BACKGROUND Apoptosis of parenchymal cells has been described during allograft rejection. Immunologically privileged tissue in the mouse has been found to prevent rejection by initiating apoptosis of infiltrating lymphocytes. The aim of this study was to investigate whether apoptosis may play a role in T-cell regulation during rejection and subsequent tolerance induction after liver transplantation (LTx) and combined liver/small bowel transplantation (LSBTx). METHODS LTx and LSBTx (Brown… CONTINUE READING
