The activated serine protease factor Xa is a promising target for new anticoagulants. After studies on naturally occurring factor Xa inhibitors indicated that such agents could be effective and safe, research focused on small-molecule direct inhibitors of factor Xa that might address the major clinical need for improved oral anticoagulants. In 2008, rivaroxaban (Xarelto; Bayer HealthCare) became the first such compound to be approved for clinical use. This article presents the history of rivaroxaban's development, from the structure-activity relationship studies that led to its discovery to the preclinical and clinical studies, and also provides a brief overview of other oral anticoagulants in advanced clinical development.

A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
A COUP transcription factor that was originally identified as a homodimer that binds to a direct repeat regulatory element in the chicken albumin promoter. It is a transcription factor that plays an important role in EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.
