RESEARCH TRIALS



Cordis DAPT Cypress
At present it is the standard of care to have patients with stents take dual antiplatelet therapy for twelve months. The two therapies usually include Plavix and aspirin. The question to be examined is whether there is a benefit to continuing these therapies beyond 12 months. This study will enroll approximately 2,000 patients at 200 centers across the country. Twelve months after the implant of the CYPHER stent, the patients who remain free of complications (heart attack, stroke, restenosis, stent thrombosis, major bleeding, death) will be randomized to two groups: placebo or an additional 18 months of thienopyridine therapy.
