Dipyridamole is a well-known vasodilator and a powerful inhibitor of activation and aggregation of blood platelets. Moreover, dipyridamole is essentially non-toxic. The drug is used extensively in clinical anti-coagulation regimes, for example pre- and post-coronary angioplasty procedures. Recently, we have found that photochemical, covalent coupling of… CONTINUE READING
