CHAMPION PHOENIX Trial Shows Positive Results for Cangrelor
The CHAMPION PHOENIX trial has met its protocol defined primary composite efficacy endpoint of death, myocardial infarction, ischemia driven revascularization and stent thrombosis at 48 hours, and has shown that intravenous bolus and infusion of cangrelor provided statistically significant improvement in ischemic events at 48 hours in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), according to a statement released Jan. 8 by The Medicines Company, sponsor of the study.
"We are looking forward to presenting detailed results to the medical community as soon as the data are fully analyzed," said Deepak L. Bhatt, MD, MPH, FACC, chief of cardiology at VA Boston Healthcare System and co-principal investigator.
Moving forward, Clive Meanwell, MD, PhD, chairman and chief executive officer of The Medicine Company noted that they expect to submit data from the CHAMPION trial and BRIDGE trial in the U.S. and EU for regulatory review for 2013.
