Scientists find jellyfish could give humans new skin
from Medical Daily
Jellyfish may soon help improve how people heal their wounds. Researchers in Mexico discovered that the animals could help create a new scaffold for repairing human skin. The findings, published in the journal Materials Science and Engineering, suggest that abundant jellyfish species called Cassiopea andromeda, which is part of the “upside-down jellyfish” family, have special tissues that can also be used on humans. The jellyfish appeared to have structures similar to that found in human skin tissue.
