From the late 1700s until the early 1900s, the field of immunology was slowly evolving through the works of numerous independent scientists. Among the notable breakthroughs were Ehrlich's discovery of antibodies and antigens, Lansteiner's blood typing, and Metchnikoff's theory of host resistance. Because of advances in suturing techniques at the end of the 19th century, surgeons began to transplant organs in their lab research. At the start of the 20th century, enough experimentation had taken place to know that xenographic (cross species) transplants invariably failed, allogenic transplants (between individuals of same species) usually failed, while autografts (within the same individual, generally skin grafts) were almost always successful. אי-ספיקת לב. אי-ספיקת לב (באנגלית: Heart Failure, לעתים גם chronic heart failure) הוא מצב קליני כרוני בו הלב איננו מסוגל לעמוד בדרישת אספקת הדם של האיברים השונים בגוף.
