Combination of Clopidogrel-aspirin is better for preventing stroke than only aspirin,,

In reducing blood clots, the combination of Clopidogrel and aspirin is more effective than only aspirin//.

The results were declared after 107 participants across four countries of the Europe were given the combination medication or only aspirin. Each of the participants of the study had had a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). All the patients have at least 50% narrower carotid arteries. The experimental group had microscopic blood clots in a brain artery.

The scientists had used transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasound for one hour to detect the microemboli in the patients’ middle cerebral artery of the brain. There were about 43.8% microscopic clots in patients who were administered the drug combo, in comparison to the other group who had 72.7% clots with only aspirin. The combination therapy had lowered the frequency of blood clot formation in the arteries also.

At present aspirin is routinely prescribed to patients who have a high risk of stroke, although aspirin seem to prevent an attack of stroke or ischemic heart attack by only 20%. It is for this reason the scientists of the research feels that there should be new ways for prevention of clotting and this research may be one of them.
