Bacterin bioactive coatings will help save soldiers

Bacterin to Receive $1.4 Million From Defense Appropriation: The company will develop ways to “add bioactive coatings to temporary orthopedic fixation devices used to treat battlefield wounds. Anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, anti-coagulant, or pain relief properties embedded in a bioactive coating could significantly reduce the high rate of infection.” They expect to be able to reduce the rate at which soldiers lose limbs–and even their lives–because of inadequate treatments that are applied on the battlefield to hold until the victim gets to a military hospital (70% of wounds get infected).

Thank you. If we must wage war, the women would really appreciate it if you could keep the men in one piece.
