T-regulatory cell treatment prevents chronic rejection of heart allografts in a murine mixed chimerism model.
The mixed chimerism approach induces donor-specific tolerance in both pre-clinical models and clinical pilot trials. However, chronic rejection of heart allografts and acute rejection of skin allografts were observed in some chimeric animals despite

Induced regulatory T cells in allograft tolerance via transient mixed chimerism.
Successful induction of allograft tolerance has been achieved in nonhuman primates (NHPs) and humans via induction of transient hematopoietic chimerism. Since allograft tolerance was achieved in these recipients without durable chimerism, peripheral

Alloreactive Regulatory T Cells Allow the Generation of Mixed Chimerism and Transplant Tolerance.
The induction of donor-specific transplant tolerance is one of the main goals of modern immunology. Establishment of a mixed chimerism state in the transplant recipient has proven to be a suitable strategy for the induction of long-term allograft tol

The applications of bone marrow-derived stem cells to induce tolerance and chimerism in organ transplantation.
Progress in understanding the cellular and molecular biology of the immune system, in the second half of the 20(th) century brings the transplantation of replacement organs and tissues in clinical reality to cure disease. Immunosuppressive agents tha

Kidney Versus Islet Allograft Survival After Induction of Mixed Chimerism With Combined Donor Bone Marrow Transplantation.
We have previously reported successful induction of transient mixed chimerism and long-term acceptance of renal allografts in MHC mismatched nonhuman primates. In this study, we attempted to extend this tolerance induction approach to islet allograft

Depletion of foxp3(+) T cells abrogates tolerance of skin and heart allografts in murine mixed chimeras without the loss of mixed chimerism.
The relative contribution of central and peripheral mechanisms to the generation and maintenance of allograft tolerance is of considerable interest. Here, we present new evidence that regulatory T cells (Foxp3(+) ) maintain skin and heart allograft t

A Role for Regulatory T Cells in a Murine Model of Epicutaneous Toluene Diisocyanate Sensitization.
Toluene diisocyanate (TDI) is a leading cause of chemical-induced occupational asthma which impacts workers in a variety of industries worldwide. Recently, the robust regulatory potential of regulatory T cells (Tregs) has become apparent, including t

Induction of tolerance through mixed chimerism.
"Mixed chimerism" refers to a state in which the lymphohematopoietic system of the recipient of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cells comprises a mixture of host and donor cells. This state is usually attained through either bone marrow or mobilized pe

Regulatory T Cells: Serious Contenders in the Promise for Immunological Tolerance in Transplantation.
Regulatory T cells (Tregs) play an important role in immunoregulation and have been shown in animal models to promote transplantation tolerance and curb autoimmunity following their adoptive transfer. The safety and potential therapeutic efficacy of

Host bone marrow-derived IL-12 enhances donor T cell engraftment in a mouse model of bone marrow transplantation.
Donor cell engraftment is critical for the success of allogeneic bone marrow transplants. Graft failure is a result of donor cells either failing to engraft initially or being eliminated at later time points. Donor cell engraftment is facilitated by
