Resumo We investigated histopathological changes following murine fetal intestinal transplantation. Fetal intestine, obtained from a pregnant C57BL/6 mouse, was transplanted into BALB/c and C57Bl/6 mice. Recipients were divided into three groups: isogeneic, and allogeneic treated with 3 mg/kg/day gangliosides (Allo-a) or 9 mg/kg/day (Allo-b). One week after transplant, all grafts showed good viability, confirmed by cellular mitosis in the mucosa and a well-defined propria muscular layer. Isogeneic grafts showed a thicker muscular layer than in the Allo-a (P = 0.02) and Allo-b (P = 0.004) groups. There was no dierence in number of mitotic cells among groups. Goblet cells were significantly reduced in allografts treated with 3 mg gangliosides (P = 0.013) or 9 mg gangliosides (P = 0.002) compared to isografts. Villi height was similar in all studied groups. There was no difference in positivity of the enteric nervous system among groups. Atrophy was more common in the allogeneic groups, suggesting that isografts had better development than allografts treated with gangliosides. (c) 2006 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
