  Purpose

The study is designed to determine whether vorapaxar, when added to the existing standard of care (SOC) for preventing heart attack and stroke (eg, aspirin, clopidogrel) in participants with a known history of atherosclerosis, will yield additional benefit over the existing standard of care without vorapaxar in preventing heart attack and stroke.

The study is also designed to assess risk of bleeding with vorapaxar added to the standard of care versus the standard of care alone.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Kaplan-Meier Estimate of the Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Cardiovascular (CV) Death, Myocardial Infarction (MI), Stroke, or Urgent Coronary Revascularization (UCR) Within 3 Years From Randomization [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time (in days) from study start to the first occurrence of any of the following clinical outcomes was recorded: CV death, MI, stroke, or UCR. A Clinical Endpoints Committee (CEC) reviewed and adjudicated each suspected efficacy endpoint event while blinded to treatment. Participants who did not have any endpoint event until last visit or participants who were lost to follow-up and had no event were censored at the time of last available information (last study visit). If a participant had a fatal event that was not part of a specific endpoint for analysis, they were censored at the time of death. The Kaplan-Meier estimate reports the percentage of participants who experienced CV death, MI, stroke, or UCR within 3 years from randomization.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Kaplan-Meier Estimate of the Percentage of Participants Who Experienced CV Death, MI, or Stroke Within 3 Years From Randomization [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time (in days) from study start to the first occurrence of any of the following clinical outcomes was recorded: CV death, MI, or stroke. A CEC reviewed and adjudicated each suspected efficacy endpoint event while blinded to treatment. Participants who did not have any endpoint event until last visit or participants who were lost to follow-up and had no event were censored at the time of last available information (last study visit). If a participant had a fatal event that was not part of a specific endpoint for analysis, they were censored at the time of death. The Kaplan-Meier estimate reports the percentage of participants who experienced CV death, MI, or stroke within 3 years from randomization.

  • Kaplan-Meier Estimate of the Percentage of Participants Who Met Global Utilization of Streptokinase and Tissue Plasminogen Activator for Occluded Arteries (GUSTO) Moderate or Severe Bleeding Criteria Within 3 Years From Randomization [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Adverse events were categorized as "bleeding events" if the intensity, frequency, or type of the event was other or more than would be normally expected in the given situation (eg, mild nosebleed in a person who does not normally have nosebleeds, greater bruising than expected for a given injury, greater volume of blood loss than expected for a given procedure). The investigator graded the intensity of bleeding events according to the GUSTO cooperative group criteria as follows: Mild , Moderate or Severe and the grading was adjudicated by the CEC. The Kaplan-Meier estimate reports the percentage of participants who experienced GUSTO moderate or severe bleeding within 3 years from randomization.

  • Kaplan-Meier Estimate of the Percentage of Participants Who Experienced Clinically Significant Bleeding Within 3 Years From Randomization [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Adverse events were categorized as "bleeding events" if the intensity, frequency, or type of the event was other or more than would be normally expected in the given situation (eg, mild nosebleed in a person who does not normally have nosebleeds, greater bruising than expected for a given injury, greater volume of blood loss than expected for a given procedure). The investigator graded the intensity of bleeding events according to the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) Study Group criteria as major, minor or other. "Clinically Significant Bleeding" was defined as the composite of TIMI Major bleeding, TIMI Minor bleeding, or bleeding that required unplanned medical or surgical treatment or unplanned laboratory evaluation even if it did not meet the criteria for TIMI major or minor bleeding. The Kaplan-Meier estimate reports the percentage of participants who experienced clinically significant bleeding within 3 years from randomization.
