English to Japanese translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical (general)
Additional field(s): Medical: Cardiology
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

  • ドナーとする動物については、動物種の選択、飼育環境の整備、微生物学的検査等を適切に行い、動物への病原体の感染を防ぐこと。また、異種移植片の採取・調製は、病原体の混入を防ぐ適切な環境の下で実施し、更に、異種移植片に対して可能な限りのスクリーニングを行うことにより、病原体が移植患者に感染する危険性を最小限に抑えること。 - 異種移植の実施に伴う公衆衛
