- Among the 18,624 patients hospitalized with ACS, 11,289 (60.6%) either had a previous stent implanted (n=1,404) or underwent stenting during the course of the trial (n=9,885).
- In the PLATO study, BRILINTA plus aspirin reduced stent thrombosis vs clopidogrel plus aspirin at one year: for adjucated “definite” 1.3% (n=71) vs 1.9% (n=106) (HR, 0.67 [95% confidence interval (CI), 0.50-0.91]; P=0.009).
- The reduction in definite stent thrombosis was evaluated among numerous factors including ACS type (NSTEMI or STEMI), diabetes, stent type (drug-eluting or bare metal), CYP2C19 genetic status, dose of clopidogrel pre-randomization, or use of GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors at randomization. This analysis showed no statistical interaction for the factors evaluated.
- The reduction in definite stent thrombosis with ticagrelor was also evaluated for late (> 30 days), sub-acute (24 hours – 30 days) and acute (< 24 hours) stent thrombosis.
- In the PLATO study overall, there was no significant difference in Total Major Bleeding at 12 months (which includes Fatal and Life-threatening bleeding) for BRILINTA vs clopidogrel (11.6% vs 11.2%). There was a somewhat greater risk of Non–CABG-related Major plus Minor Bleeding for BRILINTA vs clopidogrel (8.7% vs 7.0%) and Non–CABG-related Major Bleeding (4.5% vs 3.8%), respectively. PLATO trial did not show an advantage for BRILINTA compared with clopidogrel for CABG-related Bleeding (Total Major 85.8% vs 86.9% and Fatal/Life-threatening 48.1% vs 47.9%, respectively).*
