US Special Forces funds drug that can put soldiers injured on the battlefield into HIBERNATION until they can be treated

  • US Special Forces working with James Cook University in Australia
  • Drug aims to raise the heart and blood pressure into a 'survival window' low enough to reduce blood loss, but high enough to prevent brain injury
  • Human trials expected to begin within a year 

US Special Forces soldiers injured on the battlefield could soon be put into 'hibernation' until they can be moved to safety, it has been revealed. 

The US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is providing $550,000 to fund a radical new drug being developed by Australian scientists.

It can put people into a 'survival window' low enough to reduce blood loss, but high enough to prevent brain injury.

Experts say the drug therapy they're working on may be the first big advance in treating battlefield casualties since the Vietnam War.
