ABSTRACT Objective: In this study, it was aimed to investigate the effect of streptokinase therapy in ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and conventional therapy in non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) patients on the thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) risk index (TRI), B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP), and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP)levels.
ExTRACT-TIMI 25 (Enoxaparin and Thrombolysis Reperfusion for Acute Myocardial Infarction Treatment, Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction -- Study 25) trial showed that in patients with STEMI treated with fibrinolysis, at one year, the primary endpoint of death or nonfatal myocardial infarction remained significantly in favor or enoxaparin vs UFH (15.

The FDA approval is based on the results of the landmark ExTRACT-TIMI 25 trial (Enoxaparin and Thrombolysis Reperfusion for Acute Myocardial InfarCtion Treatment, Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction - 25 Study), which included more than 20,000 acute STEMI patients and the results of which were published in the April 6, 2006 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.

In accordance with convention, patency in the infarct-related artery is graded by angiography according to the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) criteria, in which TIMI 0 is no perfusion past the occlusion; TIMI 1 is penetration past the occlusion without perfusion; TIMI 2 is partial perfusion past the occlusion; and TIMI 3 is complete perfusion (63).
