Merge from Allograft
This article deal with exactly the same subject as Allograft. Everything could be put here in Allotransplantation to be consistent with e.g. Autotransplantation and Xenotransplantation. Mikael Häggström (talk) 16:21, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
Don't Merge from Allograft
Although the two articles do discuss the same basic topic, allograft is the term ,used more commonly by surgeons so people searching for information would search for "allograft" instead of "allotransplantation". Autotransplantation is the act of transplanting the allograft. I think the two articles can stand on their own. [User:A.

preganancy as allograft
I have deleted the section, it was mildly amusing, but no one would call an organ transplant a type of pregnancy so I do not see why pregnancy should by compared to organ transplantation. Methusedalot (talk) 01:00, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
I'm wondering WHY it's called "homograft" if "homo-" means "same". That directly contradicts "allo-", and the intended meaning, except for the fact that both donors are humans.
Is the "homo" in this word Greek or Latin? If it's "homo" as in Homo Sapiens that would kind of make sense, but that "homo" is not generally used as a prefix.
