Pig lungs in human transplants move step closer

The use of pig lungs in transplants into humans has moved a step closer with a medical breakthrough.

The very idea of using Pigs heart valves is chilling enough as people are corrupting themselves with animals parts, but Pigs lungs, animals that are being used to create blood for that will be mixed into the blood supply, human ears that can be grown on the back of a mouse and then harvested, Rat brain cells behing used to fly airplanes, human brain cells being put into rats brains, nano machines being put in sun tan lotion that enter the body through the skin, nano bots being put into seriums and being injected into the body, all of which never go away. Science and medicine has crossed the road from  Do No Harm to making people into science fiction and horror movie experiments.  It has come to the place that one must check even the creams they rub on their faces to see if human placentas, human T-cells from aborted fetuses or cells harvested from dead bodies are ingredients in what one is using.  Everything that we have mentioned above we have documented and posted in News Articles on this website   No animal and no dead babies parts or extracts are ever going into this temple of the Lord to so defile it.  And none should ever go into bible beleiving Christian’s bodies either.

Scientists in Melbourne, Australia, used a ventilator and pump to keep the animal lungs alive and "breathing" while human blood flowed in them.

Experts estimated the work could lead to the first animal-human transplants within five years.

Dr Glenn Westall, who helped conduct the experiment, said: “The blood went into the lungs without oxygen and came out with oxygen, which is the exact function of the lungs.

"It showed that these lungs were working perfectly well and doing as we were expecting them to do.

“This is a significant advance compared to experiments that have been performed over the past 20 years."

The breakthrough came after scientists were able to remove a section of pig DNA, which had made the pig organs incompatible with human blood.

Previous attempts to combine unmodified pig lungs and human blood ended abruptly two years ago when blood clots began forming almost immediately, causing the organs to become so blocked no blood could pass through.

Human DNA is now added to the pigs as they are reared to reduce clotting and the number of lungs which are rejected.

The full results of the research are due to be announced in Vancouver in August.

The issue has prompted an ethical debate about the use of animals for human transplants.

Medical ethicist Professor Nicholas Tonti-Filippini said: “It is basically a human-pig, a hybrid, or whatever you want to call it.

“It is about whether the community is prepared to accept a part human, part animal."
