Figure 6

Neutrophil infiltration is evident in the media of allografts immediately post transplant and inversely correlates with SMC loss. (a) C3H allograft transplanted into a B6 recipient harvested at 1d post-transplant showing NФ (indicated by arrows) within the media (demarcated by arrowheads); (b) mean medial SMC (red squares) and NФ (black circle) per aortic cross-section were enumerated between 1d and 2wk post-transplant. n = 4-6 per time point.
