Mucosal cell-mediated immunological changes associated with experimental graft-versus-host disease.

Abstract

This study examined the histological changes and local cellular immune response induced within the lingual mucosa in an allogeneic F1 hybrid rat model of graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) with a view to studying oral lymphocyte-epithelial cell reactions. Highest levels of disease, as reflected by both a GvHD index and the extent of the oral mucosal changes… (More)
