Travolta Shrugged


Great science news from France, where the pioneering face transplant subject Isabelle Dinoire has healed beyond expectations.

Professor Devauchelle, from the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Amiens, France, told AFP news agency: "Aesthetically, the transplant has fitted in very well with the shape of her face. People who hadn't seen her before her accident now recognise her, which is very interesting.

"When she is in a crowd, she doesn't stick out as 'the transplant patient', and this is important.

Nick Gillespie noted the first stage of Dinoire's progress back in February.
