Ravulizumab was noninferior to eculizumab in both previously treated and treatment-naive patients. Apixaban or placebo was given within 24 hours of starting chemotherapy and continued for 6 months. Gradishar, MD Paixaban of the latest research.
Apixaban versus warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation.
Expert Opin Investig Drugs. The rate of major bleeding was 2.
Once bound, the factor Xa inhibitors are unable to bind to and inhibit native factor Xa, thus potentially neejm for the restoration of normal hemostatic processes. Andexanet alfa is approved for use in patients treated with rivaroxaban or apixaban when reversal of anticoagulation is needed due to life-threatening or uncontrolled bleeding.
How Effective Are Guidelines? Blood Dec 3 Ravulizumab was noninferior to eculizumab in both previously treated and treatment-naive patients.
Apixaban versus warfarin in patients with atrial fibrillation.
Andexanet alfa is a modified human factor Xa molecule that acts as a decoy to target and sequester both oral and injectable factor Xa inhibitors in the blood. N Engl J Med Dec 4.
Whether direct oral anticoagulants DOACs would be safe and effective for this indication is unclear. DOACs appear to be as effective as LMWH and are more acceptable to patients, but they pose similar risks for bleeding and should be used cautiously in those with gastrointestinal malignancies, renal impairment, or thrombocytopenia. N Engl J Med Dec 4 Venous thromboembolism occurred less frequently with the direct oral anticoagulant apixaban than with placebo.
Comment Patients with active malignancies are at risk for VTE but do not always receive prophylactic anticoagulants because of concerns about bleeding, need for injections, and cost. The post-marketing requirement is a trial in which patients will be randomized to receive either andexanet alfa or usual care. The trial was designed to test for noninferiority, with key secondary objectives of testing for superiority with respect to the primary outcome and to the rates of major bleeding and death from any cause.

N Engl J Med Dec apixagan N Engl J Med Dec 13 At 23 years of follow-up, life expectancy was nearly 3 years longer with prostatectomy than with watchful waiting. These trials were designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of andexanet alfa in reversing the anticoagulant activity of rivaroxaban and apixaban in healthy volunteers. Lancet Oncol Nov 1. A broader commercial launch of andexanet alfa is anticipated in earlydependent upon FDA approval of the generation 2 manufacturing process.
National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines for multigene panel testing miss apixzban half of patients with actionable variants.
FDA approves antidote for factor Xa inhibitors
With its first BLA submission, Portola was seeking approval for andexanet alfa as a reversal agent for patients anticoagulated with an oral or injectable factor Xa inhibitor—apixaban, rivaroxaban, edoxaban, or enoxaparin—who experience serious uncontrolled or life-threatening aoixaban or who require urgent or emergency surgery.
The rate of the primary outcome was 1. To address this issue, investigators conducted an industry-funded, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial of the direct factor Xa inhibitor apixaban 2.

Vitamin K antagonists are highly effective in preventing stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation but have several limitations. In patients with atrial fibrillation, apixaban was superior to warfarin in preventing stroke or systemic embolism, caused less bleeding, and resulted in lower mortality. Gradishar, MD A perspective on the most important research in the field from the past year. The primary outcome was ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke or systemic embolism.

N Engl J Med Dec 1 Forty percent of patients with relapsed or refractory disease achieved complete remission. Older patients with previously untreated disease had better outcomes with ibrutinib than with chemo-immunotherapy. Patients with active malignancies are at risk for VTE but do not always receive prophylactic anticoagulants because of concerns about bleeding, need for injections, and cost.

J Clin Oncol Dec 7 National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines for multigene panel testing miss nearly half of patients with actionable variants. Continued FDA approval of andexanet alfa may be nwjm upon post-marketing study results to demonstrate an improvement in hemostasis in patients taking rivaroxaban or apixaban who require reversal of anticoagulation. Apixaban is a novel oral direct factor Xa inhibitor that has been shown to reduce the risk of stroke in a similar population in comparison with aspirin.
