Wow!
 
A research team has created artificial blood and preliminary tests are encouraging.
 
The artificial blood was made of water, salt, albumin and a protein extracted from marine worms. The protein, called hemerthrin, from the marine worms makes the blood stress resistant.
 
The first test results are encouraging because the mice treated with this blood have remained indifferent to the treatment. This is what we want to see; the ultimate goal is not to get rejection reactions from the artificial blood.
 
Radu Silaghi-Dumitrescu, lead researcher on the study comments that, “all the previous attempts to create artificial blood have failed because researchers couldn’t find the right protein to keep the substance immune to stress factors. So far the tests on animals didn’t generate the toxicity other types of protein used so far produced.”
 
The research team says tests will continue until it is proven there is no toxicity before any attempt will be taken to use it on humans.
