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.

On August 26, 1999, Sir John Birt, the BBC's director general at the time, emailed a request to the then Head of Heritage to "work out what we need to do to preserve the BBC's early work on the Internet."

Capturing the detailed information identified above on procurement card transactions requires one of two approaches: (1) The vendor must utilize special procurement card equipment and separately enter the required information at the point-of-sale (or at the time a phone order is placed); or (2) A computer interface must be developed to extract the data from the vendor's point-of-sale system (where the required information is likely to be captured through product numbers, UPC codes, etc.) and to pass it to the processing system of the card issuer where it can subsequently be provided in reports to card users.
