The answer is 1, 3
Rationales:
1. Improved immunosuppressive therapy has reduced the severity of organ rejection and the problems related to the therapy itself.
2. Using syngraft donors, or identical twin donors, would require that the donor be dead.
3. Improvement in tissue typing has reduced problems with rejection.
4. Xenografting occurs between two species. Transplanting hearts from another species into humans is not commonplace.
5. The greater understanding of histocompatibility has improved the outcome of transplants of all organs and tissues.
