The therapeutic value of the transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-b) in transplantation has been reported; However, cell-mediated gene therapy using TGF-b is not applied to the organ transplantation widely. This study was to evaluate whether TGF-b-modified donor spleen cell specific transfusion in rat heterotopic allo-limb transplantation could induce tolerance tolerogenicity and prolong allograft’s survival time. The Splenic T-cell in Wistar rats responsing to donor spleen cells which received TGF-b-transduced were severely impaired.The Survival time of Sprague-Dawley Allograft-limb in Wistar rats given TGF-b-modified donor spleen cells (5¥106 cells/well, administration of donor TGF-b-transduced donor spleen cells 7 days before transplantation) was extended modestly but significantly.
