DALLAS - Sept. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- Dual oral antiplatelet therapy, with aspirin and a P2Y12 receptor inhibitor, for the management of patients experiencing an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), has demonstrated significant improvements in the prevention of recurring major cardiovascular events versus aspirin alone. Clopidogrel, prasugrel, and ticagrelor are three P2Y12 receptor inhibitors, with distinct pharmacologic properties, used in the management of ACS, and all three have been studied in large cardiovascular outcome clinical trials. Both prasugrel and ticagrelor have been studied separately against clopidogrel, on a background of aspirin therapy, in the setting of ACS. These landmark trials had distinct trial designs, and the study results have led to the inclusion of prasugrel and ticagrelor in ACS clinical practice guidelines. With the arrival of these newer agents, clinicians now face more complex choices regarding selection of clopidogrel, prasugrel, or ticagrelor to accompany aspirin therapy in ACS management. In this program, Chair Dr. Gregg Stone and faculty members Dr. Christopher Cannon, Dr. James de Lemos, Dr. Cindy Grines, Dr. Paul Gurbel, and Dr. P. Gabriel Steg, will provide attendees with state-of-the-art information on these agents in the settings of unstable angina/NSTEMI and STEMI, and debate and recommend best strategies in challenging ACS cases.
