Transplantation: Is donor T-cell engraftment a biomarker for tolerance?
The link between chimerism and tolerance is well established. In a rhesus macaque study, Ramakrishnan et al. show that the type of chimerism might have an important effect on tolerance to kidney allografts, pointing to a critical role of donor T-cell production for success. These findings could directly impact clinical efforts to induce tolerance to allografts.
