Prospective randomised trial.

plavix usual dosage

Of 28,683 CEAs, 21,624 patients (75%) were on aspirin and 7059 (25%) were on dual therapy. Patients on dual therapy were more likely to have multiple comorbidities, including coronary artery disease (P < .001), congestive heart failure (P < .001), and diabetes (P < .001). Patients on dual therapy were also more likely to have a drain placed (P < .001) and receive protamine during CEA (P < .001). Multivariable analysis showed that dual therapy was independently associated with increased reoperation for bleeding (odds ratio [OR], 1.71; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.20-2.42; P = .003) but was protective against TIA or stroke (OR, 0.61; 95% CI, 0.43-0.87; P = .007), stroke (OR, 0.63; 95% CI, 0.41-0.97; P = .03), and stroke/death (OR, 0.66; 95% CI, 0.44-0.98; P = .04). Propensity score matching yielded two groups of 4548 patients and showed that patients on dual therapy were more likely to require reoperation for bleeding (1.3% vs 0.7%; P = .004) but less likely to suffer TIA or stroke (0.9% vs 1.6%; P = .002), stroke (0.6% vs 1.0%; P = .04), or stroke/death (0.7% vs 1.2%; P = .03). Within the propensity score-matched groups, patients on dual therapy had increased rates of reoperation for bleeding regardless of carotid symptom status. However, asymptomatic patients on dual therapy demonstrated reduced rates of TIA or stroke (0.6% vs 1.5%; P < .001), stroke (0.4% vs 0.9%; P = .01), and composite stroke/death (0.5% vs 1.0%; P = .02). Among propensity score-matched patients with symptomatic carotid disease, these differences were not statistically significant.

Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) and antiplatelet agents, especially aspirin and clopidogrel, are among the most prescribed medications worldwide. Their co-administration is justified by the increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding related to the antiplatelet therapy. The issue of the interaction between PPI and clopidogrel has been raised with the emergence of the concept of "high on-clopidogrel platelet reactivity" (or "clopidogrel resistance") together with the discovery of the role of CYP2C19 isoform in the pharmacokinetics of those two medications. Indeed, CYP2C19 is involved in the conversion of the clopidogrel pro-drug into its active metabolite and is involved in the metabolisation of PPI into inactive metabolites, acting as substrates/inhibitors of CYP2C19. Despite their heterogeneity, most pharmacodynamic studies have shown a decreased clopidogrel antiplatelet effect when associated to PPI, especially those with the highest CYP2C19 inhibiting activity (omeprazole, lansoprazole, rabeprazole). On the other hand, clinical studies are inconclusive. Retrospective studies have shown an increased risk of major cardiovascular events or mortality when clopidogrel and PPI are associated in comparison with clopidogrel alone, particularly in the patients with the higher cardiovascular risk. However, the two prospective randomized studies published so far did not find any interaction and confirmed the benefit of PPI on the gastrointestinal bleeding. As a conclusion, as the clinical studies are not conclusive, the French health authorities have recently removed the alert about this interaction. PPI and clopidogrel can thus be co-prescribed.

These recommendations can help clinicians make evidence-based treatment decisions with their patients who have had strokes.

Because the vast majority of patients with ischemic stroke have recurrent stroke or transient ischemic attack, rather than myocardial infarction, as their next event, antiplatelet therapies for these patients should be administered according to what has been shown to be efficacious for secondary stroke protection rather than for myocardial protection. Combination therapies, which provide optimal platelet inhibition as well as vascular protection, may offer the best strategy for secondary stroke protection.

Platelets play a pathological role in acute coronary syndromes and are therefore a major therapeutic target. The caveat to this is that their physiological haemostatic role means there must be a careful balance between preventing ischaemia and not promoting bleeding. In addition to accepted oral agents (aspirin and clopidogrel), more potent antiplatelet agents have recently become available (prasugrel and ticagrelor) at a cost of increased bleeding.

These data confirm a modest incremental antiplatelet effect of a 600-mg clopidogrel LD compared with 300-mg LD but provide no support for a clinical benefit in patients with NSTEACS managed with an early invasive strategy including a high rate (69%) of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor use during PCI.

The potential drug-drug interaction (pDDI) increases as the number of concomitant medications increases. Patients with cardiovascular disorders are at higher risk for drug- drug interactions because of the types and number of drugs they receive. While drug interactions are reported to be common, there is no published report of the prevalence of such interactions among Indian cardiac patients. The aim of the present study was to identify the pattern of pDDI and document any observed interaction. It was also planned to evaluate the demography of patients and correlate it with the drug-drug interactions.

Whether the association between platelet count (PC) and thrombotic and bleeding risk is independent of or varies by residual platelet reactivity to antiplatelet therapies is unclear. We sought to investigate the independent and combined effects of PC and platelet reactivity on thrombotic and bleeding risk after coronary artery implantation of drug-eluting stents (DES). Patients enrolled in the prospective, multicenter Assessment of Dual AntiPlatelet Therapy with Drug-Eluting Stents study were stratified by PC tertiles. The study cohort comprised 8,402 patients. By linear regression analysis, lower PC was strongly and independently associated with higher platelet reactive units (PRUs) on clopidogrel. After multivariable adjustment (including PRU and aspirin reactive units), high, but not low, PC tertile was independently associated with higher risk of thrombotic complications, including spontaneous myocardial infarction and stent thrombosis. Although no independent association was observed between PC tertiles and hemorrhagic risk, both high and low PC tertiles were associated with increased risk for all-cause mortality. After stratification of PC tertiles by tertiles of PRUs, the crude risk of thrombotic complications was highest in patients in the high PC and high PRU tertiles. By multivariable adjustment, PRU increases were uniformly associated with higher risk of thrombotic events across PC tertiles, without evidence of interaction. In conclusion, higher PCs and higher PRUs act independently and synergistically in determining thrombotic risk. Alongside PRU, PCs could be a simple hematological parameter to consider for risk stratification and in tailoring duration and potency of pharmacologic platelet inhibition after DES implantation.

Despite advances in antiplatelet therapy, the optimum antithrombotic regimen during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) remains to be determined. Cangrelor is an intravenous, reversibly-binding platelet P2Y12 receptor antagonist with ultra-rapid onset and offset of action that is approved in Europe and United States for use in patients undergoing PCI. This article describes the background for the development of cangrelor, the biology, pharmacology and clinical evidence supporting its use, and its likely position in the future.

This multicentre randomised trial included 108 patients. Sequential main branch (MB)/SB dilatation with pDEB, with provisional T-stenting with BMS in the MB was performed in the pDEB group, and with everolimus DES in the DES group. The primary endpoint was late lumen loss (LLL) at nine months. The secondary endpoint was the incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE: death, myocardial infarction, or target lesion revascularisation). In-segment MB LLL was 0.31±0.48 mm in the pDEB group, and 0.16±0.38 mm in the DES group (p=0.15); mean difference was 0.15 mm (upper limit one-sided 95% CI: 0.27 mm; p=0.001; non-inferiority test). LLL in SB was -0.04±0.76 mm in the pDEB group and -0.03±0.51 mm in the DES group (p=0.983). MACE and TLR were higher in the pDEB group (17.3% vs. 7.1%; p=0.105, and 15.4% vs. 3.6%; p=0.045), due to higher MB restenosis (13.5% vs. 1.8%; p=0.027).

18 iatrogenic dissections over 11 years were retrospectively analyzed. Data were gathered from patient records, run sheets, morbidity records and imaging studies. All procedures were done by operators trained to operate according to institution standards. Total cases were 6981, with 3925 angiograms and 3056 interventions. Incidence was 0.26%, with 0.25% during diagnostic and 0.26% during intervention. 1031 pediatric cases had no dissections. Beyond 35 years, dissection rate increased to 0.35%. There was no difference between men and women. Carotid dissection was more common than vertebral. Most were minimal intimal tear (67%) and others flow limiting (33%). All cases were managed with heparin in the acute stage and later with aspirin and Plavix or Coumadin, except in two cases. Cases having >70% luminal narrowing with poor intracranial cross circulation were stented. None presented with neurologic deficits acutely or on follow-up. 94% of patients were followed for a variable period, with variable imaging modalities, being a retrospective study. Angiogram, MRI brain with MR angiography (MRA), Doppler ultrasonogram and CT angiograms were used for follow-up. There was good outcome in 94% of the followed-up cases.

We reported previously the formation of a glutathionyl conjugate of the active metabolite (AM) of clopidogrel and the covalent modification of a cysteinyl residue of human cytochrome P450 2B6 in a reconstituted system (Mol Pharmacol 80:839-847, 2011). In this work, we extended our studies of the metabolism of clopidogrel to human liver microsomes in the presence of four reductants, namely, GSH, l-Cys, N-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC), and ascorbic acid. Our results demonstrated that formation of the AM was greatly affected by the reductant used and the relative amounts of the AM formed were increased in the following order: NAC (17%) < l-Cys (53%) < ascorbic acid (61%) < GSH (100%). AM-thiol conjugates were observed in the presence of NAC, l-Cys, and GSH. In the case of GSH, the formation of both the AM and the glutathionyl conjugate was dependent on the GSH concentrations, with similar K(m) values of ~0.5 mM, which indicates that formation of the thiol conjugates constitutes an integral part of the bioactivation processes for clopidogrel. It was observed that the AM was slowly converted to the thiol conjugate, with a half-life of ~10 h. Addition of dithiothreitol to the reaction mixture reversed the conversion, which resulted in a decrease in AM-thiol conjugate levels and a concomitant increase in AM levels, whereas addition of NAC led to the formation of AM-NAC and a concomitant decrease in AM-GSH levels. These results not only confirm that the AM is formed through oxidative opening of the thiolactone ring but also suggest the existence of an equilibrium between the AM, the thiol conjugates, and the reductants. These factors may affect the effective concentrations of the AM in vivo.

For this study, patients who underwent on-pump or off-pump coronary bypass surgery with preoperative acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and Ticagrelor administration, between January 2014 and December 2014, were included. In the matched control group, continued dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) consisted of Clopidogrel and ASA. A total of 28 consecutive patients (24 males; 73 ± 6.6 years) with preoperative Ticagrelor intake underwent elective (n = 22), urgent (n = 2) or emergency (n = 4) cardiac bypass surgery. The postoperative blood loss, red blood cell units given and intra- and postoperative bleeding complications were documented. To evaluate the effect of Ticagrelor treatment on bleeding during and after coronary bypass surgery in a non-randomized study, we used a case-matched analysis.

This analysis included five randomized trials (CURE, CREDO, CLARITY, COMMIT, and CHARISMA) in 79 624 patients. The incidence of all-cause mortality was 6.3% in the aspirin plus clopidogrel group versus 6.7% in the aspirin group (odds ratio [OR] 0.94; 95% CI 0.89, 0.99; p = 0.026). The incidence of myocardial infarction was 2.7% and 3.3% (OR 0.82; 95% CI 0.75, 0.89; p < 0.0001), and stroke was 1.2% and 1.4% (OR 0.82; 95% CI 0.73, 0.93; p = 0.002). Similarly, the incidence of major bleeding was 1.6% and 1.3% (OR 1.26; 95% CI 1.11, 1.41; p < 0.0001), and fatal bleeding was 0.28% and 0.27% (OR 1.04; 95% CI 0.76, 1.43; p = 0.79).

A total of 442 patients with chronic stable angina who were scheduled for elective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) were included in a randomized, double blind, multi-centric clinical trial being performed in 6 distinct university hospitals in 5 cities of Iran from March 2007 to November 2009. Baseline, demographic and history of risk factors were recorded using the patients' medical charts. Stenting procedure was performed via transfemoral approach using low osmolar contrast agents. Patients underwent BMS or DES placements based on the physician selection and were randomly assigned to Osvix or Plavix groups. Patients were followed by telephone in 0 and 6 months intervals regarding the major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) including death, myocardial infarction, in-stent thrombosis, stroke, target lesion revascularization, and target vascular revascularization. Angina episodes, bleeding, liver enzymes, neutrophils and platelets count were also assessed in these intervals.

While the performance of percutaneous coronary interventions remains the domain of interventional cardiologists, the management of these patients before, during, and after the procedure is in the domain of general cardiologists buy plavix online , internists and primary care physicians. Therefore, for optimal patient care it is crucial that all engaged physicians should understand the procedural risks, complications and optimal treatment strategy before, during and after the procedure. Before a percutanous coronary intervention, patients with known allergies to iodinated contrast dye should be pretreated with oral corticosteroids and H1-receptor blockers. Diabetic patients as well as patients with renal failure need special care. Hydration is crucial for patients with renal insufficiency in order to minimise the risk of contrast nephropathy. Metformin therapy should be discontinued before the procedure in patients with renal failure in order to avoid lactic acidosis, and it should be reinstituted after the procedure only when normal serum creatine level is confirmed. Double antiplatelet therapy (aspirin plus clopidogrel) should be initiated at least six hours before the procedure. While aspirin therapy after the procedure is life long, the duration of clopidogrel therapy depends on the type of implanted stent (in patients with bare stents implanted clopidogrel should be taken at least 3 - 4 weeks post procedural, and in patients with drug-eluting stents implanted clopidogrel should be taken at least 6 - 12 months after the procedure due to in-stent restenosis prevention). Patients who experience typical anginal pain in a period of one to eight month after percutaneous coronary revascularization are likely to have restenosis, and they should be reevaluated with stress echocardiography and/or repeated coronary angiography.

Early studies suggested interactions between statins and clopidogrel. Based on the outcome and platelet data, there is now huge evidence of no interactions between statins and buy plavix online 75 to 300 mg clopidogrel; however, data with 600-mg loading are lacking. In a pre-specified analysis of the EXCELSIOR cohort, we investigated the interaction between statins, especially cytochrome P4503A4-metabolized atorvastatin and simvastatin, and the antiplatelet effects of a 600-mg loading dose of clopidogrel. We analyzed 1,395 patients scheduled for coronary angiography (CA). Patients received clopidogrel 600 mg at least two hours before CA and 75 mg daily thereafter in case of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Statin medication on admission was continued unaltered until discharge. Platelet function was assessed by optical aggregometry and flow cytometry of adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-stimulated surface expression of CD62P, CD63 and PAC-1 before clopidogrel and immediately before CA. Residual platelet aggregation (RPA) after addition of ADP 5 muM was similar irrespective of statin treatment at baseline (p = 0.968). RPA at CA was 46.2 +/- 16.8% in patients without statin (n = 682), 45.5 +/- 17.0% in patients with atorvastatin (n = 255), 45.8 +/- 16.3% with simvastatin (n = 335), 47.3 +/- 14.9% with fluvastatin (n = 42) and 45.9 +/- 16.2% with pravastatin (n = 81; p = 0.962). Consistent results were obtained by flow cytometry. In patients with PCI (n = 553), the one-year incidence of death, myocardial infarction and target lesion reintervention did not differ between cohorts stratified according to statin co-medication (p = 0.645). Thus, peri-interventional atorvastatin and simvastatin had no effect on the antiplatelet activity of a loading dose of clopidogrel 600 mg and did not affect clinical outcome after PCI.

During follow-up (561.7+/-251.4 days), 15 patients (1.14%) developed stent thrombosis between day 1 to day 657. Stent thrombosis occurred in seven patients (1.39%) on triple antiplatelet therapy and four patients (0.49%) on dual antiplatelet therapy (p=NS) within the first six months after stenting. Six months and later, after stent implantation, one patient (0.25%) developed stent buy plavix online thrombosis in the cilostazol group, and three (0.47%) in the clopidogrel group (p=NS).

A strategy combining percutaneous coronary angioplasty followed by valvular and/or coronary surgery was recently proposed as an alternative to the classical surgical only approach. The aim of this study was buy plavix online to assess the feasibility and the results of such a combined strategy with the two procedures performed the same day. The population comprised 34 patients including 17 with valvular disease and revascularisable coronary lesions (15 symptomatic severe aortic stenoses and two acute mitral insufficiencies) plus 17 multitrunk coronary patients without valvular disease but with an indication for revascularisation. Angioplasty was performed several hours prior to surgery and a loading dose of 300mg clopidogrel was administered immediately postoperatively; all patients were on aspirin before the procedure. The average age was 67 +/- 11 years, NYHA class 2.3 +/- 0.7, angina 73%, LVEF 58 +/- 10%. Single coronary artery disease was present in 26%, two vessel disease in 35% and three vessel disease in 39%. The success rate for angioplasty plus stent was 98%. 60 stents were active. Bypasses were exclusively arterial (left or right internal mammary arteries). We observed 4 in-hospital deaths, one of which was due to an infarct and three due to extra-cardiac causes (1 non-cardiogenic acute respiratory distress syndrome, 1 respiratory tract infection and 1 pyelonephritis). Further surgery was necessary in 4 cases: for haemorrhage and one episode of digestive tract haemorrhage. There were no additional deaths, coronary events nor haemorrhage at the end of an average follow-up of 15 +/- 6 months. The results of this combined strategy are encouraging in this population and merit further evaluation in a prospective study.

Coronary heart disease (CHD) and atrial fibrillation (AF) commonly occur together. This presents challenges for the clinician treating patients with CHD, who require antiplatelet therapy and patients with AF, who require oral anticoagulant therapy. We have reviewed PubMed and SCOPUS to identify relevant guidelines, randomised clinical trials and registry studies and clinical trials presented at international meetings, and where necessary, clinical trial protocols to identify and critically analyze all relevant trials in which combinations of oral anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents in patients with AF and CHD have been evaluated. The available evidence on the efficacy and safety of combined oral anticoagulants and anti platelet agents was reviewed for the AF patient in three clinical scenarios: 1) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI); 2) after an acute coronary syndrome without PCI; and 3) in stable CHD. In each the clinical scenarios evaluated, there is limited clinical trial evidence to guide clinical management. Guidelines to help the clinician choose the right combinations of warfarin, clopidogrel and aspirin and the duration of treatment have been published, but they are based on a limited evidence base. There is even less evidence to guide the use of new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in combination with the new P2Y12 antiplatelet agents. In each clinical scenario, the risks of coronary artery or stent thrombosis in CHD and risks of stroke in AF need to be carefully balanced against the risks of bleeding. We make recommendations for management based on the evidence which is available at this time and indicate the many gaps which are currently being addressed by randomized clinical trials. buy plavix online

In the nationwide analysis, 6.1%, 1.0%, and 20.8% of the clopidogrel-treated patients were exposed to concomitant use of CYP3A4 inhibitors, CYP3A4 inducers, and atorvastatin, respectively. In the survival analysis, the adjusted hazard ratio for overall mortality was 2.29 (P < 0.001) for CYP3A4 inducer users and 0.74 (P = 0.003) for atorvastatin users compared with controls (patients receiving clopidogrel without interacting medication). CYP3A4 inhibitor use seemed to prevent from thrombosis: HR 0.67, P < 0.001. The hospitalizations due to bleedings were rarer in atorvastatin and CYP3A4 inhibitor groups compared with controls. Thrombosis complications leading to hospitalizations were more often seen in the atorvastatin Mysoline Pill group than in the control group.

In ACUITY, 13819 patients with moderate and high-risk ACS were studied; patients transferred from an outside hospital were excluded from the present analysis, given uncertain preadmission antiplatelet status. Endpoints included major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE: death, myocardial infarction, or unplanned revascularization), major bleeding, and net adverse clinical events (NACE). Among 11313 study patients, 31 % were naive for antiplatelet agent, 49% were receiving aspirin alone, and 20% were on dual antiplatelet therapy. Chronic antiplatelet users were older and had a higher risk profile. After adjusting for baseline differences, chronic antiplatelet therapy (single or dual) was not associated with an increased incidence of 30-day MACE, bleeding, or NACE. However, patients on chronic aspirin or dual antiplatelet therapy at presentation had significantly higher 1-year rates of MACE [odds ratio (95% confidence interval) = 1.17 (1.01–1.36), P = 0.03 and 1.29 (1.02–1.64), P = 0.03, respectively]. Patients presenting on dual antiplatelet therapy had significantly greater adjusted MACE at 1-year than those on aspirin alone [odds ratio (95% confidence interval) = 1.34 (1.15–1.56), P < 0.0001].

The key role in platelet aggregation is played by the platelet ADP receptor P2Y12, which is the target for antiaggregant drugs, clopidogrel and ticlopidine. At present, only sporadic data on genetic variants of platelet ADP receptor P2Y12 are available from literature, and their association with thromboembolic and cardiovascular diseases still remains obscure. Analysis of the group of subjects with high platelet reactivity resulted in identification of two nucleotide substitutions, C18T and G36T, in the coding region of the P2Y12 gene. The frequency of the P2Y12 T1 8 allele was higher in control group than in the group of patients survived from myocardial infarction at the age under 45 years (39% versus 28%, respectively, P = 0.04). Moreover, in the T18 carriers, platelet aggregation activity was lower than in the carriers of the wild-type genotype (0.84 +/- 0.05% versus 1.01 +/- 0.08%, respectively, P = 0.03). In the group of patients with early myocardial infarctions, a tendency towards the increased frequency of 16T allele in comparison with control group (20 and 12%, respectively, P = 0.07) was observed. The rate of ADP-induced platelet aggregation in the carriers of 16T allele from the control group was somewhat higher than in the subjects with the GG36 genotype (1.31 +/- 0.16% versus 1.12 +/- 0.06%, respectively, P = 0.07). The nucleotide substitutions identified were in absolute disequilibrium, i.e., allele T18 conformed to allele G36. On the contrary, allele C18 conformed to allele T36. Haplotype T18G36 was found to be responsible for the decreased risk of myocardial infarction and decreased platelet reactivity. It is suggested that polymorphisms of the P2Y12 gene identified can be used for determination of the risk group for myocardial infarction in the young males.

Gastrointestinal bleeding occurred in 18 (3.5%) of 519 consecutive patients with STEMI undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Univariate predictors of gastrointestinal bleeding were previous gastrointestinal bleeding (33% vs 4%, P < .001), impaired renal function (89% vs 37%, P<.001), Killip class IV at presentation (61% vs 18%, P<.001), higher peak creatinine kinase level (mean [SD], 3801.6 [3280.2] vs 2721.3 [2286.6] IU/L, P=.05), and mechanical ventilator support (44% vs 12%, P<.001). Coprescription of proton-pump inhibitors did not reduce the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding (22.2% vs 13.4%, P=.22). Multivariate analysis showed an odds ratio (95% confidence interval) for gastrointestinal bleeding of 22.1 (5.6-86.89, P<.001) for previous gastrointestinal bleeding, 6.74 (1.30-34.89, P=.02) for impaired renal function, and 4.68 (1.35-16.2, P=.01) for Killip class IV at presentation. Gastrointestinal bleeding was associated with longer intensive care unit stay (mean [SD], 5.4 [6.7] vs 3.6 [3.6] days, P=.04), and higher in-hospital (44% vs 9%, P<.001) and overall (44% vs 13%, P<.001) mortality rate.

Antiplatelet drug therapy represents the cornerstone of treatment for cardiovascular atherothrombotic disease processes. Dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and oral ADP-receptor antagonists such as clopidogrel are currently the standard care for prevention of ischemic events in patients with acute coronary syndrome and who are undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. However, despite the clinical benefit associated with clopidogrel therapy, this drug has several limitations, including a broad interindividual response variability, drug-drug interactions, slow onset of action and irreversible platelet inhibition, emphasizing the need for novel P2Y(12)-receptor antagonists. Elinogrel (PRT060128) is a reversible, potent and competitive inhibitor of the P2Y(12) receptor with a fast onset and offset of action that can be administered by both oral and intravenous routes and rapidly achieves near complete platelet inhibition. Preclinical and early-phase clinical testing have shown promising results with this novel compound, which awaits further testing in outcome-driven clinical trials. This article provides an overview of the current level of knowledge regarding elinogrel, focusing on its pharmacologic properties and preclinical and early-phase clinical development.

Metabolic syndrome is associated with intravascular inflammation, as determined by increased levels of inflammatory biomarkers and an increased risk of ischemic atherothrombotic events. Evidence suggests that atherothrombosis and intravascular inflammation share predictive biomarkers, including high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, CD40 ligand, P-selectin, and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide. Patients who had metabolic syndrome were randomized to receive clopidogrel 75 mg/day plus aspirin 81 mg/day (n = 89) or placebo plus aspirin 81 mg/day (n = 92) for 9 weeks to assess the efficacy of each treatment in suppression of inflammatory markers. Change from baseline in the levels of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, CD40 ligand, P-selectin, and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide at 6 weeks was assessed to evaluate each treatment. There was a significant difference at Week 6 in model-adjusted CD40-ligand levels in favor of clopidogrel plus aspirin compared with placebo plus aspirin in both the intent-to-treat population (difference between least-squares means = -186.5; 95% confidence interval, -342.3 to -30.8; P = 0.02) and the per-protocol population (P = 0.05). No significant differences were observed between the treatment arms for high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, P-selectin, and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide. There were no deaths or serious adverse events in either treatment arm. Data from this study suggest that clopidogrel can decrease the expression of the CD40-ligand biomarker.

Thirteen patients were studied at baseline, 3, 5, and 7 days after discontinuation of clopidogrel. P(2)Y(12) determinations were performed using the VerifyNow(®) assay (Accumetrics, San Diego, CA, USA), and clot closure times with stimulation by collagen/epinephrine and collagen/adenosine diphosphate using the PFA-100(®) (Platelet Function Analyzer, Siemens Diagnostics, Deerfield, IL, USA). Repeated-measures ANOVA was used to evaluate P(2)Y(12) platelet reaction units, PFA-100 closure times, and per cent P(2)Y(12) inhibition values. Wilcoxon's signed-rank test was used to compare the frequencies of ≥30%, 11-29%, and ≤10% platelet inhibition between the baseline and subsequent sampling points after discontinuation of clopidogrel.

Prevention of intracranial stent thrombosis with dual-antiplatelet therapy is widely used in neuroendovascular procedures. However, the rising incidence of inadequate platelet inhibition with clopidogrel may increase complications following stent placement, especially with newer devices that possess a larger total metal surface area. While there are recent reports of prasugrel as an alternative to clopidogrel, there is no clinical evidence in neurointerventional patients regarding the use of a lower maintenance dose as an alternative strategy to gain adequate platelet inhibition while possibly reducing the risk of bleeding. We present 6-month efficacy and safety outcomes of two patients undergoing elective pipeline embolisation that were found to have inadequate platelet response to clopidogrel and subsequently transitioned to prasugrel 5 mg daily for the prevention of stent thrombosis.

With the increasing diffusion of percutaneous interventions (PCI), surgeons are often faced with the problem of operating on patients under dual antiplatelet treatment. Replacing dual antiplatelet regiment with low molecular weight heparin may expose to the abrupt thrombosis of coronary stent and massive myocardial infarction. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that abdominal operations can be safely performed under dual antiplatelet treatment. Eleven patients underwent 5 colectomies, 3 nefrectomies, 2 gastrectomies and 1 hysterectomy under aspirin and plavix without any significant perioperative hemorrhage. These preliminary results show that abdominal operations can be safely performed under dual antiplatelet regimen.
