Abstract

Chinese intermingled skin grafts of allogenic material interspersed with small autogenic islets heal permanently with no signs of a rejection reaction. A study of the T-helper and T-suppressor cells in the region of the autogenic islets and the remaining allodermis revealed a distinctly greater frequency of these cells in the islets, with marked massing of the cells between the autoepithelium and the autodermis. Histologically it could be shown, that the Langerhans' cells grow over the allodermis together with the epithelium, although compared with the autogenic islets their number in the newly formed epidermis remained reduced.
