DU-176b Phase 2 Dose Finding Study in Subjects With Non-valvular Atrial Fibrillation

23:53 EDT 16th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study will be conducted in male and female subjects aged 18 to 80 years, inclusive, with non-valvular AF and a CHADS2 Score of at least 1. Subjects will be treated on an outpatient basis. The subjects will be allocated randomly to the open-label warfarin or any double-blind DU-176b dosages. DU-176b will be administered orally for 12 weeks at two fixed doses. Warfarin will be used as active control. Warfarin dosing will be managed and monitored by the Investigator with the dose adjusted to achieve an INR of 2.0 to 3.0, inclusive. The primary endpoints are incidence of major, clinically relevant non-major and minor bleeding events (all bleeding).

Tablets coated with material that delays release of the medication until after they leave the stomach. (Dorland, 28th ed)

An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.

A disaccharide of GLUCOSE and GALACTOSE in human and cow milk. It is used in pharmacy for tablets, in medicine as a nutrient, and in industry.

Solid dosage forms, of varying weight, size, and shape, which may be molded or compressed, and which contain a medicinal substance in pure or diluted form. (Dorland, 28th ed)

Usually inert substances added to a prescription in order to provide suitable consistency to the dosage form. These include binders, matrix, base or diluent in pills, tablets, creams, salves, etc.
