I was at the cancer center a lot and did a lot of online research on transplants at the time. It seems if anything came of his idea I would have heard about it.

It would seem like it wouldn't be the T-cells in the organ to be implanted that would cause rejection, but the T-cells in the body of whoever got the organ implanted into them. The immune system is very complex and I would bet there is more to rejection than just T-cells.
