Blood clot bank aims to boost global stroke research



The New South Wales (NSW) State Brain Clot Bank, in Sydney, is aiming to collect over 1400 specimens from donors at the hi-tech facility over the next four years.

These make up between 30 and 40 per cent of all patients whose stroke was caused by a blood clot and can be difficult to treat since the cause is not known.
