ASIS

ASIS

(1) Active Site Inhibited 7 A trial designed to identify a clinically-effective and safe dosage range of FFR-FVlla (ASIS), a tissue-factor inhibitor, during PCI.
Conclusion FFR-rFVIIa1 tissue factor inhibitor at 400 mg/kg allows PCI at lowered heparin, less ischaemia but greater (generally mild) bleeding.
(2) Angina and Silent Ischemia Study A trial that asked which was the most effective monotherapy—propranolol, diltiazem, or nifedipine—for reducing the frequency and duration of episodic asymptomatic ischaemia in patients with stable exertional angina.
Conclusion It’s difficult to correlate one with another. Different measures of ischaemia (e.g., ambulatory ischemia assessed by ambulatory ECG monitoring, performance on exercise test, and anginal symptoms) are independent. Efficacy for each clinical end point must be assessed separately when considering response to a particular drug treatment.
