Scientists revived pig cells an hour after they died, a potential breakthrough in organ transplantation

The pigs had already been dead for an hour, and yet their heart, brain, and liver cells were still kicking.

Thanks to a new system called OrganEx, scientists can now preserve the dying organs of recently deceased people pigs alive by connecting the animals to a system of pumps, filters and circulating fluids. This procedure does not restore animals brain operate or remove the pigs from the great beyond; rather, it ensures the maintenance of certain cellular functions in the vital organs of animals.
