Hampering a Heartbreaker

Antibiotic might stem injury from heart attack

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: A TV ad urges people who think they're having a heart attack to pop an aspirin before rushing to the emergency room. They might be even better off taking antibiotics, according to a new study. The work shows that an antibiotic stems a previously untreatable form of heart damage not by killing bugs but by suppressing cellular enzymes.
