Body & Transplants - Play Nice! is quickly becoming one of the nations leading sites for information. Yesterday, this article was posted that talks about a break through in science that may lead to the end of transplant rejection.

Marquardt writes:
"Using a complex that contained a molecule known as interleukin-2, a molecule that promotes T cell proliferation, the researchers radically increased the number of Tregs in healthy mice before performing the transplants, effectively quieting the killer T cells"

What this means is there is a much lower chance of the body rejecting a transplant! Now this is still in early testing, but scientists are hopeful for the future. Pretty sweet!
