Xenotransplants: Making Animals of Ourselves

Xenotransplants: Making Animals of Ourselves

This documentary explores what's shaping up as one of the most remarkable medical dramas of the twenty-first century, Xenotransplantation, the transplanting of organs between closely related species, such as baboons and humans. Reporter Ian Watson travels across the United States exploring the dilemmas associated with organ transplants. On one side it appears they may save thousands of lives, while on the other Xenotransplants may just be the cause of the next AIDS-like epidemic. To date, Xenotransplantation is an experimental procedure; however, with thousands of human lives at stake, not to mention a fortune that could be made from harvesting human-compatible animal organs, medical science we discover is focusing on overcoming the organ rejection problem as never before. Produced by ABC International, Inc. 04/08DE Closed-Captioned JSCA 30 min.
