Diabetic patients with coronary artery disease
Type 2 diabetic patients with previous coronary artery disease. All patients are routinely treated with aspirin in secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Coronary artery disease is defined as a previous coronary angiography with at least 1 coronary artery stenosis >50%. Type 2 diabetes is defined as patients with diabetes discovered after 30 years old and insulin was not the first treatment except in case of acute coronary syndrome.

Detailed Description:
We have previously demonstrated that there was a time-dependant efficacy of aspirin on platelet function. In this study, we investigate platelet function (fundamental research) according to the delay since last aspirin intake (12 vs 24 hours)in a population of diabetic patients with previous Coronary Artery Disease routinely treated with aspirin. In order to eliminate any variation linked to a cumulative dose effect of aspirn, platelet function is assessed 24 hours after a single 150 mg aspirin intake or 12 hours after a 75 mg aspirin intake given twice per day (corresponding to the same total dose of 150 mg /day). Light transmission aggregometry triggered by arachidonic acid 0.5mg/mL (LTA-AA) is the main endpoint of the study (intensity and velocity of agregation following exposure to arachidonic acid 0.5 mg/ml).

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • oral anticoagulants, heparin, thrombolytic agents, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, prasugrel
  • family or personal history of bleeding or thrombophilic disorders
  • platelet count > 600x103/mm3 or < 150x103/mm3
  • hematocrit > 50% or < 25%
  • creatinine clearance < 30mL/min
  • low compliance before enrollment
  • cancer considered not in remission or those having undergone major surgery within the month prior to enrollment.
