s CD4+ T cells protects mice from disease in a mouse model of multiple sclerosis. Now, Mohamed Sayegh and colleagues from Harvard Medical School, Boston, have shown that a short course of this antibody prolongs the survival of nongenetically identical heart transplants (allografts) in mice. If treatment with the TIM-1specific antibody was combined with subtherapeutic doses of the immunosuppressive drug rapamycin the allografts were not rejected for the length of the study. The mechanisms underlying the effects of the TIM-1specific antibody were found to involve inhibition of alloreactive Th1 responses and preservation of Th2 responses. In addition, regulatory T cells were also shown to have a central role, as if mice were depleted of these cells prior to transplantation the TIM-1specific antibody failed to prolong allograft survival. The authors therefore suggested that TIM-1specific antibody therapy might provide a new approach to preventing transplant rejection.
