I don't know if you caught it last night, but there was a fascinating discussion about xenotransplants last night here on TransplantLyfe (it's in the education tab). The doctor who talked about it was sharing how they genetically modify pigs to help them be suitable donors for potential human trials. He talked about how heart transplants would be the organ to lead the way, since it was more simple as just a pump, while kidneys and livers were more difficult to match the function of a human. I'm really interested to hear more about this work.
What do you think about xenotransplants? Do you think it would be a good way to help people to get the organs they need because of the massive shortages? Did you see the webinar last night?
