Oral antiplatelet therapy is a cornerstone of antithrombotic treatment in patients with acute coronary syndromes.(ACS). However, traditional therapy with clopidogrel has several limitations, including variable inter-individual platelet effects and low inhibition of platelet aggregation. Optimal care of ACS patients requires that clinicians recognize the challenges involved in balancing the benefits and risks associated with current treatments, as well as understand the potential improvements in patient care that emerging therapeutic approaches may provide.
