TRITON-TIMI 38 Stent Analysis Favors Prasugrel
Date:3/29/2008

eceived only drug-eluting stents (DES). Overall, prasugrel reduced both early stent thrombosis -- within 30 days of stenting -- when compared with clopidogrel (0.64 percent vs. 1.56 percent, hazard ratio 0.41, p<0.001) -- and late stent thrombosis -- more than 30 days after stenting (0.49 percent vs. 0.82 percent, hazard ratio 0.60, p=0.035). For bare-metal stents, the respective rates of stent thrombosis with prasugrel and clopidogrel were 1.3 percent vs. 2.4 percent, hazard ratio 0.52, p=0.009, and for drug-eluting stents, 0.8 percent vs. 2.3 percent, hazard ratio 0.36, p<0.001. Prasugrel's advantage remained highly statistically significant across a broad array of patient and procedural characteristics.

Dr. Wiviott will present the results of the "Trial to Assess Improvement in Therapeutic Outcomes by Optimizing Platelet Inhibition with Prasugrel" (TRITON-TIMI 38) stent substudy on Saturday, March 29 at 9:00 a.m. CDT in the Grand Ballroom, S100. The study will be simultaneously published online in The Lancet.
