Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare clopidogrel with ticagrelor which one has stronger anti-inflammation effect to protect against type 2 diabetes-induced vascular damage.

Condition or disease
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus; Stable Coronary Disease

Detailed Description:

i- Verify the study inclusion and exclusion criteria at visit 1.

ii- Inform patients (verbally and in writing) and their caregivers (when considered necessary and with the patient's consent) of the characteristics of the study and confirm their agreement to participate by signing the informed consent document.

iii- Assist with patient assessment, record the information in the case report form. Based on the data we get from the case report form, assign the patient to the experimental or control group by stratified randomization.

ⅳ- At visit 2 to obtain blood sample from peripheral vessel and analyze the density of CECs,sCD40L and hs-CRP by flow cytometry (FCM), ELISA and particle-enhanced turbidimetric immunoassay.

ⅴ- All patients are given aspirin 100mg/qd orally and the experimental group given ticagrelor 90mg/bid while the control group clopidogrel 75mg/qd for 30 days.

ⅵ- At visit 3 repeating step ⅳ and making comparison on numbers of CECs and CD40L between the two groups, and finish a statistic analysis.

  1. circulation endothelial cell [ Time Frame: 1 month ]

Biospecimen Retention:   None Retained
We will collect blood samples from the vena mediana cubiti, volume of sample blood will be 5ml.Centrifuge samples at 700gfor 20 min at 4 °C with no brake.Remove gently the upper phase (plasma) with a 5 ml pipette into a separate tube and store in 0.25 ml aliquots.Distribute 500 μl of samples into one isotype control and three sample tubes and add the special antibodies.Then account the CECs and sCD40/40L,etc.
