    Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis was: I) to compare islet allo- and xenograft rejectionin rats, using immunosupreesion with CsA in a mixed allogeneic-xenogeneic islet transplantaionmodel, 2) to evaluate the efficacy of various immunosuppressive drugs, with specialreference to Leflunomide, in preventing islet xenograft rejection in the pig-to-ratmodel, 3) to perform an immunohistochemical study of porcine islet xenograft rejecionin primates including primates treated with CsA+DSG, and 4) to study the metabolismand excretion of porcine C-peptide in mice, with special reference to the use ofdonor-specific C-peptide for monitoring islet xenograft function. In summary, theresults were as follows: I ). LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The phylum Priapulida is a small group of marine worms that is allied with the nematodes, kinorhynchs, loriciferans and nematomorphs in a clade called the Cycloneuralia or Introverta.
