Breakthrough in drug trial offers hope for heart attack patients
Date:9/13/2010

yndrome, were recruited for the PLATO trial, which involved over 18,000 cardiac patients worldwide.

The latest findings come days before World Heart Day (26 September 2010) which celebrates progress in heart health. The study has previously shown for every 1,000 patients treated for one year with ticagrelor instead of clopidogrel, there would be 14 fewer deaths or 11 fewer heart attacks without an increase in bleeding problems.

Dr Storey said: "The latest results on ticagrelor reinforce the positive data from the PLATO trial and suggest that ticagrelor has the potential to improve the quality of care and save many lives in the year following a heart attack, regardless of adverse effects or genetic differences in the response to clopidogrel."
