barb that catches tissue on removal, potentially you could create something with just easy insertion, without the adhesion," says James Ankrum, a graduate student in HST and an author of the paper.

Langer and Karp introduced the concept of gecko-inspired medical bandages in 2008; however, "these require a reactive glue to adhere to wet tissues, while porcupine-quill-inspired adhesives attach to tissues beautifully without requiring the use of reactive chemistry," Karp says. "They are extremely versatile and potentially universal in their application."
