APIXABAN NEJM PDF

Three weeks or more of enoxaparin after surgical knee or hip replacement is standard care , since it reduces the high risk of serious venous thromboembolism with a relatively low risk of serious bleeding events. BMS-Pfizer are not the first Pharmas to stumble on this particular path. Most of the events enoxaparin prevented were symptomatic proximal DVTs which would likely have been detected and treated anyway. Enoxaparin did prevent 1 or 2 fatal pulmonary emboli at 90 days, among almost 6, patients in the trial. However, there were also 4 intracranial bleeds and one fatal hemorrhage in the enoxaparin-treated group. Rivaroxaban for 30 days post discharge was no more effective than enoxaparin for 10 days at clot prevention, but rivaroxaban did cause excess bleeding.

Apixaban already has FDA indications for thromboprophylaxis after joint replacement, and for stroke prevention in people with atrial fibrillation.

However, major bleeding occurred in 0. Clinical Takeaway: Heparin prophylaxis during the hospital stay remains the standard of care for most acutely ill medical patients. The American College of Physicians recently warned that patients at low risk for VTE or high risk for bleeding may even be harmed by low-dose heparin, and physicians should therefore prescribe mechanical or thromboprophylaxis on an individual basis.

Apixaban for Venous Thromboembolism in Cancer

Background: Patients with active cancer have an increased risk of venous thromboembolism, which results in substantial morbidity, mortality, and health care expenditures. The Khorana score range, 0 to 6, with higher scores indicating a higher risk of venous thromboembolism has been validated to identify patients with cancer at elevated risk for this complication and may help select those who could benefit from thromboprophylaxis. Methods: We conducted a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial assessing the efficacy and safety of apixaban 2. The primary efficacy outcome was objectively documented venous thromboembolism over a follow-up period of days. The main safety outcome was a major bleeding episode. Results: Of the patients who underwent randomization, were included in the modified intention-to-treat analysis.

ASH 2018: Apixaban for the Treatment of Cancer-Associated VTE

Allan S. Lancet Haematol Jan. In patients with venous thromboembolism, apixaban was more effective and was associated with less major bleeding. In this study, researchers used a large U. About apixaban users were compared with about 12, propensity-score-matched rivaroxaban users. During average follow-up of about 3 months, recurrent VTE occurred significantly less often in apixaban users than in rivaroxaban users 3 vs. Major bleeding also occurred significantly less often with apixaban 3 vs.

Apixaban to Prevent Venous Thromboembolism in Patients With Cancer

Agnelli et al. A: Major guidelines recommend the use of low-molecular-weight heparin for the treatment of cancer-associated venous thromboembolism and have recently added the use of edoxaban or rivaroxaban. A: The trial included patients with predominantly advanced active cancer and acute symptomatic venous thromboembolism. Patients with a large variety of cancer types, including approximately one third that occurred at gastrointestinal sites, were included in the trial, which was consistent with the cancer distribution in the general population. Cancers associated with high thromboembolic risk, such as lung and colorectal cancers, were well represented. No anticancer therapy was excluded, which led to the inclusion of patients receiving a broad array of cytotoxic and biologic therapies.
