Immunological nature of genetic resistance of mice to herpes simplex virus type 1 infection

Treatment of mice genetically resistant to HSV-1 with agents which impair T-cell or macrophage function markedly diminished resistance. Bone marrow transplantation of genetically susceptible mice with marrow from resistant F1 mice produced chimeras resistant to HSV-1. Resistance thus appears to be immunological in nature. Striking similarities were found between resistance to HSV-1 and allogeneic resistance.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
