ABSTRACT
The article highlights a placebo-controlled trial by Bhatt and colleagues to determine a clinical interaction between Omeprazole that reduces the risk of Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding in patients on dual anti-platelet therapy (DAPT) and Clopidogrel. It is inferred that there was no apparent Cardiovascular (CV) interaction between clopidogrel and omeprazole. According to the author the study shows up a lack of evidence of a clinical outcome and fails to prove the any interaction.
