A four-week-old pig embryo injected with human pluripotent stem cell

The Salk Institute for Biological Studies in the US has combined both concepts and shown it is possible to grow human tissue within a pig. The achievement took four years, 1,500 pig embryos and the stem cells from 40 people.

Now the scientists are planning to genetically edit the pig embryos so they cannot produce organs in the hope that the gaps will be filled by human DNA, in the same way as in the mice experiments.

 

Imagine a human with rat and pig organs what type of treament or backup will physicians use to treat these hybrid humans when something goes wrong? Will the create Hybrid meds also?
