Australian scientists discover a new way to reduce the damage caused by heart attack

Date posted: 20 January 2014

Scientists at the University of Sydney have found that a simple injection could reduce the damage caused by heart attack, and could also help people suffering from multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease.

The scientists believe that an injection of synthetic microparticles during the 24 hours following a heart attack could halve the amount of post heart attack damage caused by inflammatory white blood cells.
