Prophylaxis With Apixaban in Transplant Eligible Patients With Multiple Myeloma Receiving Induction Therapy With IMiDs

2019-10-02 07:21:32 | BioPortfolio


Interventional, no-randomized, open-label, and single arm multicentre study of apixaban for the prevention of thromboembolic events during induction therapy in transplant-eligible patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma who receive bortezomib, thalidomide, and dexamethasone (VTD) during the induction phase of therapy prior to autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT). The current study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of apixaban during the induction period. Efficacy will be defined as a composite endpoint of acute symptomatic proximal and distal deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, VTE related deaths, and acute ischemic stroke.


This study is designed to test the efficacy and safety of the oral anti factor Xa apixaban 2.5 mg given twice daily as a prophylaxis of VTE in transplant-eligible patients with multiple myeloma during the induction therapy with VTD.

Induction therapy prior to ASCT will consist in no less than 4 and no more than 6 cycles of VTD, depending on treatment response. Duration of each cycle is 4 weeks if there is not any disease or treatment-related complication; therefore, treatment duration will be around 4-6 months. Daily Prophylaxis with apixaban will continue up to a maximum of 14 days after the last dose of thalidomide. In addition, there will be an additional observation period of 14 (± 7) days, starting the day after the last dose of study medication (until 28 days after the end of the last cycle of VTD).

Apixaban or rivaroxaban in the treatment of acute venous thromboembolism?

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.

Obstruction of a vein or VEINS (embolism) by a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the blood stream.

Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.

Rare vascular anomaly involving a communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous circulation via diploe, the central spongy layer of cranial bone. It is often characterized by dilated venous structures on the scalp due to abnormal drainage from the intracranial venous sinuses. Sinus pericranii can be congenital or traumatic in origin.

A vascular anomaly characterized by a radial or wedge-shaped arrangement of dilated VEINS draining into a larger vein in the brain, spinal cord, or the meninges. Veins in a venous angioma are surrounded by normal nervous tissue, unlike a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM CAVERNOUS HEMANGIOMA that lacks intervening nervous tissue. Drainage of venous angioma is fully integrated with the body's venous system, therefore, in most cases there is no clinical signs and rare bleeding.
