Doctors also harness the "clot busting" abilities of plasmin to treat patients who suffer heart attack or stroke. Now, a study published by Cell Press on March 8th in the journal Cell Reports provides remarkable...

2011-11-24 06:00:51

The body contains a system that helps break down blood clots before they can damage the heart, called the fibrinolytic system. This system “sprays” an enzyme on the clot before it can stop blood flow to the heart, causing a heart attack. This system can be...
