antiplatelet drugs, adenosine diphosphate (ADP) receptor inhibitors, clopidogrel (300-mg loading dose, 75 mg/d after) added to fibrinolysis plus aspirin plus heparin
DISEASE INTERVENTION COMPARISON RESULTS
N Engl J Med. 2005 Mar 24;352(12):1179-89 Randomized Controlled Trial, Multicenter Study
IN coronary disease, myocardial infarction, ST-segment elevation The Use of
antiplatelet drugs, adenosine diphosphate (ADP) receptor inhibitors, clopidogrel (300-mg loading dose, 75 mg/d after) added to fibrinolysis plus aspirin plus heparin
As Treatment, Acute
Is better Than
standard antithrombotic Tt with fibrinolysis + aspirin + heparin alone (+ placebo)
To reduce at 30 days vascular events (cardiovascular death, recurrent infarction, revascularization because recurrent ischemia): 11,6% with clopidogrel VS 14,6% standard Tt, Major bleeding and intracranial hemorrhage similar in the two groups.
