American Heart Association

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – A vaccine may one day be able to replace oral blood thinners to reduce the risk of secondary strokes caused by blood clots, without increasing the risk of serious bleeding or triggering an autoimmune response, according to new research in the American Heart Association journal Hypertension.

An experimental vaccine might one day protect ischemic stroke survivors from developing blood clots and subsequent strokes. (American Heart Association)
