An Italian neurosurgeon has claimed to have successfully carried out the world's first head transplant.
In 2015 he made headlines claiming that in two years, he will be able to perform a successful "living" head transplant on a donor body. Like when he claimed to have successfully transplanted a monkey's head past year.
Valery Spiridonov, a Russian tech scientist, reached out to him saying that he was willing to participate.
Canavero gave no evidence of the authenticity of his claims, but said he will provide a proof in the coming days.
Trump criticizes Franken, remains silent on Roy Moore
Trump said during his recently concluded Asia trip that he would have more to say about Moore when he returned home. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Thursday night, despite numerous similar allegations made against him.
Whilst Professor Catherina Becker, from the University of Edinburgh pointed out that the head controlling motor function can not be assessed in a corpse - meaning there is no way of knowing whether it would occur in a living human who undergoes the transplant.
"According to the reports stated that world's first human head transplant" had been "successfully carried out", though clearly that won't really have happened until someone undergoes the procedure and survives it.
Arthur Caplan, director of medical ethics at New York University's Langone Medical Centre, had previously said that the bodies of head transplant patients "would end up being overwhelmed with different pathways and chemistry than they are used to and they'd go crazy". Not only would head and neck tissue, nerve cells, and spinal cords have to be grafted together to create functional units; the patient going through such an extensive procedure would have to stay alive for long enough for it to work and then have to hope that his or her new body doesn't reject the head of a biological stranger.
Professor Canavero claimed that the procedure took place in China because "the Americans did not understand" and wouldn't fund the experiments, according to USA Today.
