Abstract

This coculture assay appears to correlate with the presence of tolerance under conditions applicable to the clinical setting. The assay appears to identify peripheral regulatory mechanisms of tolerance in allogeneic transplant recipients, and therefore may provide an approach for determining an appropriate timepoint at which to test withdrawal of immunosuppressive medications.
