medicinePig-Monkey Hybrids Created to Eventually Generate Human Organs in Pigs

Researchers injected D-ESCs (embryonic stem cells) into porcine blastocysts (pig pre-embyros) to obtain neonatal interspecies chimeras. The D-ESCs differentiated into all three germ layers in the pig fetuses, consistent with a previous study reporting human/pig chimeras. The human/pig fetuses survived …
