Abstract

It has been previously demonstrated that ticagrelor can reduce mortality compared to clopidogrel in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients. However, the mechanism for this mortality reduction remains uncertain. The objective of the present study is to assess the impact of chronic ticagrelor treatment on microvascular circulation. A total of 120 participants aged 20–85 years with clinical diagnosis of ACS will be randomized in a 1:1 fashion to the following two groups: ticagrelor 90 mg twice daily; clopidogrel 75 mg once daily. To evaluate the status of microcirculation, the primary end point is coronary microvascular dysfunction measured using an index of microcirculatory resistance (IMR) at 6 months after receiving the study agent. The purpose of this trial is to investigate whether ticagrelor, beyond its antiplatelet efficacy, could improve coronary microcirculation more effectively than clopidogrel for patients with ACS.
