Xenoqenelc Grafts

Also known as xenografts or hetetografts, xenogeneic grafts are taken from one species and grafted to another. The antigenic dissimilarity of these grafts is greater than with allogeneic bone. The organic matrix of xenogenic bone is
antigenically dissimilar to that of human bone, and therefore the graft must be treated more vigorously to prevent rapid rejection of the graft. Bone grafts of this variety are rarely used-In oral and maxillofacial surgery.  Advantages are that xenografts do not require another site of operation in the host, and a large quantity of bone can be obtained, Disadvantages are that xenografts do
not provide viable cells for phase I osteogenes
