Clopidogrel administration is essential in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, in patients with previous stroke, in patients under chronic hemodialysis via fistulae and in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation if coumarin administration is not a viable option. Patients with chronic renal failure present lower clopidogrel response compared to those with normal renal function. Additionally, hemodialysis via the dialysis filter causes a decrease in glycoprotein platelet receptors, potentially associated with thienopyridine hyporesponsiveness. Clopidogrel resistant patients as assessed by VerifyNow P2Y12(Accumetrics)will be randomized in 1:1 fashion to prasugrel 10mg/day or clopidogrel 150mg/day. On day 15±2 days a crossover directly to the alternate treatment group will be carried out, without an interventing washout period. All patients will undergo platelet reactivity assessment, documentation of major adverse cardiac events and documentation of any serious adverse events(stroke, bleeding)at day 15 and day 30.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study will compare the effect of a prasugrel 10-mg maintenance dose with a clopidogrel 75-mg maintenance dose on platelet activity, approximately 1 week after the first dose of study ...
The primary objective of this study is to assess the pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of clopidogrel and prasugrel when administered after a single subcutaneous (s.c.) dose of ACT-246475 in he...
This study will evaluate the use of a prasugrel 60 mg loading dose administered during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with and without a prior loading dose (LD)of clopidogrel on ...
All patients undergoing elective or sub-acute PCI are screened by MULTIPLATE test for clopidogrel low-responsiveness after receiving 600 mg clopidogrel the day before. A cut off value has...
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, cross-over study to compare the pharmacodynamic response in subjects with Acute Coronary Syndrome receiving a 10-mg maintenance dose (MD) o...
High on-treatment platelet reactivity (HPR) under clopidogrel treatment is frequently observed in hemodialysis (HD) patients. In such patients, 10mg of prasugrel has reportedly inhibited platelet reac...
Prasugrel was shown to inhibit platelet activity more rapidly and consistently than clopidogrel. We compared the effects of prasugrel and clopidogrel on residual thrombus burden assessed by optical co...
In the Targeted Platelet Inhibition to Clarify the Optimal Strategy to Medically Manage Acute Coronary Syndromes (TRILOGY ACS) trial of patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome m...
Prevention of myocardial injury is an essential issue in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). We compared the incidence of myocardial injury after loading doses of clopidogrel versus prasugrel in...
Ticagrelor and prasugrel are recommended as first line therapy in patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS). However, patients with anemia are commonly treated with clopidogrel in routine clinical ...
Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.
Long-term maintenance hemodialysis in the home.
The combination of hemodialysis and hemofiltration either simultaneously or sequentially. Convective transport (hemofiltration) may be better for removal of larger molecular weight substances and diffusive transport (hemodialysis) for smaller molecular weight solutes.
Solutions prepared for hemodialysis. The composition of the pre-dialysis solution may be varied in order to determine the effect of solvated metabolites on anoxia, malnutrition, acid-base balance, etc. Of principal interest are the effect of the choice of buffers (e.g., acetate or carbonate), the addition of cations (Na+, K+, Ca2+), and addition of carbohydrates (glucose).
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
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 ...
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
