Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited Announces European Commission Grants Marketing Authorisation for LIXIANA

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited announced that the European Commission (EC) has granted Marketing Authorisation for LIXIANA (edoxaban), an oral, once-daily selective factor Xa-inhibitor, for the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism in adult patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) with one or more risk factors, such as congestive heart failure, hypertension, age = 75 years, diabetes mellitus, prior stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA) as well as for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), and prevention of recurrent DVT and PE in adults. Atrial fibrillation (AF), a heart rhythm disorder in which the heartbeat is rapid and irregular, affects over six million Europeans.[1] People with AF are at a five-fold increased risk of stroke compared to the general population, with an estimated financial burden of over €38 billion a year. VTE, a condition where a blood clot forms in a vein, also represents a major cause of morbidity and mortality, resulting in over 500,000 deaths in the EU each year. The EC approval is based on two phase 3 clinical trials, ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 and Hokusai-VTE, which compared treatment with once-daily LIXIANA to warfarin, a current standard of care for stroke prevention in patients with AF or for the treatment and prevention of VTE. These studies represent the largest single comparative trials of a novel oral anticoagulant in these patient populations, involving 21,105 and 8,292 patients, respectively. In the ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 study, once-daily LIXIANA showed comparable efficacy (stroke or SEs) in comparison to warfarin (1.18% vs. 1.50% per year, LIXIANA 60 mg vs. warfarin respectively; hazard ratio [HR], 0.79; 97.5% confidence interval [CI], 0.63 to 0.99, pAbout LIXIANA (edoxaban). ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 (Effective aNticoaGulation with factor xA next GEneration in Atrial Fibrillation) was a three-arm, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, global phase 3 clinical trial comparing once-daily edoxaban with warfarin in 21,105 patients with NVAF at moderate-to-high risk of thromboembolic events at 1,393 centers in 46 countries. ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 compared two edoxaban treatment strategies, a higher dose arm (60 mg or 30 mg dose reduced) once-daily and a lower dose arm (30 mg or 15 mg dose reduced) once-daily, with warfarin in patients with NVAF for a median of 2.8 years. Patients were dose reduced for creatinine clearance (CrCL) 30 to 50 mL/min, body weight of 60 kg or less or certain p-glycoprotein inhibitor use. ENGAGE AF-TIMI 48 represents the large and longest single comparative global trial with a novel anticoagulant in patients with NVAF performed to date. The full results were presented at the AHA Scientific Sessions 2013 in Dallas and published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Hokusai-VTE was a global, event-driven, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group phase 3 clinical study involving 8,292 patients in 439 clinical sites across 37 countries to evaluate once-daily edoxaban with warfarin in patients with either acute symptomatic DVT, PE or both. The Hokusai-VTE study was designed to reflect clinical practice using a flexible treatment duration of 3-12 months in a broad spectrum of VTE patients, including initial use of parenteral anticoagulant (heparin) for at least 5 days, the proven global standard of care.

Daiichi Sankyo Initiates Hokusai-VTE Cancer Study to Evaluate the Role of Edoxaban in Patients with Venous Thromboembolism Associated with Cancer

Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited announced the initiation of Hokusai-VTE Cancer, a multinational study which will investigate the efficacy and safety of edoxaban, an oral, once-daily selective factor Xa inhibitor, versus dalteparin for the treatment of VTE associated with cancer (other than basal-cell or squamous-cell carcinoma of the skin) for whom long-term treatment with a low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) is intended.[1] The purpose of the study is to evaluate edoxaban in comparison with dalteparin in preventing the combined outcome of VTE recurrence or major bleeding following an acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) event in patients with cancer. The recruitment has started, and approximately 1,000 patients are expected to be enrolled in the study at clinical sites across 13 countries. Edoxaban is currently marketed in Japan, the U.S., and Switzerland, and has also been recommended for approval in the EU by the European Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP). In other countries, regulatory review is ongoing.
