While each year about 600,000 injured patients die because of heavy bleeding, such people can be saved if a drug tranexamic acid, called TXA, can be administered on them easily.
A study says that is very effective that it should be included in the list of essential medicine by the WHO. The drug reduces the rte of blood-clot breakdown.
Researchers have claimed that the drug can save at least 70000 to 100000 people across the world in trauma related cases. In India the drug can save 13,000 lives and in China 12,000 lives each year.
