Clinical validation of AggreGuide A-100 ADP, a novel assay for assessing the antiplatelet effect of oral P2Y12 antagonists.
(Journal Article;Multicenter Study)
In this prospective, 3-arm, repeated-measure multicenter investigation in 280 patients with cardiovascular risk factors, platelet aggregation was measured with the novel AggreGuide A-100 ADP (A-100 ADP) and VerifyNow (VN)-PRU assays at baseline, and after United States Food and Drug Administration approved loading and 7 days maintenance doses of clopidogrel (n = 94), prasugrel (n = 43) or ticagrelor, (n = 143). Based on the predetermined cutoff values of < 4.7 platelet activity index with A-100 ADP assay to indicate antiplatelet response, more than 91% of patients met the criteria following loading and maintenance doses of prasugrel and more than 84% patients met the criteria following loading and maintenance doses of ticagrelor whereas only 32% and 51% of patients met the criteria following loading and maintenance doses of clopidogrel, respectively. The total percent agreement between the A-100 ADP and VN-PRU assays was 89%. The A-100 ADP assay, which includes whole blood in motion, performs comparably to the VN-PRU assay in a study of patients with cardiovascular risk factors treated with P2Y12 inhibitors possessing known differences in antiplatelet potencies.
