Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The major developments in pig-to-non-human primate heart xenotransplantation during the past 20 years are summarized, largely through the experience of one investigator. Genetic modifications to organ-source pigs have been important steps in increasing heart xenograft survival from a few minutes in 1986 to 2 to 6 months in 2005.
