Wow -- are artificial platelets in our future?

Sure, it's only a mouse model, but how wonderful if these results could be replicated in humans.

This would be amazing. Not only for those of us easy bleeders, but my best friend has a blood clotting disorder, and would be amazing for her as well! Because of its many applications, it's very likely he will get funding for his grants. Once they can reproduce the results in mouse models, they will move on to clinical trials. So maybe we will be able to see this IRL in <10 years hopefully! Hate how long clinical trials take, but it's important considering the large number of people who would receive this treatment to make sure there aren't any really bad long term consequences.

I am pleased to know that more research is taking place!
