In Reply: In response to Dr Aguirre and colleagues, we have analyzed the proportion of patients taking aspirin or other antiplatelet agents in the 2 treatment groups. As would be expected from randomization of a large number of patients, there was no imbalance: 49.85% of those in the high-dose group vs 50.15% of those in the low-dose group were taking these medications at baseline (P = .71), and this did not change during the course of the study.
