Chile scientists create tissue regeneration "photosynthetic" skin



Unlike synthetic beads that are already used for treating injuries such as burns or trauma, this tissue can produce oxygen in the affected area by stimulating light, enabling the regenerative process, as explained by one of the project leaders, the molecular biotechnology engineer Tomás Egaña.

When there is a wound, a heart attack or other condition that damages the blood vessels, medical teams must avoid tissue death due to lack of oxygen. Lower oxygenation also affects the survival of a tumor to radiotherapy, for example.

"We have created the first generation of photosynthetic materials that produce and release oxygen with light stimulation, improving tissue oxygenation," said Egaña at a press conference Thursday to present the Hulk project to be called. German "Establishing hyperoxia under mild conditions".
