METHODS: By transplanting liver xenografts from α1,3-galactosyltransferase gene-knockout (GalT-KO) miniature swine donors into baboons as auxiliary organs, leaving the native liver in place, we provided the full spectrum of primate clotting factors and allowed in vivo mixing of porcine and primate coagulation systems.
