Ticagrelor or Prasugrel Versus Clopidogrel in Elderly Patients With an Acute Coronary Syndrome and a High Bleeding Risk: Optimization of Antiplatelet Treatment in High-risk Elderly


Brief description of study

A randomized controlled, open label, multicenter trial with 1000 patients aged 70 years and older, presenting with Non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome. Patients will be randomized to either clopidogrel or the novel P2Y12 inhibitor (ticagrelor or prasugrel). Patients will be followed for one year for outcomes such as bleeding episode requiring medical intervention and net clinical benefit (all cause mortality, non-fatal myocardial infarction, non-fatal stroke, PLATO major and minor bleeding).
