In World First Transplant; A Man Received Genetically-Modified Pig Heart

A. Pandey


Abstract: Present paper aims to highlight great advancement in medical history where genetically altered heart from pig was transplanted to a man. For the first time in history, doctors successfully transplanted a genetically modified pig heart into a patient. With the patient doing well after three days, UMMC officials said that the genetically modified animal heart is functioning like a human heart without immediate rejection by the body. Pig hearts are used to study the anatomy of human hearts because they are very similar in structure, size and function to human hearts. These similarities, combined with the fact that they are much more readily available than human hearts, make them an ideal choice for research and study. There?s a shortage of human organs for transplants and each day many patients die due to unavailability of organs on time.
