Would an allograft be rejected if it came from a relative?
Statistically, it has been shown that the chances are significantly lower for an allograft to be rejected from a first degree blood relative. However, it is still possible. An autograft (from self to self) is the surest way to minimize rejection concerns. ...

What is meant by the terms autograft allograft xenotransplant and immunosuppression?
Autograft - Tissues transplanted from one part of the body to another on the same person. Allograft - Organs transplanted from one body to another. Xenotransplant - tissues or whole organs transplanted from one species to another Immunosuppression - lowering the body's immune response to stop rejection of the transplant. hope this helps =D ...

What is meant by the terms autograft allograft xenotransplant immunosuppression?
Autograft means that a tissue is taken from one part of the body and transferred to another part of the body of the same person. Allograft is a Graft of a piece of tissue or organ from one individual to another of the same species. Xenotransplantation is the transplant of living cells, tissues or organs from one species to another such as from pigs to humans. Such cells, tissues or organs, are called xenografts. Suppression of the immune response, by drugs or...

What is an allographt?
An allograft is a surgical procedure that transplants cells, tissues, or whole organs from one individual to another of the SAME species. The caveat is that the individuals must be genetically distinct. This distinguishes an allograft from a syngeneic isograft in which the individuals are genetically identical (i.e. monozygotic twins or cloned mice). A xenograft is between individuals of different species and an autograft is a transplant within the same individual (i.e. skin grafts for burn victims). ...
Asked in Science, Organ Transplants
If a xenotransplant was done for a human how can you be sure that the organ put into the human will grow properly with the human?
Within transplantation surgery, there is nothing to be "sure" about, even when working with allograft transplants. With xenograft transplants (which are exceptionally rarely performed), risks are much higher and there are additional risks which do not occur with allograft transplants. In either case, there is no way to be "sure" of a good outcome, due to the many known and unknown random variables which affect outcomes. ...

OR a tissue or organ that is grafted into a new position on the body of the individual from which it was removed. allograft is tissue taken from one patient (the donor) to be used in another, such as for a heart or kidney transplant. OR a tissue or organ obtained from one member of a species and grafted...

Asked in Health
Why is a patient more unlikely to reject an allograft if it comes from a close relative?
Because, genetically - the donated 'cells' are a closer match to the patient's DNA structure than if they came from a stranger. This means that the patient's immune system is more likely to accept the donation than reject it. ...
