121. Results of the randomized, placebo-controlled clopidogrel and acetylsalicylic acid in bypass surgery for peripheral arterial disease (CASPAR) trial (PubMed)

Results of the randomized, placebo-controlled clopidogrel and acetylsalicylic acid in bypass surgery for peripheral arterial disease (CASPAR) trial Dual antiplatelet therapy with clopidogrel plus acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) is superior to ASA alone in patients with acute coronary syndromes and in those undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. We sought to determine whether clopidogrel plus ASA conferred benefit on limb outcomes over ASA alone in patients undergoing below-knee bypass (...) grafting.Patients undergoing unilateral, below-knee bypass graft for atherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD) were enrolled 2 to 4 days after surgery and were randomly assigned to clopidogrel 75 mg/day plus ASA 75 to 100 mg/day or placebo plus ASA 75 to 100 mg/day for 6 to 24 months. The primary efficacy endpoint was a composite of index-graft occlusion or revascularization, above-ankle amputation of the affected limb, or death. The primary safety endpoint was severe bleeding (Global Utilization

Reduced-function CYP2C19 genotype and risk of adverse clinical outcomes among patients treated with clopidogrel predominantly for PCI: a meta-analysis. Clopidogrel, one of the most commonly prescribed medications, is a prodrug requiring CYP450 biotransformation. Data suggest its pharmacologic effect varies based on CYP2C19 genotype, but there is uncertainty regarding the clinical risk imparted by specific genotypes.To define the risk of major adverse cardiovascular outcomes among carriers of 1 (...) (≈ 26% prevalence in whites) and carriers of 2 (≈ 2% prevalence in whites) reduced-function CYP2C19 genetic variants in patients treated with clopidogrel.A literature search was conducted (January 2000-August 2010) in MEDLINE, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and EMBASE. Genetic studies were included in which clopidogrel was initiated in predominantly invasively managed patients in a manner consistent with the current guideline recommendations and in which clinical outcomes were

128. Risk of adverse outcomes in Taiwan associated with concomitant use of clopidogrel and proton pump inhibitors in patients who received percutaneous coronary intervention (PubMed)

Risk of adverse outcomes in Taiwan associated with concomitant use of clopidogrel and proton pump inhibitors in patients who received percutaneous coronary intervention Recent studies have suggested that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) might reduce the inhibitory effect of clopidogrel on platelet aggregation, possibly through inhibition of the hepatic cytochrome P450 2C19 (CYP2C19) isoenzyme. The prevalence of CYP2C19 loss-of-function alleles is much greater among East Asians than among other (...) populations. Thus, potential drug interactions might be more apparent. Therefore, we conducted a nationwide, population-based study using the Taiwan National Health Insurance database. We identified 3,278 patients (mean age 65.9 +/- 11.9 years, 71.9% men) with coronary artery disease who had taken clopidogrel after percutaneous coronary intervention from the 1 million sampling cohort data set since January 1, 2002. Of the 3,278 patients, 572 had received concomitant PPIs for underlying gastrointestinal

When Clopidogrel Fails… When Clopidogrel Fails… – Clinical Correlations Search When Clopidogrel Fails… March 10, 2010 3 min read Marisa Mizus Faculty peer reviewed Clopidogrel ( Plavix ) has been the standard of care for patients with coronary artery disease following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for the past decade. Although it is a successful antiplatelet treatment in many patients, like any hero, it has a weakness: formation of its active metabolite depends on two hepatic (...) cytochrome P450 (CYP450)-dependent steps. Clopidogrel resistance, or non-response, is correlated with an increased risk of major adverse cardiovascular events, including reinfarction and stent thrombosis.(1) It is often unclear why a patient does not respond to clopidogrel, although there is speculation that clopidogrel resistance results from the attenuating effects of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and CYP450 reduced function polymorphisms.(2) Patients showing inadequate platelet response to clopidogrel

Comparison of ticagrelor with clopidogrel in patients with a planned invasive strategy for acute coronary syndromes (PLATO): a randomised double-blind study. Variation in and irreversibility of platelet inhibition with clopidogrel has led to controversy about its optimum dose and timing of administration in patients with acute coronary syndromes. We compared ticagrelor, a more potent reversible P2Y12 inhibitor with clopidogrel in such patients.At randomisation, an invasive strategy was planned (...) for 13 408 (72.0%) of 18 624 patients hospitalised for acute coronary syndromes (with or without ST elevation).

Effects of CYP2C19 genotype on outcomes of clopidogrel treatment. It has been suggested that clopidogrel may be less effective in reducing the rate of cardiovascular events among persons who are carriers of loss-of-function CYP2C19 alleles that are associated with reduced conversion of clopidogrel to its active metabolite.We genotyped patients from two large, randomized trials that showed that clopidogrel, as compared with placebo, reduced the rate of cardiovascular events (the primary efficacy (...) outcome) among patients with acute coronary syndromes and among patients with atrial fibrillation. Patients were genotyped for three single-nucleotide polymorphisms (*2, *3, *17) that define the major CYP2C19 alleles.Among 5059 genotyped patients with acute coronary syndromes, clopidogrel as compared with placebo significantly reduced the rate of the primary efficacy outcome, irrespective of the genetically determined metabolizer phenotype (P=0.12 for heterogeneity).

Clopidogrel with or without omeprazole in coronary artery disease. Gastrointestinal complications are an important problem of antithrombotic therapy. Proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) are believed to decrease the risk of such complications, though no randomized trial has proved this in patients receiving dual antiplatelet therapy.
