loss of life of Man Who received a Pig-coronary heart Transplant is still a secret - The Wall street Journal

doctors can't completely explain the demise of the first recipient of a genetically modified pig heart, but they provided a few theories in a new analyze—and pointed out scientific trials of pig-to-human organ transplantation may still begin despite the continuing mystery.

David Bennett, a fifty seven-yr-ancient handyman from Hagerstown, Md., received the heart in an experimental operation in January on the school of Maryland medical center in Baltimore and died two months later. The surgical procedure—an attempt to extend the lifetime of a desperately unwell patient who had been kept alive for weeks on a desktop that took over the services of his heart and lungs—came after the U.S. food and Drug Administration issued a special emergency authorization for it.
