ABSTRACT This study sought to compare the effect of 2 proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) on platelet response to clopidogrel after coronary stenting for non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE ACS).
Use of omeprazole has been reported to significantly decrease the clopidogrel antiplatelet effect because of cytochrome P450 interaction. Because all PPIs are metabolized by CYP2C19, but to a varying degree, we hypothesized that the reported negative omeprazole-clopidogrel drug interaction may not be caused by a class effect.
A total of 104 patients undergoing coronary stenting for NSTE ACS were prospectively included and randomized to omeprazole or pantoprazole 20 mg. They received at discharge 75-mg aspirin and 150-mg clopidogrel. Platelet reactivity index (PRI) vasoactive stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP) was used to assess clopidogrel response and adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-induced aggregation for platelet reactivity (ADP-Ag).
After 1 month, patients receiving pantoprazole had a significantly better platelet response to clopidogrel as assessed with the PRI VASP: 36 +/- 20% versus 48 +/- 17% (p = 0.007). We identified more clopidogrel nonresponders in the omeprazole group than in the pantoprazole group: 44% versus 23% (p = 0.04), odds ratio: 2.6 (95% confidence interval: 1.2 to 6.2). Conversely, we did not observe any significant difference in platelet reactivity with ADP-Ag between the omeprazole and pantoprazole groups: 52 +/- 15% and 50 +/- 18%, respectively (p = 0.29).
The present findings suggest the preferential use of pantoprazole compared with omeprazole in patients receiving clopidogrel to avoid any potential negative interaction with CYP2C19.

    ABSTRACT: P2Y12 inhibitors are widely used in patients with acute coronary syndromes and in the secondary prevention of thrombotic events in vascular diseases. Within the past few years, several pharmacological, genetic, and clinical limitations of the second-generation thienopyridine clopidogrel have raised major concerns. High on-treatment platelet reactivity, which is common in clopidogrel-treated patients, and its clinical implications led to the development of the more effective platelet P2Y12 inhibitors prasugrel (a third-generation thienopyridine) and ticagrelor (a cyclopentyl-triazolo-pyrimidine). The pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of prasugrel and ticagrelor indicate that they provide more consistent, more rapid, and more potent platelet inhibition than clopidogrel, which translates into improved ischemic outcomes. Nevertheless, higher efficacy, which is reflected by low on-treatment platelet reactivity, increases the risk of major bleeding events. Therefore, cardiologists might be facing a new challenge in the future: to individualize the level of platelet inhibition in order to decrease thrombotic events without increasing bleeding. The current review focuses on the use of platelet function testing and pharmacogenomic testing in order to identify patients who either do not respond to or are at risk of not responding sufficiently to P2Y12 inhibitors. Moreover, this paper discusses randomized trials, which so far have failed to show that tailored antiplatelet therapy improves clinical outcome, and treatment options for patients with high on-treatment platelet reactivity.

    ABSTRACT: The response to clopidogrel, and some kind of the drug interaction are multifactorial. We enrolled 174 consecutive patients and determined CYP2C19 genotypes, measured platelet aggregation, and assessed the relationship between CYP2C19 genotype and platelet reactivity 24hours after clopidogrel administration, and the risk of cardiovascular events over 18months follow-up. A sub analysis examined the impact of rabeprazole, a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) less affected by CYP2C19. The CYP2C19 genotype was extensive metabolizer (EM) in 36%, intermediate metabolizer (IM) in 45%, and poor metabolizer (PM) in 19%. Platelet reactivity was significantly lower in the EM group than in the IM and PM groups (EM, IM, PM: 3560±1404, 4203±1302, 5084±1007AU•min, P<0.05). The cardiovascular event rate was higher in the IM and PM groups than in the EM group (12.7% and 12.5% vs 1.6%; Hazard ratio for IM 10.6, P=0.029; for PM 11.3, P=0.040). No differences were seen between patients taking (N=50) and not taking (N=124) rabeprazole in residual platelet aggregation (4407±1360 vs 4048±1394, AU•min, P=0.2782), or in cardiovascular events (10.0% vs 8.1%, HR 0.97, P=0.97). CYP2C19 genotype is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular events following stent implantation in Japanese patients.

    ABSTRACT: The role of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) in hemostasis has recently gained increased attention. Here, we demonstrate, by qRT-PCR and western blot, that human platelets express both AhR mRNA and AhR protein. AhR protein levels increase in a dose dependent manner when incubated with either 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) or omeprazole. Treatment of platelets with puromycin blocks increased AhR protein synthesis in the presence of AhR activators. Additionally, treatment of platelets with either activator results in phosphorylation of p38MAPK and cPLA2, two key signaling molecules in platelet activation pathways. Using the AhR competitive inhibitors alpha naphthoflavone and CH-223191, we show that phosphorylation of p38MAPK is AhR dependent. Further, inhibition of p38MAPK blocks downstream cPLA2 phosphorylation induced by TCDD or omeprazole. Treatment with AhR activators results in platelet priming, as demonstrated by increased platelet aggregation, which is inhibited by AhR antagonists. Our data support a model of the platelet AhR non-genomic pathway in which treatment with AhR activators results in increased expression of the AhR, phosphorylation of p38MAPK and cPLA2, leading to platelet priming in response to agonist.
