A prospective study has been carried out in rhesus monkeys to investigate the influence of blood-transfusions on kidney allograft survival. Unrelated animals matched for 2 or 3 antigens of the A and B locus of the major histocompatibility complex were given five consecutive blood-transfusions before transplantation and received conventional(More)
Interest in the Ir genes of rheus monkeys stems from their phylogenetic relationship to man and the extensive data already available on the major histocompatibility complex of the monkey. At least two independent dominant H-linked Ir genes have been identified in the rhesus. These genes control the ability of monkeys to respond to the random linear(More)
Among the numerous autoimmune diseases associated with various HLA alleles, the one with the highest relative risk so far reported has been ankylosing spondylitis with HLA-B27. To examine this relationship more directly, we have cloned the gene encoding the HLA-B27 antigen and determined its complete DNA sequence. Comparison of the HLA-B27 sequence with(More)
