two new blood thinners, Brilinta (ticagrelor, tye-KA-grel-or) and Xarelto (rivaroxaban, zuh-REL-toe)

You'll hear lots of buzz about two new blood thinners, Brilinta (ticagrelor, tye-KA-grel-or) and Xarelto (rivaroxaban, zuh-REL-toe).

Brilinta is used to prevent heart attacks...by stopping blood cells from clumping together and forming a clot that affects the heart.

It'll compete with Plavix (clopidogrel) and Effient (prasugrel).
