The FDA wishes to remind physicians and clinical investigators that its definition of xenotransplantation includes any procedure that involves the transplantation, implantation, or infusion into a human recipient of human body fluids, cells, tissues, or organs that have had ex vivo contact with live nonhuman animal cells, tissues, or organs. The definition includes human embryos co-cultured with living nonhuman animal cellular material, such as bovine tubal cells or Vero cells, and includes feeder layer cells irradiated to render them nonproliferative.
