Growth of porcine kidneys in their native and xenograft environment.
The increased survival of hDAF pig-to-primate renal xenografts for up to two months has afforded the opportunity to study physiological aspects such as organ growth. Experimental evidence exists of species restriction of the activity of growth hormone, although growth itself is also controlled by a number of other endocrine, paracrine and autocrine substances. This study consisted of four parts: (1) measurement of pig kidney size according to pig body weight; (2) measurement of pig kidney siz...Expand abstract
