Aspirin was reported to induce hemolysis in patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency on some occasions, while still widely uesd for stroke prevention. The SAST trial is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of aspirin in patients this enzyme disorder.The primary purpose of the trial is to evaluate the hemolytic effects of a 3-month regimen of aspirin 100mg/d versus a 3-month regimen of clopidogrel 75mg/d.
This SAST trial is a prospective, multicenter, randomized, double-blind trial.440 acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients with G6PD deficiency will be randomized to receive a 3-month regimen of aspirin 100mg/d or clopidogrel 75mg/d. The primary end point is the proportion of protocol-defined hemolysis at 90 days. Protocol-defined hemolysis is defined as one or more of the following conditions: a) Hemoglobin level declined ≥2.5 g/dL from baseline, meanwhile ruling out bleeding events. b) Hemoglobin level declined ≥25% from baseline, meanwhile ruling out bleeding events. c) Clinically relevant hemolytic events, could manifested as fatigue, back pain, anemia, dark urine and jaundice. The study consists of five visits including the day of randomization, day 4, day10±3days, day27±3days, day90±7days.

This study will evaluate a new and safe testing method for identifying medicines that can cause problems in glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficient individuals. We are looking ...
This study will explore the effect of different doses of aspirin on the effects of double-dose or standard dose clopidogrel.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether adjunction of intravenous anticoagulant therapy (enoxaparin, HNF, bivalirudin) to antiaggregation with clopidogrel and aspirin improves in...
To compare the effect of increased dosing of clopidogrel and adding cilostazol to standard dose of clopidogrel after the insertion of drug-eluting stent in patients with clopidogrel resist...
In the ASCET study, 1000 patients with documented coronary heart disease will be randomized to either continued treatment with aspirin 160 mg/d or change to clopidogrel 75mg/d. Clinical en...
Stroke is a common condition after a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or minor ischemic stroke (IS). Adding clopidogrel to aspirin may yield more beneficial outcomes than aspirin mono-therapy; meanwhil...
Several clinical trials reported that clopidogrel was superior to aspirin in secondary stroke prevention by reducing the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE). We aimed to compare the eff...
Primaquine is recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) for radical treatment of Plasmodium vivax malaria. This drug is known to provoke acute hemolytic anemia in individuals with glucose-6-p...
Glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is the most common enzymatic disorder of red blood cells that cause hemolytic anemia. Some anticancer drugs are reported to trigger oxidative stress...
Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) may be markers of intracerebral bleeding risk in patients receiving antithrombotic drugs. This study aimed to analyze CMBs and white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) in patie...
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent that is less effective than equal doses of ASPIRIN in relieving pain and reducing fever. However, individuals who are hypersensitive to ASPIRIN may tolerate sodium salicylate. In general, this salicylate produces the same adverse reactions as ASPIRIN, but there is less occult gastrointestinal bleeding. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p120)
Asthmatic adverse reaction (e.g., BRONCHOCONSTRICTION) to conventional NSAIDS including aspirin use.
A drug combination of aspirin and dipyridamole that functions as a PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR, used to prevent THROMBOSIS and STROKE in TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK patients.
The prototypical analgesic used in the treatment of mild to moderate pain. It has anti-inflammatory and antipyretic properties and acts as an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase which results in the inhibition of the biosynthesis of prostaglandins. Aspirin also inhibits platelet aggregation and is used in the prevention of arterial and venous thrombosis. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p5)
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN B 6 in the diet, characterized by dermatitis, glossitis, cheilosis, and stomatitis. Marked deficiency causes irritability, weakness, depression, dizziness, peripheral neuropathy, and seizures. In infants and children typical manifestations are diarrhea, anemia, and seizures. Deficiency can be caused by certain medications, such as isoniazid.
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
Enzymes are proteins that catalyze (i.e., increase the rates of) chemical reactions. In enzymatic reactions, the molecules at the beginning of the process, called substrates, are converted into different molecules, called products. Almost all chemical re...
