Clinical Tissue Transplantation Organ and tissue transplantation has advanced from an experimental procedure used only in life-threatening, emergency procedures to the treatment of choice for a wide range of clinical conditions. It includes transplants for life-enhancement as well as the traditional lifesaving. The table at the right lists the most commonly transplanted tissues (except blood). The various tissues present the surgeon with different challenges. For example, failure of liver transplants is more often due to vascular complications and blood seepage than from rejection. Graft vs. host disease Most bone marrow transplants are done on patients who are immune deficient, either naturally (eg, a genetic defect) or artificially (eg, cytotoxic drug and radiation treatment of cancer). This means the patient does not have a functioning immune system to reject the transplant. However, the transplant does contain immunologically competent cells to reject the recipient! This situation is called graft vs. host disease (GvH) and is probably the greatest problem in the use of bone marrow transplants, affecting 50-70% of marrow recipients. Stimulated Th1 cells produce cytokines that generate inflammatory reactions in the skin, liver, and GI tract. It can lead to liver failure and GI hemorrhage. Promising efforts are being made to "purge" the donor bone marrow of T cells, so they are not available to attack the host. However, some evidence shows that a low level GvH may be beneficial in some situations. In artificially immunosuppressed individuals, a few donor lymphocytes may overwhelm any remaining host T cells and prevent graft rejection.

General Discussion
Graft versus Host Disease (GVHD) is a rare disorder that can strike persons whose immune system is suppressed and have either received a blood transfusion or a bone marrow transplant. Symptoms may include skin rash, intestinal problems similar to colitis, and liver dysfunction.
The most frequent signs of Graft versus Host Disease (GVHD) occur after a blood transfusion or bone marrow transplant. They are dermatitis (a skin rash), gastrointestinal problems (diarrhea, nausea and abdominal pain) and poor liver function. There may also be involvement of kidneys, lungs, eyes, mouth, musculoskeletal system and heart. GVHD affects about 60% of all bone marrow transplant and transfusion patients whose immune system was suppressed before treatment. Immunosuppression can occur as a result of certain drugs, radiation or certain diseases. Cancer patients and organ transplant recipients often use drugs that suppress their immune systems.

Council Members The New York State Council on Human Blood and Transfusion Services is pleased to provide you with an updated revision of the Guidelines for Irradiation of Blood and Blood Components. These guidelines were developed by the Transfusion Practices Committee and approved by the Council on June 9, 1993. They reflect currently accepted practice as determined by the Council and its committees. The Council is most grateful to those individuals who devoted time and effort to development of these guidelines. Additional copies may be obtained from the State Blood Resources Program at (518) 473-0215. The council would appreciate any comments you may have regarding these guidelines as well as suggestions for topics for future consideration.

The outcome is in the genes
Clinical Research Division study reveals a genetic difference that predicts the likelihood of severe transplant complication
Drs. John Hansen and Ming-Tseh Lin have developed a genetic test for predicting transplant outcome that may help doctors choose the best treatment plan for patients. By BARBARA BERG A simple genetic test could help doctors predict the likelihood that a patient will develop a potentially life-threatening complication after a bone-marrow or stem-cell transplant. New research conducted by Drs. Ming-Tseh Lin, John Hansen and colleagues in the Clinical Research Division and Taiwan reveals that transplant recipients with a common variant of an immune-system regulator gene are half as likely as other patients to develop clinically severe graft-vs.-host disease. The complication occurs when transplanted cells mount a destructive immune reaction against a patient's body. The findings, published in the Dec. 4 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, suggest that inclusion of the genetic test in a patient's standard pre-transplant evaluation could ultimately help doctors determine the optimum timing and course of treatment.

The dosage of immunocompetent cells transfused is also believed to be important in the development of GVHD. Based on animal studies, a minimum dose of 1x10 cells per kg body weight is necessary to induce a "runting syndrome" and case studies suggest that a similar threshold is necessary to produce GVHD in man. There have been reports of fatal TA-GVHD, however, occurring in children with severe combined immunodeficiency in which a dose of only 8x104 lymphocytes per kg body weight appeared to be transfused. The threshold number of viable cells necessary to produce a graft-versus-host reaction, therefore, may vary depending upon the immune status of the host as well as the antigenic similarity, or disparity between the donor and the recipient.

Transplant antigens for graft-vs-host disease
HA-1 and HA-2 antigenic peptides The present invention discloses peptide sequences of a so called minor H antigen. The minor H antigens are associated with the Graft-versus-Host Disease. The peptides and their derivatives find many uses in bone marrow transplantation, organ transplantation and in the treatment of leukemia. The peptide and its derivatives can be incorporated in vaccines, in pharmaceutical formulations and they can be used in diagnostic test kits. One of the peptides is derived from the HA-2 minor antigen and has the sequence YXGEVXVSV, wherein X represents a leucine or an isoleucine residue. The other peptide is derived from the HA-1 minor antigen. Both donors and recipients in bone marrow transplantation can be treated with the peptides, optionally in combination with other peptides, coupled to carriers, with suitable excipients and/or adjuvants. US Patent No. 5,770,201 describes the HA-2 antigen; both antigens are co-owned with the University of Leiden. U. Leiden can license these rights on behalf of both parties. The Patent Foundation can provide contact information.
