Durable tolerance can be reliably achieved by inducing engraftment of allogeneic or xenogeneic hematopoietic cells in recipients initially depleted of T lymphocytes. Engraftment of pluripotent hematopoietic stem cells (PPHSC) provides a constant supply of donor antigen to ensure the ongoing central deletion of donor-reactive T cell clones, resulting in a permanent state of donor-specific tolerance. Because of the toxicity of myeloablative therapy used to achieve allogeneic PPHSC engraftment… CONTINUE READING
