New Phase II Data Show Safety of Once-Daily Oral Factor Xa Inhibitor, DU-176b, Comparable to Warfarin in Patients With Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation
Date:12/7/2008

ly DU-176b regimens was comparable to that with warfarin (3.0 percent, 3.8 percent and 3.2 percent, respectively). There were no significant differences in the numbers of patients with elevated liver enzymes or bilirubin across all treatment groups. Although the study was not powered to detect efficacy, there were no significant differences in the rates of secondary efficacy endpoints across treatment groups.

About Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat caused when the upper chambers of the heart (the atria) beat inconsistently and rapidly. When this happens, blood can become stagnant near the walls of the atria and form blood clots. These blood clots can break off and travel through the blood stream to the brain where they can plug blood vessels possibly causing a stroke. These clots can also cause damage to other organs in the body by blocking peripheral arteries.

Approximately 90,000 strokes in the U.S. result from atrial fibrillation.(2) Patients with atrial fibrillation have five times higher risk of having a stroke.(3) These patients also tend to have more serious first strokes than those without atrial fibrillation, resulting in higher mortality rates and longer hospital stays.(1)

About DU-176b

DU-176b is an oral anticoagulant that directly inhibits Factor Xa, a clotting factor in the blood. Daiichi Sankyo is developing DU-176b as a potential new treatment for the prevention of both arterial and venous thromboembolism. Notably, Daiichi Sankyo has more than 25 years experience conducting research in the area of Factor Xa inhibition and was the first company to test these compounds in humans.
