Comparison of TIcagrelor and Clopidogrel in Patients With Coronary Artery diseaSe and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (TICS-DM)

Despite the clinical benefit associated with dual therapy consisting in aspirin and clopidogrel, there are still a considerable number of patients who continue to have atherothrombotic events. Several studies have shown a wide interindividual variability in response to clopidogrel treatment and patients with poor response have an increased risk of ...


Supporting Patients Undergoing HIgh-Risk PCI Using a High-Flow PErcutaneous Left Ventricular Support Device (SHIELD II)

Prospective, randomized, multi-center, open-label trial of the HeartMate PHP at up to 100 sites in the US. Control device will be any Abiomed Impella device approved for use in high-risk PCI. Nonrandomized roll-in phase: Each site must first enroll and treat up to 6 patients (up to 3 PHP and ...

Phase N/A

Optimal Lesion Preparation With Non-compliant Balloons Before Implantation Of Bioresorbable Scaffolds (OPreNBiS)

Study design: Following pre-dilatation a BVS will be implanted and optical coherence tomography (OCT) will be performed in all patients. After OCT post-dilatation with non-compliant balloons might be performed if this is considered necessary by the treating interventionist. Final OCT will be performed in all patients. 1:1 Randomization of two ...


Pilot Clinical Study of MeRes100 Sirolimus Eluting Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold System

MeRes-1 Extend study is designed as prospective, multinational, multicentre, single arm, open label, pilot study to assess the safety and performance of the MeRes100 Sirolimus Eluting Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold System (BRS) in subjects with de novo native coronary artery lesions. 64 subjects will be enrolled from the 8 centers located ...


A Randomized Pharmacodynamic Comparison of Low Dose Ticagrelor to Clopidogrel in Patients With Prior Myocardial Infarction

Taken together the results from CHARISMA and PEGASUS-TIMI54, it appears that physicians may consider extending beyond 1 year or reinitiating treatment with clopidogrel 75 mg od or ticagrelor 60mg bid in patients with a prior MI and features of high ischemic and low bleeding risk. Comparative clinical or pharmacodynamic studies, ...


99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 Imaging for Carotid Atherosclerosis

The study is being done to assess the ability of the radiotracer 99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 to image atherosclerotic plaque that may rupture and break off artery walls. This is caused by apoptosis or cell death in the plaque. These ruptured plaques can block blood circulation in the arteries causing a lack ...


MDCO-216 Infusions Leading to Changes in Atherosclerosis: A Novel Therapy in Development to Improve Cardiovascular Outcomes - Proof of Concept Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) Lipids and Other Surrogate Biomarkers Trial

This study will be a proof of concept, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized trial in participants with a recent acute coronary syndrome (ACS) to evaluate the efficacy, pharmacokinetics, safety, tolerability, disease progression measures by IVUS, and pharmacodynamics of MDCO-216 infusion. Eligible participants will be randomized to receive 5 infusions of MDCO-216 20 ...


Evaluation of New Specifications (2.25mm) of FirehawkTM in the Treatment of Coronary Heart Disease ( Firehawk_2.25 )

The purpose of this study is to evalute the clinical safety and effectiveness of released specification (2.25mm) of FirehawkTM Sirolimus target-eluting coronary stent system.

Phase N/A

The Direct III Post Market Study

In this post-market study, the population will include real-world subjects who are intended to be treated, with SLENDER IDS as standard therapy. Follow-up contacts post procedure will be made for clinical assessments at hospital discharge, 1, 6 and 12 months. This study is designed as a prospective, multi-center, single-arm, observational ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Global Myocardial Perfusion Reserve Using Coronary Sinus Flow Measurements

Myocardial perfusion reserve is the ratio of global myocardial blood flow at stress vs. rest. Traditionally, it has been measured non-invasively using quantitative positron emission tomography (PET) or cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). Several recent studies have suggested that measurement of myocardial perfusion reserve provides significant additive prognostic information during stress ...
