College student invents gel that halts bleeding

Joe Landolina may have invented a cure for bleeding. He claims that his creation, a substance called Veti-Gel, jump-starts the clotting and healing process so quickly that even wounds to internal organs or major arteries are able to close up instantaneously. And Joe has accomplished all this by his third year of college at NYU.

"It instantly tells the body, 'OK, stop the bleeding,' but also it starts the healing process," said Landolina.

"If testing bears out, the foam technology could affect up to 50 percent of potentially survivable battlefield wounds," said Brian Holloway, DARPA program manager.

The Pentagon agency has awarded $15.5 million to Arsenal Medical, Inc. to continue developing the medical foam after the success of the preclinical testing. That funding comes through the DARPA Wound Stasis program that began in 2010.


At least our tax dollars do go to some good causes.
