A Study to Compare the Safety of Rivaroxaban Versus Acetylsalicylic Acid in Addition to Either Clopidogrel or Ticagrelor Therapy in Participants With Acute Coronary Syndrome

2015-06-02 23:41:19 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to estimate the risk of bleeding with rivaroxaban, compared with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA), in addition to a single antiplatelet/ platelet adenosine diphosphate P2Y12 receptor antagonist (P2Y12 inhibitor agent: clopidogrel or ticagrelor), in participants with a recent acute coronary syndrome (ACS: including ST segment elevation myocardial infarction [STEMI] and non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome [NSTE-ACS]).


This is a prospective, randomized (the study drug is assigned by chance), double-blind (neither physician nor participant knows the treatment that the participant receives), active-controlled (study in which the experimental treatment or procedure is compared to a standard treatment or procedure), parallel group (each group of participants will be treated at the same time), multicenter (when more than one hospital or medical school team work on a medical research study) study in participants with a recent ACS (STEMI or NSTE-ACS). All the eligible participants receiving background treatment of ASA plus clopidogrel (Stratum 1) or ASA plus ticagrelor (Stratum 2) will be randomly assigned to either receive ASA or rivaroxaban on background of P2Y12 receptor antagonists treatment. This study will include 3 phases: Screening Phase (up to 10 days, before study start on Day 1), Double-blind Treatment Phase (up to either 180 days after randomization of the last enrolled participant in the study or Day 360, whichever occurs earlier), and Follow-up Phase (up to 30 days). Participants' safety will be monitored throughout the study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.


Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.

An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
