Azithromycin Coronary Events Study. A trial that asked whether Chlamydia pneumoniae infection is causally associated with cardiovascular disease and, if so, whether azithromycin treatment would reduce the risk of subsequent coronary events.
Randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled test; adults with stable coronary heart disease. ACES was sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, & Blood Institute; participants randomised to treatment received 600 mg of azithromycin orally once/week X 1 year, then were followed for a mean of 4 years.
Composite—coronary heart disease death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, hospitalisation for unstable angina, coronary revascularisation.
