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.

capture

Cardiac pacing Depolarization of the atria and/or ventricles by an electrical stimulus delivered by an artificial pacemaker; one-to-one capture occurs when each electrical stimulus causes a corresponding depolarization. See Stimulation threshold.

There was no significant difference in capture rates (number captured per night) of P.
1) support our predictions that experimental traps would not differ significantly from dirty traps in the capture of P.
Our results support previous results that dirty traps cause sexual bias in capture results (Whittaker et al.
Our results also document season (month) as a potential influence on the capture rates of small mammals (Fig.
Reduced sexual bias, reduced risk of disease transmission, and similar capture rates clearly support the use of experimentally scented traps in field biology.
