Health Desk—Nov 26, 2017: A former vice-minister of health dismissed the possibility of clinical trials in China involving a human head transplant. He added that ‘an experiment done in China had drastically violated ethical rules.’

"We will never allow such clinical trials to be carried out in China," Huang Jiefu, chairman of the China National Organ Donation and Transplantation Committee and former vice-minister of health, as per a global report on Friday.

"A live head transplant is technically impossible, and violates Chinese laws and regulations on organ transplants," he said.
