Abstract

In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Xu et al. (2019) demonstrate that editing iPSCs' major histocompatibility antigens may potentially provide a small set of universally compatible stem cell lines for therapies. However, these modifications may result in patient minor histocompatibility responses and deficiencies in their T cell response repertoire to infection and cancer.
