A new way to test medical procedures?

Start with someone who's already dead.... The two transplants last year, by researchers from NYU Langone, were performed in functionally dead patients who were kept alive on ventilators for several days. In both instances a genetically modified pig kidney was transplanted into the recently deceased human subjects, who were then monitored for signs of immune rejection for several days.

The pig heart, transplanted into Mr Bennett. For the sake of the pig that got the chop, let us hope that Gawd is with him.
