Iranian researchers have succeeded in creating a new type of wound dressing through applying nanotechnology which can stop bleeding.

According to an ISCA report, Tayebbeh Zahrabi, head of the research team, stated that peptide nanofibers have been used for the first time in this product “Nano dressing” which could stop bleeding, “This led to the production of a product capable of hemostasis (cessation of bleeding) with very high biocompatibility.”

As she said, biotechnology and nanotechnology have been applied to the production, “In fact, the main dressing material, which is a peptide piece, was designed by the help of biotechnology know-how, and peptide nanofibers have been made by means of nanotechnology."

Zahrabi also added that "This product can be used as a homeostasis by surgeons and orthopedic specialists. It can also be used by physicians and staff at emergency medical centers, hospital emergencies, and government facilities such as the Red Crescent, the Armed Forces, and the general public (as an important part of the first aid kit)."

In a relevant development earlier this month, Iranian researchers at the Faculty of Textile Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology in cooperation with the University of Granada in Spain succeeded in modifying cellulosic textiles to produce wound dressings with antimicrobial and anti-cancer properties, FNA reports.
