Clots cut with cholesterol drugs17th March 2011
Scientists from the University of Reading say that drugs which can regulate levels of cholesterol in the blood may also reduce the risk of dangerous clots.
Writing in the journal Blood, they reduced the size and stability of blood clots in mice and said the discovery could lead to new drugs. The British Heart Foundation said it was an exciting discovery which could result in more effective treatments. Figures show that some 32,000 people in the UK die after developing a blood clot.
