Pig kidneys transplanted into brain-dead human donor in new study

Sharing is Caring!

For the first time, scientists have successfully transplanted genetically modified pig kidneys into the body of a brain-dead human, an important step toward animal organs potentially becoming viable for transplants to save human lives in the future, something that could help address organ shortages worldwide.

On Thursday, researchers with the University of Alabama (UAB) published the first peer-reviewed study to document this process in depth.

The pig kidneys were taken from pigs that had been genetically modified with 10 key gene edits in order to make the kidneys capable of being transplanted into a human body.
