Xenotransplantation: Can Porcine Organs be a Viable Solution to the Human Organ Donor Shortage?
This literature review outlines the current and emerging research being done for porcine organs being compatible for human organ transplantation. The shortage of organ donations has become a national emergency. Throughout the last 40 years, research models have been developed showing promise for genetically modified porcine organs being successfully transplanted into non-human primates. These research models have led to the development of clinical trials to begin in the near future for porcine to human organ transplants.
