Researchers at the University of Highlands have been planning to conduct a new study, which would focus at finding whether or not exhaust fumes released by vehicles prove successful in treating heart or stroke patients, as per a recent report.
As per the findings, a small trial was being carried out the previous day too. Scientists were using fumes under the same so as to find if heart illness can be cured. The hopes to cure patients on a wider scale using carbon monoxide and nitric oxide are also raised by the trial only.
Since, it has been found that even small traces of fumes were proving helpful in preventing blood from clotting. Also, arteries were getting wider as toxins were used in patients.
The report says that Prof. Ian Megson and colleagues have now been preparing molecules using the same chemicals nitric oxide, hydrogen sulphide and carbon monoxide. The same is being done with a hope to see a new treatment strategy replacing an existing blood-thinning medicine.
It is being said that the first research would be conducted on pigs’ hearts so as to see the consequences. “These things take time to get from bench to bedside but patients can look at this with some optimism”, said Prof. Megson.
