This is a consequence of activated platelets exposing P-selectin and then interacting with blood leucocytes rather than with other platelets in the Chapter 1. Antiplatelet Agents: Current and Novel 33 blood. Platelet-leucocyte conjugates, as well as platelet aggregates, are believed to contribute to thrombus formation and potentially this could be one explanation for the lack of success seen with the oral GPIIb/IIIa antagonists used as antithrombotic drugs.

The optimal definition of resistance or non-responsiveness to aspirin is the demonstration of residual activity of the primary target of aspirin, namely the COX-1 enzyme. Measurement of serum TxB2 or agonist-induced TxB2 in platelet rich plasma and AA-induced platelet aggregation are the most specific assays to indicate COX-1 activity (“COX-1 specific methods”). However, serum TxB2 measurement may be affected by non-platelet sources such as leukocytes. The VerifyNow aspirin assay measures AA- induced agglutination of platelets to fibrinogen coated beads in whole blood; the thrombelastography (TEG) Platelet Mapping assay measures AA-induced platelet-fibrin clot strength in whole blood; and the Multiplate analyzer is an impedance aggregometer that employs AA as an agonist in whole blood.
