LONDON, United Kingdom – JANUARY 02: A woman takes a pill from a pharmacy in London, United England on January 2, 2017.
The L544 pill can save ‘luckiest’ stroke patients from the dreaded stroke, researchers have said.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed the L544 could cure “lucky” stroke patients in as little as five minutes.
“A stroke patient who was lucky enough to have a L544 (a generic version of an L-type hormone) could receive the same benefit without requiring a follow-up visit to the hospital,” study co-author Dr. Yoon Young-pye, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, said in a press release.
“In this way, patients with L-Hormones may have a significantly lower risk of stroke than people without L-types.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a stroke is a “progressive, fatal, life-threatening neurological disorder that occurs when the blood flow in the brain stops or stops completely.
It is a serious condition that can result in death, permanent disability, or long-term damage to the body and mind.”
According the Mayo Clinic, L-hormones have a wide variety of uses including helping with mood, weight loss, sexual function, sleep, mood, appetite, memory, and energy.
They can also treat pain, improve skin conditions, and improve sleep patterns.
The L544 is available in generic form for $79.99, but for the study it was $49.99.
The researchers say they are currently evaluating the L-nucleus, the molecule in the pill that is used to make the pill.
The researchers say the study could have implications for other stroke treatments, such as a pill that can treat depression.
