Neonatal induction of tolerance to skeletal tissue allografts without immunosuppression.

Abstract

Vascularized allogeneic skeletal tissue transplantation without the need for host immunosuppression would increase reconstructive options for treating congenital and acquired defects. Because the immune system of a fetus or neonate is immature, it may be possible to induce tolerance to allogeneic skeletal tissues by alloantigen injection during this… (More)
