Title: Transgenic Non-Human Animal and Methods for Stem Cell Engraftment. UMMS10-43; Patent Pending. 

  • A transgenic immunodeficient non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse homozygous for the SCID mutation and having an IL2 receptor gamma chain deficiency. Administration of human stem cells to the mouse in the absence of conditioning by irradiation results in similar or greater levels of engraftment of human stem cells compared to a non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse homozygous.
