Abstract

Certain forms of inflammation of an allograft are highly detrimental to the induction and maintenance of transplant tolerance as they foster stable commitment to graft-destructive, not graft-protective, forms of T-cell immunity. Hence, a reduction in adverse tissue inflammation may prove crucial in facilitating the induction and maintenance of a long-lasting state of transplant tolerance.
