According to a report in DailyMail, the bio-gel will start repairing the damaged parts of the heart once it reaches the body. Actually, after a heart attack, along with some cracks in the heart, there is also some damage in the blood vessels. By reaching the body, the bio-gel will repair the blood vessels that supply blood to the whole body and the cracks in the heart and bring it back to its original condition.

According to the scientists, they have successfully tested the bio-gel on rats and pigs. Preparations are underway to test it on humans within a year. According to the team of scientists doing research, bio-gel will increase the growth rate of human cells. With this, wounds to the heart and blood vessels can be filled as soon as possible after a heart attack.
