Major discovery raises prospect of better patient care by improving platelet life span

aimed at manipulating this switch in order to prolong the life span of blood bank platelets, increasing their availability to patients receiving cancer treatment and others in danger of serious bleeding".

At the opposite end of the scale, shortening platelet life span may be useful in the treatment of other diseases. For instance, too many platelets can trigger dangerous blood clots leading to strokes or heart attacks. Reducing platelet life span may therefore prove valuable in the prevention and management of these life-threatening conditions.
