  1. Human/Pig Model of Hepatitis C Virus for New Vaccines
    William Beschorner; Fiscal Year: 2005
    ..A large animal immune compentent model of HCV will lead to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of hepatitis C virus and to more effective vaccines and immune therapy. ..
  2. Heart Xenotransplantation with Chimeric Donor Pigs
    William Beschorner; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..Follow up studies would establish the relative contribution of tissue accommodation and specific immune tolerance to the prolongation of heart xenograft survival. ..
  3. Islet Transplantation with Chimeric Donor Pigs
    William Beschorner; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..These will permit earlier detection of rejection or graft failure, and establish the safety of xenotransplantation with regards to risk of zoonotic or opportunistic infections. ..
