The shortage of cadaveric human organs for transplantation could be alleviated by the use of xenografts. Long-term (> one-year) survival of xenografts in humans or experimental animals has not been achieved with previous immunosuppressive protocols. Poor results in xenotransplantation compared with allotransplantation have been attributed to a more potent(More)
Combined total lymphoid irradiation (TLI) and cyclosporine (CyA) dramatically prolong cardiac xenografts in small animals. In order to evaluate this immunosuppressive regimen in primates, heterotopic cardiac cervical xenografts were implanted in a monkey-to-baboon model. The following groups evolved: group 1 (n = 2) control, no immunosuppression; group 2 (n(More)
