    Xenotransplantation

    I came across this website of a series of shows on PBS called Frontline. I remember seeing this show when it first aired but didn't have access to it. It is called FrontLine's "Organ Farm".

    Thanks for this post Dr. Young, wild stuff.

    FYI - There is a 14 minute video preview of one of the stories from the Frontline episode.
    Transplanting fetal pig neural cells into a stroke victim's brain, whom suffers partial paralysis. Wild!
