Current research focus

We have investigated the clinical impact of non-responsiveness to antiplatelet drugs (aspirin and clopidogrel) in a clinical trial (ASCET) where 1 001 patients, with symptomatic, angiographic verified coronary artery disease, were randomized to either of the two drugs. The patients underwent clinically and laboratory tests (incl. several analyzes of platelet function) 4 times over a follow-up period of 2 years. From 2012, we are performing several sub studies from this patient population.
