    AbstractPeptidomimetic RGD (Arg-Gly-Asp) analogs, which bind to glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa on the surface of activated platelets, have been shown to inhibit platelet aggregation. Consequently, such RGD analogs can be used for the treatment of unstable angina pectoris and myocardial infarction....

    Acute coronary syndromes and percutaneous coronary interventions share a common pathophysiological mechanism of intimal disruption and platelet aggregation. Glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptor antagonists, which interrupt the final common pathway of platelet activation and aggregation, have been...
