“A 71-year-old man in China has become the first living person to receive a liver transplant from a genetically modified pig — and the fifth person reported to have received a pig organ. More than two weeks after the surgery, the man is ‘doing very well’, says Sun Beicheng, a surgeon at the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University in China, who led the transplantation.

The surgeons have not released many details about the procedure, but researchers are encouraged by the apparent success.”
