THEMIS Study

  1. 1. Silvia Valbuena LópezTHEMIS Study THEMIS: Ticagrelor Added to Aspirin in Patients with Stable Coronary Disease and Diabetes NEJM. September 1, 2019. DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa1908077
  2. 2. Silvia Valbuena LópezTHEMIS Study BACKGROUND • Patients with CAD and DM2 are a group at particular high risk of CV events • Previous research has shown a benefit of ticagrelor after ACS or in patients with a history of MI • The hypothesis is that DAPT with ticagrelor in addition to aspirin in patients with DM2 and CAD without a history of stroke or MI could benefit these patients
  3. 3. Silvia Valbuena LópezTHEMIS Study TRIAL DESIGN • Multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trial • Ticagrelor vs placebo on top of low-dose aspirin (75-150 mg) • Inclusion criteria  patients >50 years old without prior MI or stroke - DM2 (at least 6 months with oral therapy) - CAD (angiographic stenosis >50% o previous revascularization) • Ticagrelor dose was 90 mg bid initially, but switched to 60 mg bid after data from the PEGASUS trial • Endpoints - Primary efficacy endpoint  composite of CV death, MI or stroke - Secondary efficacy endpoint  CV death, MI, ischaemic stroke and all-cause death - Primary safety endpoint  major bleeding (TIMI)

  10. 10. Silvia Valbuena LópezTHEMIS Study LIMITATIONS • Change of ticagrelor dose from 90 mg to 60 mg during the trial • Reduction in ischaemic events at the cost of an increase in major bleeding, including traumatic intracranial bleeding • Higher rate of treatment discontinuation in the ticagrelor group
  11. 11. Silvia Valbuena LópezTHEMIS Study CONCLUSIONS • In patients with stable CAD and DM2, but without a prior history of MI or stroke, adding ticagrelor to aspirin resulted in a reduction of the primary endpoint of CV death, MI or stroke • Higher rates of major bleeding were observed in the ticagrelor group • A long-term DAPT strategy may be beneficial in selected patients at low risk of bleeding but high risk of ischaemic events
