A Study of Rivaroxaban for Early Discharge of Low Risk Pulmonary Embolism From the Emergency Department

2015-10-26 14:18:48 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the study is to evaluate that low risk Pulmonary Embolism (PE) participants who are discharged from the Emergency Department (ED) to the home environment and treated with rivaroxaban as outpatients have fewer total days in the hospital for bleeding and/or venous thromboembolism (VTE) events through Day 30 compared to participants who are treated with initial hospitalization and standard-of-care.


This is a randomized (study medication is assigned by chance), open-label (all people know the identity of the intervention), parallel-group, multicenter (study conducted at multiple sites) study to evaluate that low risk PE participants who are discharged from the ED and treated with rivaroxaban compared to participants who are treated with initial hospitalization and standard-of-care. The study consists of a Screening and Randomization Period, followed by a 90-day open-label treatment period, and an end of study/early withdrawal (EOS) visit. The duration of study participation for each participant is approximately 3 months. The participants will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to one of two treatments. Safety will be monitored during the study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.

Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.

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.

The minimum acceptable patient care, based on statutes, court decisions, policies, or professional guidelines.
