BACKGROUND Ticagrelor is the first reversibly binding oral P2Y(12) receptor antagonist. This is the first study to compare the onset and offset of platelet inhibition (IPA) with ticagrelor using the PLATO (PLATelet inhibition and patient Outcomes) trial loading dose (180 mg) with a high loading dose (600 mg) of clopidogrel. METHODS AND RESULTS In a(More)
BACKGROUND The influence of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C19 genotype on platelet function in patients treated with ticagrelor versus clopidogrel is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS CYP2C19 (*1, *2, *3, *4, *5, *6, *7, *8, *17) genotyping was performed in patients with coronary artery disease treated with ticagrelor (180-mg load, 90 mg BID) (n=92) or clopidogrel(More)
INTRODUCTION Dapagliflozin is a first-in-class sodium-glucose transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor under investigation for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. A thorough QTc study was conducted, according to International Conference on Harmonization E14 guidelines, to characterize the effect of dapagliflozin on cardiac repolarization. METHODS The(More)
Interactions between ticagrelor and atorvastatin or simvastatin were investigated in two-way crossover studies. Both studies were open-label for statin; the atorvastatin study was placebo-controlled for ticagrelor. For atorvastatin, volunteers (n = 24) received ticagrelor (loading dose 270 mg; 90 mg twice daily, 7 days) or placebo, plus atorvastatin calcium(More)
OBJECTIVES Two open-label, two-period, crossover studies in healthy volunteers were designed to determine the pharmacokinetic interactions between ticagrelor, a P2Y12 receptor antagonist, and a moderate (diltiazem) and a strong (ketoconazole) cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A inhibitor. METHODS Seventeen volunteers received diltiazem (240 mg once daily) for 14(More)
Ticagrelor is a reversibly binding P2Y12 receptor antagonist for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients with acute coronary syndrome. Previous in vitro studies showed that ticagrelor is a substrate and inhibitor of P-glycoprotein (ABCB1). Therefore, we examined the potential interaction between digoxin, a P-glycoprotein substrate, and(More)
Ticagrelor, a reversibly binding oral P2Y12 receptor antagonist, is predominantly metabolized by cytochrome P450 3A and both the parent compound and its active metabolite AR-C124910XX are substrates of P-glycoprotein. Rifampicin was used to assess the effects of CYP3A and P-glycoprotein induction on the single-dose pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of(More)
The aim of this study was to assess age and gender effects on ticagrelor pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (PK/PD). Forty healthy individuals [18–45 years (young); ≥65 years (elderly); ten men, ten women per age group) received 200 mg ticagrelor. Ticagrelor was rapidly absorbed [time to maximum concentration (Cmax) (tmax) 2.5–3.0 h], and its major(More)
The results of two independent, randomized, two-period crossover, single-center studies, conducted to assess the pharmacokinetics of ticagrelor ± aspirin, inhibition of platelet aggregation (IPA) with ticagrelor/aspirin vs. clopidogrel/aspirin, and safety, tolerability, and bleeding times are reported here. In Study A (open-label), 16 volunteers received(More)
