Magnetic Nanoparticles Could Stop Blood Clot-Caused Stroke

(Nanotechnology Now) – By loading magnetic nanoparticles with drugs and dressing them in biochemical camouflage, Houston Methodist researchers say they can destroy blood clots 100 to 1,000 times faster than a commonly used clot-busting technique. The finding, reported in Advanced Functional Materials (early online), is based on experiments in human blood and mouse clotting models.
