Adoptive transfer of immunoregulatory function. Transplantation of cells with immunoregulatory function to control unwanted immune reactions is not a new proposition. From the earliest discovery that transferring regulatory cells from tolerant to nontolerant animals could establish tolerance in the recipient, it was suggested that the same principle could be applied therapeutically in man. However, while adoptive transfer became a common experimental practice, its translation to the clinic met many obstacles, not least the difficulty of identifying and isolating human regulatory cells.
