CAPTURE

c7E3 Fab Antiplatelet Therapy in Unstable Refractory angina. A trial assessing abciximab therapy + percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) on mortality and incidence of AMI and urgent intervention for recurrent ischaemia.
 
Primary endpoints
Composite of death, MI, or urgent intervention at 30 days of enrolment.
 
Conclusion
The primary endpoint occurred in 16% of abciximab patients and 11% of placebo patients, p = 0.012; patients with medical therapy-refractory unstable angina undergoing PTCA while receiving abciximab have decreased short-term thrombotic complications and MI compared to placebo.

Routine clinical data from all public sector ARV sites in the FS (with the exception of 3 small-town sites not yet online) were entered on an electronic record system (Meditech) by clinic-based data capturers. The data were incorporated in a data warehouse and used for monitoring and evaluation.
Importantly, these effects were not only felt among nurses and doctors but also among pharmacists, lay counsellors, data capturers and health managers.
