Brief Summary:
Safety and efficacy of adjunctive antiplatelet therapy prior to primary percutaneous intervention (PCI) in patients with ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myocardial Infarction Drug: placebo Drug: PRT060128 Potassium Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Patients with STEMI who are to undergo primary PCI will be randomized to an intravenous (iv) bolus of placebo vs. PRT060128 prior to angiography.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 70 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Randomized Trial to Evaluate Effect of Adjunctive Antiplatelet Therapy With Intravenous PRT060128, a Selective P2Y12-Receptor Inhibitor, Before Primary Percutaneous Intervention (PCI) in ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) Patients

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Patients With Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) Major/Minor Bleeding, Global Use of Strategies to Open Occluded Coronary Arteries (GUSTO) Severe/Moderate Bleeding Through Hospital Discharge, and Intracranial Hemorrhage Through 30 Days [ Time Frame: 30 days ]

    TIMI Major:Intracranial bleeding or a decrease in the hemoglobin concentration of 5g/dL or more, or 15% or greater decrease in hematocrit.

    TIMI Minor:Hemoglobin concentration decreased by 3g/dL (but <5g/dL) or the hematocrit decreased by 10-15%.

    GUSTO Severe/life threatening:Intracranial hemorrhage or bleeding that causes hemodynamic compromise requiring intervention.

    GUSTO Moderate:Bleeding that requires bloodtransfusion but does not lead to hemodynamic compromise requiring intervention.

    Stroke:New focal neurologic deficit that does not resolve within 24 hours.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Corrected TIMI Frame Count (cTFC) in the Infarct Artery on the Initial Diagnostic Angiogram Before Primary PCI [ Time Frame: Time for contrast to reach a standardized distal coronary landmark in the culprit vessel ]
    This measure was used to assess flow in the epicardial artery. It is the number of cine frames required for contrast to reach a standardized distal coronary landmark in the culprit vessel and was to be counted using an electronic frame counter.

  2. Percentage ST-segment Resolution Prior to PCI [ Time Frame: Before primary PCI ]
    The relative effect of PRT060128 on ST-segment measured after PCI and expressed as a percent of ST-Segment prior to PCI. This measure was used to evaluate the dethrombotic and early reperfusion effects of PRT060128 in STEMI.
