Probably because amnion is derived from the fetus and is exposed to the maternal immune system, human amniotic epithelial (HAE) cells do not express the HLA-A, -B, -C, or -DR antigens on their surfaces, suggesting that HAE cells do not induce rejection (immune reaction) after allotransplantation. And the amnion, like the placenta, is useless to the mother and child after birth. Therefore, HAE cells or tissues were expected to be suitable for allotransplantation. Because HAE cells produce large… CONTINUE READING
