Mater Private Network Launch Research Portal to Improve Cardiovascular Treatments

TARAPROJECT.EU Launched to Guide Antiplatelet Therapy

Summarised evidence from over 50 clinical trials now available

An initiative by the Cardiovascular Research Institute Dublin (CVRI Dublin)


The Cardiovascular Research Institute Dublin (CVRI Dublin), a pioneering research initiative based in the Mater Private Hospital Dublin and operating in collaboration with the RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences, today announced the launch of TARAPROJECT.EU, an online resource designed to streamline and summarise evidence relating to antiplatelet therapy in cardiovascular patients.

This resource will provide clinicians with real time access to summarised data from a host of clinical trials relating to antiplatelet therapy, helping to guide the management of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention for both acute and chronic coronary syndromes.

Commenting on the launch of this new project, CVRI Dublin lead and Director of Cardiology at the Mater Private Hospital, Dublin, and Chair of Cardiovascular Research at the RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences, Professor Robert Byrne said:

“Antiplatelet therapy has proven to be an important component in the management of patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. However, it can be challenging for clinicians to keep up-to-date with latest emerging evidence from the plethora of large-scale clinical trials that are published in this field.

TARAPROJECT.EU will synthesise these clinical trials into an easily digestible summary format, providing timely scientific information that is relevant to the decisions that clinicians make on a daily basis. This will allow clinicians to weigh up the risks and benefits of the current evidence based antiplatelet therapy strategies, hopefully enabling them to achieve the best possible outcomes for their patients.

TARAPROJECT.EU includes over 50 trials defining the safest and most effective dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) strategies. These trials are further sub-categorised into one of five antiplatelet therapy research themes. A timeline is provided for each research theme, with summaries of each included trial and links to full manuscript publications.
