Your doctor said aspirin can lower your risk for another heart attack or stroke. But aspirin may raise your risk of stomach ulcers.


Brief description of study

Your doctor said aspirin can lower your risk for another heart attack or stroke. But aspirin may raise your risk of stomach ulcers.

Detailed Study Description

Doctors commonly prescribe 325 milligrams of aspirin daily for their patients to reduce the risk of suffering another heart attack or stroke. However, daily aspirin therapy may increase a person's risk for stomach ulcers.

The purpose of these studies is to determine the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug that combines aspirin and a second medication to see if it can help prevent stomach ulcers.

The second medication is already approved for use alone to prevent ulcers. These research studies may help determine whether the investigational combination of these two approved medications may provide long-term effective use of aspirin with a reduced risk of stomach ulcers for those in the future.

You may qualify to participate if you:

  • Have taken 325 mg of aspirin daily to prevent another heart attack or stroke for the past three months or more and your are either:
  • *Age 18-60 with a documented history of ulcers within the past five years *or, over age 60, with or without a history of ulcers
