Anita Ayre*, Shruti Nambiar, Komal Marathe and Divya Nair
Xenogenic cellular therapy is a novel technology with a wide scope for development and management of human
degenerative diseases. Obstinate diseases, injuries and disorders are pigeonholed by abnormal cellular function or
cell death. Xenogenic transplantation can restore diseased or lost tissue to provide curative therapy for such
conditions. Regardless of the benefits offered there exists a lacuna with regards to the safety concerns to the host
environment. Nonetheless, the availability of organs, tissues and cells from animals remains a significant advantage
of the treatment. This has led to the development of a number of products and researchers in the area of life sciences
are showing profound interest to come up with newer advancements and products with diverse applications. The
review focuses on highlighting the basic concepts of the therapy so as to get an insight into its methodology,
applications and the commercialised products available.
Keywords: Xenogenic cell therapy, live cell therapy, organ disorders.
