The primary outcome measure of this study is the ability to reverse the anticoagulant effects of heparin (as measured by ACT) to the same extent as is known for protamine. intravenous infusion of PMX-60056. [ Time Frame: Immediately post completion of PCI procedure, until 2 hours after last dose. ]

Reversal of Heparin in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
A Phase 2 Proof of Concept Study of PMX-60056 for the Reversal of Heparin in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
The study investigates the safety and efficacy of PMX-60056 for the Reversal of Heparin in Patients Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
PMX-60056 is being developed as a rapid and effective reversal agent for use in those situations where anticoagulation by heparin, or LMWH must be quickly stopped. Potential uses include reversal of anticoagulation induced to prevent clotting during surgical procedures, and rescue from cases of inadvertent or unexpected overdose.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. The patient requires emergency surgery under conditions which prevent compliance with this protocol or which might cause unacceptable risk to the patient.
  2. The patient requires any concomitant surgical procedures (e.g., carotid artery, CABG) during the PCI.
  3. The patient has received any investigational drug within 30 days of study enrollment, or has had any prior exposure to PMX-60056.
  4. The patient has any condition or abnormality which may, in the opinion of the Investigator, compromise the safety of the patient.
  5. The patient is pregnant or breast feeding.
  6. The patient is of childbearing potential and not under adequate contraceptive protection.
  7. The patient has a history of clinically significant hematologic disease including heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, bleeding disorders, or platelet count <100,000.
