The article discusses a clinical trial on remote ischemic conditioning that could help in reducing or preventing myocardial infarction. It cites the mechanisms that the researchers used in the study such as occlusion and reperfusion. It elaborates the role of cell as well as morphine and opioid receptors in managing signaling pathways of remote conditioning.
