Xenotransplantation trial given go ahead

Xenotransplantation clinical trials where pig tissue is transplanted into humans in order to help treat diabetes have been given provisional approval by the Minister of Health. Should make for some interesting discussion.

See Go-ahead for pig cell trial on humans – National News – Dominion Post.

See also the xenotransplantation information at Publications [Bioethics Council].
