  • Recent evidence suggests that passenger leukocytes migrate after organ transplantation and produce persistent chimerism, which is essential for sustained survival of the allografts. Here, Thomas Starzl and colleagues argure that this hematolymphopoietic chimerism provides an important framework for the interpretation of basic and therapeutically oriented transplantataion research.
