Non-human primate regulatory T cells: Current biology and implications for transplantation

Academic Article


  • Regulatory T cells (Treg) offer potential for improving long-term outcomes in cell and organ transplantation. The non-human primate model is a valuable resource for addressing issues concerning the transfer of Treg therapy to the clinic. Herein, we discuss the properties of non-human primate Treg and prospects for their evaluation in allotransplantation and xenotransplantation. © 2010 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
