Recently it has been shown that protease therapy ameliorates certain immune-mediated diseases. Thus we studied the effect of administration of a protease mixture on aortic transplant arteriosclerosis in rats. Segments of abdominal aorta from SHR strain were transplanted orthotopically into WKY recipients. Two groups of allografted rats were used. One group… CONTINUE READING
