    Pig organs could soon be transplanted into humans after major ‘xenotransplantation’ breakthrough

    Scientists have cleared a major barrier to transplanting organs from pigs into humans after removing threatening viruses from the animals' DNA.

    The new research opens up the possibility of breeding animals to harvest their organs to meet the demand for new tissue.

    Some challenges, including major ethical objections still remain, but experts said the breakthrough is a significant step towards pig-to-man transplants, also known as xenotransplantation.
