The effects of donor-specific blood transfusion enhancement of rat renal allografts on host NK cell responses.


Donor-specific blood transfusion (DSBT) given 1-2 weeks prior to transplantation prolongs the survival of fully allogeneic ACI (RT1a) renal allografts in PVG (RT1c) recipients from 6-8 days to greater than 100 days. We have previously demonstrated that ACI kidneys transplanted to autologous blood transfusion (ABT)- or DSBT-pretreated PVG recipients… (More)
