HKU Study Finds Aspirin Treatment for Cardiovascular Disease in Chinese


HKU Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine study finds that aspirin treatment for cardiovascular disease in Chinese does not increase the risk of recurrent intracranial haemorrhage. Furthermore, the study found that survivors of intracerebral hemorrhage who were prescribed aspirin as needed had a lower risk of subsequent acute heart disease and ischemic stroke. This study may provide new insight for Hong Kong doctors to treat patients with cardiovascular disease who have suffered an intracranial hemorrhage and may change the way many doctors prescribe drugs in the long run.

The research article has been published in the reputable international medical journal- Thrombosis and Haemostasis.
