Xarelto Regulatory Post-Marketing Surveillance
This study is to identify the following problems and questions with respect to the safety and effectiveness of Xarelto in comparison with other pharmacologic agents in the prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in a large sample of patients who undergo elective total hip replacement (THR) or total knee replacement (TKR) in the real-life conditions in its registered indication(s) as required by Korean Food and Drug Administration (KFDA).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Bone Marrow Purging
Techniques for the removal of subpopulations of cells (usually residual tumor cells) from the bone marrow ex vivo before it is infused. The purging is achieved by a variety of agents including pharmacologic agents, biophysical agents (laser photoirradiation or radioisotopes) and immunologic agents. Bone marrow purging is used in both autologous and allogeneic BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION.
Pharmacologic agents in the form of a mist or spray delivered into the body through the mouth.
Chemistry dealing with the composition and preparation of agents having PHARMACOLOGIC ACTIONS or diagnostic use.
Alkaloids obtained from various plants, especially the deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna), variety acuminata; atropine, hyoscyamine and scopolamine are classical, specific antimuscarinic agents with many pharmacologic actions; used mainly as antispasmodics.
A broad category of chemical actions and uses that result in the prevention, treatment, cure or diagnosis of disease. Included here are drugs and chemicals that act by altering normal body functions, such as the REPRODUCTIVE CONTROL AGENTS and ANESTHETICS. Effects of chemicals on the environment are also included.
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of BAY59-7939 with the safety and efficacy of the licensed drug enoxaparin and a licensed oral vitamin K-antagonist and to f...
This is an exploratory investigation of safety, pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) effects of BAY59-7939 with multiple oral doses of 10 mg, 15 mg and 20 mg once daily (od) in Ja...
This study was a randomized, parallel group, open label trial using warfarin as comparator. Pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) were investigated only in BAY59-7939 groups (ori...
Patients undergoing surgery, especially hip and knee surgery, are at high risk for VTE. The administration of drugs for thromboprophylaxis, such as heparins, significantly lowers that risk...
The study drug, BAY59-7939, is a new drug currently being tested in the prevention of VTE. It directly inhibits factor Xa, a blood component in the pathway which leads to coagulation (clot...
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Several randomized controlled trials have shown that pharmacological thromboprophylaxis with low-dose unfractionated heparin (UFH), low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) or fondaparin...
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,...
Rivaroxaban (Xarelto®) is a new anticoagulant for the prevention and treatment of thromboembolic disorders. Rivaroxaban inhibits coagulation factor Xa directly, has high oral bioavailability, shows l...
Aims: The objective of this study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of rivaroxaban versus the low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWH) enoxaparin and dalteparin for the prevention of venous thromboem...
Abstract Background: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) and its long-term secondary complications are major health problems associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality and considerable costs for h...
