Vascularized whole organ discordant xenografts placed in the periphery are rejected by a rapid "hyperacute" process that involves preformed antibody binding to the xeno-antigens on the donor endothelial cells with complement activation. In the CNS, xenografts are classically thought to be rejected more slowly by a T-cell-dependent process. We now report that xenografts of embryonic porcine ventral mesencephalic tissue in the 6-hydroxydopamine-lesioned, nonimmunosuppressed rat induce both a… CONTINUE READING
