Nanoparticles, nanomedicine, nanoglue techniques – sounds like science-fiction? Actually, it's science reality as regenerative medicine research makes another breakthrough.

French researchers have innovated a liquid solution of silica nanoparticles that ‘glues’ wounds shut in a matter of seconds and leaves no scars when it heals.

Thanks to the progress of nanomedicine, stitches could soon become a thing of the past, giving way to nanoglue. Effective and easy to use, the revolutionary solution of silica nanoparticles is capable of closing deep wounds in a matter of seconds.

The efficacy of the innovative technique has now been demonstrated on live human subjects, as can be seen in the YouTube video at the bottom of the article. Another video contains extra footage comparing the traditional suture with the nanoglue technique. Be warned: If you're squeamish, there's a scalpel involved.
