S. Korea develops gene-altered pig with better chance for organ transplant
SEOUL, Sept. 30 (Yonhap) -- South Korean scientists have created a genetically modified pig with a higher chance of providing a successful animal-to-human organ transplant, a state institute said Thursday.

The country developed its first engineered pig, Xeno, last year by removing the alpha-1, 3 galactosyltransferase that causes rejection of transplanted organs in human bodies.
