Beyond its immunosuppressive properties, ciclosporine A (CsA) can also inhibit the opening of a mitochondrial mega-channel called the permeability transition pore (mPTP). Opening of the mPTP plays a key role in cardiomyocyte death during reperfusion following a prolonged ischemic insult. Ciclosporin A has been shown to reduce infarct size when administered at reperfusion in experimental models. The objective of the present study is to determine whether administration of CsA at reperfusion in patients with ongoing acute myocardial infarction treated by coronary angioplasty might reduce infarct size.

Further study details as provided by Hospices Civils de Lyon:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Infarct size evaluated primarily by the area under the curve of CK and troponin I release over the first 72 hours of reperfusion.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Myocardial contractile reserve assessed by dobutamine echocardiography at day 5.
  • No reflow evaluated by MRI at day 5
  • Recovery of myocardial contraction assessed by echocardiography and MRI at month 3

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: September 2004

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 90 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male and female patients, aged more than 18, with suspected first acute myocardial infarction
  • Within 12 hours of the onset of chest pain
  • With a need for emergency revascularization by angioplasty. Patients must display a fully occluded (TIMI zero flow) culprit coronary artery, absence of visible collaterals and exhibit TIMI flow >2 after direct stenting by angioplasty.

Exclusion Criteria:
