Blood clot testing breakthrough

30th November 2010

Scientists at the universities of Leicester and Cambridge have found a way of identifying which people could be in danger of suffering dangerous blood clots.

Professor William Ouwehand from the University of Cambridge said: "This type of study will help us to unravel the complex question of why some people have a higher risk of a heart attack than others. One day this type of research may lead to a new generation of drugs that can be used to reduce the risk of this devastating disease."
