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.
