Summary

A soluble placenta fraction from mice (A.CA) mated with H-2 histoincompatible males (A/Sn) significantly prolonged the survival of heterotopic A/Sn heart transplants in A.CA recipients. No prolongation of A/Sn heart graft survival was obtained with the corresponding A.CA placenta fraction after A.CA × A.CA mating.
