Brilinta general information

What is Brilinta used for?

Brilinta tablets 90mg are used to prevent the formation of blood clots (thrombosis) in people with cardiovascular disease, particularly acute coronary conditions, such as recent heart attack (myocardial infarction) or unstable angina (chest pain), to reduce risk of another heart attack or stroke and to reduce risk of death due to cardiovascular disease.  Brilinta tablets 90mg should be used in addition to aspirin, which is another anti-clotting medication that helps reduce the risk of another heart attack and prevent death due to cardiovascular disease.

How does Brilinta work?

Brilinta tablets 90mg contain ticagrelor a specific and potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation (clumping), which is part of the process that leads to the formation of a blood clot (thrombosis) to plug an injured blood vessel and stop bleeding.  Platelets (or thrombocytes) can also be induced to aggregate when they come in contact with a ruptured atherosclerotic plaque, which is when an artery wall is hardened by build-up of cholesterol, a process called atherosclerosis.  A blood clot formed in this way may end up blocking the artery cutting off blood supply to various parts of the body.  This can result in heart attack if the coronary arteries (supplying blood to the heart) become blocked and the heart becomes starved of oxygen; or stroke if the arteries to the brain become blocked, causing oxygen starvation to the brain.  Platelet aggregation is dependent on a chemical called adenosine diphosphate (ADP) that activates platelets to aggregate by binding to a platelet receptor called P2Y12.  Ticagrelor in Brilinta tablets 90mg binds selectively and reversibly to the P2Y12 receptor on platelets, blocking the action of adenosine and thereby, inhibiting platelet activation and aggregation.  By inhibiting platelet aggregation at the site of blood vessel damage due to atherosclerosis, Brilinta tablets 90mg keeps the blood flowing and reduces risk of thrombosis in people who have cardiovascular disease and who are at risk of heart attack or stroke.  Ticagrelor in Brilinta tablets 90mg has a rapid onset of action and its effect is maintained for up to 8 hours.

What does Brilinta contain?

Brilinta tablets contain active ingredient ticagrelor 90mg, an inhibitor of platelet aggregation that is used to treat acute cardiovascular disease to prevent thrombosis.  They also contain mannitol (E421), dibasic calcium phosphate magnesium stearate (E470b), sodium starch glycolate, hydroxypropyl-cellulose (E463), talc, titanium dioxide (E171), ferric oxide yellow (E172), polyethylene-glycol 400, hypromellose (E464)

Preventing heart attack and stroke with Brilinta

Brilinta tablets 90mg contain ticagrelor, a potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation (clumping) that is used to prevent the formation of blood clots (thrombosis) in people with cardiovascular disease, particularly acute coronary conditions, such as recent heart attack (myocardial infarction) or unstable angina (chest pain), to reduce risk of another heart attack or stroke and to reduce risk of death due to cardiovascular disease.  Platelet aggregation results in the formation of a blood clot (thrombosis) to plug an injured blood vessel and stop bleeding.  In atherosclerotic arteries (artery wall hardened by cholesterol build up) there is a risk that the atherosclerotic plaque may rupture and induce platelet aggregation and blood clot formation, which may block the artery cutting off blood supply to the heart or brain causing a heart attack or stroke.  Ticagrelor in Brilinta tablets 90mg binds to a specific receptor on platelets, blocking adenosine dependent platelet activation, which inhibits platelet aggregation.  By inhibiting platelet aggregation at the site of blood vessel damage, Brilinta tablets 90mg keeps the blood flowing and reduces risk of thrombosis in people who have cardiovascular disease and this reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke.
