Trial Purpose

The overall setting for this population was England – a Clinical Practice Research Datalink - Hospital Episode Statistics (CPRD-HES) linked population was used. CPRD Aurum contains routine-collected data from practices using Egton Medical Information Systems (EMIS) Web® electronic patient record system software and is available for all of the United Kingdom (UK) (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales). HES collects data from hospitals from England only (fully national). As such, the linkage was restricted to practices from England only.

The study enrollment period was from 1st January 2010 onwards, but CPRD has data dating back to 1st January 1995, used to access covariates of interest. The latest available data in HES were used in this study, corresponding to 31st October 2020.

Index date was considered the date of the first prescription of first SOC antiplatelet monotherapy in the study period (Aspirin for CAD and IS, and Clopidogrel for PAD).
