Clinical Xenotransplant Registry

The World Health Organization (WHO) is actively encouraging national health authorities to contribute information on the clinical xenotransplantation activities that are taking place in their countries. In parallel, reports from IXA members or any person aware of such practices may be a complementary source of information for this international inventory of xenotransplantation practices in humans. The information will ultimately be used to inform national health authorities, health care staff, and the public. The registry’s objective is to encouraging good xenotransplantation practices under internationally harmonized, consistent guidelines and regulation.

We remind our membership to please register any clinical xenotransplantation activities that they have conducted in the past, or may otherwise be aware of, through the WHO Geneva website, at
