Abciximab (ReoPro®, Centocor, Eli Lilly) is an IgG1k Fab anti-GPIIb/IIIa chimeric monoclonal antibody (mAb) approved by FDA in 1993, by Health Canada in 1996, and by TGA (NZ) in 2005. In Europe the product was approved in some countries (UK, RoI), and under specific concertation procedures, but did not receive the final clearance from EMEA.
