AGGRASTAT* (tirofiban hydrochloride), a non-peptide antagonist of the platelet glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptor, inhibits platelet aggregation.

Tirofiban hydrochloride monohydrate, a non-peptide molecule, is chemically described as N- (butylsulfonyl)-O-[4-(4-piperidinyl)butyl]-L-tyrosine monohydrochloride monohydrate. Its molecular formula is C22H36N2O5SHClH2O.

Tirofiban hydrochloride monohydrate is a white to off-white, non-hygroscopic, free-flowing powder, with a molecular weight of 495.08. It is very slightly soluble in water.

AGGRASTAT Injection Premixed is supplied as a sterile solution in water for injection, for intravenous use only, in plastic containers. Each 500 mL of the premixed, iso-osmotic intravenous injection contains 28.09 mg tirofiban hydrochloride monohydrate equivalent to 25 mg tirofiban (50 mg/Ml) and the following inactive ingredients: 4.5 g sodium chloride, 270 mg sodium citrate dihydrate, and 16 mg citric acid anhydrous. The pH ranges from 5.5 to 6.5 and may have been adjusted with hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide.

The flexible container is manufactured from a specially designed multilayer plastic (PL 2408). Solutions in contact with the plastic container leach out certain chemical components from the plastic in very small amounts; however, biological testing was supportive of the safety of the plastic container materials.

AGGRASTAT Injection is a sterile concentrated solution for intravenous infusion after dilution and is supplied in a 50 mL vial. Each mL of the solution contains 0.281 mg of tirofiban hydrochloride monohydrate equivalent to 0.25 mg of tirofiban and the following inactive ingredients: 0.16 mg citric acid anhydrous, 2.7 mg sodium citrate dihydrate, 8 mg sodium chloride, and water for injection. The pH ranges from 5.5 to 6.5 and may have been adjusted with hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide.
