Pouring a bandage onto a bleeding wound seems like medicine from science fiction, but…
MIT’s remarkable new peptide compound rapidly forms a transparent, nanofiber-rich meshwork that stops bleeding instantly, allows wounds to begin healing quickly, promotes tissue regeneration, and breaks down harmlessly within the body.
Surgery can be performed through it, enabling faster, more accurate, and safer operations. It does not require removal, because its breakdown products can be used by cells in the healing process.
…this disruptive technology is real.
