Suppressor cells in the embryonic thymus mediate allograft tolerance

Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology
W Droege, M Tuneskog

Abstract

Thymus cells from non-immunized young chickens suppress the allograft rejection in lightly irradiated syngeneic or allogeneic recipients and mediate longlasting skingraft survival in a significant proportion of recipients across a strong histocompatibility difference. Suppressive activity of this kind is already found in the embryonic thymus and is therefore believed to mediate also self tolerance and neonatal allograft tolerance.

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.
