New Updates to AHA/ACC/SCAI Clinical Guidelines Recommend Treatment with Effient(R) for Patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes Managed with PCI
Date:11/18/2009

PARSIPPANY, N.J. and INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Effient® (prasugrel) tablets, a new antiplatelet medicine, was added as a treatment option in two clinical guideline updates: one for patients receiving percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and a second one for patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), or severe heart attack.
