Description of Anagrelide

Anagrelide: A drug that is used to decrease the number of platelets in the blood in order to prevent blood clotting.
Source: National Institute of Health

Anagrelide: The hydrochloride salt of a synthetic quinazoline derivative, Anagrelide Hydrochloride reduces platelet production through a decrease in megakaryocyte maturation. Anagrelide inhibits cyclic AMP phosphodiesterase, as well as ADP- and collagen-induced platelet aggregation. At therapeutic doses, it does not influence white cell counts or coagulation parameters. Anagrelide is used for treatment of essential thrombocythemia to reduce elevated platelet counts and the risk of thrombosis.(NCI04)
