The main method of this project is the CoroPrevention Trial that allows us to prospectively evaluate the personalized prevention program in coronary heart disease (CHD) in a randomized fashion.
The actual trial can be separated into three subsequent blocks; risk stratification and randomization, actual prospective trial as well as data evaluation and dissemination.
CoroPrevention trial flow chart (in the picture) shows origin of CHD patients, design of the trial and evaluation and dissemination activities.
Clinical center selection and organization
Clinical centers were selected based on a survey on secondary prevention programs conducted by ESC. Furthermore, a wide European dimension was ensured. Therefore, the following countries were selected: Finland, Poland, Greece, Italy, Germany and Portugal.
12 000 screened patients in two years
For each selected country, we have set a target to screen 2000 CHD patients with the CoroPredict test during the two years dedicated for patient recruitment and randomize 170 high-risk patients in the three-year intervention comparing personalized care to standard care.
High risk patients will be identified based on biomarker screening
We expect that 15-20% of all consented patients will fulfill the high risk criteria of the CoroPredict biomarker score. Therefore 1000 patients will be randomized both in the usual care and personalized prevention program arm of the trial.
