In 2010, Jerome Amon for the first time received a new face, which formerly belonged to 63-year-old man. But five years later, after the common cold the effect of immunosuppressants weakened, then the body began to reject the item.

It should be noted that everything in the world held only about 40 transplants of the face. This is a very complicated and risky procedure, guarantees the success of which no one can give.
