Cyclosporine and Prognosis in Acute Myocardial Infarction (MI) Patients (CIRCUS)

Brief Summary:
Infarct size is a major determinant of prognosis after Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI). The investigators recently reported that cyclosporine A, when administered immediately prior to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), can significantly reduce infarct size in STEMI (ST Elevation acute Myocardial Infarction) patients. The objective of the present study is to determine whether cyclosporine can improve STEMI patient clinical outcome. Nine-hundred and seventy two patients with ST elevation MI will be entered into a multicentre, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded study. They will receive one single injection of cyclosporine A (CicloMulsion, verum) or an equivalent volume of placebo prior to reperfusion therapy by PCI. The incidence of the combined endpoint (mortality, hospitalization for heart failure, left ventricular (LV) remodeling) will be assessed at one year and three years after treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Ejection fraction [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
    Functional outcome

  2. Left-Ventricular End-Diastolic Volume (LVEDV) [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
    Functional outcome

  3. Left-Ventricular End-Systolic Volume (LVESV) [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
    Functional outcome

  5. Cardiovascular death [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
  6. Heart failure [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
    In-hospital worsening of heart failure after reperfusion, or rehospitalization for: a)worsening of a heart failure existing at admission, b)appearance of "new" heart failure

  7. Myocardial infarction [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
  8. Unstable angina [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
  9. Stroke [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
  10. Infarct size [ Time Frame: at 1 year ]
    Measured by cardiac MRI, only for patients included in participating centers where cardiac MRI is part of the usual post-infarct care

  11. Infarct size: peak Troponin (T or I) [ Time Frame: At admission and at 4 hours (+/- 30 minutes) after study treatment administration ]
    Explorative outcome. Cardiac prognostic factors.

  12. Microvascular obstruction (no reflow) [ Time Frame: During hospitalization at admission ]
    Explorative outcome. Cardiac prognostic factors.
