Abstract BACKGROUND- Aspirin or dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin and clopidogrel is a standard therapy for patients who are at increased risk for cardiovascular events. However, the genetic determinants of variable response to aspirin (alone and in combination with clopidogrel) are not known. METHODS AND RESULTS- We measured ex vivo platelet aggregation before and after dual antiplatelet therapy in individuals (n=565) from the Pharmacogenomics of Anti-Platelet Intervention (PAPI) Study and conducted a genome-wide association study of drug response. Significant findings were extended by examining genotype and cardiovascular outcomes in 2 independent aspirin-treated cohorts: 227 percutaneous coronary intervention patients and 1000 patients of the International Verapamil SR/Trandolapril Study (INVEST) Genetic Substudy (INVEST-GENES). Results from the genome-wide association study revealed a strong association between single-nucleotide polymorphisms on chromosome 1q23 and post-dual antiplatelet therapyplatelet aggregation. Further genotyping revealed rs12041331 in the platelet endothelial aggregation receptor-1 (PEAR1) gene to be most strongly associated with dual antiplatelet therapy response (P=7.66×10(-9)). In white and black patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, A-allele carriers of rs12041331 were more likely to experience a cardiovascular event or death compared with GG homozygotes (hazard ratio, 2.62; 95\% confidence interval, 0.96-7.10; P=0.059; and hazard ratio, 3.97; 95\% confidence interval, 1.10-14.31; P=0.035, respectively). In aspirin-treated INVEST-GENES patients, rs12041331 A-allele carriers had significantly increased risk of myocardial infarction compared with GG homozygotes (odds ratio, 2.03; 95\% confidence interval, 1.01-4.09; P=0.048). CONCLUSION- Common genetic variation in PEAR1 may be a determinant of platelet response and cardiovascular events in patients on aspirin alone or in combination with clopidogrel.
