Effects of BWH-4 anti-CD4 monoclonal antibody on rat vascularized cardiac allografts before and after engraftment.

Abstract

We studied the effects and mechanism of action of BWH-4, an IgG2a mouse antirat CD4 monoclonal antibody that recognizes a distinct epitope on the CD4 molecule, in LEW recipients of (LEW x BN)F1 vascularized heterotopic cardiac allografts.
