Re: [IP] pig transplants?


Pancreas transplants have come a long way and are about 90% successful.  
Trouble is there are only about 5,000 available pancreases/year and you have 
to take powerful immunosuppressant drugs.  For more info check out the 
Insulin-Free World foundation (www.insulin-free.org)  Deb Butterfield, 
Executive Dir., had a pancreas-kidney transplant about 6-7 years and is 
completely non-diabetic and doing fine.
