Study of Policosanol to Improve Platelet Reactivity After Percutaneous Coronary Stent Implantation (PCI) (spirit)

This study has been completed.

Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Han Yaling, Shenyang Northern Hospital
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01371058
First received: May 31, 2011
Last updated: December 15, 2015
Last verified: December 2015
  Purpose

Thrombotic event is one of the most serious complications of coronary artery disease, which often result in myocardial infarction and even death. Even according to the standard guidelines for antiplatelet therapy, there are still 6% to 15% of patients occur thrombotic events, in high-risk patients, the proportion is higher, this phenomenon is called anti-platelet drug resistance in clinical practice

The aim of this multicenter prospective, randomized, controlled study is to observed policosanol on aspirin or clopidogrel resistance in patients with platelet aggregation after Percutaneous Coronary Stent Implantation (PCI) and occurrence of platelet aggregation and short-term prognosis to find new ways to the prevention of platelet aggregation .


Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease Drug: high maintenance clopidogrel Drug: routine dual antiplatelet Drug: policosanol plus dual antiplatelet Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Study of Policosanol to Improve High on Clopidogrel Platelet Reactivity After Percutaneous Coronary Stent Implantation(Spirit)
