Protease-activated receptor-1 antagonists

What are Protease-activated receptor-1 antagonists

Protease-activated receptor-1 (PAR 1) antagonists have an antiplatelet effect by inhibiting thrombin-related platelet aggregation. Thrombin's cellular effects are mediated by PARs therefore the action of the PAR 1 antagonists alters signalling in platelets and interferes with platelet activation. PAR 1 antagonists are used to reduce the risk of thrombotic cardiovascular events in patients who have an increased risk of myocardial infarction or peripheral arterial disease.

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
