Best Answer

The first successful transplant - of a kidney - occurred in 1953. The organ was not rejected because donor and recipient were identical twins and therefore genetically identical. However, new drugs such as cortisone, which appeared in the 1950s, and cyclosporine, which arrived on the scene in the late 1970s, were developed to lessen the problem of rejection. Combinations of drugs are now used to prevent rejection in transplant patients. The most common transplanted organ was the kidney and the heart transplant.

Which organ cannot be transplanted?

Answerthe brain and the immune system cannot be transplantedAnswerMost organs (except the brain) can be transplanted. However only a few organs are essential for life (heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas, lungs, small intestine), which is why many organs are not transplanted - e.g stomach, spleen, gall bladder, uterus, overies, large intestine etc... are not essential for life, so are not commonly transplanted.AnswerThe main organ which cannot get transplanted through one specie or human doner is the BRAIN.AnswerAnything can be transplanted. It is whether you mean "successfully" transplanted or not. Some things cannot be successfully transplanted (yet), such as brains. And some things are not transplanted (much) because they're not essential for life - such as limbs, stomachs (yes, not essential!), and large intestines. Limb transplants tend to be unsuccessful, as are other transplants where the thing transplanted is external - i.e you can see it. Ovaries have now been transplanted successfully (i.e have produced kids), but the procedure is not commonplace.
