Animal cells are densely covered with glycoconjugates, such as N‐glycan, O‐glycan, and glycosphingolipids, which are important for various biological and immunological events at the cell surface and in the extracellular matrix. Endothelial α‐Gal carbohydrate epitopes (Galα3Gal‐R) expressed on...
Background To establish the consensus about the conditions for undertaking clinical trials in xenocorneal transplantation in Korea, specific issues regarding the xenocorneal transplantation on ethical and regulatory aspects are addressed, and the guidelines to conduct clinical trial of the...
Islet cell transplantation is a promising option for the restoration of normal glucose homeostasis in patients with type 1 diabetes. Because graft volume is a crucial issue in islet transplantations for patients with diabetes, we evaluated a new method for increasing functional tissue yield in...
Background We previously generated humanized chimeric mice by transplanting h‐hepatocytes into the livers of the diseased‐liver transgenic mouse model with immunodeficient background. These mice with livers mostly replaced by human (h) hepatocytes have been proved to be useful for research on...
Background Patients in fulminant hepatic failure currently do not have a temporary means of support while awaiting liver transplantation. A potential therapeutic approach for such patients is the use of extracorporeal perfusion with porcine livers as a form of “liver dialysis”. During a 72‐h...
Background Glutaraldehyde fixation does not guarantee complete tissue biocompatibility in current clinical bioprosthetic heart valves (BHVs). Particularly, circulating anti‐αGal human antibodies increase significantly from just 10 days after a BHV implantation. The inactivation of such epitope...
