New Nanoparticle Study Could Eventually Help Reduce Recurrent Heart Attacks

This week, researchers announced that they've potentially found a way to use nanoparticles to help decrease the risk of a second heart attack or stroke. By creating a synthetic version of a high-density lipoprotein, researchers are able to use nanoparticles as a vehicle to transport molecules that would normally be harder to move inside the body.  

This study helped decrease inflammation when tested on mice, something that has always been a big risk factor after a heart attack. How could this new method help to advance other types of cardiovascular treatment?
