A Systematic Review of the Studies That Evaluate the Performance of the DAPT Score

105 views | Jun 21 2020

Chun Shing Kwok et al. showd that the DAPT score had modest predictive value for ischemic and bleeding outcomes.A prospective randomized controlled trial was needed to evaluate the clinical benefits of utilising the DAPT score in guiding continued DAPT therapy beyond 1 year. [Read the Full Post]

Notch signaling pathway is a potential therapeutic target for extracranial vascular malformations

471 views | Aug 18 2019

Davis RB et al. showed that two gamma secretase inhibitors (GSIs), DAPT (GSI-IX) and RO4929097, cause dose-dependent inhibition of Notch target gene expression (Hey1) and rate of migration of monolayer cultures of lymphatic endothelial cells (hLECs) and blood endothelial cells (HUVEC). GSIs also inhibit HUVEC network formation. hLECs are more sensitive to GSIs compared to HUVEC. GSIs have been found to be safe in clinical trials in patients with Alzheimer's disease or cancer. Our results provide further rationale to support testing of Notch inhibitors in patients with extracranial vascular malformations. [Read the Full Post]

Clinical relevance of ticagrelor monotherapy following 1-month dual antiplatelet therapy after bifurcation percutaneous coronary intervention: Insight from GLOBAL LEADERS trial

307 views | Aug 16 2019

Kogame N et al. found that after PCI for bifurcation lesions using 1-month of DAPT followed by ticagrelor monotherapy for 23 months did not demonstrate explicit benefit regarding all-cause death or new Q-wave MI as in the overall trial. [Read the Full Post]

Inhibition of the NOTCH pathway using γ-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 has limited antitumor activity in established glial tumors

1531 views | Feb 05 2019

Dantas-Barbosa C et al. indicated that RO4929097-mediated effects were independent of NOTCH1 mutation status or expression levels, but associated with low IL-6 levels. In established glial tumor models, NOTCH inhibition had limited effects as a single agent, but enhanced efficacy when combined with DNA-interfering agents. These preclinical data need to be considered for further clinical development of NOTCH inhibitors in glial tumors. [Read the Full Post]
