“Chinese scientists have successfully transplanted the first gene-edited whole pig liver into a human in a breakthrough that could help alleviate organ shortages.

The pig liver, which was edited to delete multiple genes associated with proteins that cause organ rejection, was transplanted into a brain-dead patient on Sunday.

The transplant liver’s blood and liver bile flow were all ‘good’ and the patient showed no sign of organ rejection 96 hours after the surgery, according to a WeChat post on Thursday by the Air Force Medical University, the team’s home institution.”
