Researchers develop 'natural bandages'

Abstract:
With the same compound the body uses to clot blood, scientists at Virginia Commonwealth University have created a nano-fiber mat that could eventually become a "natural bandage." Spun from strands of fibrinogen 1,000 times thinner than a human hair, the fabric could be placed on a wound and never taken off ? minimizing blood loss and encouraging the natural healing process.
