Atherosclerosis Clinical Trials

A listing of Atherosclerosis medical research trials actively recruiting patient volunteers. Search for closest city to find more detailed information on a research study in your area.


Found (101) clinical trials

The treatment options this study will compare are: (1) Hybrid Coronary Revascularization [HCR] (a combination of surgery and catheter procedures to open up clogged heart arteries) and (2) Percutaneous Coronary Intervention [PCI] (catheter procedures alone to open up clogged heart arteries). There are no new or "experimental" procedures being tested ...


Aspirin Twice a Day in Patients With Diabetes and Acute Coronary Syndrome

Patients who show high persistent platelet reactivity under aspirin are increasingly becoming an issue of clinical concern. Several studies have suggested that giving aspirin more frequently is very effective for reducing aspirin high persistent platelet reactivity, especially in diabetic patients. The aim of the study is to evaluate low dose ...


Investigation of Metformin in Pre-Diabetes on Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular OuTcomes

CSP #2002 is a multicenter, prospective, randomized, double blind, secondary prevention trial to test the hypothesis that treatment with metformin, compared with placebo, reduces mortality and cardiovascular morbidity in patients with pre-diabetes and established atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Qualifying patients have pre-diabetes defined by HbA1c, fasting blood glucose, and/or oral glucose ...


Anti-platelet Effect of Berberine in Patients After Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Background Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a platelet P2Y12 inhibitor is mandatory in patients after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Clopidogrel is the most widely used P2Y12 inhibitor with class I recommendation. However, clopidogrel is a pro-drug which has highly variable antiplatelet effect. Hypo-responsiveness to clopidogrel was associated with ...


Edoxaban Versus Edoxaban With antiPlatelet Agent In Patients With Atrial Fibrillation and Chronic Stable Coronary Artery Disease

This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of Edoxaban with the combination of edoxaban and antiplatelet in patients with stable CAD (coronary artery stenosis 50% on medical treatment or revascularized stable CAD [ 12 months for acute coronary syndrome and 6 months after stable CAD]) and high-risk atrial fibrillation (CHA2DS2-VASc ...


Personalized Vs. Standard Duration of Dual Antiplatelet Therapy and New-generation Polymer-Free vs- Biodegradable-Polymer DES

The objective of the trial is: i) to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the Cre8 AES vs. the Synergy EES in a broadly unselected patient population with coronary artery disease undergoing PCI; ii) to compare the safety and efficacy of a personalized DAPT duration (3-, 6-, or 24-month) guided ...


Different Modalities of Analgesia in Open Heart Surgeries in Mansoura University

Pain after cardiac surgery is triggered by numerous factors including skin incision, sternotomy, sternal and rib retraction, internal mammary artery and saphenous vein harvesting, surgical manipulation of pleura, placement of chest tubes and tissue trauma during surgery.Median sternotomy significantly reduces postoperative pulmonary function; however, it is the most commonly used ...


The Effect of InTensive Statin in Ischemic Stroke With inTracranial Atherosclerotic Plaques

Intracranial atherosclerotic disease is the most common cause of ischemic stroke that is directly attributed to the progression or rupture of intracranial high-risk plaque in Asia. Many studies mainly from Euro-American population with a focus on extracranial carotid plaque have fully demonstrated the advantages of intensive statin therapy on stabilizing ...


The CHORAL Flow Study

Evolocumab is a proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitor which has been shown in the Fourier Trial to reduce major cardiovascular events in statin-treated patients with raised LDL cholesterol compared to placebo. The precise mechanisms via which evolocumab therapy impacts cardiovascular outcomes remain unknown. Coronary blood flow is a ...


Liraglutide Effects on Epicardial Fat Inflammatory Genes

Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is the visceral fat of the heart. EAT could locally affect the coronary arteries through local secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines. EAT plays a role in the development of the coronary artery disease (CAD). EAT is a highly enriched with genes involved in inflammation. Given its rapid ...
