Weisman At 24 hours following the bolus dose, the level of GP llblilla receptor blockade had fallen to 50% to 60% and platelet aggregation was inhibited by only 60%. Since it is likely to take more than 8 hours for an injured atherosclerotic blood vessel to tuldergo passivation (24), that is, to become nonthrombogenic and nonplatelet-reactive, it was suspected that the duration of platelet inhibition achieved with a single bolus dose might not be therapeutically adequate. A bolus dose followed by a continuous infusion proved to be more effective in producing sustained platelet inhibition.
