Cangrelor is a reversible, intravenous inhibitor of the P2Y12 receptor whose effect is to inhibit adenosine diphosphate-induced platelet aggregation. The Medicines Company is developing it for use in the setting of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention procedures (PCI), specifically those who have not used Plavix or other P2Y12 inhibitors in the prior week. Two previous phase III trials failed to meet their primary endpoints. Thus, approval hangs on the results of a third trial, CHAMPION-PHOENIX that should report before year-end. This report explores the probability of a favorable phase III outcome, eventual approval, and the market opportunity.

Key Topics Covered:
