Spanish scientists create human-monkey chimera in China

Researchers led by Spanish scientist Juan Carlos Izpisúa have created for the first time a human-monkey hybrid in a laboratory in China – an important step towards using animals for human organ transplants, project collaborator Estrella Núñez confirmed to EL PAÍS.

The team, made up of members of the Salk Institute in the United States and the Murcia Catholic University (UCAM) in Spain, genetically modified monkey embryos to deactivate genes that are essential to the formation of organs. The scientists then injected human stem cells, which are capable of creating any type of tissue, into the embryo. The product of this work is a monkey with human cells that has not been born, because researchers stopped the process. The experiment took place in China to avoid legal issues


I, for one, welcome our monkey-human overlords.

I wonder if the lack of ethical oversight will prove a boon to medical science in China. They're probably doing all sorts of experimentation on death row prisoners.

Not so much death row prisoners. The problem with them is that they're on record.
Plenty of people there to "disappear" though.

No, they're not. Public announcements of death sentences and executions are the exception rather than the norm. The exact numbers are considered to be state secrets. Throw in tight controls on information, and the fact that the executions themselves are carried out behind closed doors, and it would be easy to force someone into medical experimentation without anyone knowing. As far as family or fellow inmates are concerned, they were taken away and executed, and their remains disposed of.

China is the only developed country on earth with no waiting list for organ transplants.

The ones in China aren't been kept alive long enough to grow organs. In Japan they're going to try and grow mice-human organs.

Golly, I suppose those folks in Old Cathay are just so civic minded they don't mind handing them over once they're gone.
