Glycoprotein platelet inhibitors

What are Glycoprotein platelet inhibitors?

Glycoprotein platelet inhibitors prevent platelet adhesion by binding to the glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptors on the plasma membrane of platelets. They stop the actual substrates of the glycoprotein receptors from binding to the receptor, so inhibit platelets from sticking together to form a thrombus, which can lead to stroke, myocardial infarction or deep vein thrombosis.

Glycoprotein platelet inhibitors are used in patients with angina, after a heart attack, angioplasty or other types of coronary vasculature procedures.
