- An “isograft“ is performed between genetically identical individuals (i.e. monozygotic twins).
- A “heterograft” is not a word that is used in transplantation immunology.
- A “xenograft” is a transplant that is performed across species.
- An “autograft” is a transplant from one location in the body to another.
- An allograft is a transplant between two members of the same species who are not genetically identical. So option “e” is the right answer.
310.c. Serum sickness
312.e. B cell
315.c. Reverse transcriptase
316.b. Human Chorionic Gonadotropoin (HCG)
317.a. rheumatoid arthritis
