Graft-versus-Host Diseases can Be Predicted

.... Graft-versus-host disease is a complication of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation, which results from recognition of recipient antigens by immune T cells from the donor. Two papers published this week investigate how graft versus host disease might be predicted after hematopoietic cell transpl...
