This study is scheduled to start inwith results expected to be available in These trials were designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of andexanet alfa in reversing the anticoagulant activity of rivaroxaban and apixaban in neim volunteers.
N Engl J Med Dec 1 Forty percent of patients with relapsed or refractory disease achieved complete remission. Genetic Testing for Breast Cancer: N Engl J Med Dec 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.
To address this issue, investigators conducted an industry-funded, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial of the direct factor Xa inhibitor apixaban 2. Lancet Oncol Nov 1. The rate of the primary outcome was 1.

Apixaban to prevent venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer.
In Augustthe FDA issued a complete response letter explaining why the agency could not approve andexanet alfa for this indication. A broader commercial launch of andexanet alfa is anticipated in earlydependent upon FDA approval of the generation 2 manufacturing process.
The primary outcome was ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke or systemic embolism. Apixaban or placebo was given within 24 hours of starting chemotherapy and continued for 6 months. J Clin Oncol Dec 7. No between-group differences apidaban seen in the rates of adverse events and apixahan.
The post-marketing requirement is a trial in which patients will be randomized to receive either andexanet alfa or usual care. Blood Apixwban 3, Kulasekararaj AG et al. Whether direct oral anticoagulants DOACs would be safe and effective for this indication is unclear.

Comment Patients with active malignancies are at risk enjm VTE but do not always receive prophylactic anticoagulants because of concerns about bleeding, need for injections, and cost.

Results from both studies were published in NEJM in VTE was less frequent in patients assigned to apixaban versus placebo 4.
FDA approves antidote for factor Xa inhibitors
N Engl J Med Dec 1 Older patients with previously untreated disease had better outcomes with ibrutinib than with chemo-immunotherapy. This drug will be produced using the generation 1 manufacturing process. The rate of major bleeding was 2. Blood Dec 3 Ravulizumab was noninferior to eculizumab in both previously treated and treatment-naive patients.
Blood Dec 3. Portola Pharmaceuticals first submitted the biologics license application BLA for andexanet alfa in December Ravulizumab was noninferior to eculizumab in both previously treated nemm treatment-naive patients.
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. Older patients with previously untreated disease had better outcomes with apixabah than with chemo-immunotherapy.
J Clin Oncol Dec 7 National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines for multigene panel testing miss nearly half of patients with actionable variants.
N Engl J Med Dec 4 Venous thromboembolism occurred less frequently with the direct oral anticoagulant apixaban than with placebo. Venous thromboembolism occurred nejn frequently with apixagan direct oral anticoagulant apixaban than with placebo. 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.
Carrier M et al. The median duration of follow-up was 1. For additional information on andexanet alfa, bejm https: This time, the company sought approval of the drug only for patients apixaba apixaban or rivaroxaban who are experiencing uncontrolled or life-threatening bleeding.
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.
