The POPULAR trial put Plateletworks® on the short list of platelet function assays that actually work to catch non-responders to the anti-platelet drug Plavix® (clopidogrel) at higher risk for cardiovascular events. Plateletworks can be used anytime there are general concerns about the effect of drug therapies on platelet function.
