Interspecies chimeras as a platform for exogenic organ production and transplantation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


Chronic diseases are associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Therefore, new therapeutic strategies are warranted. Here, we provide a brief review outlining the rationale and feasibility for the generation of intraspecies and interspecies chimeras, which one day may serve as a platform for organ transplantation. These strategies are further associated with consideration of scientific and ethical issues.
