Abstract: Infectious risk remains an important consideration in the clinical application of xenotransplantation. Vascularized xenografts create unique immunological niches in which bidirectional transmission of pathogens between donor and recipient may occur. Enhanced replication of many...
Abstract: Background: Delayed rejection of xenografts is a major hurdle that needs to be addressed to achieve long‐term engraftment in the pig‐to‐primate transplant setting. Both vascular and avascular xenografts are susceptible to a delayed rejection process that comprises humoral and cellular...
Abstract: Background: Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection is highly prevalent among domestic pigs in Japan. It has been reported that pig handlers such as farmers and veterinarians are at increased risk of contracting HEV infection. Pigs are regarded as the most acceptable candidate animals for...
Abstract: Background: In vivo xenotransplantation modeling in large animal species is often performed in nonhuman primates, including baboons. For proper data interpretation, reference values for clinical chemistry and hematology are required. Methods: These values are available from baseline...
Abstract: Background: Our introductory pig‐to‐cynomolgus monkey heart or kidney transplantation using organs from pigs transgenic for human decay‐accelerating factor (hDAF), showed a high incidence of hyperacute rejection (HAR), which was ascribed to extraordinary high levels of anti‐pig...
