Background: Blockade of the inducible costimulator (ICOS) pathway has been shown to prolong allograft survival; however, its utility in xenotransplantation is unknown. We hypothesize that local expression of ICOS-Ig by the xenograft will suppress the T-cell response resulting in significant prolonged graft survival. METHODS.: Pig iliac artery endothelial cells (PIEC) secreting ICOS-Ig were generated and examined for the following: (1) inhibition of allogeneic and xenogeneic proliferation of...[Show more]
