Creation of pig-sheep xenogeneic chimerism by the in-utero transplantation of hematopoietic stem cells.

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.
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.
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.
