A ribosome infusion was prescribed as treatment for extreme cell damage. It was often difficult to find a suitably compatible donor for the infusion, but the compatibility could cross species.

In 2366, Doctor Beverly Crusher attempted to convince Lieutenant Worf to agree to a ribosome infusion to treat the Romulan Patahk, who had suffered extensive cell damage and early neural pathway degeneration while on Galorndon Core, a planet with highly active and dangerous electromagnetic storms. Worf, the only compatible donor aboard the USS Enterprise-D, refused to cooperate in assisting the Romulan and Patahk refused to accept assistance from a Klingon. (TNG: "The Enemy")
