In this study, 796 men with unstable coronary artery disease (that is, unstable angina or non-Q wave myocardial infarction) were randomized to double-blind placebo-controlled treatment with aspirin (75 mg/day). The long-term efficacy was judged from the occurrence of myocardial infarction or death or severe angina necessitating referral to coronary angiography. The risk of myocardial infarction or death was reduced during aspirin treatment--after 1 year, the risk ratio was 0.52 (confidence… CONTINUE READING
