MIT Engineers developed Injectable Synthetic Nanoparticles and a Polymer

Published on April 30, 2023
Current Context: Engineers have designed a two-component system that can be injected into the body and help form blood clots at the sites of internal injury.The two components are a nanoparticle and a polymer.
MIT Engineers developed Injectable Synthetic Nanoparticles and a Polymer
  • These materials, which mimic the way that the body naturally forms clots, could offer a way to keep people with severe internal injuries alive until they can reach a hospital.
  • The nanoparticle mimics the action of platelets, the cells that initiate blood clotting, while the polymer mimics the action of fibrinogen, a protein that helps form clots.
  • This technology could have a significant impact in preventing death from blood loss due to traumatic events such as car crashes or combat injuries

Question:

Q.1 What are the two components of the system that can help form blood clots at the sites of internal injury?
a. Platelet and fibrinogen
b. Nanoparticle and polymer
c. Antibody and antigen
d. Enzyme and substrate
