The incidence of cardiovascular diseases is still high and further efforts should be done in primary prevention. The main objective is to quantify the burden of subclinical atherosclerosis using non-invasive techniques,and to study the impact of this assessment and consequent treatment in the progression of atherosclerosis and in the incidence of cardiovascular diseases.
We will perform non-invasive techniques (carotid Intima-Media Thickness, CAC score and ankle-brachial index) to individuals at intermediate cardiovascular risk.With these results, we will classify participants in: no atherosclerosis, mild, moderate and severe atherosclerosis, and therapeutic targets will be set according to pre-defined algorithms. The end-point will be the course of atherosclerosis measured by cIMT/CAC score (2 years) and the incidence of CVD at 5 years of follow-up.

The purposes of the study are to analyse the cross-section data of secondary stroke prevention in China and to carry out a standard medical management including medicine and interactive ed...
1000 patients with atherosclerosis of lower limbs are examined to evaluate the activity of the platelets during the standard treatment, including aspirin. A minor group will receive clopid...
This study will examine the effect of statin and niacin therapy on carotid plaque biomarkers
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the combination of clopidogrel with aspirin prevents the development of blockages (atherosclerosis) in vein grafts one year after coronary...
In patients with coronary artery disease and a LDL-C level between 2.5 mmol/L and 5.0 mmol/L on a stable (> 4 weeks) statin starting dose (simvastatin 20 mg or atorvastatin 10 mg), invest...
Cerebral infarction causes severe morbidity and mortality. Most patients with cerebral infarction should take antiplatelet drugs daily, so the effects of those drugs on the regeneration of the brain n...
Platelet function testing may be warranted to assess response to aspirin and clopidogrel.
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...
Accelerated atherosclerosis in patients suffering from diabetes represents a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The aim of present study was to investigate the protective effects conferred by ato...
Aspirin is the prophylactic antiplatelet drug of choice for people with cardiovascular disease. Adding a second antiplatelet drug to aspirin may produce additional benefit for people at high risk and ...
A pharmaceutical preparation of ezetimibe and simvastatin that is used in the treatment of HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS.
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)
