Patients With SAT or LT After Stent Implantation (PCI)

Further study details as provided by RWTH Aachen University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The aim of this study is to establish diagnostic markers for prediction of SAT and LT, respectively, by identification of CD39 and CD73-activity and EPC-number and function, respectively. [ Time Frame: may 08 to may 2010 ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

1 sample of approximately 30 mL blood will be taken from each patient of both study group.

CD39 and CD73 activity as well as EPC-number and function will be analyzed.

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: May 2008
Study Completion Date: May 2010
Primary Completion Date: May 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Patients having developed an in-stent-thrombosis (40 SAT, 40 LT)
Patients having not developed an in-stent-thrombosis after stent implantation using PTCA

Detailed Description:

In this prospective, open, not-randomized, controlled single-center pilot study 80 patients having had an in-stent-thrombosis (40 sub-acute thromboses (SAT), 40 late thromboses (LT)) and a control group of 80 patients having not developed a thrombosis will be compared.

The aim of this study is the establishment of diagnostic markers vor prediction of SAT (detection of CD39- and CD73-activity, respectively)and of LT (EPC-number and function, respectively) correspondingly aiming at the early identification of patients with high risk for developing an in-stent-thrombosis.
