Transplant immunology is the study of the immune response that occurs when an organ or tissue is moved (grafted) from one individual to another. A major problem following transplantation is that the immune system of the recipient sees the grafted tissue as ‘foreign’ and attacks and destroys it. Immune system identifies the graft through the antigens present on their cells and reacts in a similar way as it reacts to a pathogen. Immunosuppressive agents prevent or delay rejection of transplanted organs. Newer methods induce specific tolerance without suppression of immune system.
