Rate this:
A gripping plea for public debate, this program offers a dynamic cross-section of views on xenotransplantation and the ethical questions it is raising. Bioethicists, researchers, academics, medical professionals, and others from institutions and companies such as Harvard Medical School, the University of Oxford, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PPL Therapeutics, and Immerge BioTherapeutics shed light on a number of pivotal issues. Among them are the safety of animal-to-human transplants, transgenic manipulation to prevent hyperacute rejection, the societal need for biosecurity versus the personal right to privacy, and the ramifications of cross-species modification. A concise history of allotransplantation is also included.
