PURPOSE: The cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying lung allograft rejection remain poorly understood, especially obliterative bronchiolitis (OB). We investigated the potential role of interleukin (IL)-17A in lung transplant rejection in a mouse model, because previous studies in clinical and rodent models have implicated IL-17A in both acute and chronic rejection.
