Plavix, Prasugrel and Drug Eluting Stents Pilot Trial

2014-08-27 03:14:34 | BioPortfolio


- The purpose of this study is to determine the level of inhibition of platelet activation of an approved thienopyridine(clopidogrel or prasugrel) and aspirin regimen in the setting of drug eluting coronary stent implantation.

- In subjects with high residual levels of platelet reactivity after receiving either a maintenance or loading dose of either clopidogrel or prasugrel, a cross over of thienopyridine treatment to the alternate medication will occur.

- The study tests the hypothesis that adequate platelet inhibition will occur in subjects who have high levels of platelet reactivity and are subsequently switched from clopidogrel to prasugrel(loading or maintenance dose) without increased episodes of bleeding or MACE events at discharge and 30 days post Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.

Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.

The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
