A. Ticlopidine
B. Clopidogrel
C. Aspirin
D. A & B

 Answer: C. Aspirin
Thromboxane A² increases the platelets aggregation but PGI² decreases the platelets aggregation. When aspirin low doses are used it irreversibly inhibits the production of thromboxane in platelets by acetylation of COX. Platelets do not have nuclei so they can't synthesize new enzymes due to which thromboxane deficiency persists for a lifetime. when thromboxane is decreased the platelets aggregation is reduced.
