(7) Extracellular matrices, such as swine small-intestinal submucosa in the form of a xenogeneic graft, can provide the framework for wound healing and reconstruction.' Swine small-intestinal submucosa xenogeneic grafting was successful in repairing severe skin defects in a red-railed hawk, 2 barn owls (Tyto alba), an umbrella cockatoo (Cacatua alba), and an American crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos).
* xenogeneic products, derived from cells or tissues removed from an organism of another species and used in/on a human patient - these products, however, reveal high immunogeneic potential, including a high risk of transmission of viral infections.
Cellular encapsulation is used for major applications, including the immobilization of allogeneic or xenogeneic cells in semipermeable membranes and immune protective membranes to deliver biological products to patients without the need of immunosuppression, and for treating secretory cell dysfunction.
Moreover, implantation into a rat model showed that decellularised xenogeneic collagen scaffolds were able to integrate well into septal cartilage defects (7).

The Cell Pouch is a novel, proprietary, scalable, implantable prevascularized macroencapsulation device for the long-term survival and function of therapeutic cells (donor, stem cell derived cells and xenogeneic cells) which then release proteins and/or hormones as required to treat disease.

First, scaffold materials which can be produced from synthetic (i.e., polymers), biosynthetic (i.e., polyhydroxyalcanoates), or natural (i.e., xenogeneic or allogeneic extracellular matrix-derived scaffolds) sources, are chemically and structurally different, and therefore could positively or negatively be associated with distinctive responses within the body (8).
"Porcine matrices have several drawbacks, such as unknown transfer of animal related infectious diseases, xenogeneic rejection patterns, or asymmetric sinus dimensions of the pig aortic valve root, different from human, as a potential reason for late valve failure." Id.
