Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Any of the following within 30 days: Death from any cause
  • Myocardial infarction; or Recurrent ischemic events requiring urgent intervention (coronary artery bypass surgery, repeat coronary angioplasty, coronary stent placement, intra-aortic balloon pump)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Components of the primary endpoint: Recurrent ischemia before or after the planned angioplasty; Myocardial infarction; Repeat angioplasty; Coronary artery bypass surgery; Deaths

Estimated Enrollment: 1400
Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of abciximab, an anti-platelet therapy, in patients with unstable angina who are not responding to standard medical therapy and who are eligible for coronary angioplasty. The primary outcomes of the study include any of the following within 30 days: the number of deaths from any cause, myocardial infarctions or the number of recurrent ischemic events requiring urgent intervention (such as a coronary artery bypass surgery, repeat coronary angioplasty, coronary stent placement, or intra-aortic balloon pump). Please see attached results.

Patients will be treated with abciximab or matching placebo.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with refractory angina as evidenced by at least one episode of ischemia (chest pain and/or ST-T changes) despite bed rest and at least 2 hours of treatment with oral or intravenous nitrates and intravenous heparin, or persistent newly developed negative T-waves occurring or continuing after at least 2 hours of treatment with oral or intravenous nitrates and intravenous heparin
  • Having clinical signs and symptoms of angina at rest or minimal exertion with dynamic ST-segment and/or T-wave changes
  • Having an episode of chest pain within 48 hours prior to the start of study agent administration
  • Having a culprit lesion in a single native coronary vessel suitable for angioplasty on the qualifying angiogram

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have had a recent myocardial infarction, unless CK has returned to less than twice the upper limit of normal
  • Having features of ongoing ischemia that would require immediate intervention, or had a percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) within the past 24 hours
  • Having an unprotected occlusion of the main left coronary artery > 50%, a culprit lesion located in a venous or arterial bypass graft, or recent bleeding or a condition associated with increased bleeding risk
  • Receiving concurrent administration of oral anticoagulants at the time of study entry, administration of intravenous dextran (prior to or planned for use during angioplasty), or planned administration of thrombolytic agent prior to or during angioplasty
  • Having persistent hypertension at admission despite treatment, or a platelet count less than 100,000 per millimeter cubed
