US surgeons transplant a PIG heart into a human in world first op

Doctors in Baltimore have transplanted a genetically-modified pig heart into a patient in a last-ditch effort to save his life, in a medical first. Three days later, David Bennett, 57, is said to be recovering and doing well after the nine-hour procedure. Experts say it is too soon to know if the operation really will work, but it marks a step forward in the decades-long quest to one day use animal organs for life-saving transplants. Bennett is breathing on his own without a ventilator, but is still using a Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) machine that helps pump blood throughout his body. Doctors hope to wean him off the device slowly. Doctors at the University of Maryland Medical Center say the transplant showed that a heart from a genetically modified animal can function in the human body without immediate rejection. And this medical first could one day help solve the chronic shortage of organ donations.

Plant scientists have discovered a "breakthrough" herbal recipe that has anti-cancer powers

***EXCLUSIVE*** The key to new cancer treatments could lie in common Mediterranean herbs say scientists who have discovered a 'breakthrough' herbal recipe. The good news is that herbs such as thyme and oregano both have an anti-cancer compound that can suppress tumour development. However adding them to your tomato sauce isn't enough to stop cancers from growing. In fact, the key to unlocking the power of these plants is to amplify the amount of the compound created and use it in drug development.  Researchers at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, made the first steps towards using the compound in pharmaceuticals by mapping out a molecular recipe of the ingredients and steps that would be needed.
