BACKGROUND Donor-specific immunosuppression is important in transplantation surgery. We examined the immunosuppressive effects of donor splenocytes administered postoperatively into the jejunum and the effect of such treatment on the survival of heterotopic vascularized cardiac allograft in rats. METHODS Lewis (LEW, RT-1l) recipient rats were treated with(More)
BACKGROUND The discovery of new immunosuppressive agents has enhanced short-term graft survival. However, current immunosuppressants often induce toxicities that limit their clinical use. Thus, there is a need for new immunosuppressants for use in clinical transplantation. Piceatannol blocks Syk and ZAP-70, tyrosine kinases involved in immune cell(More)
BACKGROUND Several conventional forms of immunosuppression have been shown to antagonize the efficacy of anti-CD154 monoclonal antibody- (mAb) based costimulatory molecule blockade immunotherapy. Our objective was to determine if allograft recipients treated with a conventional immunosuppressive regimen could be sequentially converted to anti-CD154 mAb(More)

Moreover, this uncommon gastric collision tumor in our case had prolapsed into the duodenum. A 77-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital complaining of vomiting and severe(More)
