Washington DC, March 10, 2009 - AACC is pleased to present an audioconference on The Lab’s Role in Optimizing Antiplatelet Therapy: A Personalized Medicine Approach on April 2, 2009. The audioconference starts at 2:00pm Eastern (U.S.) time and will last 90 minutes.
Platelet assessment in patients receiving antiplatelet therapy can occur in the pre-surgical setting with patients who may have a high risk of excessive perioperative bleeding, and also in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass surgery who are given anticoagulants to keep them from clotting.
Increasingly, this testing is moving into the realm of personalized medicine as newer tests promise to measure individual response to a variety of antiplatelet agents. Register for this audioconference and find out from leading surgical and laboratory experts why IVD assays are the new paradigm in platelet function testing. We’ll discuss clinical and lab issues surrounding platelet assessment in a number of situations.
Members of the press are invited to take advantage of a complimentary registration for this event. The program will have relevance to reporters who are interested in:
- Personalized medicine;
- Warfarin and aspirin therapy;
- Aspirin sensitivity;
- Coagulation testing; or
- Testing associated with cardiac surgery
