Growing Human Organs in PIGS?? http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8078996.stm

Similarity of Pig & Human Anatomy Human Image: http://www.utopiasilver.com/images/human-anatomy.jpg Pig Image: http://www.augustatech.edu/anatomy/pig6.jpg

A new article at BBC outlined a study : Adult cells in ear & bone marrow of pig changed into stem cells May be able to grow pig stem cells to replace human organs

Adult cells in ear & bone marrow of pig changed into stem cells

May be able to grow pig stem cells to replace human organs

“Blank cells” = no job Could replace dead damaged cells Found in adults & embryo Embryonic cells might be “more flexible” but must kill embryo http://www.srsp.net/kassel/images/Pluripotent_Stem_Cells.jpg

“Blank cells” = no job

Could replace dead damaged cells

Found in adults & embryo
