Calling on prior experience with patients affected by non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndromes, as well as from patients undergoing coronary stenting, clopidogrel, given as soon as possible at a loading dose of 300 or preferably 600 mg is recommended for patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing mechanical treatment[1,2]. One single small study has so far evaluated the pharmacokinetic effect of 600 mg loading dose of clopidogrel in 11 STEMI patients. The effect of clopidogrel was negligible at 4 hours and it persisted to be suboptimal when compared with that achieved in healthy controls at 6 hours after administration[3]. © 2012 International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis.
