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 (404) 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 ...


Non-inferiority Study Comparing Firehawk Stent With Abbott Xience Family Stent (TARGET-AC)

Primary objective: to compare the MicroPort Medical (Group) Co., Ltd Firehawkcobalt chromium coronary stent ( rapamycin target eluting ) system with abluminal grooves containing a biodegradable polymer with the Abbott XIENCE family EES (Everolimus-Eluting stent) system with respect to cardiac death, myocardial infarction (not clearly attributable to a non-target vessel), ...


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 ...


Analysis of Surface EKG Signals to Identify Myocardial Dysfunction in Patients at Risk for Coronary Artery Disease

Background Myocardial ischemia is caused by myocardial oxygen supply and demand mismatch. Despite that coronary artery disease (CAD) is the major cause of myocardial ischemia, the symptoms may occur even in the absence of significant CAD. One of the mechanisms suggested for myocardial ischemia in these patients is microvascular ischemia ...


Edoxaban in Patients With Coronary Artery Disease on Dual Antiplatelet Therapy With Aspirin and Clopidogrel

Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor antagonist is pivotal for the treatment of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and in patents following an acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Importantly, it is not uncommon that patients requiring DAPT also need to be ...


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 ...



The primary objective of the EVOLVE Short DAPT Study is to assess the safety of 3-month dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in subjects at high risk for bleeding undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with the SYNERGY Stent System. The study will be conducted up to 120 sites worldwide in the United ...


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) ...


Ranolazine Mediated PVC Reduction in Ischemic Heart Disease

Ischemic heart disease is a heterogeneous condition with multiple etiologies that may contribute to an imbalance in myocardial oxygen supply and demand, resulting in depletion of myocardial cellular energy stores. Management of this disease state is aimed primarily at improving myocardial oxygen supply through revascularization of underlying obstructive atherosclerosis, in ...
