Inhibition of ex-vivo PAF-induced platelet aggregation by the PAF-antagonist RP 48740: relationship to plasma concentrations in healthy volunteers

RP 48740, 3-(3-pyridyl)-1H,3H-pyrrolo [1,2-c] thiazole-7-carboxamide, a specific competitive PAF-receptor antagonist in vitro, was given to 29 healthy male volunteers for 7 days. Plasma drug concentrations and exvivo PAF-induced platelet aggregation were assessed on Days 1, 4, and 7. RP 48740 had linear pharmacokinetics after single and repeated doses. It… CONTINUE READING
