RESULTS

Found (22) clinical trials

The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate whether treatment with rivaroxaban and aspirin or rivaroxaban alone is better than aspirin alone in prevention of heart attacks, stroke or cardiovascular death in patients with coronary or peripheral artery disease.

Phase N/A

CREST-2 is two parallel multi-center randomized, observer-blinded endpoint clinical trials. One trial will assess treatment differences between intensive medical management alone compared to CEA plus intensive medical management. The parallel trial will assess treatment differences between intensive medical management alone compared to CAS plus intensive medical management. Intensive medical management ...

Predictive Value for Stroke

Patients with a moderate to severe carotid atherosclerotic plaque are at risk for stroke and this risk increases with increasing degree of stenosis. It has been shown that carotid endarterectomy in symptomatic patients with a carotid artery stenosis of 70-99% is highly beneficial. However, the beneficial effect of surgery in ...

Genetic- and Biological-Markers of Predisposition to Atherosclerosis: Leipzig-Heart Study

Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in Western societies. It is a complex genetic disorder with many genes involved and significant gene-environment interactions. The aim of the study is to identify novel genetic- and biological-markers of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is assessed in the coronary arteries using ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Short Term Atorvastatin Treatment 80mg/Day on Early Regression of Carotid Artery Atherosclerotic Lesions

Candidates for bilateral carotid endarterectomy (CEA) who meet study criteria will provide informed consent before their randomization. Before the first CEA, the patient will have MRI, US, and EBCT exams of both carotids. The most occlusive plaque will be resected at the first CEA. The patient will then receive atorvastatin ...

Phase

Rho Kinase (ROCK) Inhibition in Carotid Atherosclerosis

To evaluate the causal relationship between Rho/Rho kinase overactivity and mechanisms of vascular dysfunction in patients with atherosclerosis.

Phase

Effects of Nicotinic Acid Plus Simvastatin Versus Simvastatin Alone on Carotid and Femoral Intima-Media Thickness in Patients With Peripheral Artery Disease (NASCIT)

Dyslipidaemia is characterized by low plasma levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c), elevated triglycerides and an increase in low density lipoprotein (LDL-c) particles, and has been unequivocally established as a most important cardiovascular risk factor. While statins are effective in reducing plasma levels of LDL-c, these drugs have only modest ...

Ischemia Care Biomarkers of Acute Stroke Etiology (BASE)

Acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is a leading cause of adult mortality and morbidity in the United States, affecting over 800,000 individuals, annually, leaving many with permanent disability. Furthermore, hundreds of thousands of Americans experience a transient ischemic attack (TIA), a momentary episode of neurologic dysfunction, which often precedes a major ...
