Influence of Esomeprazole on Antiplatelet Action of Clopidogrel Associated With Aspirin

2014-08-27 03:16:09 | BioPortfolio


The investigators examine the influence of esomeprazole versus famotidine on antiplatelet action of clopidogrel associated with aspirin. At least 100 consecutive patients suffering from acute coronary syndrome or undergoing coronary artery stent implantation , who received aspirin (80 - 160 mg/day) and clopidogrel (300 mg loading dose, followed by 75 mg/day or 75mg/day for at least 7 consecutive days), are randomised to receive either esomeprazole 20 mg daily vs famotidine 40 mg daily in a double blinded manner. Clopidogrel effect was tested by measuring residual platelet reactivity (RPR) to ADP by VerifyNow P2Y12 assay (Accumetrics Inc, San Diego, Calif). At baseline, whole blood will be obtained for RPR at least 12 h after clopidogrel loading dose or at least 7 days of maintaince dose. Immediately obtaining the baseline blood, patients will be randomized to receive either esomeprazole (20 mg/day) or famotidine 40 mg/day for 28 days. Double blinding will be performed by encapsulation of study drugs. RPR will be measured again at the 28th day.

The investigators will compare the % inhibition and the P2Y12 reaction Units (PRU) at the 28-day treatment period in the 2 groups.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions


Complex pain syndrome with unknown etiology, characterized by constant or intermittent generalized vulva pain (Generalized vulvodynia) or localized burning sensations in the VESTIBULE area when pressure is applied (Vestibulodynia, or Vulvar Vestibulitis Syndrome). Typically, vulvar tissue with vulvodynia appears normal without infection or skin disease. Vulvodynia impacts negatively on a woman's quality of life as it interferes with sexual and daily activities.

Total number of calories taken in daily whether ingested or by parenteral routes.

A complex systemic syndrome with inflammatory and autoimmune components that affect the skin, fascia, muscle, nerve, blood vessels, lung, and heart. Diagnostic features generally include EOSINOPHILIA, myalgia severe enough to limit usual activities of daily living, and the absence of coexisting infectious, autoimmune or other conditions that may induce eosinophilia. Biopsy of affected tissue reveals a microangiopathy associated with diffuse inflammation involving connective tissue. (From Spitzer et al., J Rheumatol Suppl 1996 Oct;46:73-9; Blackburn WD, Semin Arthritis Rheum 1997 Jun;26(6):788-93)

The use of electronic equipment to observe or record physiologic processes while the patient undergoes normal daily activities.
