Injection halves effects of a heart attack or stroke

19th April 2011

Scientists at Leicester University have developed an injection which could decrease the effects of heart attack or stroke by more than half.

Professor Wilhelm Schwaeble, an immunologist who worked on the research said: "This is potentially the biggest breakthrough in the treatment of heart attacks and strokes ever. We could not believe what we saw and nor could the cardiologists. What is amazing is that the drug can be given so long after the attack. Even the slowest ambulance journey in the world is going to get you to hospital within nine hours."
