Objectives
To perform acute experiments in laboratory animals (rabbit) whereby transplantation of intestine from one animal to the other is carried out. The use of FK-506, a new immunosuppressive agent, will be tried at a later period when chronic experiments are performed. These experiments are a prelude to small bowel transplantation in neonates with short gut syndrome.
