Abstract

Rejection of a canine renal allograft is accompanied by infiltration of the graft with lymphocytes and plasmacytes. External beam irradiation of the graft at intervals after transplantation has been employed to lower the population of these invading cells, and, in several laboratories, has been found to prolong host and graft survival. Described herein is a series of experiments in which chronic, low-dose irradiation of canine renal allograft was attempted by causing Mercury-203 to be deposited in graft renal tubular epithelium. Graft and host survivals were prolonged beyond control values for this laboratory in a few animals, but the general technique is not as yet adaptable to the human renal-transplantation problem.
