The lifesaving goo is an artificial version of something called the extracellular matrix, which makes up the connective tissue that helps hold animal bodies together.

"We use plant-derived versions of the polymers that make up your skin," the whiz kid said. "If they go into a wound, they build on existing polymers. It's like it tells your body to stop bleeding." 

 

Landolina and Miller will next test the gel on larger living animals, like pigs and sheep, under the supervision of Dr. Herbert Dardik, a cardiovascular surgeon at Englewood (NJ) Hospital.


 

 

That is amazing. This could be used on the battlefield to save numerous casualties.. Paramedics and emergency rooms could save so many lives. I hope this product works good on humans.
