Dissolve Clots In Your Blood With Nanoparticles

Harvard biomedical engineers have come up with a way to clean your blood circulatory system. They designed drug-infused nanoparticles like platelets (that actually form the clots), so that they follow the blood flow into the vessels with clots and then release a drug called plasminogen activator, which dissolves those clogs. So far, this medication has been successfully tried on mice, as being passively targeted and acting only on clots, the nanoparticles find clots anywhere, dissolve them by themselves and the their leftovers biodegrade without harmful side effects.
