CLASS and MECHANISM of Action
Generic "Plavix" is a potent oral antiplatelet agent often used in the treatment of coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, and cerebrovascular disease. Generic "Plavix" keeps blood platelets slippery and discourages formation of clots, thereby improving blood flow to your heart, brain, and body. The mechanism of action of Generic "Plavix" is irreversible blockade of the adenosine diphosphate (ADP) receptor on platelet cell membranes. This receptor is named P2Y12 and is important in platelet aggregation, the cross-linking of platelets by fibrin. The blockade of this receptor inhibits platelet aggregation by blocking activation of the glycoprotein IIb/IIIa pathway.
