World’s first human head transplant a success, controversial professor claims

The world’s first human head transplant has been carried out on a corpse in China, according to a controversial Italian doctor who said Friday that scientists are now ready to perform the surgery on a living person.

Professor Sergio Canavero, chief of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, said the operation was carried out by a team led by Dr. Xiaoping Ren, who last year successfully grafted a head onto a monkey’s body.

“The first human transplant on human cadavers has been done. A full head swap between brain-dead organ donors is the next stage,” Canavero said at a press conference in Vienna, the Telegraph reported.

“And that is the final step for the formal head transplant for a medical condition which is imminent,” said Canavero, who has gained a mix of fame and notoriety for his Frankenstein-like pursuits.

Canavero said the successful transplant by the team at Harbin Medical University shows that his techniques for reconnecting the spine, nerves and blood vessels to allow two bodies to live together will work.

He didn’t appear to provide any concrete proof for his claim about the operation in China, but said it would be made available in the coming days.

Despite his claims of having successfully carried out the surgery on both rats and monkeys ahead of a human transplant, medical experts have warned that the first patient would experience terrible suffering while adjusting to his or her new body.

Canavero said a live operation would take place in China because his efforts to get backing for the project were dismissed by the medical communities in the US and Europe, according to USA Today.

“The Americans did not understand,” Canavero said Friday as he discussed the surgery, which also raises profound biomedical ethical questions.

“Chinese President Xi Jinping wants to restore China back to greatness and he wants to make it the sole superpower in the world and I believe he is doing it,” he said.

Canavero did not provide the identity of the recipient (head) or the donor (body) — who will be a brain-dead patient who is otherwise healthy — for a live operation.

In April 2105, a Russian man suffering from a fatal muscle-wasting disease volunteered for the procedure.

Valery Spiridinov, 33, admitted being scared to have his head frozen and then grafted onto a new donor body, but said he was prepared to sacrifice his life for science.

    The Russian patient, will only be able to receive a new body in Russia, which will require a commitment from Russian authorities. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/06e9b275a99c2b8dfb6522a810903991187314e694cdbc14933532054feb3786.jpg Valery Spriridonov

      “Tel Aviv Has Covert Ties with Arab States, Including Saudi Arabia: Israeli Minister Alwaght- Israel has covert contacts with Saudi Arabia, the regime’s Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz revealed on Sunday.
      In an interview on Army Radio, Steinitz said Tel Aviv has “partly covert” ties with many Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia.

      He added that Saudi Arabia was the side that was interested in hiding its ties with Israel and Tel Aviv had no problem with this”.

      A report published earlier in June revealed that Saudi Arabia and the Israeli regime were in clandestine talks to establish official economic relations for the first time since the entity was created on the Palestinian territories some 69 years ago.

      The Times, citing unnamed Arab and American sources, said in a report on June 17 that forming economic connections between to two, which would be gradual and step by step, could begin by allowing Israeli companies to open shops in the Arab kingdom, or granting El Al Israel Airlines Ltd. permission to fly over Saudi airspace.”http://alwaght.com/en/news/117365

    On Wednesday, February 28, researchers from the Shaarei Tzedek
    Hospital, the Institute of Nanotechnology and Bar-Ilan University
    reported on the work on a new technology of vision correction, which,
    perhaps, will save mankind from glasses.
    At
    a two-day seminar held at the Shaarei Tzedek, Dr. David Smadzha, said
    that during the pig experiment, nanocapples showed high efficacy in
    combating myopia and hyperopia.
    The researcher also said that the drops created with the help of nanotechnology may replace multifocal lenses.
    In
    order to “adjust” the work of nanoparticles for themselves, the patient
    does not need to visit an optometrist, it will be enough to have a
    special application on the mobile phone. The lecturer did not say how often he would have to “dig in” drops.
    Clinical studies on humans should begin at the end of 2018

    A young Syrian woman crossed the Syrian-Israeli border to seek help from Israeli doctors

    Some time ago she, being pregnant, came to a consultation with her doctor. The
    doctor warned her that there were practically no specialists at home
    who could do the operation necessary to preserve her life and the life
    of her child. He offered the woman to try his luck in the central clinic of
    Damascus, but because of the fighting she was unable to get to the
    capital of Syria.

    Two
    weeks before the expected date of birth, the woman arrived at the
    border, where the participants of the “Good Neighborhood” project took
    her to Israel. Recall, in the framework of this project, the IDF assists the civilian population of the Syrian part of the Golan Heights.

    So
    the woman was in the Haifa clinic Rambam, where Professor Ido Solt, a
    high-risk pregnancy specialist, and Dr. Igor Kogan, an angioplasty
    specialist, did everything to prevent uterine bleeding. After this, the woman was cesarean section, as a result of which a healthy boy appeared.

    The
    young woman expressed gratitude to the doctors and all the staff of the
    hospital “Rambam”, regretting only that all this time she did not have
    the opportunity to inform her husband about the birth of her son
