Xenotransplantation

January 23, 2022

A xenotransplant is a transplant of organs or tissues between different species.

History

On January 10, 2022, a genetically modified pig heart was implanted in a 57-year-old patient with heart problems. He underwent surgery and was successfully operated on by a team of surgeons from the University of Maryland. The animal's heart had previously undergone genomic editing in order to remove sugar from the cells, which was responsible for the almost immediate rejection of organs.
