XENOTRANSPLANTATION: The Things You Need to Know

Click the picture below to read a quick overview.




Welcome to my Xenotransplantation website. In this website you will be educated upon the different aspects of Xenotransplantation. The development of xenotransplantation is driven by the fact that the demand for human organs exceeds the supply. Currently 10 patients die daily, only in the United States, who are awaiting lifesaving organ transplants. These transplants may be therapeutic for diseases such as neurodegenerative disorders or diabetes. The potential benefits are obvious; however xenotransplantation raises many ethical concerns as well as risks of infection (2) .

Do the risks outweigh the benefits? You decide.
