Imutran, a Cambridge-based biotech
company, reached great heights.
Imutran, set up in 1984, has bred
trangenic human pigs containing a
human protein that regulates part of
the immune resonse. Hearts from these
pigs have been transplanted in monkeys with moderate success. Human trials are to begin shortly.
