The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of high dose clopidogrel as the antiplatelet therapy on inhibition of platelet aggregation in Japanese patients scheduled for percutaneous coronary intervention due to ischemic heart disease.
Dual antiplatelet therapy of aspirin and thienopyridine is used to prevent stent thrombosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Clopidogrel is the most popular thienopyridine. Following the 300mg clopidogrel loading dose (LD) at first day, patients take 75mg maintenance dose (MD) to inhibit platelet aggregation after coronary stent implantation. 600mg high LD inhibit platelet aggregation more rapidly and strongly than standard LD and prevent thrombotic event around the PCI. Similarly high MD inhibit platelet aggregation more strongly. Interindividual variability of clopidogrel anti-platelet effect has been reported. In Japanese, there are many non or hyporesponders to clopidogrel compared to the Western population. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of high dose clopidogrel as the antiplatelet therapy on inhibition of platelet aggregation in Japanese patients scheduled for PCI due to ischemic heart disease.

Laboratory clopidogrel resistance is associated with adverse atherothrombotic events in patients with coronary artery disease. In the proposed study we wish to prospectively assess the eff...
The purpose of the study is to determine, whether the resistance to clopidogrel could be affected by higher doses of this drug, or by replacement of clopidogrel with another ADP-antagonist...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether administration of 150 mg clopidogrel is effective in reducing the one-year incidence of thromboischemic events in patients with high on-clo...
Continuing high dose clopidogrel treatment after elective PCI decreased adverse cardiac events in patients with clopidogrel resistance
The purpose of this study is to determine that for patients who received stent implantation but present low response to regular anti-platelet treatment, whether 1-month intensified anti-pl...
Antiplatelet therapy with clopidogrel is recommended to reduce cardiovascular events in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD); however, clopidogrel efficacy has not been adequately studied in ...
The clinical significance of the laboratory-based phenomenon of clopidogrel hypo-responsiveness and platelet reactivity associated with acute myocardial infarction, despite chronic clopidogrel therapy...
P2Y12 inhibitors, including clopidogrel have become an integral part of treatment for patients receiving coronary stent placement as a result of stable coronary artery disease or acute coronary syndro...
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...
Binding of clopidogrel to serum albumin has been characterized in the presence and absence of linoleic acid by equilibrium dialysis method where ranitidine and diazepam were used as specific probes. O...
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 complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
