PURPOSE: Published evidence regarding the effects of oral factor Xa inhibitors on anticoagulation monitoring tests is reviewed with a focus on monitoring concerns that can arise during transitions to i.v. heparin therapy. SUMMARY: Assays that measure inhibition of factor Xa activity (i.e., anti-Xa assays) are widely used in U.S. institutions to monitor i.v. heparin therapy and, in some cases, for monitoring other types of anticoagulation therapy. Clinicians have raised concerns that the use of anti-Xa assays to monitor heparin levels in hospitalized patients who must be transitioned from oral factor Xa inhibitor therapy to i...

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a common and potentially severe manifestation of venous thromboembolism. Its management has relied on anticoagulation by vitamin K antagonists (VKA) for the past fifty years. Recently, new alternative drugs have been developed and dramatically modified both the treatment of acute PE and its secondary prevention. Areas covered: This review discusses the contemporary pharmacological treatment for PE, with a focus on anticoagulation options for non-high risk PE. In particular, the advent of direct oral anticoagulants (rivaroxaban, apixaban, edoxaban and dabigatran) and modalities for long-term prevention will be described...

BACKGROUND: Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs, dabigatran, rivaroxaban, apixaban, and edoxaban) have been increasingly used as alternatives to warfarin for stroke prophylaxis in patients with atrial fibrillation. Yet there is substantial lack of information on how patients on NOACs are currently treated when they have an acute ischemic stroke and the best strategies for treating intracerebral hemorrhage for those on chronic anticoagulation with warfarin or a NOAC. These are critical unmet needs for real world clinical decision making in these emergent patients...

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have at least noninferior efficacy compared with other oral anticoagulants and have ancillary benefits, including overall better safety profiles, lack of the need for routine monitoring, rapid onset of action, and ease of administration. Reversal of these agents may be indicated in certain situations such as severe bleeding and for perioperative management. DOAC-associated bleeding should be risk stratified: patients with moderate or severe bleeding should have the DOAC discontinued and reversal strategies should be considered...

Non vitamin-K oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are direct and specific inhibitors of the coagulation factors IIa (dabigatran) and Xa (apixaban, rivaroxaban, edoxaban) which share many pharmacokinetic properties. However, indications are lacking regarding the use of NOACs during thrombolysis, surgery and bleeding events. Areas covered: In this paper, the authors retrospectively analyzed the relevant literature on the NOACs using the PubMed and Google Scholar databases. Expert Commentary: Although warfarin is effective in cardioembolic stroke prevention, easier handling and more favorable risk-benefit profile often render NOACs a more preferable therapy choice for neurologists...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia and increases risk of stroke by nearly 5-fold. While warfarin has been employed successfully to reduce the risk of stroke in these patients, there are a number of challenges with therapy. These include the need for therapeutic monitoring due to variability in patient response, frequent dose adjustments, numerous drug-drug, drug-food, and drug-disease interactions, and a heightened risk of thrombosis and bleeding due to these issues. Current guidelines recommend that the vitamin K antagonists (VKA) or direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) should be used for thromboprophylaxis in patients with nonvalvular AF at risk for stroke or systemic embolic events...

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), previously also known as novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs), have increased the therapeutic options for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF). Previous studies comparing their relative efficacy and safety do not address age-related differences, such as comorbidities and physical and social boundaries. This review aimed to summarize and compare the clinical and safety outcomes of DOACs and warfarin for stroke prevention in AF in the elderly population (≥ 65 years)...

Edoxaban and its low-abundance, active metabolite M4 are substrates of P-glycoprotein (P-gp; MDR1) and organic anion transporter protein 1B1 (OATP1B1), respectively, and pharmacological inhibitors of P-gp and OATP1B1 can affect edoxaban and M4 pharmacokinetics (PK). In this integrated pharmacogenomic analysis, genotype and concentration-time data from 458 healthy volunteers in 14 completed phase 1 studies were pooled to examine the impact on edoxaban PK parameters of allelic variants of ABCB1 (rs1045642: C3435T) and SLCO1B1 (rs4149056: T521C), which encode for P-gp and OATP1B1...

Vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) have been the mainstay of anticoagulation therapy for more than 50 years. VKAs are mainly used for the prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and the treatment and secondary prevention of venous thromboembolism. In the past 5 years, four new agents-the direct factor Xa inhibitors apixaban, edoxaban and rivaroxaban and the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran [collectively known as direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) or non-VKA oral anticoagulants]-have been approved for these and other indications...

PURPOSE: The available clinical data on target-specific oral anticoagulant (TSOAC) reversal agents that are currently in development or have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are reviewed. SUMMARY: The development of TSOACs such as dabigatran, rivaroxaban, edoxaban, and apixaban has presented benefits and new challenges. One of the main challenges associated with the use of TSOACs is the lack of suitable agent-specific reversal agents. Several treatment options for the management of life-threatening bleeding events associated with TSOAC use, such as fresh frozen plasma, prothrombin complex concentrates, and recombinant coagulation factor VIIa, have been used, with inconsistent results...

AIMS: In the coming decades, the number of Europeans with atrial fibrillation (AF) is set to rise as the population ages, and so with it will the number of strokes. The risk of thromboembolism (principally stroke and systemic embolism) and death can be reduced by the use of the vitamin K antagonists (VKA, e.g. warfarin) and more so by non-VKA oral anticoagulants (NOACs) such as edoxaban. METHODS AND RESULTS: We modelled the effect of the increasing use of edoxaban in preference to warfarin in a European AF population from both clinical and economic perspectives...

Introduction. The main adverse effect of anticoagulant therapy is bleeding, and major bleeding, including intracranial, gastrointestinal, and retroperitoneal bleeding, has been reported as an adverse effect of edoxaban, a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC). Bleeding during systemic anticoagulation with edoxaban presents a therapeutic conundrum, because there is currently no safe or efficacious reversal agent to stop major bleeding. Case Report. A 51-year-old woman had multiple traumatic injuries, including lower limb fractures...

BACKGROUND: For nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF), novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have been found noninferior to warfarin for stroke/systemic embolization prevention, and major bleeding events. Recent meta-analysis of NOACs versus warfarin in atrial fibrillation (AF) showed that women on warfarin have greater risk of stroke/embolism than men, and when both are treated with NOACs, differences disappear. METHODS: NOACs differ in pharmacologic properties, thus they may differ from one another in their effects on women with AF...

Of the new direct oral anticoagulants, direct factor Xa inhibitors are limited by the absence of a proven reversal agent. We assessed the safety, tolerability and impact on anticoagulation reversal of ciraparantag (PER977) alone and following a 60 mg dose of the FXa inhibitor edoxaban. Escalating, single IV doses of ciraparantag were administered alone and following a 60 mg oral dose of edoxaban in a double-blind, placebo-controlled fashion to healthy subjects. Serial assessments of the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic effects of ciraparantag were performed...

A 57-year-old man with antithrombin III deficiency with deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary thromboembolism after surgery for colon cancer was managed with warfarin and inferior vena cava filtration. After starting chemotherapy for liver metastasis, the control of his prothrombin time-international normalized ratio in response to warfarin began to fluctuate. Warfarin was changed to edoxaban (an oral direct Factor Xa inhibitor), and he had no recurrence of venous thromboembolism or bleeding for approximately 1 year...

Nonvitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants, previously referred to as novel oral anticoagulants, have emerged in recent years as attractive treatment options for acute pulmonary embolism (PE). However, despite the widespread anticipation by physicians and the approval of rivaroxaban, apixaban, dabigatran, and more recently edoxaban, there is still some reluctance to choose these newer agents over conventional treatment with heparin/vitamin K antagonists. Acute PE puts a considerable strain on emergency departments, and medical staff rely on efficient diagnosis and risk assessment to manage the condition appropriately and economically...

Thromboembolism contributes to morbidity and mortality in patients with heart failure (HF), and atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the main factors promoting this complication. As they share many risk factors, HF and AF frequently coexist, and patients with both conditions are at a particularly high risk of thromboembolism. Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are direct antagonists of thrombin (dabigatran) and factor Xa (rivaroxaban, apixaban and edoxaban), and were designed to overcome the limitations of vitamin K antagonists...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is an independent risk factor for stroke. It is most prevalent in the elderly and frequently coexists with heart failure (HF). The joint occurrence of AF and HF further worsens prognosis. The prevention of thromboembolism is crucial in the management of AF. In recent years, new oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have been licensed for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with AF. Areas covered: This article reviews the key published studies on the pharmacology, clinical efficacy and safety of edoxaban, the latest NOAC to receive approval for the AF indication...

With the rising prevalence of nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) in the general population, the development of new drugs for prevention of thromboembolic events is essential. Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have been shown to present a number of advantages over conventionally used agents, such as predictable pharmacokinetics and no requirement for continuous anticoagulant monitoring. The most recently approved NOAC for the NVAF indication is edoxaban. Several subgroup analyses from the edoxaban phase III ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 trial have now been published, alongside meta-analysis data comparing the four currently approved NOACs...
