Chinese scientists have ‘successfully’ performed the world’s first liver xenotransplantation surgery for humans

Chinese scientists have “successfully” transplanted a gene-edited pig liver into a 71-year-old patient with massive right lobe liver cancer, official media reported on Saturday, calling it the first medical procedure of its kind.

This is the world’s first liver xenotransplantation surgery for a living human and will be “one of the most significant breakthroughs in medicine,” the Global Times reported, citing a statement from the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University.

The surgery was carried out by Professor Sun Beicheng’s team at the First Affiliated Hospital on May 17.

Seven days after surgery, the patient can move freely without acute or hyperacute rejection reactions. There were no abnormalities in the coagulation system, and liver function had returned to normal.

During surgery, the tumor in the patient’s right heart was resected. It has been confirmed that the remaining left lobe of the liver is insufficient to meet the functional needs of the patient’s liver.

The scientists transplanted a liver from a gene-edited pig into the patient’s right liver fossa. The operation went well, and bile secretion began immediately.
