SCIENTISTS have created eerie zombie dogs

    US scientists have succeeded in reviving the dogs after three hours of clinical death, paving the way for trials on humans within years.
    Pittsburgh's Safar Centre for Resuscitation Research has developed a technique in which subject's veins are drained of blood and filled with an ice-cold salt solution.

    The animals are considered scientifically dead, as they stop breathing and have no heartbeat or brain activity.

    But three hours later, their blood is replaced and the zombie dogs are brought back to life with an electric shock.

    Plans to test the technique on humans should be realised within a year, according to the Safar Centre.

    However rather than sending people to sleep for years, then bringing them back to life to benefit from medical advances, the boffins would be happy to keep people in this state for just a few hours,

    But even this should be enough to save lives such as battlefield casualties and victims of stabbings or gunshot wounds, who have suffered huge blood loss.

    During the procedure blood is replaced with saline solution at a few degrees above zero. The dogs' body temperature drops to only 7C, compared with the usual 37C, inducing a state of hypothermia before death.

    Although the animals are clinically dead, their tissues and organs are perfectly preserved.

    Damaged blood vessels and tissues can then be repaired via surgery. The dogs are brought back to life by returning the blood to their bodies,giving them 100 per cent oxygen and applying electric shocks to restart their hearts.

    Tests show they are perfectly normal, with no brain damage.

    "The results are stunning. I think in 10 years we will be able to prevent death in a certain segment of those using this technology," said one US battlefield doctor.

    Though this is a great scientific achivement ...... It sucks .... Man this is sad ... You dont want me to give the reasons ... All who r posting here know it well ..... The belivers and the non belivers ......

    Hope they dont do it on humans and create X-Men or Universal Soldires..... Its sad......

    as if we are not zombies right now ...

    in fact modern man is closer to being a zombie than a cave man ...

    Talk about Frankenstein.

    Normally Brain Death happens if there is no Oxygen supply to brain for 4 minutes. This is for humans. So they dont even try to ressucciate a person who has been dead for more than 4 minutes. The heart might start functioning but the brain will be dead leaving the person to be a vegetable.

    Anyway this research is sick. Today Zombie Dogs and tomorrow Zombie Humans. Crap. And some as.sholes are funding this s.hit too.

    There's a difference between treating a patient and bringing back dead to life. Zombies, you want zombies.
