Inbred animals (Lewis rats) were used to investigate the regeneration of autologously implanted splenic tissue at intra-omental and subcutaneous sites. Quantitative immunohistology with monoclonal antibodies against lymphocytes and macrophages was performed to analyse the cell density of red pulp (RP), periarteriolar lymphoid sheath (PALS), marginal zone(More)
The present study deals with the morphological and functional development of intraomentally and subcutaneously implanted splenic tissue. Spleens and splenic transplants from 138 Lewis rats were investigated with immunohistological, immunological and molecular biological methods at different times after operation (up to 200 days postoperatively). The(More)
The implantation of splenic tissue at different implantation sites (intraomental and subcutaneous) into one animal (Lewis rats) results in the development of splenic nodules at both sites. In a quantitative immunohistological analysis of splenic compartments such as red pulp (RP), periarteriolar lymphoid sheaths (PALS), marginal zone (MZ) and follicles (F)(More)
The ability of splenic tissue to regenerate after avascular transplantation at different target tissues is well documented but the capacity of splenic transplants to compensate the loss of spleen and the influence of the implantation site on the functional development of replants are still discussed contradictory, because little is known about specific(More)
