Abstract

Survival of allografts of islets of Langerhans in nonimmunosuppressed adult rats was prolonged by transfusions of donor blood irradiated with ultraviolet light before transplantation across a major histocompatibility barrier. This treatment is donor blood-specific and has produced greater than 160-day survival of transplanted islets without the administration of immunosuppressive agents.
