Lab notes: A new way to mend a broken heart
from MedPage Today
A new adhesive that promises to work well in wet places may be just what heart surgeons have been looking for. Current surgical adhesives are toxic, have limited strength and don't work well in wet places, such as the heart. Inspired by insects, slugs, and worms, researchers led by Jeffrey Karp, Ph.D., of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston may have overcome those limitations.
