The article discusses the case of a 22-year-old man with a large defect on the articular surface of the lateral femoral condyle of the knee who underwent osteochondral allograft from a female donor. Standard light microscopy revealed normal cartilage thickness and areas of chondrocyte clumping due to chondryte regeneration. The long-term survival of donor cells from a neovascularized osteochondral allograft is confirmed.

    Recurrent disease remains a major obstacle to cure after allogeneic transplantation. Various methods have been developed to detect minimal residual disease (MRD) after transplantation to identify patients at risk for relapse. Chimerism tests differentiate recipient and donor cells and are used...

    A new approach to organ transplantation that may be particularly applicable to kidney transplantation is suggested by analogy with the immunological mechanism responsible for the survival of the fetal allograft. The method concerns identifying donor-recipient tissue compatibility by use of the...
