Research Could Lead to Vaccine Against Heart Attacks

Swedish scientists have made a discovery that could lead to a vaccine against heart attacks.

Researchers from Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute have, together with colleagues in France, found that some groups of white blood cells can form a molecule that protects against hardening of the arteries, the process in which fats accumulate in the blood vessels, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

The process has worked in mice, and the researchers have great hopes it can lead to future medicines to protect humans. Their work is published in the online edition of the journal “Nature Medicine”.
