Case Western Reserve University researchers' synthetic platelets may help halt blood loss

Abstract:
A Case Western Reserve University biomedical engineer and her former doctoral student have developed synthetic platelets that may help slow internal bleeding, saving lives after injury on the battlefield or other serious trauma.

Using a rat model, Erin Lavik, professor of biomedical engineering at Case, and James Bertram, who is now a fellow at the Food and Drug Administration, showed that the injected synthetic platelets stopped internal bleeding after an injury 23 percent faster than in untreated rats.

Rats injected with the platelets prior to injury stopped bleeding in half the time of the untreated animals.
