Eptifibatide and tirofiban

These are Anti-coagulants. Eptifibatide is a cyclic peptide and tirofiban is a non-peptide.

These bind to platelet GP IIb/IIIa receptors at the site that interacts with arginine-glycine-aspartic acid sequence of fibrinogen.

These are almost similar to abciximab in pharmacological aspects.
