Italian scientists say that the time when it will be possible to carry out the transplantation of the whole body, is not far off. Technically it would be possible in a few years, but the main problem would be the ethical side of the issue.
Neurosurgeon from the Italian city of Turin Sergio Kanavero states that transplant operations in all of the human body can become a reality within the next two years, writes The Guardian.

The scientist intends to begin experiments in this field in June 2015. He says that science is ready for operations at this level. And transplantation of the whole body, or the implantation of the head to the body, looks quite plausible. Kanavero sure it will be a breakthrough in the treatment and fatal diseases.

In this case, the surgeon suggests that the experiment will not have a lot of technical problems, but the ethical side of the issue is likely to cause resonance in the society.

"If society does not want it, I will not do it. However, if people do not want this to United States or Europe, it does not mean that the experiments can not be held in any other place. I'm trying to deal with it the best way. But if you want to go to the Moon, it is important for people to follow you, "- said Sergio Kanavero.

As for the transplant procedure itself, the scientist explained that neurosurgeons still do not know how to connect the spinal cord with nerve endings, so that the body began to perceive the body and a new head as a whole. As soon as this issue will be resolved, it will be possible and recovery of paralyzed patients.

Kanavero idea is to cool the body and head before the operation itself, the cells of living tissue is not lost during transplantation. Then, according to his theory, the nerve endings of the two parts to be connected by means of polyethylene glycol, which will serve as a kind of bridge to the moment when the tissue will grow together. Here and to work hard, because so far no one has yet managed to bring the experiment to the end.

The scientist also said that, perhaps, before the operation and the body and the head will need to enter into a coma, and postoperative recovery may take a year. And it may take a long time to the point where people will be able to fully move again and to feel after such a transplant.
