Selected Research

A Study of SCH 530348 in Addition to Standard Care in Patients with Atherosclerotic Disease: Thrombin Receptor Antagonist in Secondary Prevention of Atherothrombotic Ischemic Events (TRA 2ºP - TIMI 50)

Dr, Schamp was a principal investigator on this study, sponsored by Schering Plough. This study was designed to determine whether the addition of SCH 530348 to standard care would help prevent heart attacks and stroke in patients with a history of atherosclerosis. This study also assessed risk of bleeding with this drug.

Apixaban for the Prevention of Stroke in Subjects with Atrial Fibrillation (ARISTOTLE)

Dr. Schamp was a sub-investigator on this study, sponsored by Bristol-Myers Squibb. In this Phase 3 trial of patients with atrial fibrillation, apixaban was found to be superior to warfarin in preventing stroke.
