U.S. Researchers Test Pig-to-Human Transplant in Donated Body
Researchers on Thursday reported the latest in a surprising string of experiments in the quest to save human lives with organs from genetically modified pigs. This time around, surgeons in Alabama transplanted a pig’s kidneys into a brain-dead man—a step-by-step rehearsal for an operation they hope to try in living patients possibly later this year. “The organ shortage is in fact an unmitigated crisis and we’ve never had a real solution to it,” said Dr. Jayme Locke of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, who led the newest study and aims to begin a clinical trial of pig kidney transplants....

Surgeons Transplant Pig Heart Into Human Patient For the First Time Ever
In a medical first, doctors transplanted a pig heart into a patient in a last-ditch effort to save his life and a Maryland hospital said Monday that he’s doing well three days after the highly experimental surgery. While it’s too soon to know if the operation really will work, it marks a step in the decades-long quest to one day use animal organs for life-saving transplants. Doctors at the University of Maryland Medical Center say the transplant showed that a heart from a genetically modified animal can function in the human body without immediate rejection.

Justice itself is a very elusive ethical principle, let alone defining justice during a pandemic that has been extremely difficult to navigate for a multitude of reasons. The COVID-19 pandemic is still testing our very limits of what it means to be “just” clinicians, “just” individuals, and “just” members of society. We often find ourselves trying to balance what is just with what is right clinically for our patients while also respecting the staff at the facilities where we work. We must set aside our own cultural, religious, and individual beliefs of what justice is and look at each si...
