Abstract

BACKGROUND: In recent years, genetic factors have attracted research interest as important predisposing factors for cardiovascular susceptibility. This study aimed to investigate the influences of dual-dose clopidogrel, clopidogrel combined with tongxinluo, and ticagrelor on the platelet activity and MACE events of patients with CYP2C19*2 gene function deficiency and poor clopidogrel response after PCI.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: We selected 458 patients with coronary heart disease undergoing PCI, and the genotype of CYP2C19*2 was detected by TaqMan real-time PCR. We finally enrolled 212 patients and divided them into 4 groups: a standard anti-platelet group of 46 patients, a clopidogrel double-dose group of 50 cases, a clopidogrel combined with tongxinluo group of 59 cases, and a ticagrelor group of 57. The platelet inhibition rate was detected by TEG. We analyzed and compared differences in platelet activity and the occurrence of MACE events in these 4 groups at different follow-up times.

RESULTS: The results showed that inhibition of platelet aggregation was better in the double-dose clopidogrel group, the clopidogrel combined with tongxinluo group, and the ticagrelor group than in the regular-dose clopidogrel group, and ticagrelor was the best. We also found that the total incidence of MACE was much lower in the double-dose clopidogrel group, the clopidogrel combined with tongxinluo group, and the ticagrelor group, while the incidence of hemorrhage in the ticagrelor group was higher.

CONCLUSIONS: Adjusting the dose or combining with other drugs improves the efficacy of anti-platelet therapy and reduces the incidence of ischemic events after PCI.
