This masterclass will present the most up-to-date information on immune tolerance in solid organ transplantation, the current evidence, and intervention trials to achieve immune tolerance using the recipients' own T regulatory cells. Recent research on how the immune system may respond to the T and B cell responses after pregnancy will also be discussed.
