Abstract:

Transplantation is the treatment of choice for end stage organ failure however current immunosuppressive therapies whilst effective at preventing acute allograft rejection, fail to prevent late graft loss due to chronic rejection and are associated with an increased risk of infection and malignancy. Therefore there is a clear unmet clinical need for improved strategies to prevent allograft rejection.
