Researchers have developed a new synthetic molecule that can break down blood clots without interfering with blood's natural ability to clot after an injury

We need our blood to walk a very fine line between flowing freely and clotting, and treatments for blood clots in the body naturally come with a risk of excessive bleeding from an injury. But now, researchers at EPFL have developed a synthetic blood thinner that doesn’t have this side effect, fighting thrombosis while still allowing blood to clot normally in a wound.
