The TAXUS Libertē Post-Approval Study is an FDA-mandated prospective, multi-center study designed to collect real-world safety and clinical outcomes in approximately 4,200 patients receiving one or more TAXUS Liberté Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents and prasugrel as part of a dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) drug regimen.
This study will also contribute patient data to an FDA-requested and industry-sponsored research study that will evaluate the optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT Study).
The TAXUS Libertē Post-Approval Study is an FDA-mandated prospective, multi-center study designed to collect real-world safety and clinical outcomes in approximately 4,200 patients receiving one or more TAXUS Liberté Paclitaxel-Eluting Stents and prasugrel as part of a dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) drug regimen. This is a consecutively-enrolled study with patient follow-up through 5 years post index procedure. This study also will contribute patient data to an FDA-requested and industry-sponsored research study that will evaluate the optimal duration of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT Study). To facilitate this patient data contribution, patients will be assigned to patient groups based upon their co-morbidities and stented lesions identified post index procedure.
All enrolled patients who have been treated with the TAXUS Liberté Stent will be assigned to 12 months of open-label prasugrel treatment and aspirin. Upon completion of the open-label period, patients who are clear of events at 12 months post index procedure will be randomized 1:1 to either a placebo or prasugrel for an additional 18 months of treatment, followed by a 3-month period of observation. After this 3 month observation period, patients may receive open-label thienopyridine of choice at the discretion of the treating physician for the remainder of the study. All patients will receive aspirin therapy throughout the course of the study.

Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) may allow accelerated and functional endothelialization of stents, theoretically reducing late stent complications as well reducing the duration of DAPT. In a pilot...
This matched-cohort retrospective study investigated the long-term (9-year) safety and efficacy outcomes of patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and primary percutaneous co...
The optimal treatment of in-stent restenosis (ISR) remains unknown. This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of a paclitaxel coated balloon compared to a 2nd generation sirolimus eluting stent in ...
We investigated the safety and efficacy of the bioabsorbable polymer-coated, everolimus-eluting coronary stent (SYNERGY) stent in a real-world study population with acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
The placement of a self-expandable metal stent (SEMS) is widely used in patients with unresectable malignant biliary obstructions, but SEMSs are susceptible to occlusion by tumor ingrowth or overgr...
Genus of coniferous yew trees or shrubs, several species of which have medicinal uses. Notable is the Pacific yew, Taxus brevifolia, which is used to make the anti-neoplastic drug taxol (PACLITAXEL).
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
A cyclodecane isolated from the bark of the Pacific yew tree, TAXUS BREVIFOLIA. It stabilizes MICROTUBULES in their polymerized form leading to cell death.
