Angioplasty, Transluminal, Percutaneous Coronary
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Chimeric Anti-Platelet Therapy (Abciximab) in Unstable Angina Refractory to Standard Medical Therapy Trial (CAPTURE)|

|Primary Completion Date:||December 1995 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Abciximab (c7E3 Fab)
Participants will receive 0.25 milligram per kilogram (mg/kg) of body weight abciximab as bolus intravenous injection followed by continuous infusion of abciximab at rate of 10 microgram per minute for at least 18 hours but not longer than 26 hours.
Other Name: c7E3 Fab
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Participants will receive matching placebo as bolus IV injection followed by continuous infusion of matching placebo for at least 18 hours but no longer than 26 hours.
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.
