Report on the announcement by the Applied Developmental Engineering Institute, Meiji University, of its success in producing piglets from cryopreserved embryos of the premium-quality “Tokyo-X” pig breed.

Fertilized embryos, placed in a row inside a hollow fiber membrane used for dialysis, were vitrified using liquid nitrogen instantaneously introduced through small holes in the surface of the membrane. After being preserved in the frozen state for one month, the embryos were transplanted into the uterus of a sow. Of nine piglets born on January 7, eight survived, demonstrating that cryopreservation will enable this breed of pigs with superior-quality meat to be maintained long-term.

Joint research between Meiji University International Cluster for Bio-Resource Research (MICBR) and the Tokyo Metropolitan Agriculture and Forestry Center of the Tokyo Development Foundation for Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries succeeds in producing the first piglets from cryopreserved embryos of the acclaimed “Tokyo-X” pig breed.

Now that the technical difficulties involved in cryopreserving fertile swine embryo have been overcome, semi-permanent preservation of the superior genes of Tokyo-X has become possible.

Report on the success of the Applied Developmental Engineering Institute at Meiji University in producing the world’s first 6th-generation cloned pig.

The gene control methods developed in the process of producing the cloned pig are expected to contribute to the research and development of iPS cells.

Report on methodology developed by Eiji Kobayashi of Jichi Medical University using bioluminescent genes to analyze potential risk of tumorigenesis of iPS cells.

Comparing the patterns of gene expression in mesenchymal stem cells and ES cells, when cell development follows the pattern of mesenchymal stem cell, those cells may be assumed to become iPS cells without the risk of tumorigenesis.

Report on research into organ and tissue regeneration for human transplantation using pigs as the bio-scaffold led by Eiji Kobayashi of Jichi Medical University.

It will still be several decades before organ/tissue regeneration from iPS cells is applied in practice, but high expectations are held for the technology of producing human organs and tissues for transplantation within a few months of injecting human cells into swine embryos.
