Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The aim of the present study is to demonstrate the superior antinflammatory effect of Clopidogrel and Aspirin vs Aspirin or Clopidogrel alone in term of levels of selected circulating inflammatory markers [ Time Frame: three months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The aim of the present study is to demonstrate the superior antiplatelet effect of Clopidogrel and Aspirin vs Aspirin or Clopidogrel alone in term of TXA2 serum levels [ Time Frame: three months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
