How do our bodies not reject implants?



  1. 0 Votes

    The body will accept an implant if its surface is not recognizably foreign to the body’s protecting mechanisms. For example, the material of titanium when implanted in the body to support bones is not seen as foreign to the body; the bone grows around it. But implanted cellular or protein components from tissue or organ donors might be recognized as foreign. In this case, the body might start developing attacking cells to rid the body of what it sees as invasive tissue.
