This is a Phase 4, multicenter, open-label (blinded Pharmacodynamic PD results), randomized, 3-arm, parallel-design study of subjects with stable Coronary Artery Disease CAD. This study will compare the PD effect of prasugrel 10 mg QD (once-daily) maintenance dose with ticagrelor 90 mg BID (twice daily) maintenance dose in subjects with stable CAD who have previously received ticagrelor loading does (LD) and maintenance dose (MD)..

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • P2Y12 Reaction Units [ Time Frame: 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    P2Y12 Reaction Units (PRU) measured by VerifyNow P2Y12 assay

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • P2Y12 Reaction Units [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 24, 48 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    P2Y12 Reaction Units (PRU) measured by VerifyNow P2Y12 assay measured at 2, 4, 24, 48 hours after first randomized study treatment

  • Platelet Reactivity Index [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 24, 48 hours, 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Platelet Reactivity Index (PRI) by the Vasodilator-Stimulated Phosphoprotein(VASP) assay 2, 4, 24, 48 hours and 7 days after first randomized study treatment.

  • PRU percent inhibition [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 24, 48 hours, 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PRU VerifyNow P2Y12 assay device-reported and calculated percent inhibition 2, 4, 24, and 48 hours, and 7 days after first randomized study treatment

  • Percentage of subjects with High on-treatment Platelet Reactivity [ Time Frame: 2, 4, 24, 48 hours, 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage of subjects with High on-treatment Platelet Reactivity (HPR) defined as a) >= 208 PRU and b) >= 230 PRU by the VerifyNow P2Y12 assay and c) >50% PRI by the VASP assay, 2, 4, 24, and 48 hours and 7 days after first randomized study treatment

  • Weight >= 60 kg
  • Receiving low dose ASA (75 mg to 150 mg daily) for at least 7 days at the time of Visit 1 and able to continue the same regimen throughout the study
  • Stable CAD. CAD is defined as any of the following:
  • History of a positive stress test
  • Previous coronary revascularization including percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), stent, or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)
  • Angiographic demonstration of CAD (at least

    1 lesion >= 50 percent)

  • Presence of at least moderate plaque by computed tomography (CT) angiography
  • Electron beam CT coronary artery calcification score >= 100 Agatston units
  • If female, may be enrolled if

One of the following 3 criteria are met:

  • Had a hysterectomy or tubal ligation at least 6 months prior to signing the informed consent form (ICF)
  • Post-menopausal for at least 1 year
  • If of childbearing potential, will practice 1 of the following methods of birth control throughout the study: oral, injectable, or implantable hormonal contraceptives; intrauterine device; diaphragm plus spermicide; or female condom plus spermicide. Methods of contraception that are not acceptable are partner's use of condoms or partner's vasectomy
  • Able and willing to provide written informed consent before entering the study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Have a defined need for adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-receptor inhibitor therapy, such as any of the following (or any other condition that in the Investigator's judgment would require such therapy):
  • Within =< 12 months of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) event (unstable angina [UA], non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction [NSTEMI], or ST-elevation myocardial infarction [STEMI]) regardless of initial treatment (that is, invasive versus noninvasive)
  • Subjects who underwent angioplasty within 12 months including bare-metal stent and/or a drug-eluting stent
  • Had any stent placed in an unprotected left main coronary artery or in the last patent artery within the last 12 months

  • History of refractory ventricular arrhythmias with an increased risk of bradycardic events (eg, subjects without a pacemaker who have sick sinus syndrome, 2nd or 3rd degree atrioventricular (AV) block or bradycardic-related syncope)
  • History or evidence of congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association Class III or above =< 6 months before screening
