Low-Dose Aspirin plus Fixed-Dose Naproxen/Esomeprazole Found Noninferior to Low-Dose Aspirin Alone in Effects on Platelet Inhibition

The effect of a fixed-dose combination of naproxen and esomeprazole on cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) inhibition by low-dose aspirin was found to be noninferior to low-dose aspirin alone in healthy subjects, according to the results of a Phase 1 study presented at ACC.11, the American College of Cardiology’s 60th Annual Scientific Session.

Adding Aldosterone to Angiotensin Blockade Improves Coronary Endothelial Function Improves in Women

A study presented at ACC.11, the American College of Cardiology’s 60th Annual Scientific Session, revealed that administering a combination of aldosterone and angiotensin blockade for 4 months improves endothelial function compared with angiotensin blockade alone in women with signs and symptoms of ischemia and endothelial dysfunction.
