two new IV platelet inhibitors

The FDA just approved two new IV plateletinhibitors...Aggrastat (tirofiban) and Integrilin (eptifibatide).

They're being called "super aspirins"...because they're morepotent than aspirin. In fact, these new drugs are similar toproteins in snake venom that cause bleeding.

Aggrastat or Integrilin are for treating unstableangina...certain types of heart attacks...and angioplasty.
