A kidney transplanted from a genetically engineered pig has provided one of the best results in interspecies organ transplants. The transplanted kidney kept a monkey alive for two years. This development is a step that pushes us forward in developing transplantable organs for humans from other animals, a method called xenotransplantation. The work involves making genetic edits that prevent the receiver’s immune system from attacking the transplant. The method also neutralizes the growth of viruses in the organ.
