High residual platelet reactivity (HRPR) is still an important challenge, despite the advent of new potent ADP-antagonists. Therefore it is of extreme importance to identify factors that can influence platelet activation. Serum uric acid (SUA) has been largely addressed in the past as a possible risk factor for coronary artery disease, with a possible association with platelets hyperreactivity. So far no studies have assessed the role of serum uric acid on the response to dual antiplatelet therapy.

Abstract

High residual platelet reactivity (HRPR) is still an important challenge, despite the advent of new potent ADP-antagonists. Therefore it is of extreme importance to identify factors that can influence platelet activation. Serum uric acid (SUA) has been largely addressed in the past as a possible risk factor for coronary artery disease, with a possible association with platelets hyperreactivity. So far no studies have assessed the role of serum uric acid on the response to dual antiplatelet therapy. Therefore, the aim of our study was to evaluate the impact of uric acid levels on platelet function in patients treated with dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with clopidogrel or ticagrelor.
