BRAVE-3 Questions Value of Abciximab in PCI for Heart Attack
Date:3/30/2008

re.

The study was designed primarily to compare how the two treatment strategies affected the final amount of heart attack damage, as gauged by blood flow in the heart muscle on a nuclear scan five to 10 days later. The researchers found no difference between the two groups: The damage involved 10 percent of the left ventricle, on average, in the abciximab group and 9 percent of the left ventricle in the placebo group. In addition, the 30-day combined rates of death, heart attack, stroke and urgent repeat coronary procedures were similar in the two groups (5 percent and 3.8 percent, respectively).

"For patients with acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary coronary intervention after pre-treatment with a 600-mg loading dose of clopidogrel, the additional use of abciximab is not associated with any measurable benefit after 30 days," Dr. Mehilli said.

Dr. Mehilli will present the results of the BRAVE-3 study on Sunday, March 30 at 8:30 a.m. CDT in the Grand Ballroom, S100.
