Title = a health-economic analysis of porcine islet xenotransplantation, abstract = background: islet cell transplantation is a promising treatment for type 1 diabetes to overcome the shortage of deceased human pancreas donors, porcine islet cell xenotransplantation is being developed as an alternative to allotransplantation. Cross-species transplantation (xenotransplantation) offers the prospect of an unlimited supply of organs and cells for clinical transplantation, thus resolving the critical shortage of human tissues that currently prohibits a majority of patients on the waiting list from receiving transplants.
This will not only reduce the problems of organ shortage but will open a new chapter in xenotransplantation from transgenic animals in the near future this article discusses the potential benefits of using transgenic animals as a practical solution to human organ transplant.

Xenotransplantation, a subject of study and experimentation for almost a century, started to receive serious attention from the scientific community in the 1960s as a result of strides made in human-to-human transplantation. It is equally possible that many eligible recipients may be denied having a trial of xenotransplantation by doctors who believe that there is an unfavourable risk-benefit ratio the limited long-term data on outcomes of xenotransplants thus renders ethical analysis difficult.
