Effect of platelet inhibition with cangrelor during PCI on ischemic events

Top

Bhatt DL, Stone GW, Mahaffey KW, et al for the CHAMPION PHOENIX Investigators. Effect of platelet inhibition with cangrelor during PCI on ischemic events. N Engl J Med. 2013;368(14):1303-1313. Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent implantation is frequently used to reduce ischemic complications among patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Despite advances in adjunctive pharmacologic therapy, thrombotic complications during PCI remain a concern.

Moreno PR, Murcia AM, Palacios IF, et al. Coronary composition and macrophage infiltration in atherectomy specimens from patients with diabetes mellitus. Circulation. 2000;102:2180-2184. Lipid-rich, inflamed atherosclerotic lesions are associated with plaque rupture and thrombosis, which are the most important causes of death in patients with diabetes mellitus.

Troglitazone Improves Defects in Insulin Action, Insulin Secretion, Ovarian Steroidogenesis, and Fibrinolysis in Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Top

Ehrmann DA, Schneider DJ, Sobel BE, et al. Troglitazone Improves Defects in Insulin Action, Insulin Secretion, Ovarian Steroidogenesis, and Fibrinolysis in Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.  J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 1997;82:2108-2116. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)are characterized by defects in insulin action, insulin secretion, ovarian steroidogenesis, and fibrinolysis. We administered the insulin-sensitizing agent troglitazone to 13 obese women with PCOS and impaired glucose tolerance to determine whether attenuation of hyperinsulinemia ameliorates these defects.
