We report a case with a hypersensitivity reaction to clopidogrel that resolved after clopidogrel discontinuation and recurred on rechallenge. The reaction included fever, tachycardia, rash and mild angioedema. As an alternative to clopidogrel, the more potent thienopyridine prasugrel was administered without any signs of an allergic reaction in the hours, days and weeks following administration.

Dual antiplatelet treatment (DAPT) with aspirin and clopidogrel is vital after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Clopidogrel and prasugrel act on P2Y12 platelet surface receptors. Both these P2Y12 inhibitors are pro-drugs and depend on cytochrome system of the liver for their conversion to active metabolite. There is growing concern regarding suboptimal response in platelet inhibition by clopidogrel. Verify Now system got approval by Federal Drug Administration, USA, for assessing platelet function as its result is almost comparable to gold standard Light Transmission Aggregometry (LTA). There are no data on the prevalence of clopidogrel resistance in Bangladeshi population. Prasugrel, as an antiplatelet drug, is a newer introduction in this country. This study will show light on the efficacy of these drugs on our population especially in patients who undergo PCI where DAPT is mandatory. A total 120 (60 diabetics) patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS), were alternatively given 600 mg clopidogrel loading dose (LD) followed by 75 mg maintenance dose (MD) daily or 60 mg LD of prasugrel followed by 10 mg MD daily. Five samples of blood were taken at different time intervals over a period of 2 weeks. Measurement of percent inhibition of P2Y12 was done by VerifyNow. Patients who showed less than 20% inhibition (clopidogrel resistant) at any stage were switched to prasugrel. The outcomes of clopidogrel, prasugrel and clopidogrel switched to prasugrel groups were then compared. Nearly half (46.7%) of the patients in the clopidogrel group was found resistant to the drug as opposed to none in the prasugrel group. No difference was found between diabetic and non-diabetic subjects with respect to drug resistance. Intracoronary blood samples showed high degree of platelet inhibition with prasugrel. There was a gradual decline of platelet inhibition over two weeks with prasugrel. Almost fifty percent of the population is clopidogrel resistant in our study. Prasugrel is a much more potent antiplatelet drug and should be preferred in patients undergoing PCI. Prasugrel may also show resistance over time.

Objective of the study is to investigate the role of clotting screen in adult patients presenting with epistaxis. The study is a prospective case series done in a teaching hospital in the Northeast of Scotland. Prospective data was collected for 100 consecutive patients with epistaxis admitted to the Department of Otolaryngology over 1 year (2006-2007 August). The demographics, co-morbidities, long-term medications and blood test results were noted for these patients. A retrospective audit of all patients attending the Emergency Department (ED) with epistaxis during the same study period was also performed. The following were measured: frequency of clotting screen performed in patients with epistaxis; the treatment modifying effect of clotting screen results. Of the 100 admitted patients, 45 were male and 55 were female. The majority of them had more than two co-morbidities such as hypertension, ischaemic heart disease and atrial fibrillation. Forty-seven patients were on aspirin, 19 on warfarin and 12 patients on clopidogrel. A clotting screen was done for 80 patients but only 2 patients (2.5%) had an abnormal INR. A total of 356 patients presented to the ED with epistaxis. Of 356 patients, 138 (39%) had their clotting screen checked. Of 138 patients, 42 (30%) were on warfarin. Only 7 patients (7/138 = 5%) had an abnormal result. Our data suggests that routine clotting screen check does not alter the epistaxis management in patients with no risk factors or with stable warfarin dosage. Therefore, routine clotting screen in patients with epistaxis without relevant risk factors is not an evidence-based practice.

The main model predicted bivalirudin and H-GPI patients to survive 11.52 and 11.35 (undiscounted) years on average, respectively, and to accrue 6.26 and 6.17 QALYs. Patient lifetime costs were £267 lower in the bivalirudin strategy (£12 843 vs £13 110). Extensive sensitivity and scenario analyses confirmed these results to be robust. In probabilistic analysis, quality-adjusted survival was higher and costs were lower with bivalirudin in 95.0% of simulation runs. In 99.2%, cost-effectiveness was better than £20 000 per QALY gained. Results from the alternative model were fully consistent.

Compared with standard adjusted dose VKA, new oral anticoagulants were associated with modest reductions in the absolute risk of stroke and major bleeding. People on antiplatelet drugs experienced more strokes compared with anticoagulant drugs without any reduction in bleeding risk. To fully elucidate the comparative benefits and harms of antithrombotic agents across the various subpopulations, rigorously conducted comparative studies or network meta-regression analyses of patient-level data are required.

The impact of antithrombotics on cancer is currently under intense investigation because of the excess of solid cancers in trials after thienopyridines such as TRITON (prasugrel), DAPT (prasugrel and clopidogrel), PAR-1 thrombin antagonist in TRACER (vorapaxar), pyrimidines in PEGASUS (ticagrelor), and in APPRAISE-2 after apixaban. However, whether patient survival after solid cancer (SASC) in antithrombotic trials may be affected is unknown. We matched the 1-year SASC rate in antithrombotic trials reported by Food and Drug Administration with the census averages in Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program by the US National Cancer Institute and World Health Organization (WHO) surveys. The Food and Drug Administration provided the SASC data for 3 trials with similar cancer survival of about 70% for the first year of follow-up in TRITON, APPRAISE-2, and ARISTOTEL. Adjusted cancers in TRITON with SEER (odds ratio 0.92; 95% confidence interval 0.53 to 1.59, p = 0.4351) and WHO (odds ratio 0.99; 95% confidence interval 0.57 to 1.7, p = 1.00) revealed very close if not identical SASC rates in antithrombotic trials compared to epidemiologic census estimates. In conclusion, SASC rates in patients enrolled in antithrombotic trials do not differ from SEER or World Health Organization averages.

Trials were identified in PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, and Cochrane Database searches. We included four randomized, placebo-controlled reports in the meta-analysis. The database consisted of 36, 081 patients on cangrelor compared with clopidogrel or placebo. Major adverse cardiac events (MACE) were defined as the primary efficacy endpoint and major or severe bleeding at 48 hours was defined as the primary safety endpoint. Cangrelor significantly decreased risk of MACE (OR: 0.87, P = 0.002) and stent thrombosis (OR: 0.53, P < 0.001). However, at the same time, an increase in TIMI minor bleeding (OR: 1.49, P = 0.04) and in GUSTO moderate bleeding (OR: 1.43, P = 0.04) were observed by cangrelor.

Aspirin treated pts with NSTEACS (<48 hours from pain onset, Braunwald class IIIb) were included into 2 consecutive studies: 37 pts receiving unfractionated heparin (UFH) were randomized to open TIC (n=19, 500 mg BID for 2 days and 250 mg BID for subsequent 5 days) or no TIC (n=18); 19 pts receiving enoxaparin were randomized to CL (n=10, 300 mg on day 1 and 75 mg/day for subsequent 6 days) or no CL (n=9). At baseline, on days 1, 3, 7 and 14 (7 days after thienopyridines discontinuation) we measured ADP-induced and spontaneous platelet aggregation (PA), levels of prothrombin fragment 1+2 (F1+2), thrombin-antithrombin complex (TAT), von Willebrand factor (vWF), fibrinogen, tissue type plasminogen activator antigen (tPA), plasminogen activator inhibitor activity (PAI) and D-dimer (Dd), and counted platelet number.

This study evaluated the utility of the PFA-100 and the Multiplate analyzer for the assessment of aspirin and clopidogrel effects on platelet function in patients with cardiovascular disease. Platelet function was determined with the PFA-100 using collagen+epinephrine (CEPI) and collagen+adenosine-5'-diphosphate (CADP) cartridges, and with whole blood impedance aggregometry using the Multiplate ASPI and ADP+PG tests (aggregation triggered with arachidonic acid and ADP+ prostaglandin E1, respectively). Four study groups were identified from the 154 patients enrolled: patients without antiplatelet therapy, patients with 100 mg aspirin daily but without clopidogrel treatment, patients with 75 mg clopidogrel daily but without aspirin treatment, and patients with both 100 mg aspirin daily plus 75 mg clopidogrel daily. It was found that the PFA-100 instrument is useful for detection of aspirin but not for detection of a clopidogrel effect, while the Multiplate analyzer is useful for specific detection of both aspirin and clopidogrel effects on platelet function.

The study population included a consecutive cohort of 1019 patients treated with PCI [n = 741 bare-metal stent (BMS) and n = 278 drug-eluting stent (DES)] due to symptomatic coronary artery disease. Residual platelet activity was assessed by adenosine disphosphate (20 micromol/L)-induced PA after 600 mg clopidogrel loading dose. Maximum RPA was measured as peak of aggregation, final RPA was measured 5 min after addition of agonist. The primary endpoint was the occurrence of ST within 3 months defined according to academic research consortium (ARC) criteria. Final and maximum RPA were independent predictors of ST after 3 months. In secondary analysis, the observed effects were independently associated with early ST (HR 1.05, 95% CI 1.01-1.08 and HR 1.05, 95% CI 1.01-1.09, P < 0.01, respectively). However, incidence of 3-month late stent thrombosis (LAT) was not influenced by post-interventional RPA in multivariable analysis.

Antiplatelet therapy with clopidogrel has been shown to reduce major adverse cardiac events in acute coronary syndromes and after percutaneous interventions. This effect is not only buy plavix due to its anti-platelet effect but also possibly due to an anti-inflammatory effect. The effect of clopidogrel cessation after one year of therapy on markers of inflammation has been investigated in diabetics and showed an increase in platelet aggregation as well as hsCRP and surface P-selectin levels. This was an exploratory multicenter prospective open-label single arm study of 98 non-diabetic patients who had received one or more drug eluting stents and were coming to the end of their 12 months course of clopidogrel therapy. The effect of clopidogrel cessation on expression of biomarkers: sCD40L, soluble P-selectin and hsCRP was measured right before clopidogrel cessation (day 0), and subsequently at 1, 2, 3 and 4 weeks after drug withdrawal. A median increase in sCD40L expression from 224 to 324.5 pg/ml was observed between baseline and 4 weeks after clopidogrel cessation, which corresponded to a 39% mean percent change based on an ANCOVA model (P < 0.001). Over the 4 weeks observation period the change in sCD40L expression correlated weakly with soluble P-selectin levels (at 4 weeks Spearman's correlation coefficient = 0.32; P = 0.0024). Increase in P-selectin expression from baseline was statistically significant at week 1 and 2. Conversely, hsCRP level decreased by 21% at 1 week (P = 0.008) and was still reduced by 18% by 4 weeks (P = 0.062). The change in sCD40L expression appeared to vary with the type of drug eluting stent. Patients treated with drug eluting stents at 1 year after implantation display significant increase in sCD40L and decrease in hsCRP after clopidogrel cessation. Further studies should elucidate if this increase in sCD40L levels reflects solely the removal of the inhibitory effects of clopidogrel on platelet activity or rather an increase in pro-inflammatory state. The latter hypothesis may be less likely given decrease in hsCRP levels. Randomized studies are urgently needed to establish potential link of clopidogrel discontinuation and vascular outcomes.

A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database of all blunt traumatic carotid and vertebral artery injuries from August 2003 to April 2013 was performed, and Grade 3 and 4 blunt VA injuries were identified. Grade 3 injuries were defined as stenosis of the vessel greater than 50% or the development of a pseudoaneurysm, and Grade 4 injuries were defined as complete vessel occlusion. Demographic information, radiographic imaging findings, number of imaging sessions performed per individual, length of radiographic follow-up, radiographic outcome at end of follow-up, treatment(s) provided, and documentation of ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack were buy plavix recorded.

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with a fivefold increased risk for stroke due to thromboembolic events. Warfarin remains the standard medical therapy for decades in these patients but is difficult to use safely and conveniently. Chronic warfarin therapy is contraindicated in 14% to 44% of patients with AF who are at risk for stroke. In clinical practice, warfarin is prescribed to only 15% to 60% of patients with AF who are at high risk for thromboembolic events and have no clear contraindication to their use. Alternatives to warfarin include (i) antiplatelet therapy; (ii) new oral anticoagulants; and (iii) exclusion of the left atrial appendage (LAA) as a major embolic source. Dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel was superior to aspirin alone in reducing the risk of stroke in patients unsuitable to warfarin. Furthermore, a number of newer oral anticoagulants are currently under investigation for stroke prevention in AF. Oral direct thrombin or factor Xa inhibitors are in the most advanced stages of development. Given that about 90% of the source of thromboembolism occurs in the LAA in patients with non-valvular AF, occlusion of flow into the LAA may prevent thrombus formation in the appendage and hence reduction of stroke. Recently, several devices have been employed percutaneously with encouraging results in selected patients buy plavix . Current review summarizes the latest clinical trial data pertinent to dual-antiplatelet therapy, several newer antithrombotic agents and LAA occlusion.

Concomitant SRN (n=266) significantly (p=0.008) enhanced platelet inhibition after DAPT (251.6 ± 80.9PRU) when compared (232.1 ± 73.5PRU) to the SRN-free (n=192) patients. Multivariate logistic regression analysis with the cut-off value of 253 PRU for defining heightened platelet reactivity confirmed independent correlation of more potent platelet inhibition buy plavix during DAPT and use of SRN (Relative risk=1.675; Odds ratio [1.059-2.648]; p=0.027). In contrast, statins, calcium-channel blockers, beta blockers, angiotensin receptor blockers, ACE-inhibitors, diuretics, and anti-diabetic agents did not significantly impact platelet inhibition following DAPT.

Recent data suggest the superiority of new adenosine diphosphate (ADP) receptor antagonists compared with clopidogrel in acute coronary syndrome patients. We aimed to assess the risks and benefits of new ADP receptor antagonists in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Relevant studies published through February 28, 2014 were searched and identified buy plavix in the MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane databases. Summary estimates were obtained using a random-effects model. All nine published randomized controlled studies comparing new ADP receptor antagonists with clopidogrel in CAD were included. The database consisted of 66,900 patients; 33,782 on novel agents, and 33,118 on clopidogrel. New ADP receptor antagonists reduced the composite incidence of all-cause mortality, myocardial infarction or stroke (odds ratio [OR] 0.89, 95 % confidence interval [CI] 0.81-0.97, p = 0.01) but increased the incidence of non-coronary artery bypass grafting-related major bleeding (OR 1.24, 95 % CI 1.08-1.42, p = 0.003). The composite end point of the net rate of adverse clinical events, which was the combination of the primary efficacy end point and the primary safety end point, was significantly lower in the new agent group compared to the clopidogrel group (9.7 versus 10.6 %, OR 0.92, 95 % CI 0.85-1.00). Use of recently introduced new ADP receptor antagonists results in a reduction in adverse clinical outcomes but a substantial increase in bleeding. New agents revealed an improved combined efficacy and safety outcome compared to that of clopidogrel in patients with CAD.

The association between age and the primary composite outcome, as well as major bleeding were evaluated in the PLATelet inhibition and patient Outcomes (PLATO) trial using Cox proportional hazards. Similar models were used to evaluate the interaction of age with treatment effects. Hazard ratios were adjusted for baseline characteristics. The clinical benefit of ticagrelor over clopidogrel was not significantly different between patients aged ≥75 years of buy plavix age (n=2878) and those <75 years of age (n=15 744) with respect to the composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke (interaction P=0.56), myocardial infarction (P=0.33), cardiovascular death (P=0.47), definite stent thrombosis (P=0.81), or all-cause mortality (P=0.76). No increase in PLATO-defined overall major bleeding with ticagrelor versus clopidogrel was observed in patients aged ≥75 years (hazard ratio, 1.02; 95% confidence interval, 0.82-1.27) or patients aged <75 years (hazard ratio, 1.04; 95% confidence interval, 0.94-1.15). Dyspnea and ventricular pauses were more common during ticagrelor than clopidogrel treatment, with no evidence of an age-by-treatment interaction.

Current challenges exist to widespread clinical implementation of genomic medicine and pharmacogenetics. The University of Florida (UF) Health Personalized Medicine Program (PMP) is Strattera 18 Mg a pharmacist-led, multidisciplinary initiative created in 2011 within the UF Clinical Translational Science Institute. Initial efforts focused on pharmacogenetics, with long-term goals to include expansion to disease-risk prediction and disease stratification. Herein we describe the processes for development of the program, the challenges that were encountered and the clinical acceptance by clinicians of the genomic medicine implementation. The initial clinical implementation of the UF PMP began in June 2012 and targeted clopidogrel use and the CYP2C19 genotype in patients undergoing left heart catheterization and percutaneous-coronary intervention (PCI). After 1 year, 1,097 patients undergoing left heart catheterization were genotyped preemptively, and 291 of those underwent subsequent PCI. Genotype results were reported to the medical record for 100% of genotyped patients. Eighty patients who underwent PCI had an actionable genotype, with drug therapy changes implemented in 56 individuals. Average turnaround time from blood draw to genotype result entry in the medical record was 3.5 business days. Seven different third party payors, including Medicare, reimbursed for the test during the first month of billing, with an 85% reimbursement rate for outpatient claims that were submitted in the first month. These data highlight multiple levels of success in clinical implementation of genomic medicine.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for approximately 60% of total mortality in 2002. There is evidence that race and ethnicity is a risk factor for atherothrombotic events. Blacks have a greater risk of complications from coronary heart disease and unstable angina, with a higher coronary heart disease death rate compared with whites. The risk of ischemic stroke is 2-4 times higher among blacks compared with whites, whereas the risk of peripheral arterial disease is highest among non-Hispanic blacks. Additionally, Asian-Pacific Islander ethnicity is an independent risk factor for bleeding, even though this ethnic group receives less antithrombotic therapy compared with whites. The increased risk of events in these patient populations may have its basis in racial and ethnic differences in the pathobiology of atherosclerosis. Some racial and ethnic populations are also inadequately prescribed antiplatelet therapy despite their higher risk. Although this difference in therapy is hard to explain, it is becoming clear that factors other than socioeconomic status or clinical presentation are influencing racial differences in physician provisions of therapy. Antiplatelet therapy, including aspirin and clopidogrel, is an important component of risk reduction strategies, and Zovirax 200mg Tablets there are few data to suggest racial or ethnic variations in drug efficacies. Thus, understanding and overcoming race and ethnicity-related treatment disparities should lead to significant clinical improvements in these under-served populations.

Many patients with moderate to severe mitral regurgitation cannot be subjected to surgical therapy due to their multimorbidity. For these patients, MitraClip® implantation is a therapeutic alternative.The aim of this article is to present recommendations for treatment after a MitraClip® procedure. For this purpose, a selective literature review has been carried out based on the current literature, notably on national and international guidelines.After a MitraClip® procedure, rehabilitation is indicated because of the underlying heart failure as well as the treatment of a heart valve. Here, optimization of drug therapy, implementation of standardized heart failure training, the initiation of strength and endurance training and psychosocial support are initiated. Patients will be briefed on endocarditis prophylaxis lasting for at least six months. Furthermore, according to current guidelines, treatment with ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers and aldosterone antagonists are optimized. A special feature is anticoagulation, which is currently empirically accounted for and performed in sinus rhythm typically for four weeks of dual antiplatelet therapy (aspirin and clopidogrel) followed by a monotherapy with aspirin. In atrial fibrillation, lifelong oral anticoagulation is indicated combined with a platelet aggregation inhibitor for four weeks.In particular, echocardiographic control in the rehabilitation clinic and by cardiologists has to be focused on a residual atrial septal defect, the transmitral gradient and a residual mitral regurgitation.

Currently, clopidogrel is recommended for treatment of patients with acute coronary syndrome and/or percutaneous coronary intervention. However, the delayed onset of the effect and the occurrence of poor platelet inhibition responders with clopidogrel as well as non-compliance to dual antiplatelet treatment are associated with a raised risk of stent thrombosis. The molecular target of the active metabolite of clopidogrel and several emerging antiplatelet treatments is the P2Y(12) receptor, which is the main platelet receptor responsible for ADP-induced platelet aggregation. Active metabolites of the thienopyridine prodrugs (ticlopidine, clopidogrel, and prasugrel) covalently bind to the P2Y(12) receptor and are irreversible, indirect platelet inhibitors. The newer, direct-acting P2Y(12) inhibitors (cangrelor and ticagrelor) change the conformation of the P2Y(12) receptor, resulting in reversible, concentration dependent inhibition of the receptor. An understanding of the similarities and differences in the properties and mechanisms of action of these new inhibitors compared with clopidogrel is needed in order to optimize the development and use of these agents in clinical practice. The objectives of this systematic review are to summarize the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacogenetics of the different P2Y(12) inhibitors and to discuss the clinical implications for treatment of patients.
