Severe bleeding after childbirth or post-partum haemorrhage is the leading cause of more than 1,00,000 maternal deaths around the world. According to the United Nations, 77% of maternal deaths occur in 20 countries including India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Many die because hospitals do not have enough blood at hand to replace blood that these patients lose. Now, scientists found that use of Tranexamic acid, has the potential to save the lives of millions of mothers. It was first discovered by a husband and wife team in post-World War II Japan.
Haleema, Associate Professor of Clinical Trials at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine said: "We now have important evidence that the early use of tranexamic acid can save women's lives. we hope that doctors will use it as early as possible."
