There has been quite a lot of discussion about Genetically Modified (GM) organisms related to vegetable products, but I wonder if readers are aware that GM, or transgenic animals are also a subject of study.
Here is a link to an article that describes the production of transgenic hens which can produce eggs containing therapeutic protein based drugs:
“We describe the generation of transgenic chickens that synthesize functional recombinant therapeutic protein specifically in the oviduct of laying hens as a component of egg white.”
Translation: How we bred GM chickens that produce eggs containing therapeutic drugs.
I wonder if people who oppose GM crops also oppose this type of research?
