Abstract

ALTHOUGH the classical tissue transplantation investigations by Medawar were performed on rabbits, the lack of isogenic strains such as exist in mice and in guinea-pigs has limited the usefulness of the rabbit in experimental transplantation. Since inbred populations of rabbits are rare, we wish to report preliminary experiments carried out in such a colony.
