Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Composite of Cardiovascular (CV) Death, MI or Stroke [ Time Frame: From randomisation to primary analysis censoring date (PACD). Median time in study until PACD was 40 months. ]
    Participants with Cardiovascular (CV) death, myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of PACD, last endpoint assessment date and non-CV death date.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. CV Death [ Time Frame: From randomisation to primary analysis censoring date (PACD). Median time in study until PACD was 40 months. ]
    Participants with Cardiovascular (CV) death. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of PACD, last endpoint assessment date and non-CV death date.

  2. MI [ Time Frame: From randomisation to primary analysis censoring date (PACD). Median time in study until PACD was 40 months. ]
    Participants with myocardial infarction. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of primary analysis censoring date (PACD), last endpoint assessment date and death date

  3. Ischaemic Stroke [ Time Frame: From randomisation to primary analysis censoring date (PACD). Median time in study until PACD was 40 months. ]
    Participants with ischaemic stroke. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of PACD, last endpoint assessment date and death date.

  4. All-cause Death [ Time Frame: From randomisation to primary analysis censoring date (PACD). Median time in study until PACD was 40 months. ]
    Participants with all-cause death. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of PACD and last endpoint assessment date. Includes deaths based on publically available vital status data in patients who have withdrawn consent.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. TIMI Major Bleeding Event (Primary Safety Objective) [ Time Frame: From randomisation to 7 days following the date of last dose of study medication. Maximum duration of exposure was 59 months. ]
    Participants with TIMI major bleeding event. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of last endpoint assessment date, death date and 7 days following the date of last dose of study medication

  2. TIMI Major or Minor Bleeding Event [ Time Frame: From randomisation to 7 days following the date of last dose of study medication. Maximum duration of exposure was 59 months. ]
    Participants with TIMI major or minor bleeding event. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of last endpoint assessment date, death date and 7 days following the date of last dose of study medication

  3. PLATO Major Bleeding Event [ Time Frame: From randomisation to 7 days following the date of last dose of study medication. Maximum duration of exposure was 59 months. ]
    Participants with PLATO major bleeding event. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of last endpoint assessment date, death date and 7 days following the date of last dose of study medication

  4. Permanent Discontinuation of Study Medication Due to Any Bleeding Event [ Time Frame: From randomisation to 7 days following the date of last dose of study medication. Maximum duration of exposure was 59 months. ]
    Participants with permanent discontinuation of study medication due to any bleeding event. If no event, censoring occurs at the earliest of last endpoint assessment date, death date and the date of last dose of study medication
