Edoxaban (Lixiana, Savaysa) is an oral, direct factor Xa inhibitor which has recently been approved for use in the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) [collectively, venous thromboembolism (VTE)] and for the prevention of recurrent VTE. This article reviews the pharmacological properties of edoxaban as well as its tolerability and therapeutic efficacy in the treatment and prevention of recurrent VTE events. As demonstrated in the pivotal Hokusai-VTE phase III trial, once-daily edoxaban after initial treatment with heparin was non-inferior to standard therapy with heparin/warfarin in preventing recurrent VTE events and was associated with a significantly lower risk of clinically relevant bleeding than the traditional therapy...

There has been a revolution in the development of effective, small-molecule anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents. Numerous trypsin-like serine proteases have been under active pursuit as therapeutic targets. Important examples include thrombin, factor VIIa, factor Xa, and β-tryptase with indications ranging from thrombosis and inflammation to asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Trypsin-like serine proteases exhibit a highly similar tertiary folding pattern, especially for the region near the substrate binding pocket that includes the conserved catalytic triad consisting of histidine 57, aspartic acid 102, and serine 195...

In recent years, several direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOAC) have become available for use in Europe and other regions in indications related to prophylaxis and treatment of venous and arterial thromboembolism. They include the oral direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran etexilate (Pradaxa, Boehringer Ingelheim) and the oral direct FXa inhibitors rivaroxaban (Xarelto, Bayer HealthCare), apixaban (Eliquis, Bristol-Myers Squibb), and edoxaban (Lixiana/Savaysa, Daiichi-Sankyo). The new compounds have a predictable dose response and few drug-drug interactions (unlike vitamin k antagonists), and they do not require parenteral administration (unlike heparins)...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the current literature and potential clinical role of edoxaban (Savaysa) for stroke prevention in nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) and treatment of deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. DATA SOURCES: A PubMed and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled trials search was conducted in February 2015 using the search terms edoxaban (ordu-176b) and atrial fibrillation, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or venous thromboembolism...
