The article focuses on a study on how fondaparinux and enoxaparin compare for bleeding in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes (ACSs). The result of the study concluded that in patients with non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndromes, fondaparinux reduced fatal, nonfatal major, and minor bleeding at 9 days and nonfatal major and minor bleeding at 180 days, compared with enoxaparin.

    Background: The combined use of anticoagulants, antiplatelet agents, and invasive coronary procedures reduces ischemic coronary events but also increases bleeding in patients with acute coronary syndromes. We therefore assessed whether fondaparinux would preserve the anti-ischemic benefits of...

    Aim: Age and injury cause structural and functional changes in coronary artery smooth muscle cells (caSMCs) that influence the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease. Although paracrine signalling is widely believed to drive phenotypic changes in caSMCs, here we show that developmental origin...
