The presentation will review the safety and efficacy of cellular immunotherapy with MDR-101 for induction of functional immune tolerance in recipients of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched, living donor kidney transplants.
Details of the oral presentation are as follows:

Session Title: In-Depth Look at Transplantation: Basic and Translational
Date/ Time: Friday, October 23, 5:00pm-7:00pm ET
MDR-101 is intended to induce donor specific immune tolerance in order to avert transplant kidney rejection, eliminate the cumulative and serious side effects associated with immunosuppressive drugs and thereby preserve transplant kidney function and survival. Medeor’s Phase 3 trial is supported in part by a grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
