Celulas imunes invadem pâncreas em processo de rejeição: video da Nature Medicine

Está no YouTube o filme abaixo (cana da Nature Medicine) sobre o processo de rejeição de transplante de pâncreas.

O blog Spoonful of Medicine divulgou o filme:

 "A new eye on immune responses to tissue transplants

Immune cells travel all over the body, prowling for foreign agents to attack — including transplanted organs. The specifics of transplant rejection remain a topic of intense scientific scrutiny, but it’s been difficult for researchers to observe how and when immune cells gather at the organ during rejection, and how they act once they arrive.
Now, Alejandro Caicedo and his colleagues at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine describe a new technique that provides a fresh perspective on the immune reaction triggered by organ transplants. In a study published online today in theProceedings of the National Academy of the Sciences, Caicedo’s team transplanted mouse pancreatic cells into the eyes of living mice, and then waited for organ rejection"
