What is Vorapaxar

Vorapaxar is a tricyclic himbacine-derived selective inhibitor of protease activated receptor (PAR-1) indicated for reducing the incidence of thrombotic cardiovascular events in patients with a history of myocardial infarction (MI) or with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). By inhibiting PAR-1, a thrombin receptor expressed on platelets, vorapaxar prevents thrombin-related platelet aggregation.

Vorapaxar mechanism of action

Vorapaxar inhibits platelet aggregation through the reversible antagonism of protease-activated receptor 1 (PAR-1), also known as thrombin receptor. PARs are a family of G-protein coupled receptors highly expressed on platelets and activated by serine protease activity of thrombin to mediate thrombotic response. By blocking PAR-1 activating, vorapaxar inhibits thrombin-induced platelet aggregation and thrombin receptor agonist peptide (TRAP)-induced platelet aggregation. Vorapaxar does not inhibit platelet aggregation induced by other agonists such as adenosine diphosphate (ADP), collagen or a thromboxane mimetic.

Indication of Vorapaxar

Vorapaxar is indicated for the reduction of thrombotic cardiovascular events in patients with a history of myocardial infarction (MI) or peripheral arterial disease (PAD). It is usually co-administered with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and/or clopidogrel, and should therefore be administered as an addition to these medications as it has not been studied alone.

Toxicity of Vorapaxar

There is an increased risk of bleeding and intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), which is why the use of vorapaxar is contraindicated in patients with a history of stroke, trans-ischemic attack (TIA), ICH, or active pathological bleeding such as peptic ulcer. Animal studies have suggested that there is a low probability of embryo/fetal toxicities, however there are no adequate and well-controlled studies describing use in pregnant women. Vorapaxar should also be avoided during breastfeeding as it is unknown whether vorapaxar or its metabolites are excreted in human milk, however it has been shown to be actively secreted in the milk of rats.
