AIMS - Clopidogrel is prescribed for the prevention of atherothrombotic events. While investigations have identified genetic determinants of inter-individual variability in on-treatment platelet inhibition (e.g. CYP2C19*2), evidence that these variants have clinical utility to predict major adverse cardiovascular events remains controversial.

METHODS AND RESULTS - We assessed the impact of 31 candidate gene polymorphisms on ADP-stimulated platelet reactivity in 3,391 clopidogrel-treated coronary artery disease patients of the International Clopidogrel Pharmacogenomics Consortium (ICPC). The influence of these polymorphisms on cardiovascular events (CVE) was tested in 2,134 ICPC patients (N = 129 events) in whom clinical event data were available. Several variants were associated with on-treatment ADP-stimulated platelet reactivity (CYP2C19*2, P = 8.8x10-54; CES1 G143E, P = 1.3x10-16; CYP2C19*17, P = 9.5x10-10; CYP2B6 1294 + 53C>T, P = 3.0x10-4; CYP2B6 516G>T, P = 1.0x10-3; CYP2C9*2, P = 1.2x10-3; and CYP2C9*3, P = 1.5x10-3). While no individual variant was associated with CVEs, generation of a pharmacogenomic polygenic response score (PgxRS) revealed that patients who carried a greater number of alleles that associated with increased on-treatment platelet reactivity were more likely to experience CVEs (β = 0.17, SE 0.06, P = 0.01) and cardiovascular-related death (β = 0.43, SE 0.16, P = 0.007). Patients who carried 8 or more risk alleles were significantly more likely to experience CVEs (OR = 1.78, 95%CI 1.14-2.76, P = 0.01) and cardiovascular death (OR = 4.39, 95%CI 1.35-14.27, P = 0.01) compared to patients who carried 6 or fewer of these alleles.

CONCLUSION - Several polymorphisms impact clopidogrel response and PgxRS is a predictor of cardiovascular outcomes. Additional investigations that identify novel determinants of clopidogrel response and validating polygenic models may facilitate future precision medicine strategies.
