Etifibatide (integrilin) is a novel polypeptide platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptor antagonist, which inhibits platelet aggregation and thrombosis by inhibiting the last common pathway of platelet aggregation. Compared with the monoclonal antibody abciximab, eptifibatide has a stronger, more directional and specific binding to GPIIb/IIIa due to the existence of a single conservative amino acid substitution—lysine to replace arginine. Therefore, it should have a good therapeutic effect in the interventional treatment of acute coronary syndrome. Platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptor antagonist drugs have been developed a lot, and currently there are 3 kinds of preparations that can be used in clinical internationally, abciximab, eptifibatide and tirofiban. ). There is little experience in the use of platelet glycoprotein GPIIb/IIIa receptor antagonists in China, and the available drugs are also very limited. Only one drug, tirofiban hydrochloride, is on the market. Therefore, a new platelet glycoprotein IIb was developed. /IIIa receptor antagonists are imperative. Domestic eptifibatide is an imitation product produced by Chengdu Sino Biological Products Co., Ltd.
Classification of Antiplatelet Aggregation Drugs
Antiplatelet aggregation drugs can be roughly divided into three categories: 1. Cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) inhibitors, such as aspirin. 2. Inhibit platelet aggregation induced by adenosine diphosphate (ADP), such as clopidogrel, prasugrel, cangrelor, ticagrelor, etc. 3. Platelet glycoprotein Ⅱb/Ⅲa receptor antagonists, such as abciximab, eptifibatide, tirofiban, etc. In addition, there are prostaglandin EP3 receptor inhibitors, newly synthesized chemical components and effective extracts from traditional Chinese medicine.
