Summary
"This book recounts the several historical attempts to transplant animal organs into humans and draws attention to the immense potential and promise of this form of therapy. The problems that remain, and recent break-throughs in overcoming rejection and in "humanizing" pig organs for transplantation, are fully discussed. The authors also provide a consideration of the social and ethical questions posed by such procedures."--BOOK JACKET
