How to use "Xenografted" in context?
Xenografts, also known as transplantations of cells from animals to humans, are becoming increasingly popular as a way to treat a range of diseases. Cells from a donor animal are transferred into a human recipient, often using a special device known as a xenotransplant.
Xenografts are usually more successful than traditional transplantation methods, because they allow the recipient's body to learn to deal with the new cells. This means that the donor cells are less likely to rejection and to cause tissue damage.
