Abstract T cells and macrophages play a major role in the rejection of xenografted islets. Depending on the phylogenetic disparity, direct or indirect antigen presentation is predominant. The aim of this study was to analyze in vitro the predominance of direct or indirect presentation by depleting antigen-presenting cells in concordant and discordant xenogeneic combinations. In vivo, we analyzed the effect of macrophage depletion on concordant and discordant islet xenograft survival to assess in which combination this strategy can be used as therapeutic tool.
