ho·mo·graft

(hō'mō-graft)
Type of skin graft from another person or a cadaver, used in the treatment of burns.

homograft

A graft taken from a member of the same species as the recipient. Compare HETEROGRAFT.

homograft

or allograft a transplant from one individual to another individual that is of the same species but has a different genotype, and is therefore subject to rejection by the recipient as it contains foreign antigens. see HISTOCOMPATABILITY.

homograft

; homologous graft tissue or organ transplanted from one individual (donor) to another (recipient) with sufficient histocompatibility to prevent graft tissue rejection by recipient

ho·mo·graft

(hō'mō-graft)
