Using PPG favors the neurological deficit recovery in patients who suffered an ischemic stroke (a cerebrovascular clinical picture) and significantly prevents its recurrence, the CNIC posted on Twitter.
PPG´s base material is taken from sugar cane and, according to Dalmer laboratories, it becomes a natural medicine causing no harmful side effects.
PPG appears as the most complete solution to high cholesterol level issues, but since the 1990s it has faced silence from large pharmaceutical companies interested in monopolizing international markets, the CNIC added.
Ahead of the World Stroke Day, groups of researchers warned about the advance of cerebrovascular damage caused by stroke and forecast a 35% increase by 2025.
This disease is considered as the second cause of death around the globe, the first of disability and leads fatal diseases in women, surpassing breast cancer.
One of the main challenges scientists is to work in education, since data have shown that only 10% of the population is aware of elements of the disease, while vast majority are unaware of this.
70 or 80% of strokes could be avoided or reduced in case of having healthy lifestyle habits, experts warned.
Among risk factors are tobacco, alcohol, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, as well as hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, carotid stenosis and atrial fibrillation.
