INGELHEIM, GERMANY--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire) August 21, 2017 -- Boehringer Ingelheim today announced that it will present important new data on the treatment of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) at the ESC Congress in Barcelona, Spain, 26-30 August 2017. In total, four abstracts have been accepted, investigating different aspects of AF patient treatment. The results of the RE-DUAL PCI™ trial have been selected for one of the Late Breaking Science sessions of the congress.

The RE-DUAL PCI™ trial compared dual therapy with triple therapy after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent placement in approximately 2,500 adults with atrial fibrillation. Patients were either treated with dabigatran etexilate (Pradaxa®) and a single antiplatelet agent or with the vitamin K antagonist (VKA) warfarin and two antiplatelets. The dabigatran doses investigated in this trial are the same doses which have already demonstrated effective stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation and are therefore approved around the world in this indication.[1]

“The presentation of the results of our RE-DUAL PCI™ trial at ESC is particularly timely as the focus of the 2017 congress is ‘40 years of PCI’”, commented Professor Jörg Kreuzer, Vice President Medicine, Therapeutic Area Cardiovascular, Boehringer Ingelheim. “We are honoured that the results will be included in the congress Spotlight Session and hope that the findings from the trial will provide a valuable contribution to patient management in the PCI setting.”
