Platelets are essential components of blood. Because of drawbacks in collection and storage of platelets, marked shortage is felt especially in the areas endemic for dengue fever and malaria. To meet the shortage, various synthetic and semisynthetic compounds are being produced and tested worldwide, which either enhance platelet function or are a substitute to it. In this study, we discuss these semiartificial and artificial substitutes of platelets along with other compounds that enhance the activity of platelets, with special emphasis on their mechanism of action and biofeasibility.
