Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Tranexamic Acid in Women Having Caesarean Section Birth [WOMAN-PharmacoTXA]

2020-02-20 18:46:26 | BioPortfolio


Intramuscular injection and oral solution of tranexamic acid (TXA) would increase its use in situations where administration of intravenous drugs is difficult. The investigators aim to assess the population pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of intravenous, intramuscular and oral TXA in women undergoing undergoing caesarean section (CS) with at least one known risk factor for postpartum haemorrhage (PPH)


An open label, randomised controlled trial to assess the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of intramuscular, intravenous and oral solution administration of tranexamic acid in women giving birth by caesarean section. 120 women (30 receiving oral liquid, 30 receiving intramuscular, 30 receiving intravenous and 30 receiving no TXA who have at least 6 evaluable PK samples will be randomised.
