BACKGROUND The degree of antiplatelet response to clopidogrel has been associated with clinical outcomes. Studies have investigated whether adjustment of antiplatelet therapies based on a single platelet function test is beneficial. OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to test the stability of platelet reactivity measurements over time among patients(More)
BACKGROUND A limitation of aspirin is that some patients, particularly those with diabetes, may not have an optimal antiplatelet effect. OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to determine if oral bioavailability mediates nonresponsiveness. METHODS The rate and extent of serum thromboxane generation and aspirin pharmacokinetics were measured in 40(More)
OBJECTIVE We evaluated the risk of cardiovascular (CV) death in all Examination of Cardiovascular Outcomes with Alogliptin versus Standard of Care (EXAMINE) study participants and in those who experienced an on-study, major nonfatal CV event. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS The study randomly assigned 5,380 patients with type 2 diabetes to alogliptin or(More)
BACKGROUND Use of the CHA2DS2-VASc score instead of the CHADS2 score for thromboembolic risk stratification and initiation of oral anticoagulation (OAC) was recommended in the 2014 American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology/Heart Rhythm Society atrial fibrillation (AF) guidelines. We sought to define the proportion of patients with AF(More)
BACKGROUND Primary patency (PP) in trials assessing superficial femoral artery (SFA) stenting is defined as a combination of vessel patency assessed by duplex ultrasound (DUS) at the 12-month follow-up exam and freedom from revascularization of the index vessel through 12 months of follow-up. Loss of PP is thus more likely to be identified during the(More)
Atherosclerosis and venous thromboembolism (VTE) share common risk factors. We set to assess the strength of the association between atherosclerosis risk factors and disease manifestation, and VTE, in patients with coronary artery disease undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. We pooled data from 6 global randomized controlled trials assessing(More)
BACKGROUND Despite higher thromboembolism risk, women with atrial fibrillation have lower oral anticoagulation (OAC) use compared to men. The influence of the CHA2DS2-VASc score or the introduction of non-vitamin K OACs on this relationship is not known. METHODS AND RESULTS Using the PINNACLE National Cardiovascular Data Registry from 2008 to 2014, we(More)
