A New York University student has invented a medical gel that could make conventional bandages obselete.

20-year-old Joe Landolina maintains that his remarkable Veti-Gel is capable of closing even the most heavily bleeding wounds almost instantly and even works with internal bleeding during surgical procedures. If the gel turns out to be as effective as he claims then it could revolutionize medicine. Landolina is studying for a BSc in biomolecular and chemical engineering while at the same time pursuing a masterís in biomedical engineering.

"Thereís really no way to quickly stop bleeding except to hold lots of gauze on a wound," he said. "I thought if you could pour this gel into a wound, it would solidify and stop the bleeding."

"The precocious entrepreneur first honed his scientific chops working at his grandparentsí winery, Baldwin Vineyards, in upstate Pine Bush."

Oh ****, someone invented something practical! Give this man some armed protection quick! It'll never pass through the FDA, they need people to be hurt/sick.

J&J make far too much off the sale of gauze to ever let third hit the market...

Ironic how the caption has soldiers. Why does everything have to be associated with war? I am sure the army and navy would be the first to rush to use it if they can grab their greedy little hands on the product.

I should hope so. I can't imagine a more appropriate venue for this type of product than at war. It could help save the lives of our military personnel. That doesn't seem greedy to me. Greedy would be simply putting it in the market and charging an exaggerated amount so that people who need it, like the military at war, won't be able to use it.

I just hope those EMOs don't get their hands on a batch of it
