Both stories report a huge breakthrough in regards to living one’s life post-transplant. How to lead a normal, healthy life, without the risk of rejection and without anti-rejection drugs?

Yes, as one of the articles point out, this discovery doesn’t solve the problem of the shortage of organ donation. But it does bode well for a truly normal and healthy life, for those who do get an organ transplant.
This is good news for everybody.
