Immunosuppression via Loss of IL2rγ Enhances Long-Term Functional Integration of hESC-Derived Photoreceptors in the Mouse Retina

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Lamba and colleagues show that immunosuppression can significantly improve the survival and functional integration of hESC-derived cells into recipient mouse retinas as far out as 9 months, suggesting that immunosuppression may be a useful way to enhance clinical cell transplantation outcomes for patients even in a location traditionally considered immune-privileged.
