Product Information

  • Description

    Platelet aggregation inhibitors such as Clopidogrel are essential medications for individuals with certain cardiovascular and peripheral vascular diseases. It works by blocking the action of ADP, a substance in the blood that causes the platelets to stop sticking together and decreases the chance of blood clots forming. This helps to reduce the risk of heart attacks or strokes in people with cardiovascular disease, and strokes in people with peripheral vascular disease. Clopidogrel is actually a prodrug, a substance that is metabolized in the body to form a drug with the desired action. It is converted to its active metabolite by the liver through the enzyme CYP2C19. This enzyme is therefore critical to the effectiveness of Clopidogrel, and factors that influence CYP2C19 activity can affect the individual response to clopidogrel.Because many factors can influence its activity, the activity of platelet aggregation inhibitors can vary greatly between individuals. As such, its use should always be optimized for each patient under the guidance of a trained healthcare professional.
