Carbohydrate materials have become increasingly utilized in transplantation and cell/tissue engineering within the past year.
 

Summary: 650
Carbohydrate materials have become increasingly utilized in
transplantation and cell/tissue engineering within the past year.
This has been well documented in recent applications of
immobilized or soluble -galactosyl epitopes
(i.e. oligosaccharides with a terminal Gal13Gal sequence)
in preventing hyperacute rejection in pig-to-primate
xenotransplantation. In addition, -galactosyl polymers have
been shown to exhibit much greater activity (up to 104 times)
than -galactosyl monomers in inhibiting the binding of anti-
galactosyl antibodies to pig kidney epithelial cells and assisting
in the prevention of cytotoxicity in human serum.
