Perspective onCOMMIT/CCS-2 Trial of Metoprolol in STEMI

First impression
First impression

  • Wow !?

  • I had predicted dramatic benefit with multiple 0’s in the P value

Older b blocker trials up to 1986
Older B-blocker trials (up to 1986)

  • >27,000 patients from 28 trials

  • Meta-analysis:

    • B-blocker (3.7%)

    • Control (4.3%)

    • 16% relative risk reduction

    • 95% CI: 1-30%

    • P=0.02

  • On re-looking:

    • Lower risk patients studied

    • Wide confidence intervals on mortality benefit

Evolution of use of b blockers in ami
Evolution of use of B-Blockers in AMI

  • Benefits seen in meta-analysis of RCTs: reduced mortality, re-MI, VF, rec. ischemia

  • Initially contraindicated if CHF

  • Then, trials in outpatients with LV dysfunction, (with slow up-titration of dose over 3-6 mos)B-blockers shown to reduce mortality

  • The overlap: in AMI, CHF no longer seen as a contraindication to use of B blockers

Looking at the data in commit ccs 2
Looking at the data in COMMIT/CCS-2

  • Benefit

    • Reduction in re-MI

    • Reduction in VF

  • Risk

    • Increased development of cardiogenic shock

      • Biologically plausible – a negative inotropic agent

      • Increased risk of shock in first 24-48 hours

      • Subgroup analysis: Shock developed in Patients with Killip III, tachycardia, or hypotension

Perspective on commit

Current ACC/AHA guideline on the use of early -blocker in acute MI(ACC/AHA Task Force Report. J Am Coll Cardiol 2004;44:671-719

  • Class I: Oral -blocker therapy should be administered promptly to those patients without a contraindication, irrespective of concomitant fibrinolytic therapy or performance of primary PCI. (Level of evidence: A)

  • Class IIa: It is reasonable to administer iv -blocker promptly to STEMI patients without contraindications, especially if a tachyarrhythmia or hypertension is present. (Level of evidence: B)

Perspective on commit

Current ESC Guideline for the use of early -blocker in acute MI(ESC Task Force Report. Euro Heart J 2003;24:28-66

……the use of iv -blockade in the acute phase of infarction in many countries is extremely low. There is a good case for the greater use of an iv -blocker when there is tachycardia (in the absence of heart failure), relative hypertension, or pain unresponsive to opioids. It may be prudent to test the patient’s response to this form of therapy by first using a short-acting preparation. In most patients, however, oral -blockade will suffice.

Conclusions b blockade in acute mi
Conclusions: B-Blockade in Acute MI

  • One size does not fit all

  • Avoid IV B-blocker for patients with evidence of compromised LV Function

    • Start oral B blocker after 1-2 days, when stable with lower doses, and titrate upward

  • Low-medium risk patients benefit from early IV -> oral beta-blockade

  • For all medications: Need to balance benefit and risk, for each patient

Lessons learned from 2x2 clinical trials
Lessons Learned from 2x2 Clinical Trials

  • In 2x2 trial, if one is + and the other -, it provides a ‘negative control’ that reinforces the positive intervention

  • ISIS-4/ AMI ACE inhibitor +benefitGISSI-3 Nitrates no benefit

  • HOPE Vasc. ACE inhibitor +benefitGISSI-Prev. Dis Vit E no benefit

  • PROVE IT- ACS High-dose statin +benefit TIMI 22 Antibiotic no benefit

  • COMMIT/ AMI Clopidogrel +benefit CCS-2 Metoprotol +/-benefit

Commit ccs 2 major contribution
COMMIT/CCS-2: Major contribution

  • 10 million AMI/year worldwide, ~3 million STEMI

  • For metoprolol,

    • We learn appropriate use for ‘well-established’ class

    • New data will avoid excess risk, but allow benefit in appropriate patients

  • For clopidogrel,

    • New addition for treatment for STEMI

    • Improved patency, mortality and morbidity

    • Could prevent 20,000 – 30,000 deaths, MI’s or strokes per year worldwide
