Stop the Bleeding Now!
Save the victims of stab wounds
Stab wounds victims can bleed to death unless the bleeding is stopped quickly. Support this new invention and save the lives of innocent victims.
Until now the only blood stopping solutions are either too weak or so strong that they cause life threatening blood clots. Victims of stabbing often die either from uncontrolled bleeding or from blood clots caused by anti-bleeding technologies.
All of that can now change with the discovery that Gallium – a rare mineral – stops the bleeding from wounds without causing blood clots.
Gallium is a rare mineral discovered in 1875, and primary used in the field of electronics. It has many medicinal effects and has been used for many years as an FDA approved treatment for hypercalcemia (due to bone breakdown) in cancer patients.
Israeli scientist, Moshe Rogosnitzky discovered that gallium, currently used to stop bone loss in cancer patients, in liquid form (known as gallium nitrate) can rapidly halt bleeding from wounds and speed up the healing. The first report was published in 2011.
Gallium works by inducing “flocculation” of the clotting protein in blood known as fibrinogen. This results in external clot formation. In stark contrast to other treatments for bleeding wounds, gallium does not induce clotting mechanisms in the blood. This avoids the highest risk of existing technologies that run the risk of causing internal blood clots. This novel mechanism was discovered at University of Lille in France, and published in 2013 in BioMetals.
The use of gallium for stopping bleeding from wounds provides additional benefits. Extensive research has shown that gallium is a very powerful anti-infective agent. At the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York it was discovered that gallium speeds the healing of wounds.
Why your support is needed
The process of bringing gallium to market for stopping blood loss from wounds, involves the following steps:
- Establishing the best delivery mechanism.
- Comparative efficacy trial with other technologies for stopping bleeding.
- Filing for medical advice approval status with the relevant health authorities
Blood loss remains the leading cause of death from stab wounds and other external injuries. It is hoped that gallium will significantly reduce the mortality rate by providing an effective and safe answer for blood loss from wounds.
You can help save the lives of innocent victims of stabbings, by funding the clinical development and availability of gallium. Our goal is to place gallium in every first aid kit and every ambulance, ensuring that no stabbing victim loses their chance to survive.
