Des porcs génétiquement modifiés pour donner leurs organes aux humains

Mais cette nouvelle avancée doit permettre de transplanter des organes porcins plus volumineux et qui posent un risque de transmission de virus plus important. En effet, cela fait des années que des scientifiques se penchent sur la question du don d'organes, notamment en raison de leur similitude génétique avec l'homme. Parmi les organes qui pourraient être prélevés figurent les reins. La solution pourrait venir d'animaux à quatre pattes: de porcelets génétiquement modifiés. Et ils ont réussi leur pari à en croire un article publié jeudi 10 dans la revue américaine Science.

Trente-sept porcelets sont ainsi nés avec des organes pouvant potentiellement être greffés sur des humains.

C'est une avancée qui pourrait révolutionner la greffe d'organes. Malgré tout: plus de 22.600 patients restaient en attente d'un organe en 2016.
