Researchers at Cardiff University says they have discovered a new family of lipids (fats) that plays a key role in controlling clot formation.
The new discovery could lead to new ways of reducing the risk of excess clotting, called thrombosis, potentially preventing deaths from many killer diseases like heart attacks, strokes and deep vein thrombosis.
While clot formation is an essential response to injury, the formation of unwanted clots is central to many killer diseases. The most obvious are stroke or heart attack where a blood clot blocks a vessel and causes oxygen deprivation and organ damage, but subtle changes in blood clotting are involved in many inflammatory diseases too, such as sepsis, diabetes and even cancer.
With the discovery of new lipids that promote clot formation, we can find new ways to prevent unwanted clots being generated and even use these lipids to help reduce blood loss where excessive bleeding is a problem, such as hereditary bleeding disorders or bleeding during childbirth.

Cardiff University’s student racing team have won the annual Formula Student competition at Silverstone, becoming the first UK winners in the competition’s 19-year history.
The ‘Cardiff Racing’ team, made up of 56 students from the University’s School of Engineering, beat off competition from over 100 university teams from around the world.
Throughout the weekend, the building and engineering skills of the students were put to the test as the car went under scrutiny by the judges, before the students took their car onto the track to perform a number of speed and agility tests.
The Formula Student event is a fantastic and highly competitive competition. It takes considerable dedication, hard work and skill to win such an event and we could not be more proud of our students for this achievement. We are quite simply blown away.
