The first successful transplantation of pig pollen into humans in the United States of America

Surgeons in the US have successfully transplanted pollen from a genetically modified pig into a living patient for the first time.

This operation was performed on a 62-year-old black man who suffered from severe pollen deficiency.

Dr. Tatsuo Kawai, a member of the surgical team, hopes that this procedure will be a lifeline for millions of people suffering from pollen deficiency.

Pig pollen has been transplanted into brain-dead patients before, but this time Richard Slimane is the first living person to undergo the procedure. Doctors say that his condition is good and they hope that he will be discharged from the hospital soon.
