Another 22% of the patients received lipid-lowering agents and 7% received antiplatelet drugs
, which are intended to prevent long-term cardiovascular complications--not beneficial in those with limited life expectancy, the researchers said (JAMA Intern.
The results from the above study thus reflect a need for more specific antiplatelet treatment regimens especially in diabetic subjects, which may include more potent agents or a combination with other antiplatelet drugs
The study published online today in the American Journal of Medicine provides the most up-to-date picture of European cardiologists' prescribing of antithrombotic treatment, which includes oral anticoagulation therapy (warfarin and the novel oral anticoagulants) and antiplatelet drugs
Various clinical studies have probed the effectiveness and risk profile of the newer antiplatelet drugs
in comparison with currently available drugs.
The Swedish version, Coagulation News, has been around for many years, but for the English translation, the chapter on new anticoagulants has been heavily revised, a new chapter added on antiplatelet drugs
, and other changes made.
Among the 6609 patients taking antiplatelet drugs
