Abstract

This article discusses the immunologic principles and the most promising immunologic approaches for composite tissue allograft tolerance. We have previously reviewed some of the pharmacologic approaches for composite tissue allo-transplantation. In this review, we will summarize the range of options that may address the challenge of transplantation in reconstructive surgery.
