Background Among patients receiving clopidogrel for coronary artery disease (CAD), concomitant therapy with proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs) has been associated with an increased risk for recurrent coronary events. Patients and Methods FRENA is an ongoing, multicenter, observational registry of consecutive outpatients with CAD, cerebrovascular (CVD) or peripheral artery (PAD) disease. We retrospectively examined the influence of concomitant use of PPIs on outcome in patients receiving clopidogrel. Results As of March 2009, 1222 patients were using clopidogrel: 595 had CAD, 329 CVD, 298 had PAD. Of these, 519 (42%) were concomitantly using PPIs. Over a mean follow-up of 15 months, 131 patients (11%) had 139 subsequent ischemic events: myocardial infarction 44, ischemic stroke 40, critical limb ischemia 55. Seventeen of them (13%) died within 15 days of the subsequent event. PPI users had a higher incidence of myocardial infarction (rate ratio: 2.5; 95% CI: 1.3-4.8), ischemic stroke (rate ratio: 1.9; 95% CI: 1.03-3.7), and a non-significantly higher rate of critical limb ischemia (rate ratio: 1.6; 95% CI: 0.95-2.8) than non-users. On multivariate analysis, concomitant use of clopidogrel and PPIs was independently associated with an increased risk for subsequent ischemic events both in the whole series of patients (hazard ratio: 1.8; 95% CI: 1.1-2.7), and in those with CVD or PAD (hazard ratio: 1.5; 95% CI: 1.01-2.4). Conclusions In patients with established arterial disease, concomitant use of PPIs and clopidogrel was associated with a nearly doubling of the incidence of subsequent myocardial infarction or ischemic stroke. This higher incidence persisted after multivariate adjustment.
