PARSIPPANY, N.J. and INDIANAPOLIS, March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Oral antiplatelet therapy Effient® (prasugrel) has been added to the updated clinical practice guidelines as a Class I recommended treatment option for patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) after experiencing heart-related chest pain at rest (unstable angina) or non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI).  NSTEMI is a type of heart attack that that does not need to be treated with emergent opening of a blocked coronary artery.(1) The update to the clinical guidelines, jointly developed by the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) and the American Heart Association (AHA), was published online on March 28, 2011, in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and Circulation.
