Brilinta (TM) - ticagrelor, AstraZeneca's new heart drug - Biotech, Pharma and Life Science Channel

20:31 EST 18th November 2018 | BioPortfolio


Brilinta - ticagrelor, AstraZeneca's new heart drug is a blood-thinning medicine designed to prevent dangerous blood clots in patients with serious chest pain or previous heart attacks. It reduces the clumping of blood particles, called platelets, that promote clotting.

Analysts believe that peak sales of Brilinta could reach $2bn or more, but Brilinta will face stiff competition in the blood-thinning market, notably from Plavix.


BRILINTA is a type of prescription antiplatelet medication for people who have had a recent heart attack or severe chest pain that happened because their heart wasn't getting enough oxygen and who are being treated with medicines or procedures to open blocked arteries in the heart. BRILINTA is used with aspirin to stop platelets from sticking together and forming a blood clot that could block blood flow to the heart and cause another, possibly fatal, heart attack. Platelets are small cells in the blood that help with normal blood clotting.


BRILINTA used with aspirin lowers your chance of having another serious problem with your heart or blood vessels such as heart attack, stroke, or blood clots in your stent if you received one. These can be fatal. In fact, in a large clinical study BRILINTA was even better than Plavix® (clopidogrel bisulfate) tablets at lowering your chances of having another heart attack.
