Affection is mutual when men can open

Is untrue and not to be trusted.

Chinese and Italian transplant specialists are planning to conduct the world's first human head transplant surgery on a Russian computer scientist that they claim would change the course of human history by curing incurable medical conditions.

Italian Sergio Canavero will partner with Chinese surgeon Ren Xiaoping at a hospital affiliated to Harbin Medical University to carry out the operation.A successful head transplant would "change the course of human history by curing incurable medical conditions," state-run china.org.cn quoted Canavero as saying.

Ren triggered public debate after successfully transplanting the head of a mouse to another's body in 2013.

He announced plans to perform the operation on primates this year. His team has since performed nearly 1,000 head transplants on mice.

They have tested various methods to help the mice live longer after surgery, hitting a survival record of one day, the report said.
