Xenotransplantation: Basic Research and Clinical Applications
|von Jeffrey L. Platt|
Synopsis Organ and tissue transplantation has become valuable approaches to treating disease, yet is limited by the shortage of human donors. Fewer than five percent of transplantations that should occur happen because of this shortage. With recent advances in our knowledge of immunology, the practicality of xenotransplantation (the use of animals in lieu of human as organ and tissue donors) has increased. This title brings the latest authoritative research from leaders in transplantation immunology in the area of xenotransplantation and its application to transplantations in humans.
