Abstract [en]

This study aimed to establish the utility of a whole-blood single-platelet counting (WBSPC) assay, a measure of microaggregation, in monitoring the effects of tirofiban, comparing this with optical aggregometry (OA) and the Ultegra TRAP cartridge system (UTC), measures of macroaggregation. Fifty-nine patients with acute coronary syndrome scheduled for coronary angiography +/- angioplasty were studied. WBSPC assay (ADP 0.3-100 microM, Sysmex KX21 analyzer), OA (ADP 20 microM) and UTC were performed: before starting tirofiban; 30 min, 4 and 24 h after starting tirofiban; and 1 and 2 h after stopping tirofiban. Thirty minutes after starting tirofiban, there was substantial inhibition of platelet aggregation (40 +/- 30%; WBSPC, 2 minutes after addition of ADP 30 microM) and this remained stable at 4 and 24 h. OA (86 +/- 17%; inhibition of maximal aggregation, ADP 20 microM) and UTC (93 +/- 7%) showed marked inhibition with less inter-individual variation. There was no significant correlation between OA and UTC results (R(2) = 0.006), but fair correlation between OA and WBSPC results (R(2) = 0.37). Greater inhibition of macroaggregation (OA and UTC) was seen compared to microaggregation (WBSPC) such that WBSPC was more discriminating in the therapeutic range when macroaggregation was often completely inhibited. A WBSPC assay of platelet microaggregation shows promise for monitoring GPIIb/IIIa antagonists.
