Abstract

Antithrombotic therapy is a critical component of the management of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients treated with primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Rapid and profound inhibition of platelet reactivity has been shown to mitigate the ischemic risks and improve myocardial salvage. High residual platelet reactivity (HRPR) has been reported up to 4 or 6 h after loading dose of prasugrel or ticagrelor; therefore, multiple alternative strategies, including crushed or chewed oral tables or intravenous agents, have been investigated to provide a more rapid and sustained inhibition of platelet function and bridge the initial treatment gap. The FABOLUS FASTER is the first investigator-initiated, multicentre, open-label, prospective, randomized study to directly compare the pharmacodynamics effects of cangrelor, tirofiban, chewed or integer prasugrel. This study will add new insights in the management of antiplatelet therapy in patients with STEMI undergoing primary PCI and might be hypothesis-generating for future clinical trials in this field. The trial is registered on clinicaltrials.gov NCT02978040, and EudraCT 2017-001065-24.
