This video provides information about how the human immune system protects against foreign bodies through the recognition of antigens. It then examines how the same process can work against a patient during organ transplantation and ultimately lead to organ rejection. It then discusses the different forms of organ rejection and looks at the future of organ transplantation including potential alternatives such as stem cells generated organs and bioartificial organs that could completely eliminate the risk for organ rejection.
