Identification of low responders to a 300-mg clopidogrel loading dose in patients undergoing coronary stenting.

Thromb. Res.. 2005;115(1):101-8, PMID: 15567460

Although patients undergoing coronary stenting routinely receive dual antiplatelet treatment to reduce the risk of stent thrombosis, this undesired event still occurs. A suboptimal response to clopidogrel treatment (low responders) has been suggested to contribute to stent thrombosis. In the present study, platelet function profiles were assessed in patients undergoing coronary stenting receiving a standard 300-mg clopidogrel loading dose with the aim to identify low clopidogrel responders.
