New drug may save thousands of heart attack

According to new study, a 'superaspirin' could save thousands of heart attack victims each year. Scientists looked at the effect of adding the anti-clotting drug Plavix to aspirin, which is routinely given to the patients.

Researchers found the regime increased survival rates and helped patients live longer. The treatment only costs an extra Ј1 a day per patient.

A study of 46,000 patients from 1,250 hospitals in China found that adding Plavix, also known as clopidogrel, reduced the relative risk of deaths, repeat heart attacks and stroke by 9 per cent, informs Daily Mail.
