Self-propelling particles go upstream into wounds to stop bleeding

In a study published in Science Advances, a Canadian group has demonstrated that rapid gas release allows microparticles to propel themselves and their therapeutic cargo upstream into wounds. The team showed delivery by the particles improved the hemostatic effects of thrombin (Factor IIa; F2) in three models of hemorrhage, and suggests
