A single xenograft operation costs over pounds 150,000 now, taking funds away from real public health initiatives. The millions wasted on xenotransplants could more usefully be used to encourage human donors to come forward. It would only take another 2,000 donations every year from a population of 56 million. A human organ must give a human-being a better chance of survival and it removes the risk of diseases crossing the species barrier - a horror story waiting to happen.
