Chinese scientists discovered: skin-secreting slime of giant salamanders (Chinese giant salamanders) can be used as surgical glue with high elastic properties. It helps heal wounds. Especially it is suitable for long healing wounds of diabetics.

According to The Daily Mail, when using surgical glue, doctors found some patients allergic to adhesives and glue components also slowed the healing process. This makes them unsuitable for diabetics.


Recently, Chinese scientists have noticed the giant salamander (Chinese giant salamanders). When injured, they secrete protein-rich mucus from the skin sticking together. This secretion also improves the elasticity of the skin, narrowing the scar tissue.

Experts have collected mucus from salmon to dry into powder. Then add water and apply it to the pig skin that is damaged in laboratory conditions. As a result, this product is more adherent than surgical glue and has a particularly elastic property of natural glue.

Compared with cyanoacrylate chemical glue, salivary mucus does not cause side effects such as skin irritation and flu-like symptoms.
The researchers also tested the mucus on damaged mouse skin. As a result, the skin wounds quickly and almost without scar tissue and inflammation.
