inhibits degranulation, mimicking ADP and thromboxane release. it is also a uricosuric agent, blocking PCT resorption of uric acid (so much goes out with urine: uricosuric), but no longer commonly used sulfinpyrazone
a PDE inhibitor. therefore, cAMP increases. this process inhibits thromboxane A2, such inhibition antagonizes platelet stickiness, an ddecresaes platelet adhesiveness to thrombogenic surfaces. dipyridamole

these effectivlely block gpIIbIIIa receptors on platelets. these receptors normally aid in platelet to platelet aggregation process; with these receptors blocked, platelet aggregation is powerfully inhibited. these agents are used to minimize risk of MI. glycoprotein IIbIIIa antagonists, such as eptifibatide, abciximab, tirofiban
