This book contains 18 papers by various authors, all internationally recognized experts in their field, presented at a symposium on cornea graft failure held at the Ciba Foundation in London, England, on Nov 15 through 17, 1972. An introduction and summary that accurately defines the problem and summarizes the results is presented by the moderator, Prof Barrie Jones. A short bibliography accompanies each paper and a good index is provided. One of the strong points of this publication is the open discussion that follows each contribution. In some cases, the discussion is actually longer than the paper. These discussions outline the limits of our knowledge in this frequently controversial field. Among the many excellent contributions, allograft rejection is reviewed at great length and two significant series of patients are presented with the incidence of allograft rejection in each series.
In one paper, written by Ali Khodadoust, MD, increasing allograft rejection
