Clinical Trial Summary

This is a single-center, prospective, observational controlled cohort study designed to describe the role of WNT/B-catenin signaling and adenosine system after an acute myocardial infarction, correlating it with clinical markers of fibrosis/remodeling (primary objective). The modulation of the aforementioned molecular patterns will also be evaluated in light of the type of P2Y12 inhibitor implemented (ticagrelor or prasugrel) to identify variations in response (secondary objective).

Clinical Trial Description

A total of 100 patients will be enrolled in the study, 80 with clinical presentation of acute myocardial infarction and eligible for treatment with either prasugrel or ticagrelor, and a control cohort of 20 patients with stable coronary artery disease, matched for age, sex and major risk factors, and with no history of prior myocardial infarction. The study has been approved by the local ethics committee on 22/09/2021. Pre-enrollment screening will start from 01/11/2021. Blood samples will be obtained at 5 time-points: before and immediately after coronary revascularization (PCI) through the arterial introducer, and in the ward / clinic at a distance of 3, 5 days and 45±15 days from the procedure during normal routine examinations. These will be used to study the expression of messenger RNA encoding for beta-catenin and to dose concentrations of beta-catenin, adenosine and cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) on serum. The extraction of RNA from blood samples will be carried out with a Real-time PCR method and the determination of molecules using ELISA colorimetric method, using specific kits. Clinical-laboratory markers of left ventricular remodeling such as NT-proBNP, hsTnT, C-reactive protein, CK-MB, 12-lead ECG, transthoracic echocardiogram and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, will be evaluated during hospitalization (at 3 and 5 days) and at the control visit (at 45 ± 15 days) as per standard clinical practice. ;
