Immunological Aspects of Histoincompatible Myoblast Transfer into Non-Tolerant Hosts

  • George Karpati
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 280)


One of the most pressing issues requiring clarification before considering myoblast transfer in humans is the immunological aspects of the transfer of partially or fully histoincompatible myoblasts into muscles of non-tolerant hosts.
