Clopidogrel is a milestone drug in antithrombotic and antiplatelet aggregation. It was approved to be sold on the market by the FDA in 1997. The drug was jointly researched and developed by Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi. Prior to the patent expiration in 2012, Plavix was ranked after Lipitor for many years and was the second best-selling drug in the world. After the patent expired, a global wave of biosimilar boomed.

Clopidogrel was early developed and marketed in China. In 2000, the Clopidogrel of Shenzhen Salubris Pharmaceuticals was first approved for registration under the trade name "Taijia". In Sept. 2000, the Clopidogrel of Sanofi-Aventis and Bristol-Myers Squibb was granted administrative protection in China. In 2001, Sanofi-Aventis's Clopidogrel was approved to be sold in China under the trade name "Plavix". For years, Clopidogrel has been ranking first in China's antithrombotic drug market, with sales revenue exceeding CNY 2 billion in 2017.

(Trade Name: Plavix), Shenzhen Salubris Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Trade Name: Taijia), Lepu Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (Trade Name: Shuai Tai) and Sanofi (Trade Name: Plavix).
