Abstract

In summary, human-type and simian-type blood group analysis documents the immunologic and genetic proximity of the macaque and baboon as well as the anthropoid ape and human. It also suggests that the species-specific barrier between macaque and baboon is comparable to that observed between chimpanzee and human. Therefore, we propose that the readily available Old World monkey with its humanlike anatomy and physiology is the model of choice for the study of xenotransplantation in humans.
