US man gets heart from genetically-modified pig in world's first transplant

  • Publicado el 10 ene 2022
  • In an unprecedented move, doctors in Baltimore have transplanted a genetically-modified pig heart into a human being.

    David Bennett, 57-years-old, had no other option after being diagnosed with terminal heart disease and was deemed too sick to be eligible for a human donation.

    With less than six months to live, Baltimore doctors offered him a medical leap of faith with the groundbreaking procedure.

    Jackson Proskow explains what this historic operation could mean for other people waiting for organ transplants.

    Has anyone read the back story of this man? It’s unbelievable.

      @DaDoge924 again..all I said was if anyone heard his backstory. I’m not sure why people are seeing something different. Way to interrupt the worst. Jeez.

      @chuckstable165 all I said was if anyone heard is backstory. Not sure how that meant anything else but asking if anyone has heard his back story..

      Someones criminal record does not affect the medical care they are entitled to. That would be grossly unethical.

    "Most animal to human transplants do not make it beyond 2 months".... maybe you should have waited until 3 months post transplant to say it is successful.

      @aruk13 The fact that he didn't die immediately is reason enough to celebrate. Even if it only lasts 3 months (which it has in monkeys) that's enough to serve as a stopgap before a new heart can be found.

      @Das Fear No, they have never genetically altered the donor animal.

      @aruk13 There is a chemical process that occurs when the body rejects an organ. This is treated with medication. In this case as far as I can tell, they are not using the organ rejection medication.
      And that is success.

      Amalgamations of human and beast were being practiced by brilliant minds who because of their long life span could develop incredible feats of scientific marvels. But defacing the very image of God that we were created in was a step too far to go unaddressed. Today hardened men will seek to repeat the evil that led to worldwide destruction and just like yester years.. God will end life on earth.

      @ricky starduster It's hard to argue with arrogance or ignorance. You've been tricked into swallowing a load of junk information that keeps you from understanding you're own potential and the purpose for which God placed man on earth. You actually are so blinded by this warped thinking that you believe we are living longer now than in the past.. LOL. The Word of God which supercedes all others plainly let's us know that it is because of our collective spiritually dwarfed minds and our affinity to sin that mankind walks the earth barely living to 100. The oldest recorded life was 969 years back when living for hundreds of years was common. If you don't believe and are not willing to objectively investigate the question of God and its validity then do NOT be surprised when all your false ideas start to crumble before your face and the rude awakening of God true existence straight cold clocks you up side your head.

      God has extended an olive branch to us even though He did nothing wrong and yet we continue to ignore His claims. Our rejection earns the prize for which it is so hungrily seeking.. death!

      @Jesse Doiron Trites There has only and always been ONE true God. All other forms of deities were made up and fashioned in order to fill the gap left in the hearts of those who did not want to serve the true God.. therefore they had to make up a god for themselves and their kids to worship. It was always an attempt at stealing the minds of men away from the consistent truth found in the Creator.

      @Jonathan Johnson You and I, everything and everyone around is the proof. Within it all is the finger print of God.. intelligent design!

      You have to been incredibly naive to think that any of it could be explained by random chance. Do your research and find out why many scientists have already come to agree that there is too much evidence pointing at intelligent design to be closed minded to the possibility.

      The proof is YOU! 😁❤
