Abstract

Permanent tolerance to vascularized skeletal tissue allografts can be induced in miniature swine with minor antigen differences using a 12-day course of CsA. Demonstration of skeletal tissue allograft survival in a large animal model without long-term immunosuppression represents an important step toward transplantation of skeletal tissue allografts in humans.
