According to the results of the present study, treatment with omeprazole had no impact on the clinical efficacy of clopidogrel drug therapy during the first year after successful CS.
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.

This DI approach can be used to generate quantitative hypotheses on multiple gene effects derived from independent genotype studies. This approach is useful for estimating parameters needed in designing future studies to evaluate the net effect of ≥ 2 genetic variants on a common clinical endpoint.
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.
Early clopidogrel administration to patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) has been demonstrated to improve outcomes in a large Chinese trial. However, patterns of use of clopidogrel for patients with AMI in China are unknown.

One hundred six patients scheduled for off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting were divided into three groups: aspirin and clopidogrel discontinued more than 6 days before surgery (group 1, n = 35), aspirin and clopidogrel continued until 3 to 5 days before surgery (group 2, n = 51), and both medications continued within 2 days of surgery (group 3, n = 20). Thromboelastographic tracings were analyzed before induction of anesthesia. Routine coagulation profiles were measured before and after surgery. A cell salvage device was used during surgery and salvaged blood was reinfused. Chest tube drainage and blood transfusion requirement were recorded postoperatively.

In patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing early PCI, the efficacy and safety of ticagrelor as compared with clopidogrel were not modified by GPI use according to the primary efficacy and safety end point of the trial, although there were indications of greater benefit on definite stent thrombosis and more major or minor bleeding with ticagrelor in patients without (vs with) GPI treatment.
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.
