Abstract

HETEROGRAFTS of human skin or tumour cell lines can be grown in the mouse using antilymphocyte serum (ALS) as immunosuppressant1,2. Human foetal tissue has been successfully grafted to rats treated with cortisone3. We have found that human foetal tissue will grow in mice thymectomized as adults and treated with ALS.
