Effect of RVX000222 on Time to Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events in High-Risk T2DM Subjects With CAD

The majority (75%) of deaths in subjects with diabetes mellitus (DM) are due to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD). Recent studies suggest a major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) rate of >11% over 18 months in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) despite a baseline LDL-C of <2.1 mmol/L. Bromodomains (BRDs) are a ...


Assessment of Loading With the P2Y12 Inhibitor Ticagrelor or Clopidogrel to Halt Ischemic Events in Patients Undergoing Elective Coronary Stenting

The new P2Y12 inhibitors prasugrel (Efient-Effient) and ticagrelor (Brilique-Brilinta) have shown promising results in the respective TRITON and PLATO trials making of prasugrel and ticagrelor recommended first line treatments for acute coronary syndrome ACS (ESC Guidelines: Class 1 LOE B). These two drugs showed superiority over clopidogrel in ACS patients ...


The Effect Of Ticagrelor On Saphenous Vein Graft Patency In Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgery

Rationale: Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) is used to prevent the occlusion of grafts placed during coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG) and to reduce the incidence of atherothrombotic events during follow-up. Graft occlusion occurs predominantly in saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) and can result in symptoms of chest pain, myocardial infarction (MI) ...


Safety and Efficacy of the CRE8 Stent for the Treatment of De Novo Coronary Artery Lesions

This study consists of a randomized controlled cohort and a long stent observational cohort. The randomized controlled trial is a prospective, multi-center, non-inferior, randomized controlled trial. The control device (RESOLUTE zotarolimus-eluting stent) used in this trial was provided by Medtronic. RESOLUTE zotarolimus-eluting stent has been already approved by China Food ...


MagicTouch Sirolimus Drug Coated Balloon Catheter for the Treatment of Coronary Lesions

Prospective, multicenter, randomized study designed to enroll 60 subjects with In-stent Restenosis, To demonstrate the efficacy of MagicTouch Drug-Coated Balloon in reducing late lumen loss / suppressing neointimal tissue formation as assessed by Quantitative Coronary Angiography / Intravascular Ultrasound examination for the treatment of coronary artery lesions ranging from 3.0 ...


Clinical Trial on the Efficacy and Safety of Sirolimus-Eluting Stent (MiStent System)

- The study will enroll a total of 428 cases of primary in situ coronary artery disease patients (all patients enrolled with a maximum of two target lesions in different blood vessels and maximum of 2 stents per lesion. If more stents are needed for implantation, stents with the same ...


Phase III Study Comparing Two Methods of Cardioplegia in Aortic Valve Surgery Custodiol-N Versus Custodiol

The objective of this investigation is to compare the cardioprotective effects and safety of two cardioplegic solutions, HTK Cardioplegic Solution (Custodiol) and Custodiol-N in patients undergoing aortic valve surgery. The study design is a prospective, double blind, multicenter, randomized, Phase III comparison study intended to demonstrate superiority in surgical outcome ...


Effects of Combined Therapy With Statin Plus Fenofibrate on Coronary Atherosclerotic Plaque Compared With Statin Alone

Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In the past few decades, optimal pharmacological therapies with statins targeting LDL-cholesterol substantially reduce the risks of cardiovascular disease. However, the residual cardiovascular risk is still high, requiring need for additional preventive therapies to achieve even greater risk reduction. ...


BIOTRONIK Orsiro Pre-Marketing Registration

Clinical or call follow up visits will take place at 1, 6, 12, 24, 36, 48 and 60 months post procedure. At 9 months (+ 30 days) all subjects will undergo a standard quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) follow up to assess the in-stent LLL as the main efficacious evaluation. Use ...


Colchicine Cardiovascular Outcomes Trial (COLCOT)

Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of myocardial infarction, stroke and peripheral arterial disease. Research has clearly demonstrated that inflammation plays a key role in the initiation, progression and manifestations of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerotic lesions begin as an accumulation of lipid-laden cells (primarily macrophages) beneath the endothelium, and progress with the ...
