Study Of An Investigational Drug To Prevent Blood Clots And Elevated Blood Pressure In People With Heart Disease

Description

Seeking adults with heart disease who are taking an aspirin to prevent blood clots from forming for a study of an investigational drug to assess if it prevents cells other than platelets from making thromboxane, a natural molecule made by your body to help blood to clot.

Overview

Higher than normal levels of thromboxane for people with heart disease is associated with increased blood pressure and chance of blood clots. Half the participants in the study will receive the investigational drug and half will receive a drug that does not contain any medicine (placebo).

What we're hoping for

We hope that the investigational drug will help maintain normal levels of thromboxane for people with heart disease.
