Autoinoculation

Definition
Autoinoculation is a treatment procedure where cells are removed from a person’s body, treated or altered medically, and then re-injected back into the body. This type of procedure uses a person’s own cells to help prevent an immune reaction.

The term can also refer to the transfer of microorganisms from one location of the body to another.
