Antithrombotic Research Group

Who we are and our mission:

We are an international multidisciplinary research group of clinician scientists. Our group focuses on approaches to personalize antithrombotic therapy. Our mission is to balance bleeding and thrombotic risk in cardiovascular patients. We perform reverse translational studies to gain information on bleeding and thrombotic risk.

Aortic valve stenosis (AVS) is the most common primary valve disease in high-income countries and AVS is associated with high mortality. Especially in eldery patients with an increased surgical risk, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) offers several advantages compared to surgical aortic valve replacement, the current standard of care. Nevertheless, there is a high risk of atherothrombotic complications such as stroke in the first months after TAVR. Guidelines recommend dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) after TAVR with optional duration between 3 to 6 months. The optimal choice of antithrombotic therapy according to individual thrombotic and bleeding risk is not known.
Aim: With this singe center prospective observational cohort study, we aim to establish a hemostatic profile for patients after TAVR. The aim is to evaluate new biomarkers by various analyzes of blood samples (i.e., thromboelastography [TEG], multiple electrode aggregometry, ClotPro®). Furthermore, CYP2C19 status, soluble hemostatic (bio)markers (i.e., P-selectin, GPVI, NET parameters DNA and H3cit, pro-inflammatory cytokines, miRNAs assessed by Real time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RTqPCR), Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) and cell-based hemostatic (bio)markers: neutrophil CD11b, platelet serotonylation, PAR-1, reticulated platelets, platelet-neutrophil aggregation, platelet monocyte aggregation, activated GPIIb/IIIa, platelet transcriptome assessed by Fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), Enzyme -linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) and Real time quantitative Polymerase chain reaction (RTqPCR) will be assessed. These markers will be used to identify patients with an increased risk for thrombotic or bleeding events to enable a personalized antithrombotic therapy.

Venous thromboembolism is one of the most common cardiovascular diseases with a high mortality. In most of the cases, a reperfusion represents the only causal therapy. Current guidelines indicate a reperfusion therapy for high-risk patients. However, for intermediate to high-risk patients there is no therapy recommendation, the decision should be made by the clinical physician. Lyse present the standard of care therapy for reperfusion which could be accompanied with bleeding complications. Since 2018 on University Heart center of Freiburg EKOSTM endovascular system (Boston, scientific), an interventional device, using ultrasound-assisted catheter-directed thrombolysis for treatment of pulmonary embolism was used. This is a local infusion therapy requiring less lytic agents which causes less bleeding side effects. Aim of this study is to evaluate EKOSTM system therapy in patients with pulmonary embolism in a retrospective single center study on University Heart Center in Freiburg.  All patients of the last 4 years with EKOS-therapy in the department of cardiology and angiology will be included in this study and technical (successful catheter installation) and clinical outcome (e.g., survival, bleeding, chronic-thromboembolic pulmonal hypertension, resilience, and re-embolism) will be evaluated.

RISTRATAVI
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become the standard of care in elderly patients at increased risk for surgical aortic valve replacement. However, the optimal antithrombotic strategy post TAVI is still unclear. Current European guidelines recommend dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) for 3 to 6 months.The prevalence of subclinical leaflet thrombosis after TAVI is 15% up to 40%, but its clinical long-term relevance is uncertain. Thromboelastography (TEG(R)) can be used as a point-of-care system evaluating a patient's individual hemostasis profile. For the detection of transcatheter valve thrombosis it may be superior to conventional platelet function testing because global hemostasis can be assessed in addition to platelet function. We intend an observational trial recruiting patients undergoing TAVI under standard care. At defined time points serially TEG(R) as well as further platelet function testing (multiple electrode aggregometry) and conventional coagulation testing were performed. The primary objective is to find surrogate TEG-derived markers/ models predicting the development of a subclinical leaflet thrombosis after TAVI under usual care. The secondary objective is to find TEG-derived markers / models identifying patients at an increased risk after TAVI (all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality, thromboembolic and bleeding events).

Clopidogrel is the most prescribed P2Y12-receptor antagonist after PCI in AF patients and has shown significant interpatient variability of on-treatment platelet reactivity. High on-clopidogrel treatment platelet reactivity is associated with an increased risk for ischemic events particularly stent thrombosis. In context of HPR-AF-PCI pilot study and HPR-TEG-AF-PCI we investigated the association of CYP2C19 genotype with antiplatelet effect of clopidogrel and ischemic and bleeding risk in patients with AF undergoing PCI.  Patients with AF after PCI were grouped according to CYP2C19*2 and *17 diplotypes: *2/non-17* or *2/*2 as reduced metabolizers (RM), non-*2/*17 or *17/*17 as increased metabolizers (IM), and the remaining as normal metabolizers (NM). Platelet aggregation was quantified by multiple electrode aggregometry (MEA) or thromboelastography (TEG). The primary outcome was assessed at 6 months and was defined as time to death, myocardial infarction, or stroke. The secondary outcome was time to non-major clinically relevant (NMCR) or major bleeding according to the ISTH classification.

These two prospective single center observational cohort studies focus on antithrombotic therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

Approximately one-third of patients with AF have coexisting coronary artery disease (CAD), in many cases requiring PCI or leading to acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) is the preferred antithrombotic strategy after PCI or ACS but is not typically adequate to protect most patients with AF from thromboembolic events caused by AF. Clopidogrel is the most prescribed P2Y12-receptor antagonist after PCI and has shown significant interpatient variability of on-treatment platelet reactivity. High on-clopidogrel treatment platelet reactivity is associated with an increased risk for ischemic events particularly stent thrombosis. Platelet function testing during P2Y12-inhibitor therapy identifies PCI-treated patients at higher risk for mortality and stent thrombosis or at an elevated risk for bleeding. The aim of these two studies were to assess the association of high on-clopidogrel platelet reactivity with ischemic events (i.e., myocardial infarction, stroke, or all cause death) in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing a percutaneous coronary intervention with stent Implantation who are treated with oral anticoagulation and Clopidogrel. Platelet function will be assessed in patients with AF (atrial fibrillation) following one or three) days after stent implantation with multiple electrode (-impendance) aggregometry (HPR-AF-PCI study) or thromboelastography (HPR-TEG-AF-PCI), respectively. Primary ischemic outcome was definded as time to composite of all-cause death, myocardial infarction, or stroke (MACE) at 6 months, assessed by telephone. Secondary outcome was defined as time to Major or clinically relevant non-major bleeding as defined by the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH)
