Clopidogrel is an anti-platelet medication approved by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for use in patients who undergo Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) with coronary stent implantation. Anti-platelet medications work to prevent blood clots from forming. Some studies have suggested that patients who have a certain genetic liver enzyme abnormality (known as cytochrome P450 2C19 [CYP2C19] *2 or *3 allele) may have a reduced ability to activate clopidogrel, and therefore may have a lowered response to clopidogrel. It is thought that perhaps people who have a coronary stent procedure may have this genetic liver enzyme abnormality. There is a research genetic test available to determine whether or not someone has this genetic liver enzyme abnormality. Ticagrelor, is a newer anti-platelet drug that is not dependent on the CYP2C19 liver enzyme for its activation and hence in poor clopidogrel metabolizers, alternative drugs like Ticagrelor have been recommended for use as an anti-platelet agent after PCI. The purpose of this study is to determine if genetic testing can identify the best anti-platelet therapy, for patients who undergo a coronary stent placement and do not activate clopidogrel very well.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of the a major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) [ Time Frame: Randomization, one year after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    MACE will include non-fatal myocardial infarction, non-fatal stroke, cardiovascular mortality, severe recurrent ischemia, and stent thrombosis

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of subjects with reduced function CYP2C19 allele(s) who have major or minor bleeding [ Time Frame: One year after PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Clopidogrel then Retrospective Genotyping
Standard clinical practice of clopidogrel 75 mg daily for one year following PCI. DNA samples taken at baseline will be frozen, then at 12 months will be genotype tested to determine the *2 & *3 reduced function or wild type allele status.
Drug: Clopidogrel
Subjects will receive Clopidogrel, one 75 mg tablet per day by mouth for one year.
Other Name: Plavix
Genetic: Retrospective Genotype testing
Mayo Clinic will use ABI TaqMan assay of three variants in the CYP2C10 gene: *2, *3 and *17
Active Comparator: Prospective Genotyping - Clopidogrel
Patients with the wild type CYP2C19 allele (based on prospective genotype testing) will be assigned to receive a clopidogrel 75mg tablet daily for one year following PCI.
Drug: Clopidogrel
Subjects will receive Clopidogrel, one 75 mg tablet per day by mouth for one year.
Other Name: Plavix
Genetic: Prospective Genotype testing
Rapid turnaround Spartan^TM Bioscience in vitro diagnostic assay for analysis of three variants in the CYP2C19 gene: *2, *3 and *17
Active Comparator: Prospective Genotyping - Ticagrelor
Patients with the CYP2C19 heterozygous and homozygous *2 and *3 reduced function allele (based on prospective genotype testing) will be assigned to receive a ticagrelor 90 mg tablet twice per day for one year following PCI.
Drug: Ticagrelor
Subjects will receive Ticagrelor, one 90 mg tablet twice per day by mouth.
Other Name: Brilinta

Rapid turnaround Spartan^TM Bioscience in vitro diagnostic assay for analysis of three variants in the CYP2C19 gene: *2, *3 and *17

Detailed Description:
TAILOR-PCI is a multi-site, open label, prospective, randomized trial testing the hypothesis that after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), using a genotyping strategy ticagrelor 90 mg twice per day is superior to clopidogrel 75 mg per day in reducing a composite endpoint of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), i.e., non-fatal myocardial infarction, non-fatal stroke, severe recurrent ischemia, cardiovascular (CV) death, and stent thrombosis (primary endpoints) in CYP2C19 reduced function allele patients. Patients who undergo PCI will be randomized to a conventional therapy arm (i.e., to receive clopidogrel 75 mg once daily without prospective genotyping guidance) versus a prospective CYP2C19 genotype-based anti-platelet therapy approach (ticagrelor 90 mg bid in CYP2C19 *2 or *3 reduced function allele patients, clopidogrel 75 mg once daily in non-*2 or -*3 CYP2C19 patients). Buccal swabs will be obtained for those subjects randomized to the prospective genotyping arm. All subjects will have a blood sample drawn for DNA analysis but genotyping using these DNA samples will be performed only after completion of the duration of anti-platelet therapy (i.e., after one year). The primary endpoints will be assessed prospectively and will be compared between the conventional arm and the prospective genotyping arm among those identified as reduced function CYP2C19 allele carriers according to the 1-year genotype results.
