Technology restores cell, organ function in pigs after death

Within minutes of the final heartbeat, a cascade of biochemical events triggered by a lack of blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients begins to destroy a body’s cells and organs. A team of scientists has found this massive and permanent cellular failure doesn’t have to happen so quickly. Using a new technology they developed — which delivers a specially designed cell-protective fluid to organs and tissues — the researchers restored blood circulation and other cellular functions in pigs a full hour after their deaths.
