Blood clot study points to new drug target

Arterial thrombosis – blood clot in an artery – can lead to several serious conditions including heart attack and stroke, and is the most common cause of death and disability in Australia.

Anti-blood clotting breakthrough could advance heart attack and stroke patient outcomes

A designer molecule developed by Monash University researchers opens the way for a powerful new treatment targeting life-threatening blood clots that cause heart attack or stroke – significantly reducing the risk of permanent brain damage or

Clot-busting enzymes are working two jobs

The body’s blood clot-busting enzymes are much busier than previously imagined, with new research showing that they also dispose of every cell that dies prematurely from disease or trauma. In...
