According to The Province, Japanese scientists believe that by next year it will be possible to grow human organs in animals and then harvest them for transplant.
A panel of scientists and legal experts appointed by the government has drawn up a recommendation that will form the basis of new guidelines for Japans world-leading embryonic research.
There is widespread support in Japan for research that has raised red flags in other countries. Scientists plan to introduce a human stem cell into the embryo of an animal most likely a pig to create what is termed a chimeric embryo that can be implanted into an animals womb.
That will then grow into a perfect human organ, a kidney or even a heart, as the host animal matures.
When the adult creature is slaughtered, the organ will then be harvested and transplanted into a human with a malfunctioning organ.
