Congratulations for our paper being cited in the guidelines for the management of patients with a heart attack. This shows that our work is relevant for the patient and we are truly working from the bench towards the bed.

2007 Focused Update of the ACC/AHA 2004 Guidelines for the Management of Patients With ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction J. Am. Coll. Cardiol. 2008;51;210-247.

Citation: Because of the known increased risk of cardiovascular events among patients taking cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (17–19), these drugs should be discontinued immediately at the time of STEMI (see 2004 STEMI Guidelines, Section 7.12.5, for additional discussion) (3,15,20,21).
