A glue that could save lives

IMG_2408

Australian and American biomedical engineers have developed a stretchy surgical glue that rapidly heals wounds. It’s seen as a breakthrough that has the potential to save lives in emergencies. The injectable glue, MeTro, is based on a naturally occurring protein. It’s applied directly to the wound and then activated with UV light to form a complete seal, eliminating the need for staples or stitches. Its elasticity means it’s designed to work well on shape-changing internal organs like the lungs and heart.
