Ghost Heart Shows Medical Promise

ghost heart

This is the cellular matrix of a pig heart with all of the material removed that would cause anothe body to recognize it as a foreign organ. If the cells from the recipient of such a heart could be implanted in the matrix, you could have a new heart that your body would accept as its own tissue: a transplant organ with none of the rejection issues.

Amazing!
