Researchers Develop New 'Miracle Superglue' That Can Heal Potentially Fatal Wounds in Second


The powerful bio-gel has the capacity to prevent heart patients from bleeding out on operating tables; dramatically reduce patient recovery time; and save the lives of those injured in warzones and serious accidents.

When activated by UV (ultraviolet) light, the "bio-glue" immediately forms a complete seal, even on wet tissue, without the need for staples or stitches.

In experiments, researchers managed to close up incisions and holes up to 6 millimeters wide in the blood vessels and organs of pigs – all in just 20 seconds.
