Dendritic cells (DCs) are bone marrow-derived, professional antigen-presenting cells, with inherent tolerogenic function. The ability of immature or maturation-resistant DCs to regulate alloantigen-specific T-cell responses and to promote tolerance induction has been well demonstrated in organ and bone marrow transplantation. Recent data suggest that DCs can also promote long-term survival of composite tissue allografts in the absence of continued immunosuppressive drug therapy.
