New drug targets clots: A potential treatment for heart attack and stroke prevention

Monash researchers have developed a drug that can be potentially given as a preventative against heart attack. The drug—which has been studied in human cells and animal models—literally blocks the minute changes in blood flow that preempts a heart attack and acts on the platelets preventing the platelet-triggered clot before it can kill or cause damage.
