antiplatelet effect of aspirin

  1. 1. The antiplatelet effect of aspirin is reduced by proton pump inhibitors in patients with coronary artery disease Heart 2010;96:368-71 Presented by : DR AFIA SALEEM
  2. 2. Introduction Aspirin is the mainstay of secondary antithrombotic treatment Aspirin treatment carries a risk of dyspepsia and upper gastrointestinal bleeding Often combined with PPIS
  3. 3. PPIs exert their antacid effect by inhibiting the H+/K+exchanging ATPase of the gastric parietal cells Raising intragastric PH Under physiologic acidic conditions,asprin is absorbed in lipid state by passive diffusion across membrane
  4. 4. Increased PH cause reduction in Lipophilicity of aspirin Compromises bioavailability and Efficacy of Aspirin Soluble serum P-selectin (sP-selectin) is regarded a marker of platelet activation. TxB2 is regarded as the most specific test for measuring the inhibitory effect of aspirin on platelets
  5. 5. Objectives The main purpose of this study was to investigate whether patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) treated with PPI had a reduced platelet response aspirin, as shown by increased residual platelet aggregation and platelet activation, compared with patients with CAD not taking PPIs
  6. 6. Study population Patients 418 stable patients with CAD, 54 of whom were treated with PPIs. All patients were treated with non-enteric coated aspirin 75 mg/day and received no other antithrombotic drugs . Study Design Case control study
  7. 7. INCLUSION CRITERIA Patients ≥18 years of age with angiographically verified CAD receiving low-dose (75 mg) non-enteric coated aspirin treatment were included in the study EXCLUSION CRITERIA . 1. aspirin intolerance, 2 .any acute or chronic disease (apart from CAD), 3. use of anticoagulants or any drugs known to affect platelet function (including clopidogrel and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), 4. Pregnancy 5, gastrointestinal bleeding within the past month 6, platelet count <120×109/l 7. any ischaemic event or revascularisation procedures (percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary artery bypass grafting) within the previous 12 months . 8 inability to give informed consent
  8. 8. Main outcome measures Platelet aggregation was measured by multiplate((Dynabyte, Munich, Germany) whole blood aggregometry induced by arachidonic acid 1 .0 mmol/l and expressed as Area under aggregation curve(aggregation units *min) Platelet activation was assessed by soluble serum P- selectin. Compliance was confirmed by serum thromboxane B2 levels.
  9. 9. Platelet aggregation assessed by Multiplate
  10. 10. Platelet activation assessed by sP-selectin
  11. 11. Effects on S-TxB2 Levels (Compliance). Subjects S-TxB2 levels Geometric mean Range(ng/ml) Healthy subjects 327+/-123 - No PPI with Aspirin 0.04-18.18 0.96(95%CI 0.88 to 1.05) PPI with Aspirin 0.84-1.01 1.29(95%CI 0.96 to 1.72)
  12. 12. Conclusion Patients with CAD treated with PPIs had a reduced response to aspirin, as shown by increased residual platelet aggregation and platelet activation, compared with patients with CAD not taking PPIs. Concomitant use of aspirin and PPIs might leave patients at an increased risk of thrombotic events. These findings may affect the clinical practice of antithrombotic treatment. In view of the widespread use of PPIs, a randomised double-blind crossover study (PPI vs placebo + aspirin) is needed to explore further the inhibitory effect of PPIs on aspirin.
