    That is amazing!! This could change the translplant process, it would be nice for people to be able to get the organs that they need and not be on a "list".

    Oh my God this is great to not depend on some ones death to help with giving life.

    How promising for people like me who need a heart transplant, but have to wait for months or years for a donor organ. I encourage the researchers to continue this vital work. Porcine valves already help humans, and I believe this research, as the doctor says, has potential to save millions of lives. Thank you!

    This is amazing! Tho the issue of where the cadaver hearts will come from is huge. If so many families do not want to donate the organs of their loved ones when the y are mostly dead, what makes doctors think after the total death of a loved-one will be any different? There is the possibility of pig hearts, (I'm making an educated guess on that one), but then there are animal rights issues. Every new discovery seems to test the moral fibers.

    So do you think they will be able to synthesize the pericardium and inject cells into that at some point eliminating the need for a cadaver heart?

    I am so truly amazed , I am speechless. As a nurse and a diabetic patient with all the long term complications, I see potential life in front of my eyes. Hopefully, before blindness takes over, the research will be available to give me back my sight. Maybe a new pancreas that will totally reverse the Diabetes! The possibilities are endless. Thank God for these people and His knowlege within them.

    This is incredible! A far cry from stem cell research! Can you imagine all of the possible implications this holds for future transplant patients? And first is the heart, but what about other organs? Kidneys and livers next maybe?
