Microsurgical Techniques for Small Bowel Transplantation in Mice
With advances in immunosuppression, small bowel transplantation (SBT) has become a therapeutic procedure for patients with intestinal failure [1, 2]. SBT is limited, however, by vigorous rejection, graft-versus-host disease, and lymphoproliferative disorders . Further progress in this field depends on extensive studies in animal models to achieve a better understanding of the immunology of the intestinal allograft, thus improving clinical results of SBT.
