BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to compare the effects of 2 strategies of antiplatelet treatment (i.e., 150 mg ASA vs. 75 mg clpoidogrel) on plasma level of inflammatory markers in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients with high platelet reactivity (HPR). METHODS Study cohort consisted of 304 T2DM patients on chronic ASA therapy (75 mg per day)(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence from the literature suggests diminished acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) treatment efficacy in type 2 diabetes (DM2). High on-aspirin platelet reactivity (HAPR) in DM2 has been linked to poor glycemic and lipid control. However, there are no consistent data on the association between HAPR and insulin resistance or adipose tissue metabolic(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet reactivity in patients on acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) therapy can be influenced by physiological or pathological conditions affecting ASA pharmacokinetics or pharmacodynamics. The mechanism of such variability in the therapeutic response to ASA, particularly in diabetic patients, is poorly understood. The rate of elimination of ASA and(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of genetic polymorphisms in candidate genes within the leukotriene (LT) pathway on platelet reactivity and the concentration of selected LTs in diabetic patients treated with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA). The study cohort consisted of 287 Caucasians with type 2 diabetes who had received treatment with(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of common single nucleotide genomic polymorphisms in the cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) gene on the thromboxane A2 (TxA2) metabolite concentrations in serum and urine, as well as on prostaglandin F2α (PGF2α) urinary excretion in the diabetic population on acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) therapy.

PURPOSE Individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart failure (HF). In patients with T2DM elevated serum concentrations of the N-terminal fragment of pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) correlate with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We aimed to identify predictors of increased serum(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes (T2DM) patients are at increased risk of cardiovascular events despite long-term acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) therapy. This study was performed to establish the prevalence of high platelet reactivity (HPR) on ASA in T2DM and to identify its predictors. METHODS The study included 185 T2DM on chronic ASA therapy and to assess(More)
