i hope there is a medical type out there who can help me with thisquestion. years ago someone told me that chimps can accept human blood transfusions. this was tried, and worked. true?

so, can humans accept transfusions from chimps? has it been tried? if blood, can we get a transplant of other organs? how about an entire body? i saw an article that a doctor had switched the heads of two monkeys and they both lived. quadraplegic of course, but they lived.

if one had a bad disease such as emphasema, and one did not believe in cryonics, but wanted desperately to live, could one have one's head transplanted onto the body of a chimp? spike
