Abstract

Transplantation tolerance remains an elusive goal as B-cell-initiated chronic humoral rejection evades current immunosuppression. B-cell-directed therapy is thus emerging as a key component in achieving transplantation tolerance and long-term graft survival. Here, we propose strategies of B-cell repertoire remodeling to achieve humoral unresponsiveness to donor antigens with implementation of fundamental B-cell immunobiology and use of newly developed B-cell-directed agents.
