Condition Intervention Phase
Myocardial Infarction
Drug: placebo
Drug: PRT060128 Potassium
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study

Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Patients With Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) Major/Minor Bleeding, Global Use of Strategies to Open Occluded Coronary Arteries (GUSTO) Severe/Moderate Bleeding Through Hospital Discharge, and Intracranial Hemorrhage Through 30 Days [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    TIMI Major:Intracranial bleeding or a decrease in the hemoglobin concentration of 5g/dL or more, or 15% or greater decrease in hematocrit.

    TIMI Minor:Hemoglobin concentration decreased by 3g/dL (but <5g/dL) or the hematocrit decreased by 10-15%.

    GUSTO Severe/life threatening:Intracranial hemorrhage or bleeding that causes hemodynamic compromise requiring intervention.

    GUSTO Moderate:Bleeding that requires bloodtransfusion but does not lead to hemodynamic compromise requiring intervention.

    Stroke:New focal neurologic deficit that does not resolve within 24 hours.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Corrected TIMI Frame Count (cTFC) in the Infarct Artery on the Initial Diagnostic Angiogram Before Primary PCI [ Time Frame: Time for contrast to reach a standardized distal coronary landmark in the culprit vessel ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    This measure was used to assess flow in the epicardial artery. It is the number of cine frames required for contrast to reach a standardized distal coronary landmark in the culprit vessel and was to be counted using an electronic frame counter.

  • Percentage ST-segment Resolution Prior to PCI [ Time Frame: Before primary PCI ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The relative effect of PRT060128 on ST-segment measured after PCI and expressed as a percent of ST-Segment prior to PCI. This measure was used to evaluate the dethrombotic and early reperfusion effects of PRT060128 in STEMI.

Enrollment: 70

Primary Completion Date: July 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: 1
Placebo for each Dose cohort: 10, 20, 40, and 60 mg
Drug: placebo
administration of iv bolus prior to angiography
Experimental: 2
Experimental drug for each Dose cohort: 10, 20, 40, and 60 mg
Drug: PRT060128 Potassium
administration of iv bolus prior to angiography

Detailed Description:

Patients with STEMI who are to undergo primary PCI will be randomized to an intravenous (iv) bolus of placebo vs. PRT060128 prior to angiography.
