Summary of Clinical Use
Ticlopidine is used to prevent blood clots after a recent heart attack or stroke
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Ticlopidine antagonises the P2Y purinoceptor 12 (P2RY12), leading to impaired ADP-mediated activation of the integrin αIIbβ3 complex on platelet membranes which normally binds fibrinogen. This action inhibits fibrinogen-induced aggregation of platelets, thereby reducing clot formation.
