Ticagrelor Reduced Cardiovascular Deaths and Heart Attacks in ACS Patients Undergoing Heart Procedures: New Data from PLATO Trial
Date:9/24/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- New data from the phase III PLATO study showed that ticagrelor (BRILINTA((TM))) provided greater reduction of cardiovascular (CV) events (composite of CV death, heart attack and stroke) than clopidogrel (9.02% vs. 10.65%, p=0.0025 a 16% Relative Risk Reduction ) in acute coronary syndromes patients undergoing planned invasive treatment (either PCI or CABG).* Although patients undergoing invasive procedures are at greater risk of bleeding, these results were achieved without a significant increase in major bleeding compared to clopidogrel (11.5% vs 11.6%, p=0.88). Patients with planned invasive procedures at randomization accounted for more than 70% of the greater than 18,000 patients in PLATO. These sub-analysis data were presented today at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference in San Francisco.

Additional findings from this PLATO invasive sub-analysis showed that treatment with ticagrelor, compared to clopidogrel, demonstrated an effect consistent with the results for the entire invasive subgroup across the multiple secondary efficacy endpoints. The effect was seen regardless of whether a standard 300 mg loading dose of clopidogrel was given, or an additional loading dose of clopidogrel (e.g. 600 mg) was given. Specifically, results in this subgroup analysis indicated treatment with ticagrelor:

  • Reduced CV death 3.4% vs. 4.3% (p=0.025) Relative Risk Reduction of 18%
  • Reduced myocardial infarction (heart attack, MI) 5.3% vs. 6.6% (p=0.002) Relative Risk Reduction of 20%
  • Reduced definite stent thrombosis 1.0% vs. 1.6% (p=0.003) Relative Risk Reduction of 38%
  • Reduced total mortality 3.9% vs. 5.1% (p=0.01) Relative Risk Reduction of 19%
