  • Kaplan-Meier Estimate of the Percentage of Patients Who Experienced Cardiovascular Death (CV Death), Myocardial Infarction (MI) or Stroke Within 3 Years From Randomization [ Time Frame: Randomization up to 47 months ]
    Participants with CV death, MI or Stroke. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of the efficacy cut-off date 14 Sep 2014, withdrawal of consent, non-CV death or at the last time point of complete clinical event assessment. Events were adjudicated by a blinded endpoint committee. The Kaplan-Meier estimate reports the percentage of patients who experienced CV Death, MI or stroke within 3 years from randomization
  • Kaplan-Meier Estimate of the Percentage of Patients Who Experienced a TIMI Major Bleeding Within 3 Years From First Dose of Study Drug Units: Percentage of Patients [ Time Frame: First dosing up to 48 months ]
    A Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) study group major bleeding is defined as any fatal bleeding (leading directly to death within 7 days), any intrcranial bleeding or any clinically overt signs of haemorrhage associated with a drop in Haemoglobin of >= 5g/dL. Events were adjudicated by a clinical events committee. Censoring ocurrs at 7 days following last dose of study drug. The Kaplan-Meier estimate reports the percentage of patients who experienced a TIMI Major bleeding within 3 years from first dose of study drug
Any event after randomization from the composite of cardiovascular death, non-fatal MI, or non-fatal stroke. [ Time Frame: Within 1 year to 38 months ]

  • Kaplan-Meier Estimate of the Percentage of Patients Who Experienced Cardiovascular Death (CV Death) Within 3 Years From Randomization [ Time Frame: Randomization up to 47 months ]
    Participants with CV death. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of the efficacy cut-off date 14 Sep 2014, withdrawal of consent, non-CV death or at the last time point of complete clinical event assessment. Events were adjudicated by a blinded endpoint committee. The Kaplan-Meier estimate reports the percentage of patients who experienced CV Death within 3 years from randomization
  • Kaplan-Meier Estimate of the Percentage of Patients Who Died From Any Cause Within 3 Years From Randomization [ Time Frame: Randomization up to 47 months ]
    Participants with death from any cause. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of the efficacy cut-off date 14 Sep 2014, withdrawal of consent or the last time point the particapant was known to be alive. Events were adjudicated by a blinded endpoint committee. The Kaplan-Meier estimate reports the percentage of patients who died from any cause within 3 years from randomization
  • Cardiovascular death after randomization [ Time Frame: Within 1 year to 38 months ]
  • All-cause mortality after randomization [ Time Frame: Within 1 year to 38 months ]

Prevention of Cardiovascular Events (eg, Death From Heart or Vascular Disease, Heart Attack, or Stroke) in Patients With Prior Heart Attack Using Ticagrelor Compared to Placebo on a Background of Aspirin
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled, Parallel Group, Multinational Trial, to Assess the Prevention of Thrombotic Events With Ticagrelor Compared to Placebo on a Background of Acetyl Salicylic Acid (ASA) Therapy in Patients With History of Myocardial Infarction
This study is being carried out to see if a new drug called ticagrelor given twice daily in addition to the ASA therapy decreases the frequency of cardiovascular events (e.g., death from heart disease, heart attack, or stroke).
