English term or phrase: xenograft
Definition from University of South Carolina:
tissue taken from another species, treated and implanted

Example sentence(s):
  • Reports indicate that cryopreserved aortic valve allografts have a better long-term survivability than other bioprostheses, such as the porcine xenograft. Unlike xenografts, allograft valves do not require treatment with glutaraldehyde and may therefore retain much of their original mechanical function. American Assoc. for Thoracic Surgerry
  • Persistent expression of human genes by the xenografts at higher passages was assessed by RT-PCR amplification of the human β–globin gene. This xenograft model was used in the preclinical evaluation of an adenoviral vector containing a β-galactosidase reporter gene and a wild-type p53 gene. ScienceDirect
  • A transparent window chamber allowed noninvasive microscopic observation of human tumor xenograft tissue in athymic nude mice. The xenografts were derived from the LS174T colon carcinoma cell line shown to express CEA in vitro (18) and in vivo (19–21). The National Academy of Sciences

Definition from own experience or research:
Ksenotransplantāti - audi vai orgāni, kas tiek pārstādīti no cita veida organisma.

Example sentence(s):
  • In vivo dati ar multipliem melanomas ksenotransplantātiem imūndeficīta pelēs liecināja, ka muskulāri ievadītais CAV 21 izraisa transplantātu onkolīzi neatkarīgi no attāluma starp transplantātu un vīrusu ievadīšanas vietu. - Third Baltic Congress of Oncology  
  • Ja ksenotransplantāti ir vairāki, bet tikai vienā ievadīts vīruss, tas vairojas ar onkolīzes efektu arī pārējos audzējos. Autori ir pārliecināti, ka telomerāzes specifiskās replikācijas kompetentais adenovīruss var būt noderīgs cilvēka audzēju terapijā. - Doctus. Viroterapija. 2005.
