Different strains of donor parental lymphoid cells induce different models of chronic graft-versus-host disease in murine (Balb/c x A/J)F1 hybrid hosts.

The induction of a chronic graft-versus-host (cGVH) disease in (Balb/c x A/J)F1 mice by the intravenous injection of either Balb/c or A/J parental lymphoid cells led to the development of two different models of disease. In this paper we compared the clinical aspects and the antigen specificities which recognized the autoantibodies developed by the animals… CONTINUE READING
