OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine whether the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) responses to high or standard clopidogrel loading doses (LDs) differ according to CYP2C19*2 allele. BACKGROUND CYP2C19 loss-of-function alleles are associated with reduced responsiveness to standard clopidogrel doses. METHODS Young post-myocardial(More)
The potential negative metabolic interaction between proton pump inhibitors and clopidogrel is an unsolved issue. We hypothesized that doubling the clopidogrel maintenance dose (150 mg) would be less effective than switching to prasugrel 10 mg maintenance dose (MD) to overcome this negative interaction. In a randomized study with a factorial design, 82(More)
BACKGROUND The extent of P2Y12 inhibition during coronary intervention is an important determinant of ischemic complications. The currently available oral P2Y12 inhibitors are limited by a relatively slow onset of action and variable on-treatment response. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine the pharmacodynamic (PD) dose-antiplatelet response(More)
