A biomedical breakthrough could quicken the clotting process

Researchers at Georgia Tech have engineered “designer” blood clots—artificial platelets that could enhance the body’s natural clotting process and mitigate painful scarring. In animal trials, the platelets reduced clotting time by 30 percent. The clots offer particular potential for battlefront use; an injured soldier could inject the freeze-dried synthetic material on the field, using a device the size of an iPhone.
