Evaluation and Comparison of Several Point-of-Care Platelet Function Tests in Predicting Clinical Outcomes in Clopidogrel Pre-Treated Patients Undergoing Elective PCI.

Summary

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the level of Platelet Inhibition as assessed with five point-of-care platelet function assays correlates with clinical (periprocedural) outcomes such as Acute Myocardial Infarction, death, Target Vessel revascularization and/or stroke in patients undergoing elective PCI.

Description

Antiplatelet agents—aspirin, thienopyridines, and platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa (GpIIb/IIIa) inhibitors—have become cornerstones in the treatment of ischemic heart disease for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)1,2. However, several studies have demonstrated with the use of platelet function assays that subgroups of patients receiving either aspirin, clopidogrel, or both fail to produce the anticipated antiplatelet effect3-5. Consequently, terms like “aspirin-resistance” and “clopidogrel resistance” have been introduced in literature.

Light transmittance platelet aggregometry is generally considered to be the gold standard for determining platelet function, but its relevance to in vivo platelet function is questionable and the logistically demands of the method make it impossible to use in daily practice. In addition, aggregation is just one of several important platelet functions. The introduction of several point-of-care assays may be the key to the widespread clinical use of platelet function testing to identify so called anti-platelet therapy low-responders. However, whether these point-of-care platelet function tests provide predictive value (i.e. correlate with clinical outcomes) and the allocation of the “best” or most suitable point-of-care Platelet function assay to determine the level of inhibition of platelet function remains to be established.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A potent antagonist of CALCIUM CHANNELS that is highly selective for VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE. It is effective in the treatment of chronic stable angina pectoris, hypertension, and congestive cardiac failure.

ANGINA PECTORIS or angina-like chest pain with a normal coronary arteriogram and positive EXERCISE TEST. The cause of the syndrome is unknown. While its recognition is of clinical importance, its prognosis is excellent. (Braunwald, Heart Disease, 4th ed, p1346; Jablonski Dictionary of Syndromes & Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed). It is different from METABOLIC SYNDROME X, a syndrome characterized by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA, that has increased risk for cardiovascular disease.

A beta-adrenergic antagonist used in the treatment of hypertension, angina pectoris, arrhythmias, and anxiety.

A cardioselective beta-1-adrenergic blocker. It is effective in the management of hypertension and angina pectoris.

An adrenergic-beta-2 antagonist that has been used for cardiac arrhythmia, angina pectoris, hypertension, glaucoma, and as an antithrombotic.
