Abstract

Indefinite graft survival was obtained with murine cardiac allografts using the combined administration of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) directed against the receptor ligand pair CD2-CD48. Although each antibody could prolong graft survival when given alone, neither resulted in the indefinite graft survival seen with the combination. Combined mAb administration is associated with inhibition of T cell priming and help and subsequent cytotoxic T lymphocyte generation. This indicates that the interaction between CD2 and its ligand is important for antigen priming and recognition, and combined mAbs may prove to be a useful therapeutic regimen for transplantation.
