Non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes are a dramatic manifestation of coronary artery disease. Multiple clinical trials have shown that early cardiac catheterization improves clinical outcomes in patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes. Many antithrombotic agents effectively manage unstable coronary syndromes and serve as adjuncts to percutaneous coronary intervention. Yet, the growing number of pharmacologic agents makes early management of non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes increasingly complex. We review the current evidence regarding the optimal integration of early antithrombotic and antiplatelet therapies with early coronary angiography and subsequent revascularization.

ABSTRACT: CV Therapeutics, under license from Roche (formerly Syntex), is developing ranolazine (Ranexa), a metabolic modulator and a partial fatty acid oxidation inhibitor, for the potential treatment of angina and acute coronary syndromes. By October 2004, enrollment in the phase III MERLIN TIMI-36 study was ongoing and the company anticipated completion by the end of the first quarter of 2005.
