German Scientists Develop Co-crystal to Enhance Aspirin's Speed
Berlin, 14 Sep (ONA) --- A team from Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, has created a co-crystal that enhances the water-solubility of aspirin's active ingredient, acetylsalicylic acid (ASA).
This breakthrough improves the drug's effectiveness for pain relief and preventing blood clots.
When administered promptly to patients with suspected heart attacks, ASA lowers mortality by 25%.
The co-crystal dissolves in water, releasing ASA rapidly into the bloodstream.
