BACKGROUND Ligand binding to the platelet membrane receptor glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa, the final and obligatory step to platelet aggregation, can now be inhibited by pharmacological agents. This study was designed to evaluate the potential of lamifiban, a novel nonpeptide antagonist of GP IIb/IIIa, for the management of unstable angina. METHODS AND(More)
Quantitative angiography was performed in 68 out of 123 patients treated with intravenous rt-PA for acute myocardial infarction. At 90 min angiography, the median minimal cross-sectional area was 1.11 mm2 and the median percentage area stenosis was 80%. A percentage area stenosis greater than 70% was seen in 78% of the patients. Patients with a patient(More)
Alinidine, a drug which reduces heart rate without depressing myocardial function was compared against metoprolol, a beta-blocking drug, in the treatment of stable angina pectoris in a double-blind cross-over trial. It was found that both drugs reduced anginal attacks and nitroglycerine consumption to a comparable degree. Exercise tolerance did not appear(More)
