Kidneys from a genetically altered pig implanted in a brain-dead patient

Researchers have recorded the latest amazing experiment in a series of remarkable feats in organ transplantation in the quest to save human lives with the organs of genetically modified pigs.

After transplanting a pig’s heart weeks ago, surgeons in Alabama transplanted a pig’s kidney into a brain-dead man, a step-by-step rehearsal of a procedure they hope to transplant into surviving patients, possibly later this year.
