NanoRx: Clot-Busting Nanotherapeutic

Previous Next

In this animation, learn how the Wyss Institute clot-busting nanotherapeutic is activated by fluid high shear force – which occurs where blood flows through vessels narrowed by obstruction – to specifically target clots and dissolve them away. By pairing this drug with an intra-arterial device that restores blood flow to complete obstructions, the drug-device combination could one day be used to treat stroke.
