BACKGROUND: Conflicting evidences suggest that proton pump inhibitors (PPI) metabolized by
cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C19 and statins metabolyzed by CYP 3A4 may interfere with
clopidogrel biotransformation to its active metabolite. Previous pharmacodynamic studies have
demonstrated that omeprazole but not pantoprazole lessens the antiplatelet activity of
clopidogrel. It has been suggested that atorvastatin may interfere with clopidogrel effect, but the
impact of rosuvastatin, a CYP 2C9 metabolyzed statin, has not been investigated fully.
METHODS: SPICE was a prospective randomized open-label with blinded endpoints (PROBE
design) trial. The primary objective was to compare the impact of 4 different anti-acid therapies on
the antiplatelet effect of clopidogrel. The secondary objective was to determine which factors
modulate this drug-drug interaction, including the choice of statin and the presence of 2C19*2
polymorphism. After PCI with stent implantation, 320 treated with clopidogrel 75mg id were
recruited and randomized 1:1 to either rosuvastatin 20mg id or atorvastatin 80mg id. Thirty days
following PCI, patients underwent platelet function testing. Maximal platelet aggregation (MPA),
evaluated with light transmission aggregometry (LTA) after stimulation with 5 µmol/l ADP. Platelet
reactivity index (PRI) was evaluated with vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP)
phosphorylation (secondary endpoint). At 30 days, patients were randomized again to one of 4
anti-acid treatment groups (omeprazole 20mg id, pantoprazole 40mg id, esomeprazole 40mg id,
and ranitidine 300mg id), stratified by statin group and 2C19*2 carrier state. After 30 days of
constant therapy, platelet function tests were repeated. Non-responders were defined by MPA
>46% (ADP 5 µmol/l).
RESULTS: As of August 30th, 303 patients have been recruited. Median age was 61 years.
Reason for PCI was ACS for 73% of patients. Thirty-day and 60-day platelet function tests were
available for 256 and 227 patients, respectively. After 30 days of anti-acid therapy, MPA
increased from 39.2% to 39.7% (p=0.7) in the ranitidine group and from 36.2% to 41.1%
(p<0.00001) in the PPI groups combined. Similarly, PRI increased from 44.5% to 46.4% (p=0.2)
in ranitidine-treated patients and from 42.5% to 49.2% p<0.00001) in PPI-treated patients.
CONCLUSIONS: In patients receiving clopidogrel after PCI, concomitant anti-acid therapy with
proton-pump inhibitors decreased the antiplatelet effect of clopidogrel while the H2 receptor
blocker ranitidine had not impact on platelet reactivity. The differential effect of each PPI and the
role of the choice of statin and 2C19*2 polymorphism on this drug-drug interaction will be
presented at the meeting.
