Trials in acute myocardial infarction

Published

Journal Article

An precedented number of clinical trials are now being conducted in acute myocardial infarction (MI). Three broad avenues of research are being explored: (1) treatment strategies to achieve normal reperfusion in the infarct-related artery as soon as possible after symptom onset; (2) therapies to reduce reperfusion injury and/or improve myocardial function after patency has been restored; and (3) approaches to lower mortality in patients with cardiogenic shock. In this second article in a series edited by Dr. Robert M. Califf of Duke, Dr. E. Magnus Ohman provides capsule summaries of trials in each of these areas.
