Rahul Choudhary, Gautam, SS Sangwan and Rakesh Ahuja
Xenotransplantation is a burgeoning technology that could provide a solution to the shortage of organs and tissue for transplantation. It does, however, raise many moral and ethical dilemmas. The aim of this study was to evaluate the perception of veterinary students' and scientists at Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Hisar to determine factors that affect their acceptance. The sample constituted randomly chosen scientists and students. The perception was conceptualized as positive or negative inclination towards acceptance of xenotransplantation and was assessed using a questionnaire. Mean perception about xenotransplantation score of respondents was 61.27 and the differences in mean score of scientists and students was negligible. Further, a majority of respondents were having moderate acceptance of xenotransplantation. Almost one third were having a strongly favourable perception. Educational qualification was significantly having an impact on the perception about xenotransplantation.
