In my last blog ( Genetically Modified Human Cow’s Milk? ) we saw how Chinese geneticists modified 300 dairy cows so they can produce “human” breast milk. Little did I know that their Japanese counterparts were doing something similar with pigs! According to a recent Telegraph article , the Japanese are growing GM engineered organs in animals (rats, mice, pigs) to ultimately replace faulty human parts. The researchers injected stem cells from rats into the embryos of mice that had been genetically altered so they could not produce their own organs. The result? Mice with rat organs. They have already produced pigs that were able to generate human blood by injecting blood stem cells from humans into pig foetuses. The researchers say the technique could allow pigs to grow human organs from patient’s stem cells for use as transplants. By using a patient’s own stem cells it could help to reduce the risk of the transplanted organ being rejected while also providing a plentiful supply of donor organs. At the European Society of Human Genetics, Professor Hiromitsu Nakauchi of Tokyo University declared: “Our ultimate goal is to generate human organs from induced pluripotent stem cells
