In the late 1940s, researchers began to choose the exponential distribution to describe the life pattern of electronic systems. The exponential distribution has since continued to play a role in lifetime studies analogous to that of the normal distribution in […]

The ideal immunosuppressant would be antigen-specific, inhibiting the immune response to the alloantigens present in the graft (or vice versa alloantigens present in recipient in GVHD) while preserving the recipient's ability to respond to other foreign antigens.
