Ingraft chimerism in lung transplantation - a study in a porcine model of obliterative bronchiolitis


BACKGROUND Bronchial epithelium is a target of the alloimmune response in lung transplantation, and intact epithelium may protect allografts from rejection and obliterative bronchiolitis (OB). Herein we study the influence of chimerism on bronchial epithelium and OB development in pigs. METHODS A total of 54 immunosuppressed and unimmunosuppressed… (More)
