Description

Summary

Comparison of Oral anticoagulants (warfarin, apixaban and rivaroxaban) for extended VEnous Thromboembolism.

Official Title

Comparison of Oral Anticoagulants for Extended VEnous Thromboembolism (COVET)

Details

Determine if apixaban is superior to warfarin in the reduction of clinically relevant bleeding. Determine if rivaroxaban is superior to warfarin in the reduction of clinically relevant bleeding. Determine if apixaban is non-inferior to warfarin in the prevention of recurrent venous thromboembolism. Determine if rivaroxaban is non-inferior to warfarin in the prevention of recurrent venous thromboembolism. An exploratory comparison of apixaban versus rivaroxaban for the prevention of clinically relevant bleeding and recurrent Venous Thromboembolism (VTEs) as a secondary objective.

Eligibility

For people ages 18 years and up

3.1 Inclusion Criteria

To be eligible for this trial, patients must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Have confirmed acute, symptomatic, first lower extremity proximal DVT and/or PE that is NOT associated with a transient risk factor.
  • Have completed an initial treatment course of oral anticoagulant therapy for 3-12 months and have a recommendation from their provider to continue anticoagulation indefinitely.
  • Have the capacity to understand and sign an informed consent form.
  • Be 18 years of age and older.
  • Under the direct care of a healthcare provider for treatment of VTE for the length of time in the study.

3.2 Exclusion Criteria

If a patient meets any of the following criteria, he or she may not be enrolled in the study:

  • Creatinine clearance (CrCl) < 30 mL/min as determined by Cockcroft-Gault formula documented within 3 months from date of consent
  • Significant liver disease (Child-Pugh B or C)
  • Concomitant use of medications that are strong P-glycoprotein or CYP3A4 inducers/inhibitors
  • Another indication for chronic therapeutic-dose anticoagulation, such as atrial fibrillation (i.e., rivaroxaban, 10 mg daily, or apixaban, 2.5 mg twice daily, would not be appropriate therapy)
  • A clinical indication for a specific anticoagulant regimen (e.g., warfarin with a target INR of 2-3 is recommended for patients with 'triple-positive' antiphospholipid syndrome).
  • Life expectancy < 3 months
  • Currently pregnant or breast feeding
  • Unable / unwilling to pay for one (or more) of the treatment options
  • Active Cancer defined as:

Diagnosed with cancer within the past 6 months; or Recurrent, regionally advanced or metastatic disease; Currently receiving treatment or have received any treatment for cancer during the 6 months prior to randomization; or A hematologic malignancy not in complete remission

• Unwilling / unlikely to agree to follow up
