Effect of αGal on corneal xenotransplantation in a mouse model.


BACKGROUND It has been reported that hyperacute rejection (HAR) does not occur after pig-to-nonhuman corneal xenotransplantation. However, considering that immune privilege is already disrupted in most human corneal recipients, and the expression of αGal can be gradually reduced after pig-to-rat corneal transplantation, the long-term survival of corneal… (More)
