... Abstract Corneal transplantation safety is widely dependent on clinical donor selection. Donor-to-host transmission of rabies and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is well established, and it is lethal for the recipient. Taking into consideration this latter figure, contraindications to ocular tissue...

.... Inducing donor-specific immune tolerance in VCA can conceivably be the solution to this dilemma. Creating chimerism by means of donor cell transfer and repopulation is proposed to be a powerful and efficient tool to promote donor-specific immune tolerance. In this chapter, we describe the theory...

... Abstract Patients undergoing renal transplantation frequently have non-donor-specific HLA antibodies (NDSA). There could be NDSA (e.g. a negative crossmatch in a sensitized patient), or could be donor-specific HLA antibodies (DSA) (e.g., antibody-incompatible transplantation). NDSA levels...

..., the usual persistence of donor-specific antibodies (DSA) post-transplanta-tion rather than to produce an accommodation state is associated to development of trans-plant glomerulopathy and then to a progressive renal allograft function deterioration. Thus, novel strategies are needed to prolong graft...
