Genome edited Pigs approved for Food Use
GalSafe pigs are free of detectable alpha-gal sugar. Tissues and organs from GalSafe pigs could potentially address the issue of immune rejection in patients receiving xenotransplants, as alpha-gal sugar is believed to be a cause of rejection in patients.
Pharmaceutical production from transgenic animals
Basic information on the topic, with easy-to-follow charts and illustrations.
Xenotransplantation from transgenic animals
CRISPR technology may enable the use of pig organs and tissues to save lives.
Conservation of the Environment
EnviropigTM – biotech pigs that use plant phosphorus more efficiently. China has subsequently developed two lines of transgenic pigs that express microbial enzymes in their saliva to increase feed use efficiency.
