Thienopyridine derivatives such as clopidogrel have been shown to reduce the incidence of death in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention when used in conjunction with aspirin. Recently, a new thienopyridine, prasugrel, significantly reduced the primary endpoint of cardiovascular death, non-fatal myocardial infarction or non-fatal stroke to 9.9% compared to 12.1% for clopidogrel. Prasugrel has been shown to be more efficacious than clopidigrel in reducing ischemic events and stent thrombosis, but does cause more life-threatening bleeding in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention.
