South Korean scientists said yesterday they had cloned a piglet whose organs were genetically modified to make them more suitable for human transplants.

Lead scientist Lim Gio-bin said the cloned piglet, born on April 3, had been genetically altered to lack the “alpha-gal” gene that triggers tissue rejection.

He said his government-sponsored team, involving scientists from four universities and two research institutes, used stem cells of smaller-than-normal pigs to clone “mini-pigs” with modified genes.
