The porcine endogenous retrovirus (PERV) isn't the only potentially dangerous microbe that pigs carry, but it poses a particular risk: It may be a permanent fixture of pig tissue.
Recent research by scientists at Glasgow University centred on Porcine Endogenous Retrovirus, which appeared capable of infecting human cells in laboratory tests.
Absence of replication of porcine endogenous retrovirus and porcine lymphotropic herpesvirus type 1 with prolonged pig cell microchimerism after pig-to-baboon xenotransplantation.
Porcine endogenous retrovirus, or PERV, is perhaps the most worrisome of these viruses.
The biggest worry is the Porcine Endogenous Retrovirus (PERV), which in the laboratory appears to be capable of infecting human cells.
