Abstract

Increased prostaglandin production is a possible mechanism for the immunosuppressive effects of both cyclosporine and blood transfusions. Therefore, dietary supplementation with linoleic acid, a prostaglandin precursor, combined with either modality could act synergistically. Intraabdominal cardiac allografts were performed from Buffalo rat donors to Lewis recipients. Transplant recipients received a single donor-specific transfusion, low-dose cyclosporine (CsA, 1 mg/kd/d x 7 days), dietary supplementation with linoleic acid (LA, 16% of total calories) or a combination of the three modalities. CsA, DST or LA alone significantly prolonged allograft survival. Both CsA and LA acted synergistically with DST in further prolongation of survival - however, animals receiving all three modalities achieved 100% long-term survival. Augmentation of transfusion- and cyclosporine-induced immunosuppression with dietary prostaglandin precursor is possible.
