PURPOSE To determine the effect of triple drug immune suppression on RPE xenograft survival in the fetal pig after transplantation into the albino rabbit subretinal space. METHODS Primary RPE microaggregates (approximately 40,000 RPE cells) were injected into the subretinal space of 24 albino rabbits, with half the rabbits maintained on triple systemic immune suppression. RPE survival was estimated with a DNA probe (porcine DNA repeat element; PRE) against a porcine-specific repetitive… CONTINUE READING
