  Purpose
This is a 3-period study. Periods 1 and 2 will evaluate the effects of multiple doses of laropiprant on the antiplatelet effects of clopidogrel and aspirin administered in combination in participants with primary hypercholesterolemia or mixed dyslipidemia. Period 3 will be open-label and will evaluate single dose pharmacokinetics of nicotinic acid and laropiprant components of Tredaptive.

Condition Intervention Phase
Primary Hypercholesterolemia Mixed Hyperlipidemia Drug: niacin (+) laropiprant Drug: Comparator: aspirin Drug: Comparator: clopidogrel Drug: Comparator: laropiprant Drug: Comparator: placebo Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Study to Evaluate the Effects of Laropiprant on the Antiplatelet Effects of Clopidogrel and Aspirin in Combination and to Evaluate Single Dose Pharmacokinetics of MK0524A in Subjects With Primary Hypercholesterolemia or Mixed Dyslipidemia

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cutaneous Bleeding Time (BT) [ Time Frame: Day 8 ]

    Cutaneous bleeding Time (BT) on Day 8 after daily administration of laropiprant with aspirin and clopidogrel for 7 days versus BT on Day 8 after daily administration of placebo with aspirin and clopidogrel for 7 days.

    The model used included treatment, period and sequence as fixed effect variables and subjects as the random effect variable.

    Period 3 was not analyzed as bleeding time was not an objective for this part of the study.
