In humans, excessive bleeding during civilian accidents, and surgery account for 40% of the mortality worldwide. Hence, the development of biocompatible hemostatic materials useful for rapid hemorrhage control has become a fundamental research problem in the biomedicine community. In this study, we prepared biocompatible gelatin-tannic acid-κ-carrageenan (GTC) microparticles using a facile Tween 80 stabilized water-in-oil (W/O) emulsion method for rapid hemostasis. Read More
