on immunoglobulin long-term who do not have an immunodeficiency
Controls with bronchiectasis not caused by a known immunodeficiency
Control with granulomatous disease
Control patients with Crohn's Disease as this is a disease that causes granulomatous inflammation.
