Researchers Synthesize Platelet-Like Nanoparticles that Can Do more than Clot Blood

Researchers Synthesize Platelet-Like Nanoparticles that Can Do more than Clot Blood

Stanching the free flow of blood from an injury remains a holy grail of clinical medicine. Controlling blood flow is a primary concern and first line of defense for patients and medical staff in many situations, from traumatic injury to illness to surgery. If control is not established within the first few minutes of a hemorrhage, further treatment and healing are impossible. [More]
