Both L- and D-isomers of allotrap 2702 prolong cardiac allograft survival in mice.

BACKGROUND Peptides derived from a conserved region of the human leukocyte antigen class I heavy chain (a.a. 75-84) have been shown to have immunomodulatory activity. The peptide 07.75-84, derived from HLA-B7, prolonged Lewis 1.W cardiac allograft survival in Lewis 1.A recipients. In combination with cyclosporine A, permanent heart allograft acceptance was… CONTINUE READING
