BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Clopidogrel is an inhibitor of ADP- induced platelet aggregation. It reduces the chance of having a heart attack or a stroke in people who have already had a heart attack or a stroke. Acetylsalicylic acid inhibits the activity of the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase and thus prostaglandins and thromboxane formation are decreased hence rapidly inhibits the platelet aggregation.
