Post-stent maintenance therapies questioned

e randomized, multi-center, double-blind, placebo controlled study of 2,022 patients undergoing PCI after pretreatment with clopidogrel were randomized to receive abciximab or placebo. The researchers measured for 30-day combined incidence of death, heart attack or urgent revascularization, as well as bleeding complications. The trial results show the role of the combination - intensive clopidogrel pretreatment plus abciximab - during PCI for ACS. They will enable us to know whether patients with ACS or any subset of them can benefit from this combination.

Dr. Kastrati will present the results of the "Prospective, Double Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa Inhibition with Abciximab in Patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes Undergoing Stenting After Pretreatment with a High Loading Dose of Clopidogrel" (ISAR-REACT 2) study on Monday, March 13, at 2:40 p.m.
