Yes it is true but the aliens are actually us.
I am not a biologist so I can't give you the specifics.
It was mooted at one stage that a person requiring a lung transplant would have their DNA injected in to a pig fetus solely for the purpose of overcoming the problem of rejection. Even though pigs are a long way from us in terms of common ancestors the size of their organs appears to be an attractive feature.
I think the other avenue of exploration centred on the possibility of eliminating the gene in pigs that cause humans to reject pig organs. In other words, the greatest problem when it comes humans receiving pig organs is rejection.
