In 2016 the centenary of the discovery of the Heparin is celebrated and this video is a tribute to this event

Heparin is the most commonly used anticoagulant and antithrombotic in the world and today appears on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines. It is not every day that we get the chance to celebrate the 100th anniversary of a medication that is still in widespread clinical use and which saves more than 100 million lives every year. 2016 is the year of celebration of the centenary of the discovery of heparin and this video is a tribute to it.
