Clopidogrel resistance (CR) or low-responsiveness is associated with increased risk of ischemic events and can be detected by laboratory tests. This multicenter, randomized study is aimed to explore the efficacy and safety of intensive antiplatelet therapy (i.e. double clopidogrel maintenance dose and/or additional cilostazol)for patients with CR after coronary stenting.

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...
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...
Cilostazol is an kind of oral antiplatelet agent with a rapid onset of action that selectively inhibits phosphodiesterase III, a mechanism different from adenosine diphosphate (ADP) recept...
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...
Antiplatelet therapy with aspirin, clopidogrel, and dipyridamole versus clopidogrel alone or aspirin and dipyridamole in patients with acute cerebral ischaemia (TARDIS): a randomised, open-label, phase 3 superiority trial.
Intensive antiplatelet therapy with three agents might be more effective than guideline treatment for preventing recurrent events in patients with acute cerebral ischaemia. We aimed to compare the saf...
Clustering of ABCB1 and CYP2C19 Genetic Variants Predicts Risk of Major Bleeding and Thrombotic Events in Elderly Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome Receiving Dual Antiplatelet Therapy with Aspirin and Clopidogrel.
The clinical efficacy of clopidogrel in secondary prevention of vascular events is hampered by marked inter-patient variability in drug response, which partially depends on genetic make-up. The aim of...
Patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) and acute coronary syndromes have a greater level of platelet aggregation and a poor response to oral antiplatelet drugs. Clopidogrel is still widely used in clini...
Platelet function testing may be warranted to assess response to aspirin and clopidogrel.
Dual antithrombotic therapy comprising a vitamin K antagonist (VKA) plus clopidogrel reduces the incidence of major bleeding compared with triple therapy (VKA+clopidogrel+aspirin) in acute coronary sy...
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 salicylate derivative and anti-inflammatory analgesic with actions and side effects similar to those of ASPIRIN.
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
