Creation of pig-sheep xenogeneic chimerism by the in-utero transplantation of hematopoietic stem cells.
Rice HE, Hendrick MH, Flake AW: In-utero transplantation of rat hematopoietic stem cells induces xenogeneic chimerism in mice.
Leukemia xenogeneic 2: Donor - human ALL / AML BM; Recipient:
Leukemia xenogeneic 1: human CD34+ transplant (before or after) in leukemic Nalm-6-GFP ALL 7.
Critically, NOD-scid mice enable xenogeneic transplantation without rejection/immunosuppressant drug administration, and allow achievement of 100% engraftment not seen in other models.
An alternative approach for xenogeneic/allogeneic transplants is modulation of the immune response via administration of immunosuppressant drugs.
These models are limited by their xenogeneic nature, whereas the DR4 mice described here provide cases of spontaneous disease with morphological and phenotypic similarities to human T cell/histiocyte rich DLBCL and HL with characteristic H/RS-like cells.
