New Antiplatelet Therapy

I’ve attached a pre-pub article describing a phase I trial of ACT017, a novel antiplatelet antibody fragment specific for glycoprotein VI, a platelet membrane collagen receptor. The manufacturers propose that ACT017 infusion can suppress platelet activity as part of coronary artery disease therapy with minimal bleeding risk. Clip or tap the citation for full information:
