- Xenosis and xenotransplantation: Addressing the infectious risks posed by an emerging technology. Fishman, Jay A. // Kidney International Supplement;Mar1997, Issue 58, pS-41
Advances in transplantation biology have enhanced the possibility of xenotransplantation as a therapeutic option for end-stage organ failure. The potential spread of animal-derived pathogens to the recipient and to the general population, termed â€˜xenosis,â€™ is a potential...
