Transplantation Immunology

Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. Transplantation immunology is the sequence of immunological reactions that occur after the transplant. A major limitation to the success of transplantation is the immune response of the recipient to the donor tissue. A major barrier to transplantation is the process of rejection, in which the recipient's immune system recognizes the graft as being foreign and attacks it. During fetal life, within the thymus, a very important process called thymic education occurs. Immune cells that react with “self” antigens are killed by a process called apoptosis. The removal of these self-reactive cells, a process called negative selection, results in tolerance to our own proteins, ie, self-tolerance, and prevents autoimmune reactions.
