The promotion of alloengraftment in the absence of global immune suppression and multiorgan toxicity is a major goal of transplantation. It is demonstrated that the infusion of a single modest bone marrow dosage in 200 cGy-irradiated recipients treated with anti-CD154 (anti-CD40L) monoclonal antibody (mAb) resulted in chimerism levels of 48%. Reducing irradiation to 100 or 50 cGy permitted 24% and 10% chimerism, respectively. In contrast, pan-T-cell depletion resulted in only transient engraf...Expand abstract
