Abstract

Background. The immunosuppression required to prevent rejection of intestinal transplants causes a high rate of infection and lymphoma. It is crucial that immunomodulatory strategies be developed to facilitate intestinal engraftment. Methods. We prospectively examined the effect of unpurified donor-specific bone marrow transfusions (DSBMTs) on rejection, infection, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), and survival after intestinal transplantations in 44 Yorkshire Landrace pigs. Four groups that difference according to presence or absence of treatment with FK506 and DSBMT were analyzed. Results. In nonimmunosuppressed pigs, DSBMTs had no effect on survival (8 days versus 9 days in controls; p = 0.9). In FK506 pigs, DSBMTs tended to reduced survival (21 days versus 37 days in FK506 controls; p = 0.1); no difference was seen between two bone marrow dosages, 5 x 107 or 5 x 108 bone marrow cells/kg. No difference in the incidence of death caused by rejection was seen between DSBMTs and controls, but there was a marked tendency toward more deaths caused by rejection in DSBMTs + FK506 versus FK506-only pigs (p = 0.09). Daily stomal assessment showed a higher rate of moderate and severe interstitial rejection in DSBMT + FK506 versus FK506- only pigs; DSBMT was also associated with increased vascular rejection. Finally, groupwise comparison showed an order of susceptibility to lethal GVHD and infection as follows: DSBMT + FK506 > FK506 > DSBMT > controls. Conclusions. Rather than promoting engraftment, DSBMT can sensitive recipients and cause rejection after intestinal transplantation. It aggravates the risks of generalized GVHD and infection and tends to reduce graft and recipient survival. Before being applied clinically, DSBMT needs to be refined to increase its tolerogenic potential without causing GVHD.
