Picotamide is a platelet aggregation inhibitor. It works as a thromboxane synthase inhibitor and a thromboxane receptor inhibitor, the latter by modifying cellular responses to activation of the thromboxane receptor.[1] Picotamide is licensed in Italy for the treatment of clinical arterial thrombosis and peripheral artery disease.[2]
