Liver aLow doses (2 x 107) of splenic T cells produce a CGVHD in the LP ^ B6 strain combination; larger T cell inocula (5 x 107) result in lethal AGVHD. ^Sublethal irradiation (600 rad) is necessary to generate chronic GVHD in the B10.D2 ^ BALB/c strain combination. Higher doses of irradiation produce lethal AGVHD.
