Yakutia creates sturgeon-based glue to retire surgical sutures

12 Dec '12
North-East Federal University (NEFU) in the Republic of Yakutia, a vast ethnic region in Russiaís Far East, announced earlier this month that its researchers have created and are now improving next gen medical bioglue based on the sturgeonís swim bladder. The invention may make surgical sutures redundant.

The new substance, being developed by the universityís medical institute and biologic and geography department, is expected to enable the healing of skin and no-suture regeneration of post-surgery wounds on liver, kidneys, spleen, lungs, and other organs.

ďExperiments have shown that the bioglue is not cytotoxic [causes no malignant growth] and doesnít trigger allergy or inflammations. Clinical trials are ahead, and in future, the innovation can provide a basis for drugs. At the current stage, following in-vivo animal tests, we have good results,Ē the university says.
