Scientific hurdles Transplantation Getting Closerhave developed experiments with pigs genetically for compatibility with the human immune hope that cross-species transplantation could soon be an option for patients with diabetes and other currently incurable diseases lifted. However, many scientific hurdles remain before the goal of inducing long-term tolerance of animal tissues and organs in the human recipient to a special paper in the 15th July issue of the journal Transplantation by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, part of Wolters Kluwer Health published. ‘The potential benefits of successful xenotransplantation is a large number of patients with very different clinical syndromes remain immense, fully justifies the current efforts to work towards its clinical introduction,’concludes the article stay erect . The lead author is Dr. David Cooper of Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Cooper and colleagues review progress to date with a strain of genetically engineered pigs hoping coping with chronic shortage of organs and tissues for transplantation. Animals do not have the gene for the ‘alpha-1,3 – galactosyltransferase ‘ is an enzyme normally pig vasculature. People have a natural, preformed antibodies GT what in the immediate rejection of any pig – to-human transplants. The fact that these genetically lacking ‘GT – knockout’pigs GT removed a barrier to cross – species transplantation , or xenotransplantation, between pigs and humans. Apart from the possible transplantation of organs such as the kidney or heart, pig as potentially valuable source of islet cells viewed the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas to be used in transplantation to treat type 1 diabetes.
