ABC 6 News story about cloning research and cloned organs.
ABC 6 reports that the same researchers who cloned Dolly the sheep have cloned pigs. This raises hopes that genetically engineered organs from pigs may one day be used in humans. Dr. Michael Lairmore addresses the concern that retroviruses in pig cells may be transferred to human cells. While concerns exist, in the future using these organs may be a life or death decision for the patient.
