Scientists have found a way to prevent a second heart attack

Scientists from the clinic mount Sinai found a new way to prevent re-development of myocardial infarction. It's all in the control of inflammation in atherosclerotic plaques. It is their separation often causes terrible cardiovascular disease is thrombosis of vessels of the heart.

Scientists have proposed the use of nanoparticles of high density lipoprotein. On Board they include drugs such as statins. The particle is associated with macrophage and delivered to the plaque, stabilizing it and preventing the risk of separation.

It is proved that statins have a whole range of effects. They reduce the formation of cholesterol in the liver, reduce inflammatory response. After oral administration of statins absorbed only part of the drug. Nanotechnology allows you to assign the treatment of minimal doses that reach their goal.
