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...
Among patients at high risk for or with established cardiovascular disease (ie, history of peripheral artery disease, stroke, or coronary artery disease without a coronary stent), is the addition of c...
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...
Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and clopidogrel is a recommended treatment for coronary artery disease (CAD) patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to reduce the ra...
Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAT), most commonly with aspirin and Clopidogrel, is the standard of care for intracranial stenting, including flow diversion. Clopidogrel response varies by individual.
Measurement of P-selectin on activated platelets as a means of measuring platelet function utilizing the technology described here has the advantage of not requiring immediate access to specialist equ...
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...
