Differences in the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) between recipients and donors present a problem because of immunologic responses in graft rejection. The purpose of this study is to clarify the efficacy of MHC matching against acute graft rejection of allogeneic limb transplants in rats. Right hindlimb transplantations were performed using various… CONTINUE READING
