A team of Chinese scientists have successfully transplanted organs from pigs to three monkeys in what could potentially prove to be a step forward in finding solutions to the global organ shortage.

Speaking on behalf of monkeys, I appreciate the work of these scientists, but FFS can you guys focus on all the viruses coming out of China?

Subby doesn't English good because "from" and "by" aren't synonyms and that's not even an ambiguous usage

"All the organs have been working perfectly inside the receivers' bodies, according to the report."

"But the eight-year-old heart recipient died after seven days, while the nine-year-old monkey with a porcine kidney lived just 24 hours following the three procedures performed on June 13."

Why not both?

Surviving and taking 16 days to die are not the same thing.

Let them keep working. Since COVID can cause organ damage, we're gonna need a lot more replacement parts

Isn't this just pants and overalls?

OK; everyone who's willing to undergo a surgical PERV treatment raise your hand. Anyone? Anyone?

A spokesperson for the hospital said the team used a genome-editing technique known as porcine endogenous retroviruses (PERV) knockout to perform the task.

It could lead to human testing or usage at some point.

CSB: Way back in the mid 90's I was a Pharmacy Tech @ UNMC. To save a liver patient they had him on a pigs liver until a donor could be found. Liver was next to the bed in a sterile bowl. Tubes & machines every where. IIRC the dude got a liver & lived.

Livers are the least immunogenic of all the organ transplants, kidneys in the middle and things like lungs and intestines don't last very long at all. Not surprising that the liver was the one to work.
