In Landmark Phase III Head-to-Head Study, Prasugrel Statistically Superior to Clopidogrel in Reducing Risk of Heart Attack
Date:11/4/2007

hreatening and minor bleeding as well as the overall safety and tolerability of prasugrel.

Patients were randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups and given a loading dose of either prasugrel 60 mg or the approved loading dose of clopidogrel 300 mg anytime between randomization and one hour after the completion of the PCI procedure, followed by a daily maintenance dose of either prasugrel 10 mg or clopidogrel 75 mg. All patients also received a daily low dose of aspirin.

Antiplatelet agents are critical for both acute and maintenance therapy to inhibit platelet activation and subsequent aggregation that occur in diseased arteries and as adjunct therapy to invasive procedures such as percutaneous coronary intervention.

About prasugrel

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (TSE: 4568), and Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) are co-developing prasugrel, an investigational oral antiplatelet agent invented by Daiichi Sankyo and its Japanese research partner Ube Industries, Ltd., as a potential treatment, initially for patients with acute coronary syndrome undergoing PCI. Prasugrel works by inhibiting platelet activation and subsequent aggregation by blocking the P2Y12 adenosine diphosphate (ADP) receptor on the platelet surface. Antiplatelet agents prevent platelets from clumping or sticking together, which can result in clogged arteries and may lead to heart attack or stroke.
