Alloimmunization-activated suppressor cells. I: Abrogation of lethal graft-versus-host reaction directed against non-H-2 antigens.


Incompatibility for DBA/2 (D2) minor histocompatibility antigens (MiHA) alone leads to a severe lethal graft-versus-host reaction (GVHR) in adult (D2 X B10.D2)F1 recipients of B10.D2 bone marrow and spleen cells. In this genetic combination, mortality is completely abrogated by preimmunization of the graft donor against unrelated H-2b antigens and specific… (More)
