Answer

Antiplatelet Agents

These drugs inhibit platelet aggregation. The drugs are thought to prolong platelet survival time and, hence, prevent further worsening of necrobiosis lipoidica. They also help prevent cerebrovascular accidents and improve renal and systemic function.

Ticlopidine

Ticlopidine is a second-line antiplatelet therapy for patients who fail aspirin therapy.
