Idrabiotaparinux, a Biotinylated Long-Acting Anticoagulant, in the Treatment of Deep-Venous Thrombosis (EQUINOX Study): Safety, Efficacy, and Reversibility by Avidin [Abstract #32]
Harry Roger Buller, MD, PhD, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, Netherlands

This clinical trial found that six months of treatment with idrabiotaparinux, an anticoagulant and indirect Factor Xa inhibitor that links indraparinux to biotin, showed comparable efficacy to idraparinux alone with a trend toward less bleeding in patients with deep-vein thrombosis. Additionally, an infusion of avidin after the last idrabiotaparinux treatment led to a rapid reversal of the anti-Factor Xa activity, or the anticoagulant effect of the drug, which was sustained for at least five days. This study builds on previous research that showed similar efficacy and safety between once-weekly subcutaneous injections of indaparinux with standard treatment (low-molecular-weight heparin followed by a vitamin K antagonist) in the treatment of deep-vein thrombosis.

A total of 757 patients with symptomatic and confirmed deep-vein thrombosis were randomized to receive weekly subcutaneous injections of 3 mg idrabiotaparinux (385 patients) or 2.5 mg idraparinux (370 patients) for six months. The primary objective of the study was to determine whether idrabiotaparinux works in a similar manner to idraparinux (i.e., bioequipotency). The secondary objective of the study was occurrence of clinically relevant bleeding, death, or symptomatic recurrent venous thromboemolism at the end of six months of therapy.

A final objective included the reversal of the anticoagulant effect of idrabiotaparinux, as there are medically relevant instances, such as prior to surgery, when there is the need to reverse the effects of an anticoagulant. The reversal of the anticoagulant effe
