A Study Comparing the Efficacy and Safety of Intracoronary Stenting With or Without Abciximab, an Anti-Platelet Therapy, and Conventional Coronary Angioplasty With Abciximab

2014-08-27 03:46:57 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of intracoronary stenting with or without abciximab, an anti-platelet therapy, and conventional coronary angioplasty with abciximab in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention.


This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of intracoronary stenting with or without abciximab, an anti-platelet therapy, and conventional coronary angioplasty with abciximab in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Patients will be randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups: coronary angioplasty plus abciximab, intracoronary stent plus abciximab, or intracoronary stent plus placebo. The primary measures of effectiveness will be a 30-day composite, clinical outcome as determined by the number of deaths, myocardial infarctions, or urgent repeat revascularizations. Please see attached results.

Patients will receive one of three different treatments: Coronary angioplasty plus abciximab; Intracoronary stent plus abciximab; or Intracoronary stent plus placebo.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.

The new and thickened layer of scar tissue that forms on a PROSTHESIS, or as a result of vessel injury especially following ANGIOPLASTY or stent placement.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.

Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
