    α1,3-galactosyltransferase-knockout pig hearts that express human CD46 and human thrombomodulin require non-ischaemic preservation with continuous perfusion and post-transplantation growth control to ensure long-term orthotopic function of the xenograft in baboons.

    Magnetic materials can host a range of structures called spin textures. Two such textures — a meron and an antimeron — have been observed experimentally for the first time, in a material known as a chiral magnet.
