Acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) remains one of the main obstacles after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT). Using a well-established mouse BMT model in which aGVHD is induced across a haploidentical mismatch, we show that the expression of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) can be induced by cobalt-protoporphyrin IX (CoPP) in aGVHD target organs such as liver and bowel and that the ...
