Relative risk reduction in periprocedural thrombotic events and proven safety

In CHAMPION PHOENIX, KENGREAL provided significant risk reduction vs clopidogrel in the composite outcome of MACE (death, MI, IDR, and ST) at 48 hours, and the individual outcome of ST.1,5 Patients receiving KENGREAL had no statistically significant increase in GUSTO-defined severe bleeding or need for transfusion.5 Bleeding events of all severities were more common with KENGREAL than with clopidogrel.1

Important Safety Information

KENGREAL® (cangrelor) for Injection is contraindicated in patients with significant active bleeding.

KENGREAL® is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity (e.g., anaphylaxis) to cangrelor or any component of the product.

Drugs that inhibit platelet P2Y12 function, including KENGREAL®, increase the risk of bleeding. In CHAMPION PHOENIX, bleeding events of all severities were more common with KENGREAL® than with clopidogrel. Bleeding complications with KENGREAL® were consistent across a variety of clinically important subgroups. Once KENGREAL® is discontinued, there is no antiplatelet effect after an hour.

The most common adverse reaction is bleeding.


KENGREAL® (cangrelor) for Injection is a P2Y12 platelet inhibitor indicated as an adjunct to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to reduce the risk of periprocedural myocardial infarction (MI), repeat coronary revascularization, and stent thrombosis (ST) in patients who have not been treated with a P2Y12 platelet inhibitor and are not being given a glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor.
